NEW YORK, Jan 29 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures climbed on Thursday, rebounding after two days of sharp losses, ahead of housing and labor market data and another busy day for corporate earnings.

* The S&P 500 dropped on Tuesday and Wednesday, seeing its first back-to-back declines of more than 1 percent since October, dragged by plummeting energy shares after U.S. crude prices dropped to near six-year lows as the U.S. government reported record-high inventories.

* Alibaba Group shares fell 6 percent in premarket trading after it posted revenue that missed Wall Street expectations. The decline took shares of Yahoo, which announced the spinoff of its Alibaba stake Tuesday, down 4.8 percent.

* Coach Inc shares rose 6.7 percent in premarket trading after the handbag maker posted a better-than-expected quarterly profit.

* Ford shares gained 2 percent in premarket trading after quarterly earnings beat Wall Street earnings expectations and the automaker maintained its 2015 profit forecast.

* Data due on Thursday includes weekly jobless claims applications at 8:30 a.m. (1330 GMT) and December pending home sales at 10:00 a.m. (1500 GMT).   Continuación...
