NEW YORK, July 25 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures edged lower on Friday, weighed by weak results including those from Amazon, and ahead of data on durable goods.

* The S&P 500 closed Thursday at a record high and was within 0.5 percent of hitting 2,000.

* Data on orders for long-lasting U.S. manufactured goods for June is due at 8:30 a.m. EDT (1230 GMT).

* Amazon shares tumbled more than 10 percent in premarket trading after investment in new businesses cut into earnings and the company reported a much larger-than-expected loss in the second quarter.

* S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 3 points and fair value - a formula that evaluates pricing by taking into account interest rates, dividends and time to expiration on the contract - indicated a lower open. Dow Jones industrial average e-mini futures fell 17 points and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures lost 11 points.

* Visa shares fell 2.6 percent in premarket trading after the world's largest credit and debit card company cut its revenue forecast for the year.   Continuación...
