The slump for stocks came as gold futures jumped, settling above their 200-day moving average and marking the highest finish for the most-active contract since early February. Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Richard Clarida, the Fed's No.2, said the U.S. economy had yet to reach the "substantial further progress" that would be needed to peel back accommodative policies, even as investors fear that inflation is set to run hotter than the central bank is predicting.

Netflix bear gets a little more bearish on concerns over potential crackdown on password sharingShares of Netflix Inc. slipped 0.6% in afternoon trading, to buck the gains seen in the broader market, after Benchmark analyst Matthew Harrigan became a little more bearish on the streaming video company, citing concerns over the potential negative effects of . While Netflix's stock fell, the Nasdaq Composite surged 0.6% and the S&P 500 gained 0.3%. Harrigan kept his rating at sell, but cut his stock price target to $472 from $485. His new target was more than 8% below current prices. Harrigan, one of the four of 41 analysts surveyed by FactSet who have bearish ratings on Netflix, said the stock's appeal has been "dampened" by Walt Disney Co.'s Disney+ now being regarded as a certain near-streaming peer to Netflix by mid-decade, and as the "stay-at-home" trade fades for the stock, with Netflix needing "compelling" content every month to stave off churn. He said a crackdown on password sharing could make matters worse. "We believe that any broad crackdown on password sharing could revive past pricing sensitivity concerns for likely marginal users, even though recent Netflix price increases have been readily absorbed by its base," Harrigan wrote in a note to clients.

ViacomCBS downgraded to rare underperform rating at BMO Capital, citing valuation concernsViacomCBS Inc. was downgraded Monday to a rare bearish rating at BMO Capital, with analyst Daniel Salmon saying, "This stream has run too far." Salmon cut his rating to underperform, after being at market perform since August 2019. He bumped up his price target to $70 from $60, but that new target is 28.2% below current levels. The stock rallied 2.7% toward a record in afternoon trading, putting it on track for a fourth straight gain and 11th gain in 12 sessions. It rose 27.9% last week for the 12th straight weekly gain, and the best weekly performance since April 2020. Salmon said he believes the new Paramount+ streaming service will drive the subscriber narrative in the short terms, and he thinks it might be "challenging" for a new streaming product, "as the pandemic wains and competitors like Peacock offer differentiated content like the Summer and Winter Olympics" in the next 12 months. In addition, he said Paramount's box-office market share has lagged the likes of Walt Disney Co. , Universal, WarnerBros in recent years, and could underperform again as theaters reopen more widely as COVID-19-related restrictions ease. ViacomCBS is now just one of 2.3% of the U.S. companies covered by BMO analysts that are rated underperform, while Salmon rates both rivals Disney and Netflix Inc. at outperform. ViacomCBS's stock has rocketed 177.5% over the past three months, while Disney shares have advanced 12.6%, Netflix's stock has lost 1.9% and the S&P 500 has gained 6.8%.

Nasdaq marks first correction since September as Dow books biggest outperformance against peer indexes in yearsThe Nasdaq Composite index registered its first correction since early September and the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished higher on Monday, producing its biggest outperformance compared against its peer benchmarks in years, even as the stock market's gains faded into the close. The session was marked by bumpy trade that has been credited to a rise in benchmark bond yields which are hanging around their highest levels in a year, making pricey, technology and tech-related stocks comparatively less attractive. The Dow closed up 1% at around 31,802, the S&P 500 index fell 0.5%, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index closed down 2.4%, and registered its first correction, defined as a decline of at least 10% from a recent peak, since Sept. 9. The 10-year Treasury yield touched the highest level in over a year Friday before pulling back somewhat, booking its fifth straight weekly rise. The Dow was on track to book its widest outperformance against the S&P 500 since 1971, according to Dow Jones Market Data and the biggest outperformance against the Nasdaq since 2001. The moves on the day come after the Senate's passage over the weekend of a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package. Meanwhile, AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. shares were 13% higher after scoring a price-target increase from Wedbush, while those for GameStop Corp. surged after the company appointed a strategy committee that included Chewy Inc. co-founder Ryan Cohen.
