Fed's Harker backs starting taper 'sooner rather than later'Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker said he wanted to move toward tapering asset purchases "sooner rather than later." In an interview with CNBC, Harker said that he didn't think the $120 billion per month of asset purchases were "doing a whole lot right now." The economy is being held back by supply issues that lower interest rates can't solve, he said. Harker said he was still supportive of "moving the taper along" despite potential damage to the economy from the coronavirus delta variant. The Philadelphia Fed president said the rapid acceleration in inflation seen this year "may not be so transitory." Contacts in his district have said supply chain disruptions facing the home-building sector "won't be solved anytime soon," he said. Harker won't be a voting member of the Fed's interest-rate committee until 2023.

Fed's Kaplan says central bank should announce taper plans in SeptemberDallas Fed President Rob Kaplan said Wednesday that he will press his colleagues at the central bank to announce a plan to taper bond purchases at its next meeting in late September. In an interview on CNBC, Kaplan said he wanted the slow down in purchases to start in October and last until June. Kaplan has been pressing his colleagues to start to pull back on its $120 billion in monthly bond and mortgage-related securities since late April. Asked if he had a lot of support from his colleagues for his position, Kaplan said there was a "range of views" but the committee is in a much better place than it was two months. Kaplan said the asset purchases don't help the economy now because the trouble is with the supply of goods and workers. Asset purchases work best to spur demand, he said. Kaplan ducked questions about whether his timetable meant that the Fed will raise interest rates as soon as next year. He said he was "divorcing" his views on tapering from his decisions on when to hike rates.

Fed Vice Chairman Clarida says it is not time yet to talk about taperingFederal Reserve Vice Chairman Richard Clarida on Wednesday said it was not time yet to begin conversations about possibly scaling back the central bank's asset purchases. The Fed is buying $120 billion per month of Treasurys and mortgage-related securities as well as keeping interest rates close to zero in order to stimulate the economy. The Fed has said it wants to see "substantial further progress" on its goals of full employment and stable inflation before tapering. Asked when the Fed should start "talking about talking about" tapering, Clarida replied: "We don't think so right now." Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan said earlier this week it was time to start the discussion about tapering. Several Fed officials speaking on Wednesday have all disagreed with Kaplan. "We'll get more data -and as we move through the year- we will be able to make a judgement on 'substantial further progress,' but we're not there yet," Clarida said.

Fed's Evans says chances of persistently higher inflation are 'remote'The chances that the $2.8 trillion stimulus measures passed by Congress since December will overheat the economy and generate higher inflation are remote, said Chicago Fed President Charles Evans on Wednesday. Inflation is likely to pick up in coming months as people resume normal activities and some bottlenecks emerge but simulations performed by economists at the Chicago Fed see inflation topping out at less than a full percentage point and dissipating in two or three years, Evans said in a speech to the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College. "We still have some ways to go before we meet our goals" of full employment and stable 2% average inflation, Evans said. As a result, Fed policy "is likely on hold for some time," he added. Labor market conditions required to move interest rates off zero or to start to taper the $120 billion in monthly asset purchases "will not be met for a while," he said.

UPDATE: Goodyear announces offering of $1 billion of high-yield bonds, amends credit agreementThe Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. said Wednesday it has commenced a $1 billion offering of high-yield 10-year and 12-year bonds.

Goodyear announced a deal to acquire rival Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. in February in a $2.8 billion deal. Separately, the company said it has reached an agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank NA and other lenders to amend and restate a credit agreement relating to its U.S. first lien revolving credit facility. The agreement will raise the principal it can borrow to $2.75 billion, lowers interest rates and extends the maturity date. Goodyear shares were down 3.64 premarket, but have gained 61% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 5%.

M.D.C. Holdings stock sinks after BofA turns bearish, citing valuation and affordability concernsShares of M.D.C. Holdings Inc. sank 5.9% in morning trading Friday, after BofA Securities analyst John Lovallo turned bearish on the homebuilder, citing concerns over valuation and near-term housing affordability. He cut his rating to underperform from neutral, while keeping his price target at $63. "We view M.D.C. as a well-run, well-positioned homebuilder but believe the year-to-date run in the stock fully encompasses these positive, particularly considering the affordability challenges we expect in the months ahead," Lovallo wrote in a note to clients. The stock has rallied 26.4% year to date, and closed at a 16-year high on Wednesday. Lovallo said affordability could be hurt by rising raw materials prices and interest rates, and as coming stimulus measures support further gains in home prices. M.D.C.'s stock selloff comes as the iShares U.S. Home Construction ETF shed 2.3%, while the S&P 500 fell 0.5%. Among M.D.C.'s more active peers, shares of D.R. Horton Inc. slid 4.4%, Lennar Corp. lost 4.0%, PulteGroup Inc. declined 3.2% and Toll Brothers Inc. gave up 3.7%.
