Yellen in sharp exchange with Republican senator over IMF plan to expand reservesTreasury Secretary Janet Yellen had a sharp exchange Wednesday during a Senate hearing with Sen. John Kennedy, Republican of Louisiana, over a renewed plan by the International Monetary Fund to issue $650 billion in new reserves, known as Special Drawing Rights, to member states. IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva on Tuesday said she would present the plan to the IMF's executive board in June. The IMF first floated the plan last year as a way to help countries pay for the costs of battling the coronavirus. But it was blocked by the Trump administration and then-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Republicans in Congress are unhappy the IMF plan has been resuscitated. They note that China, Russia and Venezuela will benefit from the new reserve allocation. Kennedy said the Biden administration was making an end-run around Congress and alleged the IMF plan would cost American taxpayers "$180 billion." Yellen grew frustrated as the exchange went on. She said the U.S. would earn interest on its new SDRs so that the cost of the program would be a "wash." "I don't know where you got a number like that from." Yellen said.

Adidas announces partnership with PelotonAdidas AG announced a partnership with fitness company Peloton Interactive Inc. during its investor event. Adidas gave no further detail about the alliance, except to say that more detail would come on March 18. "We're going to be very specific of what's coming out," said Kasper Bo Rørsted, chief executive of Adidas, during the event, according to FactSet. "[I]t's taken really into the context of our expansion of our training business and our focus also on women." Adidas stock has rallied nearly 67% over the past year. Peloton stock is up more than 406% for the period. And the S&P 500 index is up 66.3% for the last 12 months. "At-home fitness is here to stay, with a growing set of operators beginning to capitalize on what has been perceived as solo-Peloton territory, driving its valuation multiples much higher than its revenue growth, leading us to believe in ongoing risk even after the recent share drop," wrote BMO Capital Markets in a note published last week. "It's clear established brands and retailers are taking notice and partnering up; we expect multiple beneficiaries to emerge."

Dow opens higher but tech stocks come under pressure Monday as investors wrestle with rise in Treasury yieldsStock-index benchmarks were trading mostly higher Monday morning, with tech-related shares under pressure as government bond yields extended their climb following Senate passage of a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package. The Dow Jones Industrial Average [: DJIA] was trading up 121 points, or 0.4%, at 31,606, the S&P 500 index climbed 0.1% at 3,842, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was off 0.2% at 12,899. Expectations that aggressive fiscal spending coupled with a rapidly reopening economy as vaccine rollouts continue have fueled expectations for at least a near-term surge in inflation. That, in turn, has contributed to a rise in bond yields which has helped fuel a rotation away from growth-oriented stocks with high valuations toward stocks that have been left behind in the stock market's post-COVID recovery. In corporate news, shares of AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. surged as the "meme" stock's bounce from last month's plunge continued, after Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter doubled his price target ahead of the company's earnings report, citing an increasing optimism over the post-pandemic environment. Pachter raised his target for the stock to $5.00 from $2.50, but that target was 38% below Friday's closing price of $8.05. Shares of AMC and GameStop Corp. have been a focus of retail investors and short sellers of late. GameStop tapped Chewy co-founder Ryan Cohen to lead its e-commerce shift, according to reports.
