(Bloomberg) -- Stock futures fluctuated after the biggest equity rally in nine months spurred speculation about excessive investor optimism amid stretched valuations and higher Treasury yields.S&P 500 contracts were little changed, following a broad-based rally that sent the benchmark gauge for American shares up almost 75% from the pandemic bottom. GameStop Corp. slipped in premarket trading after soaring 18% on Monday amid a surge in Reddit-favorite stocks. Zoom Video Communications Inc. climbed on an revenue forecast that topped analysts’ estimates, while Target Corp. rose as its fourth-quarter performance beat expectations.Read: Wall Street Bullishness Is Becoming a Contrarian Sell SignalStock market optimism among Wall Street strategists has risen close to levels that signaled trouble for equities in the past. A Bank of America measure of their bullishness is near a threshold that historically has been bearish for stocks. The gauge assesses the average recommended allocation to equities by strategists and is very close to triggering a sell signal.The correlation between real yields and U.S. equities dropped to its most negative level in five years last week. That strong inverse relationship suggests inflation-adjusted Treasury rates have reached levels where further gains could quickly send the S&P 500 lower, as they feed into steeper borrowing costs and lessen the appeal of other assets.There are some key events to watch this week:U.S. Federal Reserve Beige Book is due Wednesday.OPEC+ meeting on output Thursday.U.S. factory orders, initial jobless claims and durable goods orders are due Thursday.The February U.S. employment report on Friday will provide an update on the speed and direction of the nation’s labor market recovery.These are some of the main moves in markets:StocksFutures on the S&P 500 were little changed as of 9:20 a.m. New York time.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index rose 0.5%.The MSCI Asia Pacific Index declined 0.3%.The MSCI Emerging Market Index was little changed.CurrenciesThe Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index increased 0.1%.The euro dipped 0.1% to $1.2034.The Japanese yen depreciated 0.1% to 106.91 per dollar.BondsThe yield on 10-year Treasuries rose two basis points to 1.43%.Germany’s 10-year yield climbed one basis point to -0.33%.Britain’s 10-year yield dipped one basis point to 0.75%.CommoditiesWest Texas Intermediate crude gained 0.8% to $61.10 a barrel.Gold rose 0.3% to $1,730.05 an ounce.Silver fell 0.6% to $26.41 per ounce.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Volvo Cars set an ambitious goal to only sell battery cars by 2030, accelerating its plans after sales of electric vehicles surged.The Chinese-owned Swedish brand is rolling out a new lineup of electric cars and unveiled its second battery-only model, the C40 Recharge, on Tuesday. Going one step further than recent rivals’ decisions on EVs, Volvo’s electric vehicles will be available for sale only online, the company said in a statement.“Going electric will strengthen our brand, it means going into a growing segment,” Chief Executive Officer Hakan Samuelsson said in an interview. “Combustion cars are a shrinking segment.”Volvo’s move follows rivals including Jaguar Land Rover, General Motors Co. and Volkswagen AG announcing plans to electrify their offerings. In addition to tough emissions regulation, incredible valuations garnered by EV-only newcomers have been a wakeup call to accelerate the pace of change to survive industry upheaval.The decision also comes days after Volvo and Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd., both owned by parent Zhejiang Geely Holding Co., dropped a plan to merge to instead deepen ties to quicken the pace of development. The pair will share vehicle platforms, software stacks and advanced connectivity, and will hive off their powertrain activities into a separate unit.With the support of its Chinese owners, Volvo has ramped up investment in electric cars since 2017, when it first said it was planning to phase out vehicles that rely on combustion engines. Still, the company has only one fully electric model under its own brand name on the market, the compact crossover XC40 Recharge. In addition, Polestar, which is jointly owned by Volvo and Geely, launched its challenger to Tesla Inc.’s Model 3 in 2019.Volvo has previously said it will plough roughly 5% of annual revenue into research and development, and that amount will be enough to finance the EV push, Samuelsson told reporters. The company sold more than 660,000 cars last year and reported full-year revenue of 263 billion Swedish kronor ($31.2 billion).The C40 Recharge, sitting lower than the XC40 Recharge with a sloping roof, is the first Volvo that’ll have no combustion sibling and it’ll sell online only. It’ll be built on the same platform as the the XC40 and feature a range of 420 kilometers (261 miles).By 2025, Volvo expects half of the cars it sells to be fully electric and the other half to be hybrids, including so-called mild hybrids that don’t feature a plug. Volvo has been selling cars online as part of its Care by Volvo subscription offering in since 2016.The Care by Volvo concept will now be expanded to include outright sales, with a package for maintenance, roadside assistance as well as insurance. By 2025, about half of all purchases are expected to be made online, said Lex Kerssemakers, Volvo’s head of commercial operations. That’s up from as much as 15% currently through Volvo’s subscription service.All online purchases will be completed at a non-negotiable fixed price through Volvo’s own website, while dealers remain as part of the sales, service and delivery process, Volvo said.“This is about bringing the online and offline experience together,” said Kerssemakers. “Set prices will help save people hopping from one dealer to the next.”(Updates with new model, CEO comment in third, executive comment in last paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
