Singapore is Rolling Out 5G by 2020. Should the Telcos be Worried?
The Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) announced in a press release on 7 May 2019 that they have launched a public consultation to seek views from industry and the public on the appropriate regulatory frameworks and policies to implement a 5G network in Singapore.

As a quick introduction, StarHub is one of the three Singapore companies in the telecommunications industry, behind Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) and ahead of M1 Ltd (SGX: B2F).

The Week Ahead: Singtel, SATS And Singapore Airlines
So, now we know. US importers that bring Chinese-made goods into America must pay a tariff of 25% on some US$200 billion worth of items,  rather than just 10%. China is unlikely to take this lying down. It has threatened to retaliate. We wait with bated breath. Staying in America, retail sales for April could provide some clues to the impact of higher import prices on consumer spending. They are expected to show a sharp drop in growth from the previous month. But retail sales growth in China in April could be almost unchanged from the previous month at 8.7%. Malaysia will report retail sales for March. It is expected to have grown 7.7% from a year ago, which would be slower than the 8.5% in February. Malaysia is also expected to say that the economy grew at an annualised rate of 4.5% in

The Fed and ECB Are Making Yield Plays In Fashion, Again
Earlier this month, the US Federal Reserve came to a decision to maintain a larger balance sheet relative to the pre-2008 crisis period. This decision to end quantitative tightening came earlier after much internal deliberation. Revising Balance Sheet Normalisation Principles The Fed also announced the revision and replacement of its balance sheet normalisation principles. It will cease downsizing its balance sheet starting from October 2019. It will focus on holding treasury securities while its holdings of mortgage-backed securities gradually run-off to zero. Starting from October 2019, principal repayments received from mortgage-backed securities would be reinvested in treasury securities, subject to a maximum of US$20 billion per month.

The only bright spot was the S-REIT sector as it outperformed on the Fed’s dovish interest rate hike forecast.
