New Street: Why Vodafone below £1 looks like a particularly interesting opportunity

At the moment, given the falls, almost all telco stocks look as if they are screening attractively, but clearly the near-term macroeconomic future remains highly unpredictable. From our European universe, we pick out Vodafone as looking particularly attractive.

New Street: Further insight into 5G network planning with Three UK

This morning attended a very interesting regulatory briefing held by Three UK. Their perspective left us incrementally more positive on the UK’s 5G network deployments. Three provided support for our view that the ECC code has the potential to substantially reduce network opex in the UK, whilst proposed planning reforms should expedite the deployment of mMIMO antenna systems.

Int'l Insights: Bullish Stocks

EAFE > EM; Add exposure to Japan Continue to favor EAFE over EM. As long as the U.S. dollar remains elevated, we believe developed international (EAFE) will remain in a leadership position relative to EM (MSCI EM). Below we highlight attractive and actionable themes within developed int'l: • Japan, Switzerland, Australia, Canada. Major Japanese indexes have been underperforming for nearly two years but are making bullish price and RS inflections and exhibit early signs of bottoming. Switzerland, Australia, and Canada are all trading at multi-year highs and are among the most attractive coun...

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Buoyed by outperformance in the US, the MSCI ACWI is the only broad global index that has yet to make a lower low relative to the lows set in June. This deterioration for ACWI ex-US, EAFE, and EM, continued bearish-leaning indicators, and continued downside volatility in bond yields leads us to remain cautious and concerned that global equities remain vulnerable and could be poised for additional weakness moving forward. • Additional bearish-leaning developments. In addition to the concerns we have highlighted over the past several weeks, new negative developments continue to plague the glob...
