Dear Smart Investor,
The Singapore government announced that the country will be heading back to Phase II of its reopening starting 8 May.
Singapore’s stock market suffered four consecutive days of decline due in part to this announcement.
However, companies are reporting healthier earnings amid optimism that things will get better.
United Overseas Bank (SGX: U11), or UOB, as well as OCBC Ltd (SGX: O39) have just reported robust sets of earnings, lending support to the belief that the economy is slowly healing.
As the banks form the bulwark of the economy, an assessment of their results will provide ample information on how businesses are coping with the pandemic.
Recent shake-ups in the media industry also deserve attention.
Verizon (NYSE: VZ) announced that it sold off its media businesses Yahoo and American Online to Apollo Global Management, a private equity firm, for US$5 billion.
And back home, Singapore Press Holdings (SGX: T39), or SPH, released a stunning announcement regarding the restructuring of its media business.
