The telecom giants have embarked on different strategies.
AT&T is diversifying: It acquired Time Warner in June in a deal that raised its debt load and repayment obligations.
Verizon is concentrating its resources on its network infrastructure and the coming rollout of 5G. Strong subscriber growth and a healthier balance sheet have boosted Verizon’s shares.
The Federal Reserve is also expected to raise rates for a fifth straight quarter in December.
There’s debate over where the neutral rate lies. That’s the rate at which monetary policy neither supports nor restricts economic growth -and where the Fed should halt rate hikes. Two hikes in 2019 would bring the target rate to 3.0%.
The Fed is set to become more data-dependent. An unexpected job slowdown or jump in inflation could spur a change in course.
