TSX has room to run

first_img Thematic funds thrived during pandemic, but watch long-term performance: report Related news Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Data on international securities transactions shows that foreigners are ramping up purchases of Canadian equities, “which is helping boost the index,” the report says. The reasons for this renewed interest in Canadian equities, the report suggests, includes stronger oil prices, and the federal government’s move to supply further fiscal stimulus to boost economic growth. “Perhaps investors expect the TSX to catch up after the Canadian stock market lagged many major bourses last year,” the report adds. “Indeed, after last year’s collapse, Canadian equities look relatively cheap based on PE ratios,” it says. “If one excludes the depressed resources sector, the difference between U.S. forward PE’s and Canadian ones is high by historic standards. That suggests the TSX has room to run,” the report concludes.

The system will cover all 4G and 5G devices, and will also be capable of running in a multi-vendor environment.Deploying the slicing capability can be completed through a software upgrade on existing LTE and non standalone 5G networks, and subsequently standalone 5G networks, it added.Revenue opportunitiesNokia invited operators to begin preparing strategies for their network slicing businesses for LTE and 5G NR, ahead of launch.Slicing, a function for next-generation networks, is widely tipped to open new opportunities for operator collaboration with enterprises in areas including IoT, fixed wireless access, applications and content related services.From a private slicing aspect, Nokia said there were added opportunities in areas including surveillance and automation.Tommi Uitto, president of Mobile Networks at Nokia said 4G and 5G slicing “enables multiple new use cases, which operators can start building now to create new revenue streams”.
