Walt Disney once more dominated the news in the global media market. The Telecompaper Stock Index (TPSI) Global Consumer Media performed in line (-2.1%) with the S&P 500 index (-2.2%) in week 19. Other news was mostly earnings and streaming video related. ITV, Snap and McClathcy all lost 11 percent, whereas Sinclair Broadcast was the week's biggest winner with a gain of no less than 38 percent. This puts Sinclair easily on top in the year-to-date view, gaining 135 percent. Snap, winning 90 percent, nearly doubled from the end of 2018.
