All eyes were on the social networking segment in week 23. Apple, Amazon, Google (Alphabet) and Facebook are apparently targeted for increased oversight in the US, from the FTC and the Department of Justice. Our consumer media index ended week 23 up 0.4 percent, lagging the S&P 500 (+4.4%). Snap, escaping the regulatory speculation, was the week's winner, up 17 percent, followed closely by Spotify (+12%). The week's biggest losers were AMC Entertainment (-10%) and RTL (-8.5%).
