    The Fed Has Solved the Bond Market’s Pension Puzzle

    One of this year’s bond-market mysteries might be solved: After the Federal Reserve revised one of its key data releases, strategists now know where U.S. corporate pension plans have been investing. Corporate pension plans, which manage $1.6 trillion in assets, have been in the spotlight this year, thanks to a quirk in the U.S.’s new tax law. Specifically, pension contributions made during the “grace period” before Sept. 15 could be deducted at 2017’s higher tax rate, while contributions made afterward will probably need to be deducted at the lower corporate tax rate that goes into effect next year.

    AT&T stock gains after UBS upgrades to buy

    Shares of AT&T Inc. are up 1.4% in premarket trading Friday after UBS analyst John Hodulik upgraded the stock to buy from neutral, citing a valuation that's near an all-time low and the widest valuation gap relative to Verizon Communications Inc. . "Wireless remains the key and should post solid growth," Hodulik wrote. "Improving ARPU [average revenue per user] trends across the industry (and limited iPhone promos) attest to the benign competitive environment." He sees room for AT&T and Verizon to benefit from the rise of 5G "given other carriers' inability to invest in 5G at competitive levels." Hodulik raised his price target to $38 from $33. The stock is down 13% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 17%.
