The Romantics - Talking in Your Sleep

The Romantics achieved substantial popularity in the United States, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, and Australia, with their two best-charting songs "What I Like About You", peaking at #49 in the US and #2 in Australia, and "Talking in Your Sleep", reaching #3 in the US, #1 in Canada, and #14 in Australia. Romanticism (also known as the Romantic era) was an artistic, literary, musical, and intellectual movement that originated in Europe towards the end of the 18th century, and in most areas was at its peak in the approximate period from 1800 to 1850. Romanticism was characterized by its emphasis on emotion and individualism as well as glorification of all the past and nature, preferring the ... Harve Presnell, Actor: Fargo.

2021.12.06 12:06 y_angelov AT&T vs Verizon vs T-Mobile: Are they worth the investment?

Video Summary: https://youtube.com/watch?v=qWw418Ihc64&feature=share
The next step for telecommunications around the world is 5G. In the US, the three largest providers in the field are Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T. The question here is can they offer us a good return on our investment? The obvious choice for industries like telecommunications are the biggest players in the country. Like I said, in the US those players are Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T so lets dig in and find out which one has the best bullish case.
Operations Lets start with operations. The amount of wireless subscribers is probably the most important metric to look at because it gives us a good idea of whether the operations of the companies are actually expanding. Plus, it is the main and biggest source of revenue for all three of these companies. Verizon has the most subscribers, currently sitting at 121.3 million, followed by T-Mobile with 104.8 million and AT&T with 97.8 million. Verizon acquired TracFone last year, which boosted their subscriber numbers, but apart from that there was no massive change in subscribers for any of the companies. Verizon has also recently broken the record for most awarded brand by JD Power for Wireless Network Quality with 27 consecutive number one awards. Good product quality is always important so that's a positive for Verizon in my books. Plus, they literally service 99% of the Fortune 500 companies and have partnerships with tech leaders like Amazon, Microsoft and Google. Right now, it seems like the main priority for all three companies is to improve their 5G network and capability. T-Mobile is the leader in 5G with best download speeds and highest coverage of 295 million having access to its 5G services, out of which 140 million people having access to its fastest service . AT&T's fast 5G coverage is only half T-Mobile's and Verizon is lagging behind with only a quarter of the fast 5G coverage of T-Mobile although their total coverage is similar to T-Mobile's. However, AT&T's 5G has a partnership with Microsoft Azure and Verizon's 5G has partnered with AWS. Such partnerships with major cloud providers are definitely a plus.
Verizon had Verizon Media which comprised of brands like AOL and Yahoo, but Verizon sold its media assets to a private equity company called Apollo Global Management on the 1st of September. The media business was a relatively fast-growing part of Verizon so I'm personally not the biggest fan of that sale. Still, Verizon Media made up only 6.2% of Verizon's total revenue in Q2 so it is a fairly small segment, but it will affect Verizon's revenue and profit going forward. In comparison, AT&T owns Warner Media so you can tell it is a much bigger chunk of its revenue at 21.2% in the third quarter of 2021. They own HBO and HBO Max which have seen an additional 12.5 million subscribers in the past year to a total of 69.4 million subscribers globally. Unfortunately, the gains there were offset by less cinema screenings over the past year although things are obviously picking back up again and we should see better results in the next quarters. Some more bad news, AT&T will be spinning off Warner Media in mid-2022 so that means a big chunk of revenue will be lost next year! I think this will end up badly for AT&T, especially since Warner Media is one of their more profitable segments! Putting that aside, other revenue sources include wireless equipment sales which make up 16.3% of Verizon's revenue, 12.7% of AT&T's revenue and 23.8% of T-Mobile's revenue. Even though it's a big chunk of T-Mobile's revenue, the company actually saw a 5.9% decrease in wireless equipment sales while AT&T saw an 11.4% increase and Verizon saw a massive 30% jump in equipment revenues, which is another plus for Verizon although the question here is whether they can actually keep that up.
Revenue and Earnings Alright, so we now have a good idea of what operations Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have. What does their revenue and earnings look like though? AT&T has the biggest revenue at $39.9 billion in Q3 of 2021, down 5.7% from last year. Their total revenue for the last 12 months stands at $173.6 billion, which is almost identical to the same period last year, meaning there was no growth. Verizon follows in second place with a $32.9 billion revenue in Q3 of 2021, up 4.3% from last year. Their total revenue for the last 12 months stands at $134.2 billion which is slightly up compared to the same period last year when they had a revenue of $128.4 billion. Finally, T-Mobile brought in a revenue of $19.6 billion in Q3 of 2021 compared to $19.3 billion last year. Last year, T-Mobile saw a massive jump in revenue which was mainly because of their merger with Sprint which closed on 1st April last year, but the growth since then has been much slower. For the last 12 months, T-Mobile's revenue was $79.7 billion up from $60 billion last year, but again that's because of the two companies merging. Overall, Verizon and AT&T have seen a relatively small revenue growth over the last 5 years, less than 2% per year, and they only expect a 1% revenue increase next year. In comparison, T-Mobile's revenue has doubled since 2016, which is massive compared to Verizon and AT&T, but again only a small revenue increase of under 3% is expected next year. What about their earnings though? Verizon have the best net margins at 16.4% which have doubled from an 8% in 2015. Plus, Verizon raised their EPS guidance for 2021 by almost 5%. AT&T's normal margins sit at around 9% although they've had a 0.7% net margin in the past year which are due to write-offs and impairments surrounding their media business. Finally, T-Mobile have the lowest margins with 4.2% right now although their historical average is about 5 or 6%. T-Mobile also have a negative free cash flow unlike the other two, which is a bit concerning. It's not a one-off either as they haven't had a positive free cash flow since 2016! That is most likely due to their faster expansion because telecommunications is extremely capital-intensive, but it is still worrying to see that with T-Mobile. In 2022, AT&T is expected to see a 4.4% drop in earnings while Verizon's earnings are expected to stay essentially flat with only a 0.3% earnings growth, but T-Mobile is looking at a 39.2% earnings growth although that follows after a drop of 32% in 2021. I personally don't think we will see such a big growth from T-Mobile and, to be fair, analysts have been reducing their expectations, too. There are just a lot of uncertainties in the market and the economy and a lot can change over the next year.
Financial Health We can see that these companies are making a lot of cash, but how healthy are their financials? What does their debt look like? Well, surprisingly, AT&T has the lowest debt-to-equity ratio with a 100%, followed by T-Mobile with 106% and finally Verizon with 191.8%! However, Verizon has the lowest effective interest rate with only 1.88% compared to 3.07% for T-Mobile and 3.31% for AT&T. What that means is that even though Verizon has exactly twice the debt of AT&T, their interest payments actually are not that much higher! Also, telecommunications is a very capital-intensive business so this type of debt levels are actually normal for the industry. None of the three companies has substantial cash and none of them can cover their current liabilities with their current assets. However, their quick ratios are just under 1 so the situation is not that bad.
Dividend Before we move to the valuation, we need to look at the dividend. Telecom stocks are not typically fast growers so their dividend is important to investors. AT&T has the highest dividend at 9.4%, but they are expected to cut it by almost half next year following the sale of Warner Media. Verizon follows with a 5.1% dividend while T-Mobile does not pay a dividend at all! Both AT&T and Verizon pay a higher-than-average dividend. Both of them have increased their dividend every year over the last 10 years although Verizon is the company that can actually afford to pay it. Their payout ratio is 47% whereas AT&T's one is massive, 1,578% although that's skewed due to the write-offs I mentioned earlier. Still, AT&T has a historically higher payout ratio than Verizon so that's worth keeping in mind. Lets also take a look at share buybacks since they are another way of returning money to shareholders. Verizon and T-Mobile have not bought back any shares in the last 3 years, but AT&T has actually reduced their number of outstanding shares by 2.5% since 2018.
Valuation Okay, we've covered the dividend so lets value the companies. Are they cheap right now? Looking at their current PE, we can see that Verizon is the cheapest with 9.5, followed by T-Mobile with 39.8 and AT&T with 168.2. Obviously, the current PE can be misleading, but if we take a look at their forward PE, we see that AT&T is the cheapest with only 7.3, followed by Verizon with 9.6 and T-Mobile with 32. In terms of the Price-to-earnings-growth ratio, T-Mobile is the cheapest with a 1.11, followed by Verizon with 2.9 and AT&T with 9.6. Finally, AT&T is the cheapest in terms of book value with a PB ratio of 1.04, T-Mobile follows with 2.07 and Verizon with 2.93.
Conclusion How can we interpret all of this? Well, AT&T seems to be the cheapest out of the three stocks right now, followed by Verizon. T-Mobile is massively overvalued right now, most likely by investors betting on T-Mobile dominating the 5G market. I honestly cannot see the bullish case for T-Mobile though. Even if they completely dominate the 5G market, they still have such low margins, negative free cash flow and a lot of costs related to capital expenditure. I just don't see them justifying this high price any time soon, definitely not in the next 2 or 3 years. Despite being cheap, AT&T is also a no-go in my books. Why? Their main selling point is their dividend. AT&T will be cutting this in half while also selling their high margin Warner Media subsidiary. Essentially, there is no point to hold them for the dividend and they will also lag behind in revenue and profits so there is no value play there either. It just seems like their best days are behind them. They currently trade for $22.2 which is half of their all-time high back in July 1999. 22 years ago! They have not been able to come close to that price and, in my opinion, they will not do that in the next 5 years. Definitely not worth the investment. You can just stick your money in an index fund and you will get much better returns without having to do more than 5 minutes of research. Plus, AT&T's price is likely to drop further once the Warner Media sale is closed and their dividend drops. The only good purchase here is Verizon. They have a solid dividend, decent margins, they can provide stability during volatile markets. However, they are not expected to grow much. No growth typically equals no jump in price. We can value their free cash flow as much as we want, but if investors don't buy the stock, the price will lag behind the S&P. Still, I think there is a case for Verizon if we see continued inflation or an increase in interest rates. As I said, Verizon's dividend is also solid, which is great for income portfolios or for balancing out your risk. However, if you are looking for price appreciation, a simple US index fund like SPY or VGT will probably outperform Verizon. There are some companies that can offer you a better return so check out my stock picks here if you are interested. Let me know what you think about Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile down below.
P.S. This is one of the occasions where you spend a weekend researching companies only to come to the conclusion that SPY calls probably offers better returns! I hope you find this useful though :)

2021.12.06 12:06 TaurusBit AirPlay fails to connect in multiple subnets setup

I have a rather complicated setup in my home network.
The internet router is configured to use the 192.168.0.x subnet. I connected a Raspberry Pi to a LAN port. Then I configured the Raspberry to to work as wireless access point (using hostapd) with DHCP serving addresses in the 192.168.10.x subnet (using DNSmasq), also tunneling all traffic through a VPN gateway so that all devices connected to the Raspberry's wireless network will route all traffic through the VPN. Working just fine.

echo "10 vpn" >> /etc/iproute2/rt_tables ip rule add from 192.168.10.0/24 table vpn ip rule add to 192.168.10.0/24 table vpn 
OpenVPN will setup the routes after the connection using a route-up script:
# wait for all interfaces to be ready sleep 10 #Clear all routes on vpn routing table (this is to make sure there isn't any crap left over from a previous vpn connection /sbin/ip route flush table vpn #Copy routing table from main routing table into vpn table /sbin/ip route show table main | grep -Ev ^default | while read ROUTE ; do ip route add table vpn $ROUTE; done #Add default gateway to vpn routing table /sbin/ip route add default via ${route_vpn_gateway} dev ${dev} table vpn 
And this is what the routes configuration looks like.
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo ip route show table vpn default via 10.8.0.1 dev tun0 10.8.0.0/24 dev tun0 proto kernel scope link src 10.8.0.4 192.168.0.0/24 dev eth0 proto dhcp scope link src 192.168.0.10 metric 202 192.168.10.0/24 dev wlan0 proto dhcp scope link src 192.168.10.1 metric 303 pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo ip route show table main default via 192.168.0.1 dev eth0 src 192.168.0.10 metric 202 10.8.0.0/24 dev tun0 proto kernel scope link src 10.8.0.4 192.168.0.0/24 dev eth0 proto dhcp scope link src 192.168.0.10 metric 202 192.168.10.0/24 dev wlan0 proto dhcp scope link src 192.168.10.1 metric 
Configured UFW firewall editing before.rules file as follows.
# START OPENVPN RULES *nat :POSTROUTING ACCEPT [0:0] -A POSTROUTING -o tun0 -j MASQUERADE -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE -A POSTROUTING -o wlan0 -j MASQUERADE COMMIT *filter :FORWARD DROP [0:0] -A FORWARD -i tun0 -o wlan0 -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT -A FORWARD -i wlan0 -o tun0 -j ACCEPT -A FORWARD -i wlan0 -o eth0 -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o wlan0 -j ACCEPT COMMIT # END OPENVPN RULES 
I have also setup a static route in my internet router to use the Raspberry Pi IP address as default gateway for packets with 192.168.10.x subnet as destination.
I have enabled avahi-daemon to get devices discovery work across the eth0 and wlan0 interfaces, and it works. I can find the Chromecast and the Samsung Tizen TV from the YouTube app on the smartphone.
[server] use-ipv4=yes use-ipv6=no check-response-ttl=no use-iff-running=no allow-interfaces=eth0,wlan0 [publish] publish-addresses=yes publish-hinfo=yes publish-workstation=no publish-domain=yes [reflector] enable-reflector=yes reflect-ipv=no 
Trying to broadcast from a device connected to the "main" internet router (any device in the 192.168.0.x subnet) to the Chromecast works perfect while Airplay is failing to connect. I checked the MacOS system logs and it seems like it starts the connection (I'm copying some relevant parts of the logs below)
APTransportConnectionHTTP 0xDD61 with name Samsung 7 Series-evnt created. Connection QoS: 0 AirPlayXPCHelper [0xDD61] httpconnection_asyncConnectionProgressed: Connected to address: 192.168.10.119:60503 AirPlayUIAgent Prompt complete[0xB4D5] { "finishedWithPromptInfo" : { "ATVName" : "Samsung 7 Series", "savePassword" : false, "uniqueID" : "D0:D0:03:34:9A:86", "MACAddress" : d0d00334 9a86 |^^^4^^ | (6 bytes), }, } 
But then some errors start:
### XPC service 'com.apple.AirPlayXPCHelper' error:  { count = 1, transaction: 0, voucher = 0x0, contents = "XPCErrorDescription" =>  { length = 18, contents = "Connection invalid" } } _XPCHelperCopyAirPlayPref:427: got error -6753/0xFFFFE59F kConnectionErr AirPlayXPCHelper ### [0x4364] Keep-alive taking too long to send (56.530 seconds, 28 total) APTransportConnectionHTTP ### [0x1E91] httpconnection_httpClientInvalidated: invalidate with reason -6722/0xFFFFE5BE kTimeoutErr.

I thought it could be a firewall issue but even after disabling UFW with sudo ufw disable nothing changes.
Any ideas?

2021.12.06 12:06 Miggu-Man The issue of DLC in competitive multiplayer games

I have a certain opinion on DLC in multiplayer games. I'm sharing this because, i want to know if there are others who think the same way as i do.
To make it clear i like DLC in video games, especially if they have a fair pricing in relation to their content. Multiplayer games especially benefit from DLC, because it helps to keep them relevant for longer. There is just one problem with that. There is the possibility that the DLC makes it harder, for new players to get into the game. Same goes for returning players who haven't purchased the DLC.
For example i always wanted to get into Dragonball FighterZ. I never did though because of the large amount of DLC the game has. For people who played it since the game launched that's not really an issue, because they just had to pay 25$, every six months or so for some new content. The game has 3 season passes and for new players, that can be a bit overwhelming to pay so much at once, just to get all the content the game as offer. Recently i also wanted to get back into Smash Ultimate and I'm still hesitating to do so, because i know that I'll be missing out a lot, if I'm not buying the 2nd season pass.
Single player games don't really have that issue. In these games is DLC mostly additional post game content, if you want to purchase the DLC is up to you. You can either drop the game, or pay for more content if you liked it.
In multiplayer games is the DLC heavily tied to the general experience. You will be seeing other players use DLC content, while you're playing online and sometimes you can't play, certain modes or maps with your friends because you haven't purchased the DLC. You can of course just buy the game and decide later, if you want the DLC, but if i do it that way, i always feel like I'm being forced to purchase it, because my game just feels incomplete.
I'm not trying suggest that every game should get free updates. That is in some cases impossible, especially in fighting games where creating a new character, takes a lot of effort. I just wanted to share why i always have issues, getting into competitive multiplayer games, that have been around for a while.
