Amazon, Apple, Google And Facebook Report Groundbreaking Sales Despite Tech Backlash

Amazon, Apple, Google And Facebook Report Groundbreaking Sales Despite Tech Backlash

The corona pandemic has made it tough for companies to survive and tech giants such as Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook hold no exception. There is a lot going on, on many fronts and most of it is not pretty. High competition and fierce demand and supply constraints have already made it hard for companies to survive. However, despite big tech backlash, tech giants such as Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook have reported groundbreaking sales.

Some of the most commonly reported issues that Facebook, Google, Apple and Amazon have been dealing with are anti trust issues, tongue lashing and fierce competition, amongst the corona pandemic already. However, these four companies that make up a large portion of the tech world have still performed really well. This is something worthy of appraise and acknowledgement.

While Alphabet Inc. Google dealt with anti-trust charges, users boycotted Facebook and increased probe of Apple Inc. On the other hand, Amazon dealt with government regulators and news media, on the whole, really challenged all four of these companies. Other problems include regulatory scrutiny and congressional tongue lashing.

All of this proved to be secondary though when Big Tech giants reported ground breaking sales. On the stock exchange, Apple (AAPL) was 3.70% higher, Amazon (AMZN) was 1.52% higher, Facebook (FB) was +4.91 higher and Alphabet GOOGL was 3.05% higher and GOOG was 3.33% higher. Moreover, their reported record quarterly revenue was also higher.

Profit And Revenue

The total revenue for these four giants was $5.3 trillion. It valued at $220.28 billion last quarter. Furthermore, Amazon, Google and Facebook, all three reported double digit revenue growth except for Apple, which only produced best September quarter sales in its history, whereas all three had best quarterly total revenues.

The performance of all these four giants is better than the last quarter, when they reported a total revenue of $200 billion and profit of $29 billion.

All four companies performed well. However, the only problem was a jitteriness in few areas which led to a slide recline in revenue. Otherwise, revenues would’ve been higher. Some of these problems included a jittery outlook for Facebook, lack of forecast at Apple, Google shares declining during late trading and finally, Apple’s projection of outsize spending on important Covid-19 issues.

What’s Ahead

Things will be meek and bleak in the time to come. Costs will be higher in the holiday season. Amazon believes it will see a hike in productivity with added safety features for its employees, longer breaks for them and revised social distancing practices.

Facebook, on the other hand, will be under jeopardy, for times ahead will be tricky. Their CEO is already talking about fears of a social unrest after the U.S election. Facebook shares may rise but due to privacy concerns and tough times ahead, Facebook will have to be very cautious about its spending so it can gain back from revenues.

Moreover, Apple, which saw a 28.8% decline in revenue in China, didn’t have it easy but still performed in the corona pandemic. There is a lot coming up for Apple ahead and its new iPhones may add to its glory. The new phones are different in many/most capacities and their CEO is optimistic about a positive future ahead. He added that he is bullish on this cycle but hopes for a better run in the next.

Finally, for Alphabet’s Google, their search business returned to strength in its online ads and YouTube. Most people connected through social media during the pandemic and therefore, companies such as Google benefited. There are tough times ahead but all four companies are hopeful.

Macron And Trump Play Battle Of Taxes

By on July 12, 2019

Macron And Trump Play Battle Of Taxes

It seems like a battle of taxes between Europe and US this time. It was revealed that Macron has put 3% digital tax on big tech companies such as Google, Amazon and Facebook.

The essential problem is that United States has levied a big bomb on France and France has reacted right away.

Reports reveal that France is content with the digital side of the economy, and that makes up a good size of the total world economy.

The new tax bomb on Trump on France (See: Macron), on Thursday, was a huge surprise for the man in question. In reaction to this, Bruno Le Maire sent a clear message to Trump, saying that they have to react to about 3% of their revenue.

France is making its over very decisions.

Similarly, France’s finance minister revealed that they decide their very own tax rules. However, on a similar hand, UK released its own draft proposal for increasing digital services tax by 2%.

If we put things straight, we can surely say that Europe is flying over towards Japan and Japan is at a standstill at the moment, for China to cover up the loss from the United States of America. Other than that, Brexit seems relatively and slightly low but current moves and status show that things are haywire.

Mayhem Or Chaos?

France has chosen to go for a uni lateral approach. They think that the digital tax will back fire. The cause, they say, will effect consumers and smaller businesses. However, the truth is that these mini sharks are playing with the biggest shark.

France has no other option to put taxes on its economy for the companies established there, whereas Apple has no other choice to break free from this momentum and choose to slip ahead.

Lastly, the laughing stock is the United States of America, because in satire, you idiot, trade is two way; if you are making economies suffer if you are stopping their food, comedy, fun, happiness, and tears, it sure as hell seems that  America’s days are over.

However, the end result is that because of one party, there is so much cohesive and collective damage that everybody goes in a state of a loss.

Every cycle of give and take changes and then ultimately, the consumer suffers, for an increase in price will cause a decrease in demand. And even if some demand of it is fulfilled, there will be greater losses because the taxes will already be there.

Conclusion?

It is a never ending chain, it seems, but only for the ones who are playing it. Ideally, leave the gains, leave it for collective goods and let people talk and come to you. That is a fair trade and an agreement.

Essentially, this is Trump at work and his hope is that everything is there and he has time to choose and decide. But no and though because if you are starting fire, you have to ignite it otherwise it will come to you and nobody will be able to hide it.

Amazon and Spotify: Tech Unveiled

If You Are Being Sued By Spotify and Amazon You Are Wrong

By on March 9, 2019

According to recent reports, song writers have been worried that Spotify and Amazon are going to sue them.

However, Musicians, producers and song writers are rallying against this tech giant and that isn’t the truth.

Apparently, Spotify and Amazon were saying that producers are rallying against these giants for they are going to sue them. However, it has been confirmed that the news is wrong and there is no suing them.

The truth behind this is that Spotify and Amazon are trying to appeal to the US Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) decision last year in order to increase the payout rates to song writers by 44% in the next 5 years.

Last year, in January, CRB ruling revealed that the National Music Publishers Association (NMPA) and the Nashville Songwriters Association International was published in February. It has now opened to an opportunity for companies to appeal to the decision for a 30 day window.

Now, it has been revealed that Spotify, Pandora, Google and Amazon have all filed to an appeal.

The four tech giants are filing their ruling – they are planning to fight the ruling. However, Apple Music is the only one who will not file an appeal.

While they say that the news might be upsetting, musicians and song writers should not be too worried about their outcome.

According to Jeff Becker of Swanson, Martin & Bell, entertainment lawyers are telling The Verge that it was anticipated for some time that these platforms will be taking the opportunity to preserve them via an appeal. Moreover, it is also being said that the court will likely side with the higher and increased royalty rate.

Presdident David Israelite, (NMPA) praised Apple Music for continuing to be friends with song writers. However, they blasted both Spotify and Amazon for their decision to sue the song writers in a shameful attempt to cut their payments by about a 1/3rd.

Essentially, Variety claims that musicians, producers and song writers are trying to rally against Spotify and Amazon to sue the song writers. Essentially, they are trying to increase the streaming royalties. However, the outrage stems from some kind of mis information.

Ideally, Spotify and Amazon are not trying to technically sue the song writers. In fact, they are trying to appeal to the CRB (the decision they made last year) to increase the payout rates to about 44% in the next five years.
