Tesla Daily: Tesla News & Analysis
Heres Why Tesla Is so Important
"Everybody raum our here and today we're gonna be talking about a couple of really important reports. First tesla's most recent impact report which has a ton of fascinating details and it won't go through the highlights. There that release also coincided with a huge new report on climate change by the will spend some time on that as well and then we've got a few other quick hits of news which will run through at the beginning. Quick look at tesla stock another relatively low volume day to day to start the week off just under fifteen million shares traded but tussles up two point one percent on the day to seven hundred and thirteen dollars. Seventy six cents that compared to the nasdaq up about two tenths of a percent. Cosstalk did see an upgrade today from jeffries and almost philippa who schwa- upgrading from neutral to buy which as we've talked about upgrades like that where they're actually rewriting. The stock those are more significant to analysts than press targeted adjustments. But that being said he did increase his price. Target from seven hundred dollars per share up to eight hundred fifty. From the note quote valuing tesla is as challenging as ever we raise our discounted cash flow base price target from seven hundred dollars to eight hundred fifty dollars on higher profitability and accelerated growth. While at thirty five percent five year compound annual growth rate. we remain below tessa. Guidance of fifty percent as trend growth desa currently trades on nine times revenue and sixty two times earnings before interest and tax a level disconnected with auto multiples but in our view more consistent with net growth lack of legacy issues and wider addressable markets including energy generation and storage and one. Quick little note here. Just because i do see these inflated allot tesla has guided for greater than fifty percent growth compounded annually for vehicle deliveries. That doesn't necessarily mean revenue would grow at fifty percent. Plus obviously it very well could but that's not what tesla has specified so to me. It's not super clear but it does look like in this case. Jefferies is comparing their revenue forecasts tesla's vehicle delivery guidance and tennessee that a lot so just wanted to point that out next year. We've got an update on giga texas. From joe tag mayer. He does drawn flyovers there and remember last week. We had talked about him here. He that tussle was going to be doing a test. Production run for the mentawai next week. Which would not be this week
Slate's If Then
I Bought It. Why Can't I Fix It?
"Several years ago journalists and kepler was on his very first work trip. He was an intern. Us news and world report. At the time he was excited. We did carry okay the first day and i got a little bit drunk. Nothing crazy but i fell asleep with my laptop in my bed watching comedy or something like on netflix. When jason woke up the laptop had moved down to the end of the bed without him realizing it and what happened next. Has that painful almost slow motion quality that anyone who is broken anything expensive knows all too well kicked it off the edge of the bed and the lcd broke on on me laptops. So the screen wasn't broken but if you opened it was just us all kinds of crazy colors and tickets be apple store and they wanted seven hundred dollars exit money that jason. An intern did not have so. We figured why not try to fix this thing myself he went on ebay and found a replacement. Lcd screen for fifty bucks. A fraction of the price that apple had quoted him and then he found some instructions online. It actually took me like ten hours to do like couldn't get the screen off. And i remember at one point. It was like four in the morning. And i grabbed in exacto knife which is not something you want to take the wires but i was just so frustrated and i just couldn't get the screen off to put the new one end eventually jason fixed screen and he used that computer for six years but the experience opened his eyes to a really important story in the tech world. One that he's been covering ever since it made me think like. Why does it cost so much to do this. It costs so much to get a device repaired by the manufacturer. And it's so hard to do it yourself because manufacturers from apple to samsung to microsoft. John deere make it that way.

How Much Does a Wedding Actually Cost?
"Experts project that twenty twenty one wedding costs will rebound what they were in two thousand nineteen if not higher so let's take a look at the twenty nineteen numbers. According to wedding wire the average cost of a wedding reception per couple was around. Twenty eight thousand dollars. Although i'd venture to say it was probably a little higher. Because according to the not here are the average costs involved with a wedding reception. Buckle up because it's a long one ten thousand five hundred dollars for a reception. Venue two thousand four hundred dollars for a photographer. Eighteen hundred dollars for a video for two thousand dollars for florist sixteen hundred dollars for a wedding dress. Three thousand seven hundred dollars for a wedding band twelve hundred dollars for a reception. Dj seventy dollars per person for catering and the average wedding in two thousand nineteen had one hundred and thirty one guests. I guess it's an odd number because of all the singles who want to go home or at least go to bed with a new plus one and that brings the total cost of food to nine thousand one hundred and seventy dollars. The rehearsal dinner costs on average eighteen. Hundred dollars five hundred ninety dollars for the invitations. One hundred dollars for the hairstylist hundred bucks for the makeup artist. Four hundred bucks for the party favors and last but certainly not least five hundred dollars for the cake that is a total of thirty five thousand nine hundred and seventy dollars to put that into perspective that the lot more than the down payment on one hundred and seventy five thousand dollar house or tuition for a year and a half at florida state university. It's a huge chunk of change. And again i would still argue that. Those estimates are probably low. I mean shout out to the bride. Who's spending one hundred ten bucks on a hairstylist. But if you're living in la you're probably spending five times that amount which brings me to an important point of course. These averages vary widely depending on factors like location. What time of year and even what day of the week it is. You're tying the
Chasing Poker Greatness
Playing Combo Draws
"We're going to cover some hands today. Where multi way pots we check raised and they kind of a weird card on the turn both played at one k l. on ignition john. Do you want to lead us into the first hand. So this is a hand. That brad played starts with a middle position. Open a cutoff. Lattes and brad is the big wind with queen ten of spades he decides to flat. I guess we could just start here and talk about whether you three about this. Hand that all our these types of hands multi way. I think it's reasonable to three bad. I'm not opposed to it. I liked the cutoff calling is pretty indicative. That like you're not supposed to have a calling range. There so villain is most likely fish. The original prefab opener. I believe i had tagged fish. This hand went down during a poker coaching. Explain livestream so one thing about the livestreams that you know are the drawbacks for me. Specifically is that attention gets divided. You're trying to describe things trying to figure out where all the buttons are so you can miss some stuff that you otherwise would not have missed. So i'm just gonna pull out all the excuses before we jump into this hand and say like well okay clayton and just like sort of call a call pre instead of squeezing on reflex okay. I'll our come to your defense a little bit. I think just looking at those. Just looking at this without any hud stats. I agree the cutoff. Looks like a fish once he flats the mp open. I can't tell much about the given that he has like a seven hundred dollar stack and open to a reasonable size. I'll just look at this and say like it's sort of a disaster if we three about this hand. Mp calls a fish folds which i think is going to happen quite frequently and we we isolate ourselves versus a reasonably strong empty range and we lose like the person in the hand. That's most likely to donate their stack in some way so that one of the reasons that i might decide to call slightly more often than three about with a fish flooding. Yeah that's fair little backstory. So m p m p is either a week rag or a fish because they called a cold four bet with queen jack suited in a spot. Where i know. You're not supposed to call queen jack suited so anyway That was happening a little earlier on so that was the rationale even other stats like okay. That hand specifically was like. I don't think that's supposed to be a thing so anyway. With that said we go to flop at quainton spades. There's eighty dollars in the pot. The flop is jack of spades eight of hearts for of spades. I start out by checking. And i think that i should not have checked this. This is where the hand kind of got away for me from the jump. I like leading here especially against when. I'm battling against multiple fish with a hand like this because you know some bad things can happen when we check raise or combo draws here just well. The thing that the thing that is going to happen what happens right you check raise a komo draw and then you turn a pair in a pot with an sp are of like two and then you get kind of frozen right where it's hard to construct an ice checking rage. Nice betting rage. You don't necessarily want to bet with your pear. Your combo draw now because you're beating villains worse flush draws so like yeah it's you're being bills whereas flush draws in the hands at villain has that are beating you just jam and kind of make your life miserable so anyway. That's a bad thing that can

"They're just excited to get that check. Yes they were very excited to get that first. Twelve hundred dollar stimulus check. And i remember advising people not advising but you know going the idea out there that may be a good idea to use that money to buy bitcoin and bitcoin. At the time of course was worth about seven thousand seven hundred dollars. Now it's worth something like it was yesterday. It was thirty two thousand more than four times what it was worth when they bought it so. If anyone had done that. And so that bitcoin yesterday they would have profited about four thousand dollars ish or they would have turned that twelve hundred dollars into forty eight hundred dollars. I suppose is a better way of putting and which buys a whole lot more. Get some groceries. Yeah you can actually get instead of buying that stupid television that you don't need or want or that you don't need why not invest in something that is only going to become more valuable relative to the us as the usda steadily becomes less valuable because the government just creates more and more of it every single day and then.

"You don't need a house and would be renting it out which is great but if you it's it's not cash flowing like if you're making seven hundred dollars a month on this property i would be having different advice. But you're not. You're not making very much of anything. It's ten years old the ten year mark little start to break and then bigger things start to break and then all of a sudden it's a big pile of deferred maintenance and nobody wants to buy it from you at any price. You said this is your third year renting it. Does that mean that you lived in it up until three years ago. Yes okay so we are hitting upon the section twenty one twenty-one timeline so you can sell it and hopefully you have been taking depreciation as a rental at so because when you sell it. You are the government's going to assume you did and will make you pay depreciation recapture when you sell it but you lived in it for two of the last five years which means that it was your primary residence. You can sell it and pay no capital gains taxes though. This is something that you're gonna wanna talk to an agent about the see if you can list it. When does your current lease end. The summer of this year. The place i'm renting now or the tenant's lease the tendencies december of this year. Okay so you can sell an occupied property if you have like history documentation for when they rented they're a great tenant and here's all the things that here's there at least and blah blah blah. It's a lot easier to sell a tentative property with a good tenant as opposed to somebody who isn't paying rent and causing a lot of headaches and you're like i just wanna get out of here. Don't want to deal with this anymore. So i would start the documentation process of how great of a you have. If you have a great tenant i would talk to a real estate agent. About what is it worth. How long do they think it will take to sell et cetera. And i would talk to your tax preparer or a cpa and ask them about the depreciation recapture can double check. That you've been doing all the things properly so that you can make the most amount of money and Take the most advantage of the section one twenty-one exclusion for primary residence capital gains taxes. I just want to chime in and say. I absolutely agree with everything he said. I think that's brilliant to think through that whole thing mindy. 'bout hey there's you've lived there for two of the past the difference between what she's saying if it's a rental property and yourself to twenty. You're probably going to pay taxes on.

It took me half an hour to confirm what i already knew so anyway but it is the gold standard. Is it not. It's the gold standard. Yes it is. It is the gold standard. I found that out recently. Because i may be jinxed it when i said at the other day about georgia tech georgia tech's best player in basketball. He won acc player of the year. He's been ruled out of their. I double a. tournament game because of covid complications. They don't even say that he tests positive. It's still unclear. Maybe it was across the street from somebody that may be tested positive. But what happened is tech was following all the protocols and then after they won the acc tournament they were going to indianapolis one player traveled separately with another group of people to indianapolis. That's the one guy who ended up testing positive and therefore is ruled out. I tried to go to the ncwa rules to see with the protocols. Were and i found that they have been changing the protocols to meet certain teams demands to allow them to play. And it's kind of vegas and fluid the way that they are applying the rules and making them up. He's a symptomatic. This player is so that speaks to what you're saying there and there is a lot of confusion about if they win the first game. Could you play the next. There's nobody really knows what's going on. And there's another player another best players out. We're going to continue to see this. And one thing that is affecting a lot is the betting markets which i find this interesting there was guy who like seven hundred dollars. The tech would win the acc tournament. They did he wants seventeen thousand dollars off of that tech got to the championship because the number one seed had to forfeit in the semifinals so a forfeit aided this guy winning seventeen thousand dollars. We're going to see probably similar things going with players having to sit out during this tournament because of cova that uses a pcr tests which they call when in cwa the gold standard for detecting the virus. Which we know is not true. I guess they're gonna have to weigh in on their expectation of a scratch when they place their bets because unlike in a horse race where you just place your bet. This has a cascade effect to later games in your bracket absolutely it completely transforms it..

A Quick Guide to Multipliers
"If you play one hundred dollars through a slot and there's a seven times multiplier going on that day. It's as if you played seven hundred dollars through the slot as far as your comps goes. That doesn't mean getting seven dollars worth of let. Let's take an example. Let's say that. Normally if you play one hundred dollars to a slot machine you would get ten cents in comps that you could spend. Somehow if there's a seven times multiplier going on you'll get seventy cents for that hundred dollars that you played through. So that's basically what it is right. They multiply your reward points right now. They're different kinds of multipliers. Sometimes they're multipliers on your tier points. You know as far as your tier status goes other times. The multiplier is on wealth for caesar's anyway they're called reward credits the credits that you can actually spend like cash and julio actually followed up with an email to he was wondering in this case it sounded like it was only slots and he wondered if it ever happens with table games. Yes definitely in fact. I'd say most of the time when multipliers are offered it applies to any game that you're playing in the casino that's the way it is at harris southern california right now there may be some little rules here and there for example at harris southern california. If there's a ten times multiplier day on reward credits that will apply to every game except if you look at the small print except video poker. It's usually half and it only be five times. 'cause they figure well there's not as high a house edge on video poker is there are onslaught so sometimes you know depend on the game that you're playing but yeah you always watch out for these promotions because sometimes it can really pay off. I think right now. Sunday's are the multiplier every week at harrah's and it's hard for me to get out there. Mike on sundays on days when we've gone from multipliers. Oh my gosh we have gotten so many reward credits that we can use to spend

I write about this during the war of art when i finally did finish. I've tight. Those words the end. I felt like my dna changed. You know and i will say that as an encouragement to anybody listening that struggling with a shame stuff once. I was able to finish that thing that novel. I've never had any trouble finishing anything ever again. that's interesting. It was just sheer willpower driven on by shame. No i think shame is a great thing. But i think but i couldn't stand myself if i failed yet again. Charges had to keep going. Keep going keep going. It seems like it's possible. And i'm speculating here. But the when you finish that novel and you had the end right because confidence is just not something you can fake right in this respect. Your your your true self knows whether you've earned yards on earned when you type the end. The story of i always self sabotage now had counter example that that steam it was no longer. I never thought about it that way jim. But i think you're absolutely right yeah. Counterexample with the legend of bagger vance so finishing a novel is one thing getting a novel published is quite another endeavour in many respects to thirty year overnight. Success what happened. Did you end up like drawing straws and you have became the bridge partner of a book agent like what what actually happened that allowed this publication publishing your first book. Well like like. I said i wound up writing three novels that never got published right and when i finished the third one. That was sort of like another of all is lost moment. A suicide moment for me. Because i couldn't get any even my friends would read it and i knew that i just didn't have the wherewithal to do this again. You know to save up money to work for two years. I just didn't have the wherewithal. And so i decided to Or jerk came to me as a flash that i'm going to hollywood. Let me write a screenplay. Let me write may try hollywood by failed as a novelist.

Let me see if byline is still still on here up by light as well. Now we're on by light or here all right. That was just me dropped. I'm not everybody. I'm in the middle of a massive windstorm right here. The winds are howling if you cannot hear them anyway let me get going. The way started. Mike was hangman. And matt hardy. We're not just randomly at a bar. Okay matt hardy kept asking hangman to join him at every time hangman. Starting to get your rotated met with back-off math and says hey let's go get a drink later and hangman says well if you're paying all be there so we know that there are between the making the date and going out on a date. Okay that gives plenty of time for hangman's drop contract now. Some of you out there need to understand that your problem with the story line is that you're looking at. What's the word stereotypes. Okay let me tell you something about this. Old cameron rhymes right. His gimmick is that he's the carolina. Caveman my wrong. You're not wrong. You're the caveman. Caveman is pretty hairy caveman. Caveman technically is a sub human right. His gimmick is use. A carolina caveman. But don't fall for that. That guy really did invest in game. Stop 'em senior really did make a lot of money. You want to know why. Because he's actually brilliant so you can't believe that the hangman can be smart guy because he's a he's a texan or whatever where he's from north carolina. He's a he's saying man he he can't be smart. Whatever you can be smart. That's the least of my problems with his angle. He's a baby face and he's brilliant guy. Now oh my can. I continue here. We got stinging darby versus brian. Cage and ricky starks. We the young bucks vs jericho. Mtfg's our revolution pay per view matches march third. We got shacking jade versus cody and red velvet and drastic express. It'll be facing fdr and are you ready for this and totally blanchard. Oh my god yes. I don't know what was more this show either. I watched it. I don't know what it was more shocking. for me. Last night the announcement the tully blanchard will be in a match or sting taking a massive power from brian cage to let everybody know in case they had any question. Yeah i'll be good for at least one so we're we are. Everybody was wondering about what we see. Darby allin in staying in some sort of cinematic masterpiece. I don't know it looks like we're going to see him in the ring. Considering he took one big bump from one big large man last night for those of you that are concerned and asking why i'm shaking. I'm not shaking or in a windstorm and this entire house is shaking. Oh man you know. I found a great generational gap here on from of the twitch. Homeys behemoth bear here where he explains to us tabby heap with a bear behemoth pair. Who tagged us both to say what money matches and he says. Money matches is a term in the fighting game community. A one off match set in any head to head fighting game in which either both either or both players put forth a certain amount of money to be awarded in full to the winner. They've been doing that in wrestling. And other aspects of gambling and betting on fights for years winner-take-all. It's been a thing that's been. This is a this is a big money match. It's not just the purse for one match. This is the purse. This is everything they've made in the first quarter of and by the way. I think the reason they're doing that and it's interesting 'cause matt's old school so the theory is if i say mike has been doing a poor job and observer live therefore i am finding him a billion dollars. Well then you believe that. Okay if. I say that mike has done a poor job on the program. He's being fined three hundred and thirty five dollars. Then you're like oh it must be real. I would say three hundred and thirty five dollars. So you know matt's entire estate is on the line and hangman's i mean no one's going to buy that so you don't even say like a years worth of earnings you say well the first quarter of twenty twenty one. It's just like win. The segment was over matt. Hardy said thirty seven hundred dollars he goes. He goes I'll give you thirty seven hundred dollars to beat up hangman. I'd say well he didn't enough for a million dollars that's ridiculous. What thirty seven.

Party stuff always go exclusive within a couple of years. It's the it's on all consoles like the ubisoft or ea stuff that we don't go everywhere because ea wants to make as much money as they can. They're not gonna one console like the next game after reagan rock if it exists will definitely be a ps five only.

What Went Wrong With Cyberpunk 2077?
"Sarah twenty. Seventy seven was twenty. Twenty s hottest. Game in shaping up to be a good enough launch when reviews for the pc version began trickling out a few days before december. Twelve release date but once players got their hands on syrup. Twenty seventy seven especially the. Ps four and xbox one versions excitement turned into frustration as players encountered bugs glitches in more in a report from bloomberg's jason schreier developers. That city project red knew the game was not ready for launch in two thousand twenty according developer quote. They expected the game to you. Ready in twenty twenty. Two based on the progress team was making back in two thousand nineteen beyond just bugs and glitches. Sarah sarah overall performance in playability on consoles like the base. Ps four and xbox one reviled. I gave the concert versions of cyberpunk twenty seventy seven specifically a four in its review. One hurdle was that the developers tried to develop the engine and game simultaneously decision. One developer cyberpunk says was like quote trying to drive a train while the tracks are being laid in front of you at the same time. According to bloomberg. Sarah punk twenty-seven versions not the version have been hammered by players for for glitches and bugs. Some bugs which are game raking and ended up crashing the entire game or sometimes the system is being played on and we'll put a pause there because also acknowledge the pc version does have its fisher. Bugs also but the conservation is definitely have way more issues in the pc version back to the article developers seemingly pushed through challenges by believing they could overcome these obstacles themselves. Similar to the infamous. By where magic but sarah punk twenty seventy seven was developed through periods of intense crunch and a follow up to follow a tweet shire claims that despite promises from management that crunch would not be required. Some managers guilty employees into working more hours by saying other employees will work longer to pick up the slack. Salaries were also reportedly low with one junior programmer. Making around seven hundred dollars a month as for why early previews of cyberpunk twenty seventy seven demo to the public at events like e. three twenty nineteen look better than the final product. That's because the demo was entirely fake. According to the report neither code nor the gameplay was finalized when the demo was made in months spent working on a fake demo took away from developing the full game schrafft's report also references things like cultural challenges caused by language barriers There's this whole double dip release strategy that the studio wanted to go for where The game officers meant to come out in spring The reason why one reason why they wanted to come out. Spring was so that they could release on current. I guess now last gen consoles and then released again on next gen consoles and have that double dip having both those console versions out obviously game got delayed and so that didn't happen happen. The exact way they wanted to even though we still have next inversions coming scheduled later this year and then another thing that stri- report references and the fact that the game was announced in two thousand twelve but apparently full development didn't start until late two thousand sixteen. Tim where do you stand with all this. I mean look at this point. where do i stand with. Like one of the most complicated. Just like there's so many different facets that go into this right like at the end of the day. I stand against the project red and how this all went down like we. How many times do we need to say like this game should not have been released the way that it was just period outing times. Do we need to say that. Like crunch is bad and we need to fix all this stuff. All this is to me. Is we being now in. Twenty twenty one firmly in twenty twenty one developers. Publishers media outlets. Everybody they need to open their eyes to start paying a little bit more attention. Because if you make these mistakes constantly you do not change. You do not fix. Despite the countless flags that have went up for the last decade specifically the last couple of years. Jason is gonna get you. Jason tries to get in there and exposed the living. Fuck out of you and your the entire team and that it hits a point where there is no recovering from that. So it's like that fear alone should probably motivate you to make some changes on top of the you know human decency side of the whole thing right but this is inevitable. Of course shire was going to get in there and of course he was going to talk to people and of course that's going to crap narrative that is extremely not favorable to cd project red. For good reason. They made a lot of very very very poor choices. Yeah now reading this report like a lot of it is not surprising just given the context of how everything's gone down right like seeing the the game delayed multiple times like from this bring into september from september and november and then from november into december. I think that paints a clear picture of okay. Yeah like we know. This thing isn't ready yet but we think we can get there. Okay no like. It's not ready but we we think we can get there with the next delay and that combined with the idea of okay. Yeah no we want to release twice so that we can double dip on consoles And them having to delay into basically the next generation was still have the current gen versions only available. I think that speaks to the fact that they they understood that they weren't ready And it's very much seems like a shit or get off the pot situation for them. All right yeah. We got to put this thing because if we don't like we're not gonna make the money on it and we can't keep people waiting we'll this game everybody be ready. I feel like those questions get asked overall. This feels like a tale of a studio thinking that because they put out a successful project that means that they can't have a fail and that is very evident that specific quote from Jason's article where he talks about. How like people were challenging the timeframe of sarah pumpkin whether or not they could get on time and somebody basically answered back. We'll figure it out along the way because he made the winter three and that is not an acceptable answer right like that shouldn't be cause for complacency. Because you put out incredible project. Five years ago i forget if i mentioned this in the actual article but like there was also the reference of how quickly the team grew after the witcher. Three like basically. The team doubled in size between the wichita. Three and cd project red and they didn't necessarily account for that. And so when you have a team that grows like that. And you don't your your company culture and your pipelines and your processes don't grow alongside that to allow for that For for that ease of growth. Then yeah you're gonna have issues like you can't you can't you can't operate like a big company but also still behave like the small indie company in that. Seems like a lot of what they're what they're doing. Which is unfortunate. Because that's result in sarah twenty seventy seven. Yeah absolutely you know the. I think most shocking thing to come from this are the implications. That three was fake. Like that to be something that i struggled to fully believe or fully. Get behind this on so much. Believe as budgets. Get behind that statement. Because it's like all demos or fake demos to some extent. And i feel like that's this to me is a perfect example of when it rains it pours and it's like when you make dire mistakes you're going to get called out and then you get exposed for every single thing To levels that you wouldn't necessarily be criticized and everything else right you know But anyways like yeah the the each. I definitely want to know more about of him implying. It's fake or not. We do have more context on that. Because adam consider not consistent adam oh no it. Is adam barsky. Yeah from cd project. Red actually responded on twitter. Quote tweeted jason with a whole response. I'm gonna pull from adam. Bankers with adam. Bankers did a good write up on it. From aegean the response goes like this. Adebayo adebayo the steam ahead of cd project. Red has responded to a recent report regarding cyberpunk twenty seventy seven alleged fake three demo and development issues while it's hard for a trade show game demo not to be a test of vision or vertical slice two years before the game ships. But that doesn't mean it's fake but ask you wrote. Compare the demo with the game. Look at the at the other side. They're dum dum dum dum. I'm not sure how that's pronounced. But look at the dumdum seen or the car chase or the many other things with the people reading your article may not know is that games are not made in a linear fashion and start looking like the final product. Only a few months after launch or a few months before launched if you look at that demo now is different. Yes but that's what the work in progress watermark is for. Our final game looks implies way better than than what the demo ever was as for missing features that's part of the creation process features features. Come and go as we see if they worker not also car bush's exist in the final game almost verbatim to what we showed in the in the demo.

Because next week we'll be market full res tenth anniversary this show turns ten and the first two companies. We talked about on the first episode of this podcast. January fifth twenty. Eleven were general motors and facebook. Now in the case of gm they had just announced some really good sales numbers and we talked about whether that would translate into a good boost for the stock facebook was still a private company and the latest valuation put their market cap at fifty billion dollars and we talked about whether the social network was really worth fifty billion dollars and you hear from time to time. Well if you bought this stock at this point in time than today you'd have you know. And i i just thought well. What does someone actually did. What if someone listened to the first episode of market foolery took three thousand dollars and decided to split it. Three ways put one third into an and five hundred index fund. One third into general motors one third into facebook. How is that person doing after ten years now. Facebook was still private so they would have to wait another year and a half or the ip l. But you know in this scenario they just wait for that and on day one they say great. I'm in on facebook since january. Fifth twenty eleven here are the numbers s and p. five hundred up one hundred ninety two percent. That's good. that's real good. That is an above average decade. General motors less good. Gm up nine percent. I know of nine percent in ten years not gripped. Facebook goes public mid may of two thousand twelve and through today. The stock is up. Six hundred. Eighteen percent market crushing returns for facebook. So every ten years the market foolery day one portfolio. That started with three thousand dollars in cash is now worth more than eleven thousand dollars and i know. It is tempting to look at that portfolio in thick boy. If you just taken the money from general motors and put it into facebook. You'd be up so much more. That's not the point the point. Is this person this person who did this. Market full day one portfolio. They're doing great when it comes to investing. This is what winning looks like someone who doesn't invest in individual stocks like you and me someone who sits back and methodically puts money into an s. and p. five hundred index fund. Make no mistake. They're doing really well. Three thousand dollars in an index fund over the past decade. Now worth more than eight thousand seven hundred dollars. That's really good particularly when you think about all the sudden downturns the market has had over the past decade staying invested. No matter the environment takes discipline and i applaud that i celebrate that but three thousand dollars in an index fund over the past decade does not get you north of eleven thousand dollars today and yes i know that. Gm has not been the most inspiring business over the past decade. but it looked. at least. They're still here. Talked to any investor who owns shares of any of the many businesses that went bankrupt in the past ten years they will happily trade that stock for shares of general motors that end up in the plus column barely in the plus column. I know but they'll take those. Gm shares up nine percent along with the dividend payments. They will take that trade in a heartbeat. Facebook went public at thirty eight dollars. A share in may of two thousand twelve. That stock is now north of two hundred seventy dollars a share but remember was pretty rocky early on just a few months. After it went public. Facebook stock was below eighteen dollars. People bail people absolutely got in early. Saw the drop and bailed but those who held on. We're absolutely rewarded and again. I know no one actually did this. But i actually think it's a pretty good illustration of the approach. We talk about the motley fool on our podcasts and to a much greater degree in our services this is why we talk about allocation and mindset. This is why we talk about building to a portfolio of fifteen to twenty stocks with a long time horizon this market re day one portfolio is kind of a microcosm of what a market beating portfolio. Looks like you've got some laggards. You've got some companies that are keeping pace with the market and you've got some winners and a couple of those winners are up so much that they make your laggards irrelevant in the same way that facebook is up so much. It carries general motors over the finish line at the end of the decade to make this market beating portfolio. This is what winning looks like

"Months of inaction and facing record shattering covid nineteen cases and deaths in this country.

The covid relief checks were put back in the bill after a major push from the progressive wing of the democratic party. A new study reports.

Looking for a phone for the holidays? Here are your best bets
"You're looking for a smartphone for yourself or a loved one this holiday. The choices can get overwhelming. Fortunately we've got some answers. Roger chang and this is your daily charge with me phone expert than law created holiday gift guide funds. Welcome lynn hierachy. I'm happy to be here. So you've a rundown of the best smartphone options out there but before we get into specific suggestions. Any general advice on what we should think about when we're syrian new phone. Yeah every time you know before you buy. New phone is important to think about how you use your last phone. Did you play a lot of games and watch videos if so you probably want a phone with a big screen and a battery a big battery and or did you take a lot of photos and capture a lot of videos than you probably want something with a great camera so you really want to think about how you use your phone and make sure that the phone works for you and your needs instead of just getting the latest greatest. You don't wanna pay for features you don't need features that you may or may not need i talk about five g a lot on this show But senior the expert. I wanted to get your read on this law. Is it something you really need. When considering which funded by there is a premium for five devices. So is it really worth. It is rolling out in more areas throughout this year. But i know like some carriers. I believe t mobile. They offer five g coverage under its unlimited plan anyway. So it's understandable if you're eyeing a five g device and that's your next phone in that situation but i'm not a hundred percent convinced a five g iphone is something you absolutely need this year especially when so many people are working from home anyway and especially if you don't have good five three coverage in your area so you should definitely check that before you make a decision and you know coverage maps from carriers. They don't really tell the whole story so you you wanna make sure you do a lot of research and phones. Five g. phones are getting cheaper and cheaper. So i may hold out just a bit longer gutted. It feels like the most part people are committed to the platforms. They've chosen if you're an iphone user. You're likely buying a new iphone. Twelve financial user. You have more choices. But a- likely to stick with another android phone other instances where you would consider switching. Generally that is true It people do tend to kind of stick with the same ecosystems. But i think it's easier to switch platforms easier more now than now more than ever especially compared to years past I think about some certain situations that would motivate motivate someone switch and i think peripheral accessories are especially good reason of the airpods pro. They do work with android phones to an extent but their functionality and their features work so much better with an iphone and you basically kind of even iphone to use an apple watch for its to its full potential so i could see android user. Who is really attracted to those accessories switch for that. I think for an iphone to android people do want the customization. I know iowa's fourteen gives you more and options but it just doesn't compare to what you can play around with on an android phone. It's a lot more fun if you have the time for it. So let's get into it. Let's talk about specific phones. What are some of your top picks for this holiday season again. It really depends on who you are and what your needs are but for an iphone. I do like the iphone mini because of its size. I have small hands. So it's very attracted to me and like the iphone se because it's a because of its low price and for android phones. The galaxy s twenty f e is really affordable. Pick for the galaxy line. And i liked the oneplus eight because it's premium but it's competitively priced so let's dig into some of those phones the the galaxy s twenty f e which. I know we made fun of alive for the name. Initially fan edition actually ended up being pretty decent About what you get with it and why you know. That's that's a pretty decent deal. Among other phones out there. Well one is that it has five g and it has a great performance. And the although you know. The camera isn't as good as the s. twenty. Ultra the note. Twenty ultra It's a good price. I think it starts about seven hundred dollars and it's so much cheaper than some of the premium galaxy phones out there so it's something if you want that galaxy samsung the samsung galaxy experience. But you don't want to spend way too much. I think that is a good alternative. Also you can look into samsung's galaxy a series lineup phones. Like the eighth fifty one i think is one of the more recent ones those also kind of offer that that software experience a galaxy experience without a premium of a high price so beyond some of these head like his. You know you talked about samsung. Which is a well-known Are there any other handsome. Makers that are a bit more under the radar that offer phones. Maybe deserve a second. Look yeah. I don't. I don't have any official releases or deals specifically that i can say i always think. Motorola is such a great company for mid range affordable phones and throughout the holiday season. There moto phones do get a discounted and there are some carrier promotions to it. I would say keep an eye on those things especially if you don't want to spend a thousand dollars on a phone if you're looking for something it starts like two hundred dollars. An up. motorola makes a really solid aggressively priced phones. That if you don't really need all the premium features so if you just kind of use your phone to make calls the moti. Seven power is a good mid range phone with a big battery so you don't have to charge it and that would be a great pick for someone who's a little bit more straightforward with their needs at. Don't need a lot or grammy. It's black friday today. So i'm sure there are plenty of deals to go around beyond the motorola brand new. You mentioned one plus and that's another company. That is a little bit under the radar. It's not a household name tug a little bit about that in some of the options there. Yeah we're plus is definitely. They started out as an android enthusiasts brand. They've branched out in there a little bit more popular. Now you're right. They're not as popular will known as google and samsung. Their current flagship line is the eight. It's oneplus eight pro. Act it's a lot of phones year. They released like four And so that's kind of their higher end line. They just released their oneplus. Nord en ten. Five g That will be available in north america at a later date and that has five g And it's about. I think it's going to be about four hundred dollars. Give or take so that is something that you know. They've consistently released premium phones with great hardware at affordable pricing used to be more affordable from years past. Not so much anymore but it still. You know hundreds of dollars cheaper than samsung galaxy funds beyond one plus and samsung another company that surprisingly flies under the radar is google right. It's it's a big name company but the pixel phones. Have not exactly been blockbuster devices. I believe one of the pixel phone is on your list. You talk about which phone that google makes people should be looking at. Yeah so. I think you're talking about pick so four eight five g. I've consistently recommended that phone since its release i like it. Because it is more affordable than the five the pixel five which is its main flagship. But you get a lot of the same features it still has. It has the same camera as a five. So it has great. Low like Low light photos and it has a soffer support from google. And it's also has five g which is what differentiates it from the pig soul for a that was Also released so that would be all the pixel phones that were released this year. I do like the four eighty five g the most just because it's cheaper than the five but has many of the same features so most of those flagship phones we're talking about the pixel five twelve. They're they're eight hundred dollars closer to one thousand dollars. If you're looking to spend that much like you. Does anyone actually need to spend a thousand dollars on a new phone. I mean you can definitely spend that much if you want you know phones. That cost that much are usually faster. They have longer less batteries and have great cameras. But i feel like this year compared to last compared to yours past. We've seen so many great phones that are priced below thousand dollars. You could find something great for four hundred dollars to six hundred dollars. I do think. Fund companies were reactive to the spending behavior of twenty twenty and how people for being a little bit more cost conscious and they and they Reacted to that. With a appropriately priced phones. That have been way more aggressive but still have premium teachers. And what if you're shopping for kids or parents amid this may be the same line of conversation. But you know for for folks who don't necessarily need all those layers in bells and whistles of. Are there any other phones that you suggest for them. That may be even a step down from some of the ones you talked about earlier definitely as it again. A motorola makes a lot of inexpensive phone so i would look towards their e line of funds the moto e six i believe is you know starts at one hundred dollars and that's something that you can get unlocked By the way if you are giving phone as a gift. I do recommend buying an unlocked. Phone it's probably the quickest and easiest way to go about it since you just have to swap existing some card and you're ready to go so that would kind of with that line of phones. The moti line would definitely be something. I would look out for this. Holiday season is a phone. Even a gift anymore is that is that too personal of a device for you to go out and actually get for someone. I sure why not. I totally don't disagree with receiving a phone as a gift. I think it's perfectly as long as you go about it the right way. Make sure that's what they're it matches the needs that they want and And you look very closely at all the fine print in terms of carrier contracts and stuff like that. I think it would be a great gift.

Review of Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G
"There are plenty of android phones, and of course, the IPHONE to consider at three hundred and forty nine dollars. The Regular Pixel for a is easy to recommend at four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars the pixel for five G.. A bit more comparison shopping as with all pixels, the five Jeez strengths are hard to put on a SPEC sheet. It's more unassuming than other android phones, but it's software is more elegant and easier to use, and of course, the camera is almost surely better than the direct competition it will turn heads but the pixel for five G. won't let you down either and quote. But. What about that Pixel five over at and Gadget Cris Velasco says, android eleven is clean and clever on the pixel five. The five has long battery life, but the Pixel lineups cameras overall have stagnated. So lacking that key leadership differentiator rival phones can now offer better value quote. It's the best smallish android phone I've used in a long time with plenty of charming software features and a smattering of high niceties. If this were any other year, I'd probably be recommending. It more strongly, but it's not. So I can't to be clear if clean clever software with term support is the first thing you value most in a smartphone the pixel five is probably the best you can get. But consider this you could get a galaxy S. twenty F e Five G. With a more flexible camera system better performance a bigger more beautiful screen and expandable storage for seven hundred dollars seven fifty if you want one that plays Nice with 'em and. Wave Five G. Networks, and while it software won't be for everyone, the seven hundred and fifty dollars, plus at is another option in the same price range and packs a faster chipset more ram and storage and super fast charging, and it's camera while slightly behind the Pixel five in image quality is a lot closer than Google would probably care to admit I. Know I'm sort of comparing apples to oranges here. So how about this the pixel for a five G. Which? Uses the same chipset as the five pecks. The same cameras has a bigger screen that's still really easy to handle all for between five hundred and six hundred dollars. If you can live without water or dust resistance and you don't care about wireless charging, you're probably better off with one of these. Instead none of this is to say I don't like the Pixel five or that it's a bad phone I'm just not convinced. It's the best deal right now and quote.
