Which stock investment will be smarter to own in 2023, assuming a recession is about to hit? This is an interesting question with no clear-cut answer. A pick between the two largest companies in America, both Big Tech leaders, riding the simple demographics of technology innovation and widespread adoption. You have the tech gadget giant in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) matched against the software and computer network infrastructure leader of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). They represent the oldest brothers of the family driving the Internet/online revolution at its core.

In this article, I will review past recession performance starting with the original Tech Bust of 2000, and take a peek at current chart trading action. Plus, a look at basic fundamental operating results and changes over the last five years highlights just how closely related the two have become.

I have Hold ratings on both names right now. Waiting for lower prices to buy new shares is my current suggestion. Nevertheless, selling either, especially if you have substantial taxable gains, may not be the wisest long-term decision.

Recession History

In general, Apple has performed somewhat better than Microsoft for investment returns during 2022's Tech 2.0 Bust. It beat the software king during the sharp, but temporary, 2020 pandemic dump. Despite wild price swings, it also survived the 2007-09 Great Recession best. These periods include steadily rising iPhone sales and acceptance by consumers, which have driven superb growth, no matter the economic backdrop. Warren Buffett has called the iPhone one of the stickiest products for consumer demand and pricing ever invented. However, when we look back at the 2000-03 Dotcom Bust period, when Apple was almost exclusively a personal computer seller, Microsoft was able to materially outperform.

Below, I review total returns over each recession span, while comparing the two companies to overall market performance in the large-cap technology peer Invesco NASDAQ 100 ETF (QQQ), mega-cap SDPR Dow Industrial ETF (DIA), and a variety of small companies in the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM).

Current Technical Story

The good news is both Apple and Microsoft have been the top performers in the Big Tech area of Wall Street over the last 12 months. The mega-cap highflyers have almost uniformly crashed and burned during the major Federal Reserve tightening cycle to combat inflation that is racing to a 40-year record increase. Below is a chart of the largest 10 U.S. companies by publicly-traded market capitalization. Also notice, diversified, cash-heavy, and defensive conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) has been the only gainer, with America's biggest bank, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) losing moderately for investors during the rough 2022 bear selloff.

In essence, Apple and Microsoft have been "the" defensive picks to own in Big Tech, witnessing no serious downturn in operations during 2022, with minor growth still expected by analysts next year. Below are 18-month charts of daily price and volume changes, alongside some of my favorite momentum indicators.

The bullish news is that trends in the Accumulation/Distribution Line and Negative Volume Index have remained healthy and strong. In combination, they indicate that plenty of buying interest exists each day, even on slower volume and less newsworthy sessions. Plus, relative price strength for Apple/Microsoft vs. peers and the S&P 500 Index (SP500) generally is a powerful positive development, by itself.

The bearish news is On Balance Volume has suffered, as large sell orders by institutions and insiders have overwhelmed small retail buys. Stock quotes have been falling along with the carnage in Big Tech and rise in interest rates. Honestly, it's been hard for every large company to fight the market decline as the economy gets close to recession (measured by real GDP stagnation during the first three quarters of 2022 and the rapid inversion of the Treasury yield curve in October-November). Both stocks are trading well under their respective 200-day moving averages, with downtrends looking incomplete from my 36 years of trading experience.

Fundamentals = Only Slight Differences

What's fascinating to me is the two companies have remarkably similar operating returns and shareholder gains over the years. Below is a chart looking at their enormous size today. Apple and Microsoft again are the two most valuable corporations traded on Wall Street, with each company worth around $2 trillion. It was just a few years ago that no company had surpassed $1 trillion in equity market capitalization (stock price multiplied by outstanding share count).

YCharts - Total Equity Capitalization Apple/Microsoft

YCharts - Total Equity Capitalization, Apple/Microsoft, 5 Years

The main differences between Apple and Microsoft revolve around different gross margins and balance sheet leverage. Apple's mostly manufacturing business is lower gross margin (43%) vs. Microsoft's software and networking focus (68%). Despite this fact, final net income margins are not that different, with Apple at 25% and Microsoft at 34%. In comparison, S&P 500 normal profit margins are under 10%.

In addition, manufacturing operations usually require more capital spending and debt leverage. Warren Buffett's major ownership position may also explain Apple's heightened use of leverage. He has encouraged the same at prior high-margin company investments like the Washington Post and The Coca-Cola Company (KO) over the decades. In the end, Microsoft has been reluctant to expend its cash, with falling leverage evident over the last five years.

Neither is expected to grow EPS rapidly in 2023, pictured below. Analyst estimates do rise more significantly for Microsoft after next year. I personally would not count out Apple's ability to raise prices and income after any recession ends.

Enterprise valuations including debt and cash are actually not radically different than five years ago. The EV to Revenue ratio comparison highlights Apple as cheaper (6.2x vs. 8.7x), but this valuation is a function of lower margins and growth prospects currently.

EV to EBITDA ratios, however, are nearly identical. Numbers around 18x are high vs. the overall U.S. stock market average well under 14x. Yet, investors are getting quality, defensive, diversified, brand-name, mild-growth choices in Apple and Microsoft during a looming recession. In other words, premium multiples on fundamental operations should be worth the price of admission.

Final Thoughts

My view is the U.S. stock market may be teetering on the edge of one last major drawdown, perhaps as it becomes apparent in early 2023 that an actual recession has begun. An acknowledgement by investors of lower corporate profits and spiraling fears of the unknown in a recession could tank the S&P 500 by 15%-20% in price into March. Under this bearish scenario, forecasting a 10% (possibly 15%) drop in Apple and Microsoft shares makes logical sense. At that point, with P/Es approaching 20x, the two would better fit a Buy rating. Such a price to earnings level would be HALF the late-2020 bubble valuation multiples around 40x.

If I was forced to pick just one to own or buy in coming months, I lean in favor of Apple, based on recent past recession performance opening successful long-term buy opportunities. Of course, the choice is not that simple. Apple is more dependent on smooth relations between China and Taiwan, plus China and the U.S., as Asia is where the vast majority of product is assembled and manufactured. Without cheap, efficient, and tech-educated laborers in Asia, Apple's business model would be far less profitable. So, COVID-19 lockdown issues in China and tensions over Taiwan's political independence are the primary outlier risks to monitor closely (outside of declining consumer demand globally if we get a severe recession).

Microsoft's buy argument is focused on the fundamental story. Less leverage, higher margins, and a slightly better business growth outlook are the positives. Either way, I suspect both companies should continue to "outperform" the S&P 500 over the next 12-18 months. If sharply lower corporate earnings are the immediate future, both Apple and Microsoft will serve as defensive ideas attracting elevated buy interest by active managers and investors. Net selling could pull prices down, but at a far slower pace than other equities.

For sure, outsized annual shareholder gains of 30% or even 20% are likely part of the past for each company. Their incredible size (preventing high growth) and new trends away from globalization are the reasons. Muted expectations of 5% to 10% total returns, including dividends (AAPL 0.6% cash yield vs. MSFT 1.1% currently), over the next five years is my base projection.

Throughout the nation's history, companies reaching for 10% valuations on existing GDP output have run into real competitive problems, with the government sometimes intervening to break up anticompetitive business models. Examples of this "speed limit" for company size are found in the government's successful effort to split Rockefeller's Standard Oil monopoly into 33 separate companies between 1906-1911, and the failed push to break up Carnegie's partly-owned U.S. Steel between 1911 and 1920. The original U.S. Steel amalgamation was the first U.S. company to have a market capitalization above $1 billion in 1901.

With Apple currently worth 8% of U.S. GDP output and Microsoft at 6%, "strong" shareholder gains can be argued as next to impossible, without citizen and politician calls to break up these behemoths into smaller entities more aligned with competitors. If there is any silver lining regarding large size today, it's the fact both have substantial sales and earnings outside of the U.S.

You can argue the two are some of the main beneficiaries of the globalization trend over the last three decades, where trader barriers have been reduced and international business has been encouraged. 59% of 2021 Apple sales originated outside of North America, while Microsoft generated 51% outside the U.S. last year.

Yet, deglobalization may be the new reality going forward, after COVID-19 pandemic closures exposed the downside of just-in-time inventories supplied from manufacturers all over the world. If overseas trade declines from 2020's peak, both Apple and Microsoft will encounter critical operating headwinds.

Growth into new business areas like Apple's rumored push into electric vehicles by 2026, and bolt-on transactions like Microsoft's attempted Activision Blizzard (ATVI) gaming software deal, are examples of future expansion initiatives. To reach growth rates above macroeconomic gains of 5% annually, both will need to reinvest cash flow wisely. I am confident when management teams realize outsized growth is no longer possible, huge dividend increases will be the decision to return shareholder capital. Both companies could easily support dividend yields of 3%+ on current cash and income generation.

Pulling together all the ideas, I am not overly enthused about either Apple or Microsoft as buy candidates in November 2022. However, lower quotes will bring better math for future gains. I am comfortable with a Hold/Neutral rating and some exposure to both in your portfolio. We may soon see how a recession affects business results and investor confidence.

  • You can use study guides, flashcards and practice questions to prepare for your exam. Registering for your test may cost several hundred dollars. 
  • This article is for anyone interested in entry-level cybersecurity jobs.

Looking for a career change? There’s no better time to consider a career in cybersecurity. U.S. businesses and government agencies are spending billions of dollars annually to protect their data and assets from malicious attacks. In fact, according to the 2022 Official Cybercrime Report by Cybersecurity Ventures, global cybersecurity spending will total $1.75 trillion between 2021 and 2025.

With the demand for qualified security professionals soaring, certification is a logical way to verify your skills and knowledge and get your resume noticed. We’ll highlight five certifications to help launch your cybersecurity career and offer test preparation tips.

Entry-level cybersecurity certifications

The following cybersecurity certifications are excellent ways to firm up your skill set and bolster your resume for hiring managers seeking to attract and retain the best employees.

1. Microsoft Certified: Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals

The Microsoft Certified: Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals certification is one of the most “entry-level” certifications we’re highlighting. Aimed at students, business users and IT professionals, this cert recognizes knowledge of numerous cybersecurity topics, including general Microsoft 365 and Azure. It also recognizes general IT knowledge or work experience and familiarity with cloud and networking computing concepts. To achieve certification, you must pass a single exam, which costs $99.

To Excellerate your chances of achieving this certification, Microsoft recommends using its self-paced Microsoft Learn content. Microsoft also suggests attending instruction events, taking practice exams and shadowing people who work in security, compliance, and identity management. 

Did you know?Did you know?: Microsoft certifications include numerous options for network engineers, security engineers and security operations analysts.

2. ISACA Cybersecurity Fundamentals

Folks in the security industry know ISACA for such long-running certificates as its Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and similar certifications – all of which grant intermediate to advanced credentials. They’re designed for IT professionals who want to help prevent and avoid network security threats and vulnerabilities.

The Cybersecurity Fundamentals certificate is designed to fill the entry-level niche. This certificate covers four cybersecurity-related domains: 

  • Threat landscape
  • Information security fundamentals
  • Securing access
  • Security operations and response

The single test costs $150 for ISACA members and $199 for nonmembers. The certificate doesn’t expire or require periodic recertification.

3. CompTIA Security+

Perhaps the most well-known entry-level security certification is the CompTIA Security+, which covers a wide array of security and information assurance topics, including:

  • Network security
  • Threats and vulnerabilities
  • Access controls
  • Cryptography
  • Risk management principles
  • Application, host and data security 

The certification meets U.S. Department of Defense Directive 8570.01-M requirements – an essential item for anyone looking to work in IT security for the federal government – and complies with the Federal Information Security Management Act.

CompTIA recommends that candidates have two years of relevant experience and achieve the Network+ credential before taking the Security+ exam. At $392, this test lands roughly midway between the least and most expensive compared to other entry-level certifications. The Security+ certificate leads to such jobs as security administrator, systems administrator and network engineer, among others.

TipTip: CompTIA is known for its vendor-neutral certification program. In general, CompTIA certifications are grouped according to skill set and focus on real-world skills all IT professionals need.

4. GIAC Information Security Fundamentals (GISF)

GIAC gears the GISF certification toward system administrators, managers and information security officers who need a solid overview of computer networks, security policies, incident response and cryptographic principles. 

The GISF test is considered to be more challenging than the CompTIA Security+ exam. GIAC certification exams in general require test takers to apply knowledge and problem-solving skills, so hands-on experience gained through training or on-the-job experience is recommended.

The GISF test costs $949. Although GIAC includes two practice exams in the certification-attempt package, this test price is exceptionally high.

After achieving the GISF, consider pursuing the GIAC Security Essentials (GSEC), an intermediate-level certification that takes a big step beyond foundational information security concepts.

TipTip: Check out our picks for the best business continuity and disaster recovery certifications to help you learn to recover systems after a disaster.

5. (ISC)2 Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP)

The (ISC)2 Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is probably the most recognizable and popular security certification today. But (ISC)2 offers several other security-related certifications, with the ANSI-accredited SSCP filling the entry-level slot. 

The SSCP prepares you for such jobs as security analyst, network security engineer and security administrator, which typically start at the junior level if you don’t already have technical or engineering-related information technology experience.

To achieve the SSCP, you must pass a single test that includes questions that span seven common body of knowledge (CBK) domains:

  • Access Controls
  • Security Operations and Administration
  • Risk Identification, Monitoring and Analysis
  • Incident Response and Recovery
  • Cryptography
  • Network and Communications Security
  • Systems and Application Security

To ensure that you have sufficient hands-on security knowledge before taking the exam, (ISC)2 recommends that you attend training courses or conference workshops, participate in webinars, and read white papers and books.

The test costs $2,490, and (ISC)2 offers a variety of study resources for purchase on its website.

Did you know?Did you know?: Many additional niche cybersecurity certifications can help you advance your IT career. For example, you can also achieve big data certifications, digital forensics certifications, computer hardware certifications and networking certifications.

Preparing for your exams

Regardless of which certification is the best fit for you, be prepared to devote ample self-study time to the effort. Many test takers prefer to use a top-rated study guide along with some practice questions and flashcards when preparing for a certification exam. 

If your learning style leans more toward formal, instructor-led training, factor the costs and required time into your plans. Although training costs vary by certification, they typically run from $400 to over $5,000, depending on whether you choose online, virtual classroom or in-classroom delivery.

Cybersecurity certifications can help you navigate your career path

Entry-level certifications are an excellent way to begin, Excellerate or ​​navigate your career path as an IT professional. Pursuing and achieving IT certifications helps you demonstrate a willingness to learn while developing the in-demand career skills your employers – and future employers – want.

Killexams : Alphabet: Fundamentals Indicate A Waning Corporation
South Lake Union Tech

400tmax

Investment Conclusion

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) is an excellent business in terms of generating net income and free cash flows. However, with respect to long-term growth potential, the company is far from attractive. Over the last nine-months ended September 2022, GOOG generated ~$207 billion in revenues, ~$46.3 billion in net income, and ~$44 billion in free cash flows, with a profit margin of 22.4%. Clearly, GOOGL is a cash cow. However, the current prosperity is based on advertisement revenues (80% of total sales) from businesses that are on track to declining growth, or generating moderate growth, over the long term.

Every day, Google Search is engaged in a losing battle with competitors slowly but surely capturing market share. In addition, although the YouTube business appears promising as a secular growth driver, given the lack of initiatives to further monetize the platform, it appears that any expansion in revenues, will be driven by external forces, indicating moderate growth. Further, Alphabet's Chrome Browser is losing market share in the U.S. and globally in regard to desktop computing. Moreover, Google Cloud which was launched 14 years ago, has 10% market share, solidly behind a key competitor that debuted two years later. Furthermore, the Other Bets segment, comprised of smaller companies, that remain unprofitable, is in our opinion, a loss leader, designed to accumulate customer data, to further personalize GOOG's advertisements (to expand advertising revenues). Not a single one among these enterprises, demonstrates the potential to evolve into a strong stand-alone business, generating substantial profits.

Nevertheless, Google Search that accounted for 72.4% of advertising revenues, over the prior three quarters, is so widely entrenched across the globe, that Alphabet as a business has the ability to absorb the implications of unfavorable market forces for a while, and continue to generate sufficiently large amounts of profits and free cash flows. That appears likely the justification for management inaction to enforce policies that would ensure significant long-term growth. Based on their public commentary, it appears that GOOGL's leadership believes the company is on track. Therefore, we do not expect any dramatic shifts in the corporation's long-term growth strategy.

We are initiating on Alphabet with a Buy Rating and a 1-year Price Target of $108/share, based on inputs to our 10-year Discounted Cash Flow model, which includes, a perpetual growth rate driven terminal value.

Investment Thesis

Alphabet, as Google, was founded in 1998 in Menlo Park, California. The company's present headquarters are in Mountain View, California. GOOG has research and development facilities and data centers located in North America, Europe, South America, and Asia.

The firm operates in two segments, Google and Other Bets. GOOGL's revenues are derived from: advertising sales generated by Google Search, YouTube, and Google Network; Google Other; Google Cloud; and Other Bets. Over nine months ended September, 2022, Google Search accounted for 58% of total revenues, YouTube for 10.3%, Google Network for 11.8%, total advertising for 80%, Google other for 9.8%, Google Services total for 89.8%, Google Cloud for 9.2%, and Other Bets for <1-2%.

The predominant issue surrounding Alphabet is whether the firm's current financial challenges are systemic? The secondary issue garnering investor interest is what is GOOG's long-term financial outlook? We answer the questions below.

GOOG's Best Days Appear Behind It

We believe the company's underwhelming performance over the previous three quarters is systemic. It is based on weakness in segments of GOOG's major businesses.

To illustrate, in the U.S., Google Search's market share is declining on an overall basis and with respect to desktop and mobile. Globally, although on a comprehensive basis and in terms of mobile, Google Search's trends are on an uptick, the platform's market share is contracting in regard to desktop.

The key beneficiary of Google Search's U.S. market share loss is Microsoft (MSFT), as its Bing is the default search engine on machines that operate on its Windows, the world's second most utilized operating system. In that regard, it is noteworthy that from April 2009 to January 2022, the percentage of U.S. web searches performed on Google sites decreased to 61.4% from 64.2%, while that associated with Microsoft sites increased to 26.8% from 8.2%. Although, some fraction of Google Search's U.S. web search was likely rerouted to mobile, importantly, mobile search in the region peaked at 64% in C2Q2020, had decelerated to 63% by C4Q2021, and has been steady since. In addition, on a world-wide basis, from January 2010 through October 2022, Google Search's desktop share has declined to 83.8% from 90.8%, and that related to Bing has expanded to 9.89% from 3.4%.

Further, that multiple larger countries now have indigenous search engines, which their citizens apparently prefer, with 85% of people in China utilizing Baidu, and 59% of the Russian population conducting web searches on Yandex, likely supported Google Search's loss of global desktop market share.

Nevertheless, Google Search will likely continue to dominate global search for a while due to strategies the firm has implemented to preserve a significant fraction of the search engine's market share. These include the acquisition of Android, which positions Alphabet to impose Google Search on a majority of smart phones. In addition, the corporation developed the Chrome browser (the world's most utilized browser), which has Google Search as the default search engine. Further, GOOGL agreed to pay Apple (AAPL) $10 billion/year to enforce Google Search as the default search engine on Apple products. Moreover, barriers to entry in the search engine business are high, not only because it expensive and difficult to get started, but also due to the large looming presence of Google Search, whose first mover advantage is onerous.

Therefore, although, smaller search engine companies are developing niche presences, with DuckDuckGo and Neeva that do not collect or share personal information on their users, and Ecosia and Ekoru that invest some percentage of their revenues on sustainability initiatives, the competition they present is hardly daunting, as yet. Microsoft, which similar to Alphabet is in the process of increasingly powering its search engine with artificial intelligence (AI), could represent more formidable competition.

However, these market forces combined with technological shifts (and Google Search's own inadequacies, for example, pushing to the top, results from: its own products as well as those from its partners and big advertisers, and those aligned with its world view), such as voice operated virtual assistants like Alexa and Siri, and product searches performed on: Amazon (AMZN) and Meta (META), as well as on dedicated websites such as Kayak, could slowly but surely accelerate the decline in Google Search's dominance.

In addition, although, clearly GOOG's content sharing social media platform YouTube is impressive, audience growth has declined between 2017 and 2021, decreasing to 4.9% from 9.4%. Although, advertising revenue growth associated with the organization is a function of multiple factors, predominantly dependent on advertiser's assessment of the impact of the economic environment on potential sales of their products and services, growth in the percentage of viewers is important, as advertising revenues are dependent on the number of clicks and views of five second programming. Therefore, in an absence of increased focus on monetizing strategies, we expect YouTube's secular growth to be moderate and driven by external forces. However, considering that the more time customers spend in the Google environment, the more personal data Alphabet captures on them, YouTube with the highest average duration/visit on the internet, provides the company the opportunity to further personalize advertisements and expand its advertising revenues.

Further, its browser Chrome has its own growth issues. The service is losing market share in the U.S., which accounts for 47% of GOOGL's total revenues. To be specific, Chrome usage related to desktop computing in the region continues to decrease. In addition, although Chrome is clearly the preferred browser on a global basis, the usage has peaked and the trend is downwards sloping, in regards to desktops. The key beneficiary of the browser wars appears to be Microsoft's Edge, particularly in the U.S., where it is capturing market share from Chrome in regard to desktop computing.

Moreover, although Alphabet projects Google Cloud as a long-term growth driver, fundamentals of the business suggest that capturing market share from Amazon's Amazon Web Service (AWS) and Microsoft's Azure will be challenging. In that regard, it is notable that AWS derives its edge from the massive scale of its operations, that include the largest global network of data centers and a myriad of constantly expanding services. Azure's primary advantage is that it is well integrated with the other services that Microsoft provides, including its Windows operating system. Since, a majority of world-wide corporations utilize Windows and additional Microsoft tools and services, it makes sense for them to select Azure as the cloud computing platform.

Given these factors, Google Cloud is viewed as a secondary provider within the cloud computing industry, chosen by competitors of Amazon, and companies that prefer an open system, which is less compatible with Azure. Accordingly, Google Cloud is positioned third in the market with 10% share, behind Azure with 21%, and AWS with 34% in the top spot. For nine months ended September 2022, Google Cloud revenues were ~$18.9 billion, Azure's were ~$56.7 billion, and AWS came in with ~$58.7 billion. Although, over the prior quarter, Google Cloud's revenues expanded by 38%, ahead of Azure's 35% growth, and AWS's 28%, the law of large numbers explains the difference, considering the significant disparity between the actual revenues of the platform and that of Azure and AWS.

The Other Bets segment of Alphabet is comprised of unprofitable companies which are highly unrelated to each other and to the corporation's core competency, with the only similarity (between the new firms) being that they are developers of emerging technology.

The arguably largest amongst them is Waymo, an enterprise focused on the development of autonomous driving technology. The firm is currently testing its driverless cars in several cities in the U.S., and has a ride-hailing service that utilizes its Lexus self-driving cars in Phoenix, with plans to expand into Los Angeles, over the near term. In addition, there is Loon that is working on providing internet connectivity in remote and rural areas deploying high-altitude balloons. An additional Other Bets enterprise is Fibre, founded in 2010, which provides broadband internet in roughly six U.S. cities. Calico is focused on research and development of technology that would prevent age-related medical conditions.

These ventures are so dissimilar, so early in their stages of development, and so diverse from the GOOGL's core competency, that their objectives appear misaligned with business development. Overall, given these factors, we do not consider any of the businesses featured under the Other Bets category as Alphabet's next leg of long-term growth.

GOOG has cited AI and Google Cloud as secular growth opportunities. In regard to the developing role of AI in Google Search, it is noteworthy that although all of the consumer data the company has access to powers the search engine, it does not necessarily render the platform competitively superior, as it appears unlikely that the technology will possess the ability to accurately predict the contents of the human mind, and given the results that a Google Search currently provides, it appears that AI is not performing optimally. Google Cloud's potential for generating substantial long-term growth appears doubtful, as we have discussed above. Therefore, we believe that fundamentals do not support significant long-term growth of Alphabet's business.

Financial Under-Performance Likely Permanent

Considering that we do not anticipate sharp shifts in GOOGL's long-term business strategy, our thesis predicates that secular financial outcomes will reflect the dynamics of continued market share losses associated with Google Search and the Chrome Browser, moderate growth of the YouTube platform, lackluster expansion in Google Cloud, and persistent profit destruction by the Other Bets segment.

In addition, given that we believe that strong FY2020 and FY2021 financial outcomes were a function of a once in a life-time event, when internet adoption rates expanded exponentially, as folks attempted to mitigate the impact of wide-spread lockdowns due to the pandemic, rather than based on fundamental shifts in underlying business conditions. In that respect, it is noteworthy that although digital advertising declined during the initial phases of the viral outbreak, it rebounded strongly towards C3Q2020 and beyond.

Further, we consider GOOG's financial results over the previous three quarters as indicative of future performance, particularly considering that the underwhelming results (missed consensus revenues and earnings estimates) were more a reflection of margin erosion due to a significant increase in hiring (advanced by 24% over the recent 12-months), represented in an increase in COGS, R&D, and S&M, as a percent of total revenues, the impact of which cannot be rolled back (as employees have to be compensated), although significant sales shortfall, on a year-over-year basis, was an additional factor. Moreover, even though on the F3Q2022 Earnings Call, management announced pullbacks in hiring and capital expenditures, we believe the effort is insufficient to off-set the permanent increase in spending.

Over nine months ended September 2022: revenues were ~$207 billion, reflecting a growth of 13.4% compared to the same period in FY2021; net income was ~$46.4 billion, reflecting a year-over-year decline of 16.3%, and earnings per share was $3.50 versus $4.08 over nine-months ended September 2021. Specifically, year-over-year growth associated with Google Search was 13.4%, that linked to YouTube was 5.3%, Google Network was 8.5%, Google Advertising total was 11.6%, Google Other was 2%, Google Services was 10.4% , Google Cloud was 38.8%, and Other Bets was 47.2%.

Furthermore, as a percent of sales, cost of revenues increased by 110 bps to 43.9%, R&D spending expanded by 160 bps to 14.1%, S&M advanced by 100 bps to 9.4%, and the tax rate declined by 200 bps to 14.5%. In addition, gross margins decreased by 90 bps to 56.1%, operating margins contracted by 280 bps to 27.4%, and profit margins declined by 770 bps to 22.4%. Moreover, operating income associated with Google Services decreased by 0.6%, that related to Google Cloud by 12.6%, and that linked to Other Bets by 16.2%. At the end of F3Q2022, Alphabet had a cash and cash equivalents balance of ~$22 billion and long-term debt of ~$14.7 billion on its balance sheet.

Clearly, over the prior three quarters, the company's financial performance weakened on all metrics except revenue growth. Given our thesis that long-term financial results are likely to be broadly consistent with those evidenced year-to-date, we are utilizing the performance as a barometer to develop our valuation for GOOGL.

We utilized 10-year Discounted Cash Flow analysis including a perpetual growth based terminal value, to arrive at a 1-year Price Target of $108/share for GOOG. We assume a normalized 10-year revenue growth rate of 9%, (vs. the nine-months ended September 2022 revenue growth rate of 13.4%). In addition, we derive our net income for 10-years using a net profit margin of 20% (vs. net profit margin of 22.4% during nine-months ended September 2022). Based on our analysis of GOOGL's historic financial reports, we model normalized 10-year operating cash flows as 30% of revenues/year and straight line 10-year capital expenditure as 12% of revenue/year. Furthermore, we deploy a perpetual growth rate of 3% and a weighted average cost of capital of 9% to reach our terminal value and present value of free cash flow figures. We utilize the current diluted outstanding share count of 13,353 million to arrive at our 1-year Price Target.

Risks

Anti-Trust Legislation Might Split Up The Company. Multiple governments across the globe would prefer that Alphabet be broken up into several independent companies to reduce conflict of interest between the different segments, and to foster competition. However, we do not believe a split of GOOGL is likely to unfold over the short term. The company's revenues are predominantly generated by advertising and its various businesses are designed to render the advertisements as effective as possible. That is GOOG's core competency and the organization will dedicate a substantial fraction of its resources to maintain its business model.

However, investors will benefit if Alphabet were to be broken up into parts, as given that pure-play companies secure premium valuation, the corporation's stock would rally on any news of an upcoming split of the firm. Whether the sum-of-the-parts would be more profitable than a consolidated GOOGL is arguable, in our judgment.

Bottom Line

Alphabet's Google is a cash cow, which with its billions of dollars of free cash flow generated every year could fund a company that with good counsel could develop a business as revolutionary as Google Search. That is the wild card surrounding the story. However, GOOG as a company in its present form, has hit a brick wall, in terms of potential runaway long-term growth. It's all down-hill from here.

Killexams : Bringing the power: Generac CIO Tim Dickson says IT leaders need to start innovating today

This article was co-authored by Duke Dyksterhouse, an Associate at Metis Strategy.

A lobby television isn’t all that uncommon or remarkable for a $4.5-billion-dollar company, but what’s on the 85-inch screen in the lobby of Generac’s headquarters certainly is. Rather than the predictable advertisements or staged photos featuring happy employees, it’s a demo of the energy management firm’s latest innovation, called PowerINSIGHTS.  

It’s an interactive platform. Zip and click and zoom about a map of North America bespeckled with glowing, Generac-orange dots, and as you dance about, watch the handful of key metrics in the UI change to reflect the region examined: UtilityScore, OpportunityScore, PowerScore. Simple metrics, but dense with information, telling not only of any one region’s energy landscape but of the entire energy market’s trajectory. 

Tim Dickson, CIO, Generac

Generac Power Systems

“Every day that I come into the office,” explains Tim Dickson, CIO of Generac, “I see people I’ve never met, people I’ve never even seen, standing around the demo screen in the lobby. And ideas for how to Excellerate it are pouring in. Other business units, like our subsidiary Ecobee, have already gotten involved. They’ve added their assets to the platform.” 

In the world of energy management, Generac’s PowerINSIGHTS platform is a riveting achievement in the race to extract an unprecedented level of intelligence from power grids, which have become more difficult to manage with the rise of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) like solar, EVs, and, of course, Generac generators. DERs are hard to visualize as they come in many forms and run on unpredictable schedules. PowerINSIGHTS changes that. Its glowing orange dots represent the once “hidden” DERs, and its accompanying metrics reveal how such energy in a geography is managed, used, distributed, and so on. 

“This platform brings an incredible amount of unseen energy into play,” says Amod Goyal, one of Generac’s development experts and the manager of the PowerINSIGHTS implementation. “We can see where there’s idle power that a customer might want to sell and where we can redistribute it to help people in need, like after a hurricane. We can do this all without providing any external access to customer data, and we never disclose any personal identifiable information.” 

PowerINSIGHTS’ value and novelty may make you think the platform is the premeditated outcome of an arduous program. Its display in the Generac lobby encourages that suspicion. But PowerINSIGHTS is the unexpected outcome of a hackathon led by Tim and his IT organization. Even more notably, the hackathon was one of Tim’s first initiatives after taking the helm as CIO in August of 2020. 

Conventional wisdom suggests CIOs should master IT fundamentals before they get innovative. The helpdesk must run like a German train station, the Wi-Fi can’t drop (ever), and the conference room must be easier to navigate than an iPhone. While getting the basics right is table stakes for any CIO, if you wait to innovate until your peers commend you for doing so, bring a comfy chair because you’re going to be waiting for a while. Additionally, the master-the-rules-before-you-break-them philosophy is exceedingly narrow. Who made Wi-Fi or conference-room navigation the rule? The CIO is meant to enable the business, and there are many ways to do that beyond ensuring network uptime.  

The best CIOs want to rattle their departments, change their organizations’ stars, and lunge at the big ideas white-boarded in a frenzy of inspiration. But, as is often the case, what if they don’t have the resources, the time, the money, or the mandate?  

Do it anyway, Tim says. You might surprise yourself. On the heels of the successful hackathon and PowerINSIGHTS development, he offered three points of advice and encouragement for technology leaders who want to drive innovation, even if they aren’t sure they are ready: You have more at your disposal than you think, your people are more talented than you know, and you will be known for what you do. 

You have more at your disposal than you think 

Despite what some IT leaders think, innovation is not reserved only for the Googles and the Teslas of the world. Additionally, not all innovative organizations need to be built from scratch. You don’t have to invest in a new kitchen to cook something new; sometimes you need only to step back and consider how you might differently combine the ingredients you already have.  

PowerINSIGHTS is a perfect example of this. No element of the platform is all that novel, Tim says, and Generac had the underlying data for years. What’s more, the geospatial visualization of that data was made possible by a feature of Microsoft Azure that had been hiding in plain sight. The innovation came from a new combination of these elements.  

There may also be significant change agents in your broader ecosystem. For example, to build momentum behind his hackathon, Tim recruited vendors to sponsor it. Microsoft, Databricks, and others sent in experts a month ahead of time to upskill Generac’s workforce. Suddenly, IT employees found themselves learning the things that interested them and developing the skills they wanted to develop. Other departments, feeling the excitement, jumped into the mix and IT employees found themselves solving problems alongside their peers from Connectivity and Engineering, a demonstration of the business partnership CIOs dream of. 

Often, the best inventions seem obvious in retrospect. Keep that in mind when you think your department lacks the resources to build something new. Tim recruited partners to support the hackathon, yes, but what made the difference was Tim’s push to give employees the chance to innovate with what they had. Without that push, it’s likely that the PowerINSIGHTS idea would not have seen the light of day.  

Your people are more talented than you know 

As corporate IT departments evolve, so too are the qualities their leaders seek in candidates. Where nuts-and-bolts, black-and-white problem-solving once may have sufficed, skills like ownership, autonomy, creativity, big-picture thinking, and continuous learning are quickly becoming essential. Because many IT leaders have yet to see their current employees exhibit these traits, they tend to think they lack them altogether. Therefore, they decide they cannot transform their department or make it innovative until they first hire the “right” people. Since that often requires a budget they don’t have, it’s a good excuse to stand still. 

Oftentimes, however, employees already have the autonomy, creativity, and all the attributes that companies covet; they just lack an avenue to showcase those attributes. As Tim predicted it would, the hackathon opened that avenue to Generac’s employees. He elaborated on this insight last year in Metis Strategy’s Digital Symposium: “We had 16 teams participate, 70 people, and we’ve implemented over half of [their] ideas in production deployment. What that showed me is that there was a significant amount of pent-up demand…a significant desire for folks who aspired to do more…and show and present their ideas…in a form that they didn’t necessarily have before.” 

The hackathon revealed such an explosive appetite for innovation that, in its wake, Tim and his colleagues configured a digital COE as a central muscle for nurturing that appetite on an ongoing basis. The COE helps anyone in the organization, regardless of their position or business unit, develop their ideas with emerging technologies. “It allows those people with the ideas an avenue to bring them to light,” explained Tim. “When you have that type of engagement from team members, where they feel their voices are being heard, that’s a model that can scale…so we’ve embraced that here at Generac.” 

You don’t always need better talent to innovate. Sometimes, you need to innovate to find out how good your talent is. That’s the paradox that drove Tim to host his hackathon in the first place. He wanted to learn who and what he was working with. Dickson likens it to karaoke: “You just don’t know who’s going to hop up, grab the mic, and just wail it out,” he says. “It’s one of the most inspiring things to witness. But you have to play a tune worth singing to.” 

You are known for what you do 

Aristotle once wrote, “We are what we repeatedly do.” Tim’s rendition is, “You will be known for what you do.” In either case, the emphasis is on the “do.” Tim’s gentle reminder to his employees, and his advice to CIOs, is that the most eloquent memos and best-laid plans are meaningless if there’s no action behind them. Don’t try to convince anyone that you or your department are innovators or wait for permission to become innovators. Be innovators. 

The key is to get to something real, however rough. If the idea is even halfway decent, says Tim, that will change everything. And PowerINSIGHTS is the perfect example. Prior to the hackathon and maybe even prior to that, Tim and his team could have frittered away time around the water cooler, spitballing the merits of such an innovation to anyone who would listen. But they didn’t. Instead, they built it, crude as the first iteration may have been. At first, the user interface was Spartan, the user experience clunky, but no matter. 

“Once we had something people could see and touch, the whole mood shifted,” Tim said. “The CEO actually… proposed some of the first use cases for PowerINSIGHTS and has remained very involved in the project since.”  

That initial action on the innovation front led to real transformation for legacy processes and technologies as well. In Generac’s case, one of the biggest shifts has been an embrace of cloud infrastructure. “Everything was on-prem when I started. But cloud will be essential to supporting PowerINSIGHTS in the long run, so we’ve stood up a cloud-first infrastructure. And of course, the benefits of that have reached beyond PowerINSIGHTS.”  

We preach often in this column that you don’t have to have all the answers before embarking on an innovation initiative. Tim and PowerINSIGHTS are clear evidence of that. His team had a plan, of course, but they didn’t wait for anyone’s permission to leap. CIOs hoping to reposition their organizations need not wait. By engaging teams across the organization and acting quickly, you will likely discover new opportunities for innovation, energize a team of talented and passionate people, and win respect, quickly, from your peers.

Mental health nurses are in high demand due to the rise in mental health issues around the world. Picture by Shutterstock

Mental health nurses are in high demand which is partly due to the rise in mental health issues around the world. They provide support to those who are suffering from everything from anxiety and depression to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

But what does it take to be a mental health nurse and what are some of the fundamentals to provide this much-needed service?

What is mental health nursing and what do they do?

Mental health nursing is a specialised area of nursing that focuses on the care and treatment of those with mental health issues. Most nurses are qualified and start off with the Bachelor of Nursing and then can move on to the Master of Mental Health Nursing if desired.

The most important role of nurses is the specialised care they provide, this includes listening to patients, providing emotional support, and helping them to access resources and services.

Importance of mental health nurses

Mental health nurses are in high demand due to the rise in mental health issues around the world. With an increasing number of people suffering from conditions such as anxiety and depression, there is an increasing need for nurses who specialise in mental health care.

This is because traditional methods are often not enough and doctors cannot provide the attention or time required to truly make a patient improve.

What it takes to be a mental health nurse

If you want to become a mental health nurse, you will need to gain the necessary study in the field as well as have placement or work experience for a sufficient amount of time.

It is also important that you have strong interpersonal skills, as well as a good understanding of mental health issues. You should also be able to provide emotional support, as well as guidance and direction when necessary.

It is a long process of study but once you have your qualification it can be an incredibly rewarding career.

Fundamentals required to become a mental health nurse

Aside from the normal path of study, there is a range of skills and character traits necessary to become a mental health nurse. While we can't go through every single one, here are the most important ones you should focus on during your journey.

Patience

One of the most vital skills that nurses need to have is patience, this is because many of the patients they work with are often in a lot of pain and distress.

They could be resistant to help or treatment, so nurses need to be able to persevere and maintain patience to help them. Also due to the nature of mental health, it may take an extended amount of time to see conditions Excellerate so nurses should be prepared.

Another reason why patience is essential for mental health nurses is that they often have to deal with difficult and challenging behaviour from their patients.

This can include verbal abuse, aggression, or even violence. It is very important to remain calm in situations like these and not take it personally as it's a symptom of mental health issues.

Empathy and understanding

Mental health nurses need to be able to empathise with their patients in order to provide the best possible care. This means that they need to be able to understand what the patient is going through and put themselves in their shoes.

They need to be able to feel what the patient is feeling and understand their perspective. This is often essential in order to build a rapport with the patient and help them feel comfortable opening up.

Communication skills

Having good communication skills is important for nurses because they need to be able to relay information accurately. This means that they need to listen carefully and make sure they understand what the patient is saying so they are in the best position to help.

They also need to be able to pass on information accurately between doctors, therapists, and other members of the team.

Confidentiality

Mental health nurses also require confidentiality when it comes to discussing a patient's condition with others.

They must keep all information confidential unless the patient gives permission for it to be shared.

This is not only important in order for the patient to feel safe and comfortable opening up about their condition but as legality, all patient information should be kept confidential.

Killexams : The Santa Claus rally in the stock market is at risk as 3 bearish fundamentals dominate bullish seasonal trends
  • The typical Santa Claus rally in stocks is threatened this year as bearish fundamentals dominate, according to TS Lombard.
  • The investment firm said the equity rally since the mid-October low "looks overdone."
  • The threat of a recession implies higher volatility going forward, which is a negative for stock prices.

Investors have been conditioned to expect a Santa Claus rally in the stock market heading into year-end as trading volumes decline, news flows dwindle, and positive psychology permeates among retail investors, but that may not be the case this year.

According to a note from TS Lombard, while positive seasonals definitely boost the prospect of further gains, they're outweighed by the fundamentals.

And right now, three bearish fundamental factors are dominating the markets and increase the likelihood that the typical Santa Claus rally stumbles this year, according to the note.

"Equity performance looks overdone."

Stocks have already seen big gains since their mid-October low, with the S&P 500 rallying 13%, and up 10% so far in the fourth quarter. But those gains are double the median fourth-quarter rally of 5.5%, and the average fourth-quarter rally of 4.3%.

"Additionally, when the S&P rallies above its 50 and 100-day moving average, it looks technically vulnerable as it heads towards its 200-day moving average," TS Lombard said. That's exactly what's happening, as the index backed away from its 200-day moving average in recent days, falling more than 2%.

"Moreover, the rally in equities contrasts with the rates volatility rebound on the recent spate of Fed hawkish speak," TS Lombard said. The 10-year US Treasury yield has surged nearly 20 basis points over the past two days to 3.77%.

"There is a lot of event risk into yearend."

"This week alone we will have a key speech from Powell, US core PCE and a jobs report, followed by an OPEC meeting at the weekend. Then virtually every developed market central bank will report over a two-week period. Plus there will be the US CPI one day before the final Fed meeting of the year, where we will get a new set of projections, dots, and the markets pivot narrative will be put to the test," TS Lombard said.

That's a lot of volatile events for investors to digest in such a short period of time, and it could ultimately lead to big downside moves in the stock market.

"Recession generally implies lower risk assets and higher volatility."

As yield curves turn inverted, the writing is on the wall: an economic recession is imminent. That's been TS Lombard's base case since the summer, and the effects of a economy slow walking into a recession means investor sentiment is likely to plummet.

"It is important to note that as the economy deteriorates into a recession, adverse sentiment kicks in and things tend to become non-linear, accelerating the slowdown. Correspondingly, volatility tends to rise form half a year before the recession begins, spiking at the start of the recession," TS Lombard said.

Altogether, the heightened risk for the economy and volatility means that while the end of the year tends to be positive for the stock market based on seasonals, there's high likelihood that bearish fundamentals could dominate and lead to a fizzled out rally.
