Famous World Ideologies, as explained by references to Cows
  1. Feudalism: You have two cows. Your lord takes some of the milk.
  2. Pure Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes them and puts them in a barn with everyone else’s cows. You have to take care of all the cows. The government gives you all the milk you need.
  3. Bureaucratic Socialism: Your cows are cared for by ex-chicken farmers. You have to take care of the chickens the government took from the chicken farmers. The government gives you as much milk and eggs the regulations say you should need.
  4. Fascism: You have two cows. The government takes both, hires you to take care of them, and sells you the milk.
  5. Pure Communism: You have two cows. Your neighbors help you take care of them, and you all share the milk.
  6. Real World Communism: You share two cows with your neighbors. You and your neighbors bicker about who has the most “ability” and who has the most “need”. Meanwhile, no one works, no one gets any milk, and the cows drop dead of starvation.
  7. Russian Communism: You have two cows. You have to take care of them, but the government takes all the milk. You steal back as much milk as you can and sell it on the black market.
  8. Perestroika: You have two cows. You have to take care of them, but the Mafia takes all the milk. You steal back as much milk as you can and sell it on the “free” market.
  9. Cambodian Communism: You have two cows. The government takes both and shoots you.
  10. Militarism: You have two cows. The government takes both and drafts you.
  11. Totalitarianism: You have two cows. The government takes them and denies they ever existed. Milk is banned.
  12. Pure Democracy: You have two cows. Your neighbors decide who gets the milk.
  13. Representative Democracy: You have two cows. Your neighbors pick someone to tell you who gets the milk.
  14. British Democracy: You have two cows. You feed them sheep’s brains and they go mad. The government doesn’t do anything.
  15. Bureaucracy: You have two cows. At first the government regulates what you can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them. Then it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing cows.
  16. Pure Anarchy: You have two cows. Either you sell the milk at a fair price or your neighbors try to take the cows and kill you.
  17. Pure Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
  18. Capitalism: You don’t have any cows. The bank will not lend you money to buy cows, because you don’t have any cows to put up as collateral.
  19. Environmentalism: You have two cows. The government bans you from milking or killing them.
  20. Political Correctness: You are associated with (the concept of “ownership” is a symbol of the phallo-centric, war mongering, intolerant past) two differently – aged (but no less valuable to society) bovines of non-specified gender.
  21. Surrealism: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.
Cell phone plans suck

So, after doing some research, I was thinking about going with Ting.

It could potentially be an expensive experiment, because I’d have to buy a new phone. Of course, the problem is, with the husband retiring from the USAF this year, money is just stupidly tight, so taking a chance like this is kind of scary.

But having a pay-for-what-you-use plan is way the hell better than getting charged for everything I *don’t* use. Even the minimum voice/data/text plan with AT&T is stupidly expensive compared to Ting.

Anyone have any experience with them?

And, uh, anyone have a phone they want to sell?

Ting - Why has it taken this long for a cell carrier to do this?

I was listening to TWIG, and had one of my strongest reactions to an ad that they’ve ever done.

Ting is a cell phone carrier with an innovation that blows me away. WE NEED THIS IN CANADA! It has 2 major components

  1. Pick voice plan, text plan, and data plan independently of each other. Each of the plans has a “0” option. Don’t want a voice plan? Pick 0 minutes. This is especially appealing for deaf customers, that often have to fight with their carrier to be exempted from a voice plan that they can’t use. 
  2. If you don’t use very much, and find you would have qualified for a smaller plan, they downgrade your plan AND CREDIT YOU THE DIFFERENCE! (automatically) If you use more than expected and go past your plan, they simply bump you to the next package rather than charge overage fees (unless you are going above the biggest plan they offer). This means the only reason you even care what plan you pick is because you want to track your usage against certain expected metrics. 

Take a look.

I can’t believe I am sitting here flogging an American cell phone carrier, but this is a direction that carriers need to go. This is a plan that is not designed to make much money from 1 user, but is designed to appeal so strongly to people that they will make the move to the service. 

You might quibble over how much should be charged for an SMS or a minute or talk, but I don’t think anyone can quibble with the overall plan setup being unfair.

Nearing a Value Buy: Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ:TCX)

image

We look at Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ:TCX) [Trend Analysisa company in the Technology industry getting a lot of attention at the moment, to assess if it provides value for investors considering buying or selling it. Currently Tucows Inc. is trading at $25.42 after moving up 4.22% in the previous day of trading.

TCX is trading with a trailing 12 month P/E multiple of 33.89 and an estimated forward P/E multiple of 18.35. The stock has an estimated 5 year annual growth of 28.97% and a PEG multiple of 1.17.

Rather than the usual Price to Earnings (P/E) multiple method, we use a slightly different method to assess if Tucows Inc. is potentially a value buy for investors, the PEG ratio (P/E to growth). This PEG multiple takes into account the expected long term growth in earnings of the company rather than merely the growth for one earnings period ahead as forward P/E does.

That is to say, P/E simply doesn’t account for the long term prospects of TCX. As a rule of thumb, a stock with a PEG of between 0 and 1 is usually considered to be underpriced, between 1 and 2 to be at fair value and over 2 to be overpriced. Based on the PEG ratio of TCX being 1.17, we consider Tucows Inc. to likely be priced at fair value.

This analysis means that value buyers who do not currently hold Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ:TCX) should probably look for better value alternatives and investors currently holding the stock should either continue to hold or sell and look for alternatives.

The mean analyst 12 month target price for Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ:TCX) is currently $22.00 or 13.45% below the current price. Additionally, the stock has been as high as $25.62 and as low as $12.07 in the last 52 weeks. Analysts are estimating that TCX will report earnings per share of $0.28 next quarter.
