Apple Extends Alliance With Verizon to Boost Music Service

VZ AAPL

Apple AAPL recently expanded ties with Verizon VZ driven by positive user response to its earlier partnership with the company. Notably, since last August, Verizon has been offering a six-month free trial of Apple Music subscription to its postpaid unlimited data subscribers.Starting Jan 17, 2019, the iPhone maker’s Music subscription service will be offered for free to the U.S. telecom company’s customers subscribed to plans, Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited. Moreover, the company added 1.2 million retail postpaid connections in fourth-quarter 2018.Also, Verizon users will get high Internet speed after the company deploys 5G wireless services and provide mobile hotspots in multiple U.S. markets in 2019. The move is expected to help Apple reach customers outside its iOS ecosystem as Samsung commanded 33% smart TV market share in the United States in 2018, per Statista, and is also the world’s largest TV manufacturer with more than 20% market share.Can Apple Gain Edge Over Spotify?Apple had 56 million subscribers (paid and free) as of fourth-quarter fiscal 2018, per Financial Times.However, the company lagged Spotify’s SPOT global premium subscriber base of 87 million, which grew 40% year over year in third-quarter 2018.

Why Verizon Communications Is a Great Stock for Low-Risk Investors

VZ

That fact provides wireless carriers like Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) with a predictable source of revenue and profits that can be depended on no matter what is going on with the economy. In this segment from Industry Focus: Tech, host Dylan Lewis and Fool.com contributor Brian Feroldi share why they think Verizon is a great stock pick for investors who want to de-risk their portfolios. They pay it the same way they pay their electric bill or their water bill. So, even during a downturn, you can feel really good that Verizon's core wireless business is going to hold up extremely well, because consumers are so willing to pay for their cellphone. That gives them that premium pricing, and I think it gives them a little bit more stability, insulates them from a lot of the competitive pricing that we see from the Sprints and T-Mobiles of the world.

'It's union busting 101': documents reveal Verizon's attacks on organized labor

VZ

Unions offer “empty promises and unrealistic expectations” and don’t act with “integrity”, according to internal documents circulated by Verizon’s human resources department and obtained by the Guardian. Verizon also criticized a 2016 strike of workers at their Brooklyn retail stores and nearly 40,000 other unionized employees who work as network technicians and customer service reps, citing its impact on “working conditions for our employees and experience for our customers”. “We don’t believe unions are necessary at Verizon Wireless or that you or your coworkers will be well served by electing a union as your collective voice.” Verizon argues the only difference between unions and non-union represented employees are the dues union members pay. Verizon added: “Instead of treating employees as individuals, the company has to negotiate with the union on behalf of all employees collectively.” The documents claim union representation has declined because state and federal labor laws protect workers for free.
