It’s being proven what we all thought. ICANN is a for profit entity. The profit is to make sure all those that work their have the cash to travel and make salaries of fortune 500 companies. They officially regulate but its really just a money grab. The latest is the payoff received to ensure that Verisign can raise dot com rates. I shouldn’t have to but there is an easy way to hedge and offset all lost money from ICANN’s sellout. Buy stock of VeriSign.
Over the last three years the yields have been more than enough to cover any increases that Verisign can dish out. Buying stocks is risky and there is no guarantee you will make money and could lose money so don’t take this as advice. But if you had you would have lost a few percentage in 2016, Been up around 40% in 2017, around 30% in 2018, and around 20% in 2019. When VeriSign raises prices on us, they make more money, their stock goes up. Plain and simple. It works financially.
What it doesn’t cover is if VeriSign jacks up something else and the company suffers setbacks despite having money thrown in their lap. Without getting too technical, a few calls for a few hundred dollars can cover a 5000 name portfolio from price increases easily. That way you can lock in your costs. And by lock in I mean in theory, it certainly doesn’t always work. Again. Don’t take my advice. Just trying to stir your brain a little.
