Why You Should Hold Off Buying Weibo Corp (ADR) Stock

There's a short-term pullback brewing up for this red-hot name

By James Brumley

We’re talking about a 20-point difference between buying at a short-term peak and stepping in at a short-term low. That’s roughly a 20% improvement on your entry price at the stock’s current levels.

Don’t Hesitate, Buy Weibo Corp at All-Time Highs

This Chinese online tech firm continues to tear it up

By Louis Navellier

A large chunk of WB is owned by online firm Sina Corp (NASDAQ:SINA) as well as online retailer Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA).


Revenue grew by 61% compared to last year’s stellar quarter. Its monthly active users were up more than 25% for the quarter, to 376 million.

And it now has 33 million more daily active users, putting the total at 165 million.

Advertising revenue grew 56%, its non-advertising revenue grew 92%.

Yes, WB stock is up 111% year to date. It’s trading at all-time highs and it has a current P/E of 99.

Stocks to Double Your Money: Weibo (WB)

It’s crazy to think how well shareholders in Weibo Corp (ADR) (NASDAQ:WB) have done since its IPO in April 2014 at $17 a share.

WB stock is up 68% annually with 37% in calendar 2015, 108% in 2016 and 188% year to date through Nov. 24.

Doubling in each of the past two years, Weibo’s going to need to keep the pedal to the metal if it wants to do it again over the next 12 months.

However, if there’s a Chinese stock that can do it, I wouldn’t bet against the micro-blogging social media platform.

Recently, I called Sina Corp (NASDAQ:SINA) a better buy than Weibo because despite owning 46% of the company (72% of its votes) it spun-off in 2014, its market cap was one-third the size.

A bargain hunter’s dream stock.

However, make no mistake. Weibo is the stock that drives Sina’s engine. If Weibo doesn’t move, Sina has no chance of doubling in value over the next 12 months.

Sina’s best chance of doubling in the next year happens if Weibo gets bought by one of a handful of large companies interested in the company, including Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) which already owns over 31%.

Tech Stocks That Will Be Acquired in 2018: Weibo (WB)

As I’ve noted in the past, Weibo Corp (ADR) (NASDAQ:WB), one of China’s leading social networking sites, is extremely undervalued relative to its potential — compare its market cap to that of Facebook.

Moreover, the company should benefit from the rapid growth of the Chinese economy.

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, which already owns over 30% of Weibo stock, can greatly increase its traffic by advertising as much as it wants on the social network.

Finally, buying Weibo would enable Alibaba to bring its winning formula to many other countries, putting many more billions in Alibaba’s massive coffers.

Weibo: Growth Is More Sustainable Than The Market Thinks

by Lisa Liu

Summary

Weibo is a Chinese social media platform that is growing rapidly both financially and in terms of users, and shows no signs of slowing down.

Weibo’s international initiatives and unique position in the market are driving this growth.

Although Weibo is currently trading at a premium to many of its peers, this premium is reasonable given its recent performance.

Weibo faces no true competitors in terms of function and is protected from foreign competition by the Great Firewall of China.

Boasts 376 million monthly active users.

On November 7, 2017, Weibo announced its Q3 results, with highlights including an 81% increase in revenue year-over-year to $320 million and a 215% increase in net income year-over-year to $101 million.

Monthly active users also grew by 79 million year over year to 376 million, 92% of which are mobile monthly active users.

Dramatically improved its gross margin from 30% to 74%.

Could Weibo Corporation Be a Millionaire Maker Stock?

by Leo Sun

Weibo's stock isn't cheap at 95 times earnings.

Its revenue soared 81% annually to $320 million last quarter, marking its seventh straight quarter of accelerating sales growth.

Advertising and marketing revenues rose 77% to $277 million. Its monthly active users (MAUs) climbed 27% to 376 million.

Its non-GAAP net income surged 111% annually to $115 million last quarter, and its GAAP net income jumped 215% to $101 million.

Analysts expect Weibo's revenue and earnings to respectively rise 68% and 104% this year.

Alibaba (NYSE: BABA), which integrated its Alipay payment system into Weibo's platform (Weibo Payment) nearly four years ago. It also holds content streaming partnerships with the NBA and Alibaba's Youku Tudou.

Toutiao, a rapidly growing news aggregator platform that reaches 180 million MAUs, is also frequently identified as a threat to Weibo's social network and SINA's news portals.

Weibo also started requiring all of its users within China to register their real names, hired more censors, and even introduced a "social credit" system for banning certain users.

All these moves will cause Weibo's costs and expenses -- which already jumped 50% annually to $201.6 million last quarter -- to keep rising. Meanwhile, its cash and equivalents fell from $365 million at the end of 2016 to just $187 million last quarter.

Stock Market Successes: Weibo (WB)

What do you get when you cross Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) and Facebook, Inc (NASDAQ:FB) in China (where both are banned, by the way)?

You get a Sina Weibo, or as it’s called by the micro-blogging platform’s owner/operator, just Weibo Corp (ADR) (NASDAQ:WB).

It has been a smash hit, to say the least. Top-line growth is on pace to grow 22% next year, with per-share earnings growth projected at 76%.

It dominates the nation’s social networking scene, and has leveraged its size into more growth. That has been the trajectory for a while now, hence the stock’s 150% gain so far this year.

And yet, it has only scratched the surface. Barclays analyst Gregory Zhao recently reiterated his bullish stance on WB, explaining “our positive view on WB’s rev growth potential is mainly underpinned by the substantial upside of newsfeed ad’s relatively low market share in China, which is only 14% now.”
