Chinese Stocks to Buy: Weibo (WB)

On Jan. 26, the price of Weibo stock exceeded $136-per-share. By Feb. 8, the shares had plunged to around $112 and Weibo stock is now trading around $115.

Market weakness undoubtedly played a role in the decline, but the Chinese government’s decision to order the company to suspend several portals for a week on Jan. 27 probably contributed to the retreat as well.

Investors often get scared after such crackdowns, but they have happened before without having any major impact on Weibo and Weibo stock has still risen tremendously over the long-term despite these actions by Beijing.

Moreover, the Chinese government does not have any significant legal constraints as in America, nor does it have to worry meaningfully about popular opinion. Therefore, if China wanted to take drastic action against Weibo, it would have done so already.

I believe that Beijing takes these steps periodically simply in order to remind popular internet websites that they must prevent their users from posting content that violates Beijing’s rules too directly.

Meanwhile, Weibo’s fundamentals remain strong. The company’s fourth-quarter results beat expectations, and research firm Jefferies recently raised its price target on the shares to $160 from $150, The Fly reported.

According to Jefferies, “the combination of user growth, time spent, ad pricing improvement and diversifying video ad products gives the company the ‘right formula in further scaling up monetization efficiency'”.

Finally, as I’ve said in the past, there is a good chance that Weibo will be taken over by Alibaba.

Why Weibo Corp Stock Could Be Cheap and Climb 30%

by Bret Kenwell

Weibo stock trades at 23 times last year’s revenue, but analysts expect sales to surge almost 57% this year. Weibo’s not a one-hit wonder either, with estimates calling for 37% growth in 2019 as well.

Analysts expect earnings per share of $2.81 this year, up 56% year-over-year. In 2019, consensus estimates call for further growth of almost 44%.

In this light, WB stock price trades at 41 times 2018 estimates and just 29 times forward earnings estimates.

While 29 times 2019 estimates isn’t exactly cheap in many investors’ minds, it’s not that bad when you consider that it will grow earnings and sales by 50% this year and both by almost 40% the following year.

The highest price target on Wall Street currently stands at $160, implying almost 31% upside from current levels — and that’s not just some rogue bull either.

The average price target sits just below, near $153 and implies close to 25% upside. Clearly, Wall Street is optimistic on the stock.

I would look to buy on a pullback to $110, on a breakout over $140 or possibly on a move back above trend-line support.

Weibo Corp (WB)

It’s been compared to Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR), though it’s not exactly an adequate comparison.

Weibo Corp (ADR) (NASDAQ:WB), which operates an ad-supported microblogging site in China, has plenty of similarities to Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), as the user experience is so much more immersive.

Regardless of what it’s most comparable to though, Weibo posts numbers that turns heads, and is expected to keep doing so for the foreseeable future.

Last quarter’s revenue of $350 million were up 76% year-over-year, and for the quarter underway Weibo is looking for sales of between $420 million and $430 million. That’s well up from the year-ago top line of $253 million.

Chinese Stocks to Consider: Weibo (WB)

Weibo (NASDAQ:WB) is considered by many to serve as China’s equivalent of Twitter (NYSE:TWTR). Thanks to the Chinese government, they enjoy market protection from both Twitter and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB).

This means the company and the stock behave as if the U.S. does not exist anyway. In light of that, a trade war with the U.S. should not make much difference to WB stock.

At the beginning of the year, I called WB stock a bargain and recommended a buy. That remained true until it was not true, and beginning in February it became caught in a generalized market slump. It is down a little over 5% since the beginning of the year.

However, it has risen by about eightfold since the $12.09 per share low of 2016. Most investors would tolerate a few months of stagnation for such a return.

Hence, I stand by my conclusions from January and expect growth to continue. Although profits have stopped rising by triple digits, the stock will likely see profit growth above 50% per year both this year and next. It should remain above 40% in 2020.

Most growth investors would agree that paying 55 times earnings stands as a bargain for such growth.

Weibo has grown its active user base to 411 million users, up from 376 million last year. Even if trade with the U.S. declines, WB stock should continue to rise as its user base continues to grow.

Top Growth Stocks: Weibo (WB)

Known as “China’s answer to Twitter,” Weibo (NASDAQ:WB) is a social media company that allows Chinese users to express themselves, connect with others, discover Chinese-language content and use push notifications on their mobile devices.

While its Twitter of China description was pretty accurate in its early days, now it’s much more diversified — it’s more like the Facebook of China at this point.

Weibo now offers online games and mobile apps that have created a very complete social media experience in a young, enthusiastic consumer demographic.

It’s no surprise then that WB has experienced tremendous growth since its launch in 2010, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

Trade war talk has soured the market on WB, but that’s to our advantage. WB has enormous potential growth in China and Asia, without any need to look to the U.S.

Chinese Stocks at Risk From the Currency Crash: Weibo (WB)

Shares of Weibo Corp (NASDAQ:WB) — known as the Chinese Twitter — are threatening to fall below their late June lows capping a decline of nearly 40% from the highs last seen in March.

Recent results have fallen short of analyst estimates, and the team at BNP Paribas recently initiated coverage with a Hold rating.

The company will next report results on August 8 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of 66 cents per share on revenues of $428.9 billion.

When the company last reported on May 9, earnings of 50 cents per share beat estimate say three cents on a 61% rise in revenues.

Unstoppable Stocks to Buy No Matter What: Weibo Corp (WB)

Digital Ad Growth Should Push WB Stock to $200

A lot of people call Weibo Corp (ADR) (NASDAQ:WB) the Chinese Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR), but Weibo would probably be offended by the comparison. After all, Weibo has nearly 25% more users than Twitter.

But Twitter has a bigger market cap. That doesn’t make much sense. Twitter’s larger market cap is simply a result of bigger revenues. But those bigger revenues are the result of higher AR

PU, which is the result of the U.S. digital ad market being bigger and more complete than the China digital ad market.

Eventually, China’s digital ad market will be significantly bigger and just as complete as the U.S. digital ad market.

At that point in time, Weibo’s ARPU should be on-par with, if not greater than, Twitter’s ARPU. Considering Weibo’s user base is 25% larger, that should translate to at least 25% higher revenues and a 25% bigger valuation.

Because of this, WB stock should remain a big winner over the next several years.

Buy Weibo Stock Before It Doubles

This social media juggernaut is just getting warmed up

By LOUIS NAVELLIER

BABA owns 31.5% of WB stock. That means 77% of WB stock is now in the hands of 2 of the biggest online players in China.

Q1 numbers were released in May and they showed that WB is still growing rapidly.

Monthly active users were up another 79 million to 392 million, with 93% mobile users. Daily active users were up 33 million to 172 million.

Net revenue was up 77%.

Q2 numbers won’t be ready until August 8, but it’s unlikely the numbers are going to dive.
