An interesting report last night by Sina (SINA) - the company posted an enormous impairment charge of $350M ($5.10 per share!) but of course in Wall Street world we don't count one time charges as real, so instead the company reported EPS of 26 cents versus analysts 25 cents.  (I continue to be at a loss at why they invested in Mecox, which sells clothes online - boggling)  There continue to be concerns about censorship on their Weibo (Chinese Twitter) platform and the costs associated with...

10/13/11Sina (SINA) Trading in its Own Zone (Fund my Mutual Fund)

Not really sure what is happening in Sina (SINA) today - it's up 13% on a day where not much is happening in the market.  Maybe some speculators reaching for a beta trade on a slow day.  Can't seem to find an analyst upgrade or anything of that sort. This name was hit along with a bunch of the cChinese internets a few weeks ago on the reports of regulators looking into accounting... It's obviously right below a hoard of resistance...

There has not been much use looking at company fundamentals the past month, as the macro has dominated everything but eventually the focus will return back to individual stories.  Sina (SINA) reported earnings Wednesday night and much like the previous quarter, profits are suffering as the company continues to plow dollars into their Twitter like service, Weibo.  That service has now hit the 200M user mark, which is remarkable - but like the U.S. version, one wonders how many are active...

6/27/11WSJ: China's 'Twitter' Has Big Dreams (Fund my Mutual Fund)

It's about 6 months late, but the Wall Street Journal finally wrote an in depth piece on Weibo.  Of course a huge run in the stock was missed if you focus on the 'old news' outlets solely.  But with the big selloff [May 16, 2011: Sina Breaking Down so Tread Cautiously], I suppose one saunter in hoping for another run.

6/22/11Wild Sina (SINA) (Fund my Mutual Fund)

After being a superstar stock from late 2010 til spring 2011 on the back of its Twitter like offering Weibo, Sina (SINA) was crushed in this correction - falling by roughly half from its mid April highs in the mid $140s.  Indeed, the previous 12 sessions going into yesterday it had fallen in 11 of them, losing some $50.  Clearly this name was in the hands of the momo crowd. But those type of selloffs lead to substantial oversold bounces, and moves like we saw yesterday keep bringing back...

"Mad Money" host Jim Cramer returned to his long-held view that Baidu (BIDU), China's largest provider of Internet search services, is the only investable name among Chinese stocks, calling SINA (SINA) a "dice roll."

5/16/11Sina's (SINA) Breaking Down so Tread Cautiously (Fund my Mutual Fund)

While still finding Sina (SINA) very attractive in the long run, I would advise those speculating in the shares to be careful at this moment.  Much like silver, Sina turned to a momo play (based on valid fundamentals) and that attracts a whole new breed of "investor".  Once the momentum breaks, they leave en masse and with such sharp run ups (silver or Sina) you don't have much underlying support.  While I was a little early in the first week of April, taking some profits along the way...

5/13/11Sina (SINA) Misses EPS Targets Slightly as it Invests in Weibo, Guides Down Slightly for Q2 Revenue (Fund my Mutual Fund)

Sina (SINA) reported a miss in earnings in after hours by 2 cents, but the stock is largely unaffected.  At this point, despite not so hot revenue growth (+17% year over year), the company is being valued for its "Twitter of China" (Weibo) and hence investors are overlooking the near term, for the potential unlocking of value in an IPO in the coming years. Technically the stock has come in to the 50 day moving average, after a wild run in which it essentially doubled in value in 6...

4/21/11Goldman Sachs Downgrades Sina (SINA) to Sell (Fund my Mutual Fund)

In Wall Street talk where 90% of the analyst game is promoting good relationships (and ratings) so their investment banking arm can win future business, an outright "sell" rating is rare as a dodo bird.  I wrote about this quite a few years ago.  [Dec 5, 2007: The Games Analysts Play... Why No One Ever Says Sell]  Usually "neutral" is the way an analyst can say sell but in a non offending way.  Hence last evening's downgrade of Sina (SINA) by Goldman Sachs to sell is quite interesting. ...

4/19/11RenRen (RENN) Set to IPO May 4th, Valuation Causes Another Surge in Sina (SINA) (Fund my Mutual Fund)

Yesterday was another blockbuster day for Sina (SINA) as it elevated into the stratosphere despite a bad day in the market. Apparently the filing for "Chinese Facebook" RenRen (RENN) and the proposed valuation of its 30M+ 'active users' lend to the original these we laid out many months out that the "Twitter" portion of Sina (Weibo) is being undervalued.  That said, with some nonsensical valuations in things like "Chinese YouTube" (YOKU) we are seeing the same game that was being...

4/14/11[Video] Cramer Jumps on the Sina (SINA) Bandwagon and Advises to Play the Social Media Bubble (Fund my Mutual Fund)

I believe what is currently happening in the social media space is akin to the internet bubble in 1999.  Bubbles are always based on an underlying truth (i.e. "the internet will change the world") - and a subset of companies will have their valuation taken to the moon, until one day reality sets in.  That reality could be in 9 months or 3 years - who knows.   All we do know now is the valuation of the Twitter's, Groupon's and Facebook's of the world seemingly increase by 20% a month in...

4/11/11Reported Deal Between Facebook and Baidu (BIDU) to Create Social Networking Site, Pressures Sina.... (Fund my Mutual Fund)

Sina.com (SINA) is showing the first weakness in a while, on reports Facebook is entering China via a partnership with Baidu (BIDU).   That said, after the initial (over)reaction which shaved about 7 points off the name, the stock has bounced back well in the afternoon. The hit to Sina seems wrong for a few reasons - first there are already a handful of very significant social networking sites in China, 2 of which are expected to go public in the US this year - and whose IPOs I expect...

4/4/11Consider Taking Some Profits in Sina (SINA) (Fund my Mutual Fund)

If you are an active trader, and came into Sina (SINA) sometime during my 'pounding the table' phase on the name, I'd consider taking some off the table to lock in profits (and try to buy back later) as the name is beginning to go parabolic.  I tend to get antsy when stocks start to break away from their 10 day moving average like this, but I am relatively conservative in my trading style. I am not implying the run is over, as we are officially in "lemming mode" now as people pile in with no...
