Dow hiccups at 17,000 http://www.chinavestor.com/newsletter/74866-dow-hiccups-at-17000.html http://www.chinavestor.com/newsletter/74866-dow-hiccups-at-17000.html advance3 November 10, 2014 (Chinavestor) This is a 3 month delay release of our monthly Newsletters.

We argued in the latest Newsletter that we didn’t see a reason to alter an overall bullish sentiment for the rest of the summer. We continue to believe in an overall positive market sentiment for August and the fall for the same reason as before. There is not any major development on the horizon that would stop overall bullish momentum. There are going to be hiccups on the way, no doubt about that. Such derailment was evident in the last week of July when the Dow recorded the biggest weekly loss since January. But the overall trend is expected to be modestly bullish due to prolonged low interest rates and lack of major policy change from the FED.

Sky-Mobi Part 3 - Ace up the Sleeve http://www.chinavestor.com/internet/74865-sky-mobi-part-3-ace-up-the-sleeve.html http://www.chinavestor.com/internet/74865-sky-mobi-part-3-ace-up-the-sleeve.html insurance October 23, 2014 (Chinavestor) ROE exhibits quite disastrous figures and the lack of featurephone use is noticeably harming MOBI’s operating power. So how can there be an upside for investors to allocate funds to? Whilst AAPL’s and Samsung’s mobile devices are what we called premium, high end devices, MOBI aims to serve the cheaper mobile phones. There are a large number of producers in China with a primary purpose of creating cheap smartphones. Developed economies may be unfamiliar to the concept as once Christmas pops round the corner, if a mobile phone is on the wish list, it will most likely be an iPhone of Galaxy. MOBI has many contracts with these cheaper alternative producers, which we believe may provide the pedestal for this ADR to enter smartphone sweepstakes. Considering that MOBI is a small-cap stock that dominated a game that saw BIDU, Qihoo 360 (NYSE: QIHU) and Tencent (HKG: 0700) all playing catch up, MOBI’s new tactics will certainly put fear in the boardroom of these three sharks. ]]> site@chinavestor.com (Sandun Munasinghe) frontpage Thu, 23 Oct 2014 15:42:49 +0000 Sky Mobi - Part 2 http://www.chinavestor.com/knowledge-base/adr-market/74864-sky-mobi-part-2.html http://www.chinavestor.com/knowledge-base/adr-market/74864-sky-mobi-part-2.html telephone1 October 20, 2014 (Chinavestor) This is the second part of a Sky-Mobi analysis.

Smartphones Now Pack the Features

Though this stock has the lion’s share of China’s app market, it is noticeable that revenues are dwindling. We mentioned in the previous article how a lot of business models will operate one way but may be subject to an equal reaction in the opposite way. In this case, just as feature phones acted as the impetus for mobile communication, their mobile revolution would help invent the better functioning smartphones we see today. ]]> site@chinavestor.com (Sandun Munasinghe) frontpage Mon, 20 Oct 2014 10:26:42 +0000 BIDU, NTES defy markets http://www.chinavestor.com/knowledge-base/adr-market/74863-bidu-ntes-defy-markets.html http://www.chinavestor.com/knowledge-base/adr-market/74863-bidu-ntes-defy-markets.html advance4 October 16, 2014 (Chinavestor) Big reversal day on Wednesday. The Dow plunged 460 plus points before heading back north, slipping 173 points lower for the day. Investors may think such a day is disastrous for US listed Chinese stocks. Think twice. Baidu Inc. (NYSE:BIDU) actually advance $6.66 or 3.35%. And the list goes on.

On the top of your head, if you were asked ‘What is the most popular app store around?’ you would probably say Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) App store, right? An android user may opt to point out that Google Play offers more versatility; however, it was Apple’s platform which paved the way for mobile phones to considered to be a life ‘tool’ rather than a simple communication device. The California based ‘institution’ has garnered over 500 million App Store account users. Considering that the population of the United States is just under 320 million, we can safely say this product is global. Is global always better though? Businesses suffer, strive and bleed to get their product to go global, with the belief that once you are, the chances of going back down the business life cycle are slim. Even, Apple, who already has a pretty strong customer base internationally, released a low-grade version of their iPhone 5, dubbed the iPhone 5c, to break into the emerging economies. ]]> site@chinavestor.com (Sandun Munasinghe) frontpage Wed, 15 Oct 2014 18:10:14 +0000 Alibaba IPO in NY.

Given that Hong Kong is the second "home market" for Chinese stocks, the HKEx was also a possibility. Still, Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) came to New York for listing.
