Qihoo 360 Technology Co. Ltd. Message Board

    Happy Easter.... or

    Happy Easter.... or, whatever it is each of you call it!

    Looking forward to the weeks ahead with our QIHU.

    This week was a good break and healthy.

    Needs to start to form measurable plots on it's chart in the interest of support and resistance if we'll be able to properly analyze it's technicals with any conviction...

    Although it was fun reading some of the posts, especially by "new posters", who chimed in every 5 minutes to give their predictions... and how much of a P.O.S. this company is.

    Everyone is entitled I guess. Just hope the board tilts more toward sharing of information and constructive comments rather than racial, political, or personal attacks, etc. as the evolution of QIHU plays out.

    Ok, have a great weekend everyone!

      • Good Morning HEHATES,

        Thanks for your comments on SPRD. SPRD is a name, as I've said, I like Long-Term, but the risk/reward surrounding Earnings is the wild card, so hard telling where it goes.

        Out of the three other stock you've mentioned, I think they all, like some other Internet/Software names, are a bit extended, imo. I don't have a whole lot to offer, in terms of an opinion, other than... I think they all are good trading stocks. I believe in MOBI Long-Term... it's a name that I have been in and out of since the high-5's... obviously it would have been a good buy & hold from that level. REDF & SIFY have potential to be long-term holdings, depending on how they execute. I have been trading them for a while but have missed the latest pops on them for fear they needed to "correct" a bit. They ALL pop up on Harry Boxer's Charts where he offers his short-term, intermediate, and/or long-term analysis. HB would probably be a better proxy for ALL the names than I, but wanted to at least give my thoughts to you.

        Hope it helps!

    • Oh, forgot to mention...

      SOHU and CYOU earnings are tomorrow before the open.

      Also, as I'm sure you are aware, BIDU on Wednesday.

      May be other Chinese Software or Internet stocks reporting, but these are the ones that are on my radar.

      For what it's worth...

    • I forgot my old log on so I created another one. I learned a lesson which quite frankly I already knew. I was in a haste but I do not call a mistake a mistake unless I do it twice.

      As I told Chicago a trader & portfolio manager once told me "Never think your smarter than you really are" and that was something I always remembered.

      Appreciate the advice , I will wait on RENN I wanted to buy some SINA awhile ago but not now at the current levels. When GS downgraded them last week it crushed the stock.

      Hey I got hop big family day tomorrow. Enjoy your Sunday talk to you Monday.

      Thanks again for your advice.

    • Hey Chicago what is your take on this?

      I have cut and pasted the part that only pertains to Qihoo under the link that you see below. If you want to read about all three stocks that they mention just click on the link below.

      Browsing for a better deal
      How do you monetize something free? China's newly public Qihoo 360 Technology gives away its Internet browser, but apparently makes quite a bit of cash from advertising, as well as adjunct offerings such as antivirus software, online games, and other Web-related services. Revenue soared 79% last year, no doubt resulting from Qihoo's better-than-85% Chinese user penetration rate. It's the second most popular browser behind Internet Explorer.

      We can probably expect Microsoft's lead to evaporate soon enough. Just as Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU) has gargantuan share over Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) in Chinese search, it's likely that local users will assert a parochial preference for a Chinese browser company. The situations aren't completely analogous, since browsers themselves don't have to address the censorship issues that plagued Google in China, but the home-field advantage likely means something.

      Qihoo's IPO last week was priced at $14 a share, but the stock opened at $27 and closed the day at $34. It sure seems like the company's underwriters left a lot of money on the table for Qihoo.

      Though Qihoo just went public, it has already attracted picks from more than 50 CAPS members, underscoring how popular Chinese investments remain, despite numerous accounts of deceptive stocks in other segments of the country's market. With 18% of CAPS members who've rated the browser company expecting it to underperform the market, our community's at least showing some degree of caution, though its hesitation is probably related to valuation at the moment.

      Browse the Qihoo 360 Technology CAPS page and let us know whether you think if, at a market cap of $3.8 billion, it's really worth the price.

      • Chicago must be on holiday....lucky fella.This article translated from Mandarin might help...
        China’s Qihoo 360 Technology Co. Ltd. (QIHU) is not just your regular Internet security company. It’s greatest strength doesn’t even necessarily include its strong anti-virus technology. What best highlights 360’s superiority over other Internet security companies is its innovative service which converts website traffic into revenue. This product is called 360 Safe Browser and can currently be regarded as the only web browser in the world where the main focus is on Internet security.

        Internet users are still in need of services that can protect their computers from viruses, malware and protection of privacy. Even if Qihoo 360 provides a free security service, it will not eliminate the need for network security or reduce the number of security threats online.
        Essentially, 360 is not just an Internet security product manufacturer. Its biggest advantage is not only its powerful anti-virus technology seeing as how the company leases its anti-virus engine. Objectively, 360 is a very strong tool-like client end software supplier. It bases on 360 Security Guard and constructs a rich product chain that helps its products support each other. As a matter of fact, without 360’s free anti-virus software, user base of 360 product suite would already be big enough. The existence of 360’s free anti-virus software serves more to justify 360’s legitimacy of being a “security product manufacturer.”

    • Amen to that. Happy Easter to you too.

    • Not sure if you own BIDU but there were several HUGE purchases in the after hours market. This might effect other Chinese internet plays and that could mean that BIDU has a deal with another firm i.e. Facebook. That deal was written about then denied by several news outlets.

    • Well said Chicago

      Will keep an out for an articles that pertain to QIHU.

      Enjoy the holiday

    • glad 2 c u show up 2day good w/e 2you.
