    10Q is out

    I read the brief 10Q using your link and didn't see that number expressly stated - did you calculate it from the statement "The companies revenues...increased by $68,741"? They seem to be indicating that their only significant income is the $2.5 million that Disney gives them each year. But isn't that Indian cartoon network paying them anything for "Chakra"? They "currently have over 20 projects 'in development'" but...well, that's a pretty honest warning. I know I'm rolling the dice on this one. Hang in there Stan.

  • VIPS Q1 2014 - 7.4 million active customers (just reported)
    DANG Q4 2013 - 8.9 million active customers
    In the morning we find out if DANG broke the 10 million mark Q1 - if their customers bought some bigger ticket items in addition to books AND if DANG spent less expanding warehouses and distribution network EPS could be shocking.

    DANG should report at least 10 Million Active Customers for Q1 (8,9 million Q4) and if they all ordered something in addition to books this time around we may be looking at some impressive revenue (up from 326 million Q4) AND if DANG spent less on warehouses and their distribution network then profit (3.6 million, 0.04 EPS Q4) might actually be impressive enough to chase shorts away and start drawing in some long investors. Thursday could be the beginning of the Big Turnaround and that delicious 20 times pps that VIPS demonstrated last year that DANG missed out on. 200 bucks a share by next Spring Bang Zoom Cha Cha Cha and how do you do today sir.

    Q4 2013:
    Revenue - Alibaba $3.06 billion, VIPS $651 million, DANG $326 million
    Net Income - Alibaba $1.36 billion, VIPS $25.4 million, $3.6 million
    EPS - VIPS $0.49, DANG $0.04
    Active Customers - VIPS 5.7 million, DANG 8.9 million
    Orders - VIPS 17.7 million, DANG 18.1 million
    I'd like to believe reports that DANG spent a lot of years and cash building warehouses and a solid distribution network and is now ready to profit. Guess we'll have some indication a week from tomorrow.
    Hope the rest of the year is interesting in a good way.

    While we're waiting for Dang Dang's next report, here's a reminder of the last set of quarterly results that carried DANG and VIPS up to peaks (19 and 182) that have since dropped around 40 and 30 percent, respectively, in just a couple of months on essentially no news (aside from DANG losing/defenestrating another CFO):
    Revenue: DANG 326 million, VIPS 651 million
    Guidance for Q1: DANG 283 million, VIPS 645 million
    Earnings per Share (EPS): DANG 0.04, VIPS 0.49
    Active Customers: DANG 8.9 million, VIPS 5.7 million
    Total Orders: DANG 18.1 million, VIPS 17.7 million
    Gross Margin: DANG 17.6%, VIPS 24.5%
    Will next earnings reports restore DANG and VIPS to 19 and 182?
    Can DANG figure out how to get its active customers to place more orders and spend more per order? They had 56% more "active customers" than VIPS but only about the same number of orders and only half the revenue. Lots of people coming to the site and placing orders, just gotta get 'em to buy some big ticket items along with their books.

    Using today's numbers (DANG ~11, VIPS ~130) DANG (only one profitable quarter in recent years) is down about 40% from its recent peak of 19.05, while even VIPS (consistently profitable) is still down about 30% from its peak of 182. Hoping to see a resurgence in pps of Chinese e-commerce companies (esp. DANG) after next earnings reports and hysteria over Alibaba IPO.

    VIPS keeping pace down the ladder with DANG today, both 8 percent ish off at the moment. Better days coming. DANG management is comfortable letting results do the talking for the company, though I too would prefer they beef up their PR department and release an occasional fluff piece to keep the pps up between earnings announcements. But we both know this is a long term winner, so hang in.
