    I don't make investment decisions based on suggestions of some message board poster. I seek actionable information - that some posters seem to post - but 99.9% are a waste of time!

    my buy price was at around $47. If it hits that before august 14 earnings, I believe it would be a good opportunity to buy.
    Of course, I have no clue as to whether sina's earnings would be good, bad or ugly.

    Wall st has enough leaks of its own, where inside information is probably traded upon.
    I can't imagine that impending positive results would not have leaked out already..
    It is almost impossible for sec to catch chinese people trading a chinese stock like sina, with insider info.
    I would be surprised, if they are not! Enough of our people do it here, despite the substantially higher risk here.

    My only regret is that this stock went up today already.. I was hoping to add to it this morning!

    i am questioning the timing of this downgrade

    I won't tell you it is a coincidence. There is no such thing as a coincidence, in the market.
    TH capital is an unknown entity. Owner seems to be chinese.
    If sina disappoints on 14th, he will look like a hero. If not, no one would remember him.

    If he was sure it would fall, he could have taken a short position and disclosed it accordingly.

    Bottom line, it is a non event.. It is not exactly a goldmach sachs downgrade..

    I would guess that the high call volume as compared to minimal put volume could possibly mean that there is a potential upside before 3rd Fri in June.. The disparity of the volume between $50 Calls Vs $47.50 puts is a very siginificant indicator of the potential upside. Typically, those with "possible" inside type information would buy short term calls to capture the upswing. Considering Sina being a chinese company, I would suspect that it would be much harder for SEC to nail the perpetrators. That might be the reason for such an obvious call purchase. I hold July calls and I have no inside knowledge.. I am hoping that, since the calls you mention of june calls, I am in luck! lol.

    I don't know whether the valuation should be $75+ or not.. I am not an expert on this subject and Sina..
    but having read the quarterly report, I saw more positives than negatives.. Their upcoming hong kong ipo of (forgot the name)... etc..

    Also, how much did sina invest in alibaba - if any?

    I get feeling that sina knows how to invest right into upcoming companies? Am I wrong?

    I am thinking buying more into Sina.. especially with $500 million share repurchase program..
    What am I missing? Why did this fall so badly, yesterday? I realize that there was a miss of analyst expectation.. but the report seemed to be more positive than negative. I read it and didn't hear it.. someone wrote that CEO sounded nervous.. Some times, with eastern cultures.. being polite might sound for westerners, as being nervous - especially, if they are simply stating the truth and not trying to "fluff it up".
