Since the start of the year, China's iQIYI (NASDAQ:IQ) stock has been on a tear. A Chinese internet vide company, iQIYI was spun off from Chinese search engine Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU).IQ stock, which sold for under $15 at the start of January, was trading for $26 this afternoon. (IQ stock had briefly topped $43 after its April 2018 IPO.) But the recent rally of IQ stock price is the kind of run-up that justifies the faith of bulls in what has been called the "Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) of China."Those who are considering buying or selling IQ stock must determine if the rally of iQiyi stock was triggered by the passion of the market, or if the company itself is outperforming.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Stocks on the Rise Heading Into the Second Quarter What Is iQIYI?As I wrote in August, IQ is nothing like Netflix. China's streaming market is far more competitive than that of the U.S. Units of Tencent Holding (OTCMKTS:TCEHY) and Alibaba Group Holding (NASDAQ:BABA) have also entered the market. Both have more capital behind them than Baidu could muster, which is why IQ stock was spun off.In some ways, China's internet video market is more advanced than America's. More of China's internet videos are viewed on mobile devices. The business models of the company's streaming companies are sophisticated.iQIYI's revenue mix is a cross between Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) YouTube, Netflix, and the Valve service from Stream. Founder Tim Gong said before the IPO of IQ stock that 40% of its revenue came from advertising, 33% from subscribers and the remainder from games. IQ has a licensing agreement for Netflix content, but its own shows generate most of its revenue.IQiyi skews young. It's aimed at the generation of consumers Americans call millennials, the "Little Emperors" who have known nothing but capitalism and have grown up in one-child households. Gong says the company further monetizes its audience by selling merchandise. How Is IQ Doing?IQiyi's fourth-quarter earnings , released in February, showed growth of 55% year-over-year. But that was from a relatively small base. Its total revenue for the quarter came in at $1 billion, with an operating loss of $483 million. The company's losses are increasing as it adds new types of content, including robot fights and dance contests.U.S. analysts swooned over these numbers, which showed a narrower loss than anticipated, and almost $28 million more revenue. than analysts, on average, had expected They noted that it had 87.4 million subscribers, almost all of them paid, while its membership revenue had jumped 66% YoY, The Bottom Line on IQ StockiQIYI's total 2018 revenue came to $3.6 billion, narrowly divided between subscriptions and advertising,As of this afternoon, IQ stock had a market cap of nearly $19 billion, meaning investors today are paying nearly six times revenue for iQIYI stock. They're expecting another year like 2018, and the company is investing at a rate that indicates that it expects its growth to continue at the same pace, too.Assuming China's economy doesn't turn sour, that's possible. China had almost 130 million people who were 25-29 years old in 2016, and another 100 million who were 20-24. That is the heart of IQiyi's market. But births have been slowing for two decades, and there is a surplus of young men,.As fast as China has been changing this century, it's going to change faster in the next decade. When you buy IQ stock today, you're betting its site can change with it.Dana Blankenhorn http://www.danablankenhorn.com is a financial and technology journalist.

News surfaced Mar. 20 that Foxconn Ventures sold 2.2 million shares of Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) at an average price of $181.10 a share. Is the $400-million sale of BABA stock a sign that now is an excellent time to sell your shares in the Chinese ecommerce company?Source: Charles Chan Via FlickrUp 33% year to date through Mar. 19, momentum investors will likely ride BABA stock a little longer. More conservative investors will like probably take this as a signal to exit their positions. Who's right?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Stocks on the Rise Heading Into the Second Quarter Ride the WaveWhen it comes to BABA, I'm generally a fan. In November, I recommended Alibaba along with six other Chinese stocks to buy that were down but not out. It's up 21% since then, but nowhere near its 52-week high of $211.70, hit last June. Although China's economy was starting to show cracks at the time, I concluded that it was too big a company to continue to trade at such levels. I was right about that. The question is, why was I right? What's happened with Alibaba specifically, or China more generally, that's got investors less concerned about the micro- and macro-economic picture?On the company front, Alibaba delivered third-quarter earnings at the end of January that were generally very good with adjusted earnings per share of $1.77, ten cents higher than analyst expectations, with year-over-year revenue growth of 41% despite a countrywide slowdown in online sales. Although the company's revenue didn't grow by nearly as much as in the previous two quarters (65% growth in Q2 2019 and 76% growth in Q1 2019) investors have pushed its stock higher recognizing that it's still the biggest player in Chinese ecommerce. "We expect continued solid China ecommerce growth with Alibaba as the biggest winner," Raymond James analyst Aaron Kessler, who has a strong buy on BABA stock, wrote at the time in a note to clients. Sure, you can nitpick about Alibaba's third quarter, but from where I sit, the fact that the company generated $13.6 billion in free cash flow in the first nine months of fiscal 2019, a 3% increase over a year earlier, suggests that it's still mighty profitable despite the slower revenue growth.Should a trade deal get done between China and the U.S., I could see that growth moving higher for a long time to come. It's Time to Take ProfitsThis is where things get a little dicey. There are two sayings we can look to for advice. The first is, "Never sneeze at a profit." The second is "Cut your losses short and let your winners run."If you bought in November, I could see you going with the latter. However, if you purchased Alibaba IPO shares in September 2014 at $68, a 166% gain over 54 months (24% annualized) is a very nice return for even the most successful investor. That's especially true when you consider the negatives of Alibaba's business. * 7 2018 Tax Changes Affecting Your Returns and Refunds One area that investors look to for significant growth is the company's cloud segment. In early 2018, I suggested that the company's cloud business was one of three things it needed to focus on for BABA stock to get to $400. I still feel this way. However, as InvestorPlace contributor Rohit Chhatwal recently stated, the Huawei fiasco has all sorts of developed countries questioning the presence of Chinese companies involved with technology that reaches into the security infrastructure. It's one thing for an ecommerce company from China soliciting business from American consumers. It's another thing to be using the cloud to spy on those same consumers. My colleague is right to question the future robustness of its non-domestic cloud business. Until the entire Huawei situation gets settled, large companies in North America and Europe are not going to entertain Alibaba's services without some serious discount. Is it enough to derail Alibaba stock? We'll find out soon enough. What Would I Do?When making any investment, I always consider the probabilities. The probability that Alibaba will continue to grow its ecommerce business is reasonable. The likelihood that Alibaba's cloud business won't be able to make inroads outside China is low. The probability that Alibaba will face some severe headwinds when it comes to cloud security is high. Is it enough to keep BABA stock from going any higher than $180?I don't think so. But don't expect a straight shot to $400. There will be lots of ups and downs as it elbows its way into the cloud. At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
