Bilibili (NASDAQ:BILI) is anything but a household name in this half of the world, having only been a publicly traded entity for a little over a year, and only doing business in China. But, BILI stock may well be a pick North American investors would be wise to add to their portfolios. It's a growth machine like no other, striking a chord with a Chinese demographic that's proven tough to excite.Perhaps more important to current and prospective shareholders, analysts believe Bilibili is setting up to swing to a profit next year. And, given its habit of over delivering, that could happen even sooner than expected.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIn that light, the modest weakness BILI stock has suffered since early March -- down 7.6% vs. a 3% gain in the Nasdaq Composite index -- may be a buying opportunity ahead of the earnings report on tap for May 13. Biliwhat?Bilibili is … difficult to explain to adults. But, China's teens know it well. Bilibili is an entertainment website that lets users post messages about brief videos -- including videos they've uploaded -- in real time, effectively captioning those videos in real time. It's more than a Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), and not quite a YouTube. It's closer to a Weibo (NASDAQ:WB), but focused on the anime and comics young people love. * 7 Energy Stocks to Buy to Light Up Your Portfolio Oh yeah, video games. Bilibili offers access to a variety of mobile games.Tong Chen, managing director of Beijing investment firm IDG Capital -- which has a position in BILI stock -- explains "In China, there isn't any similar platform of this scale, and it is keeping users highly engaged."The appeal is challenging to pin down nonetheless. School-aged children, who make up more than 80% if Bililbili's user base, live in their own secretive subculture. Given last quarter's 29% increase in total monthly users and 37% growth in monthly mobile users, however, it's clear that fickle teenagers are enjoying what they're getting even if they themselves can't define why its typical user is spending more than an hour per day at the site.Like Twitter's early days, and Weibo's, and Facebook's, Bilibili hasn't cared that it's in the red. Recently ramped-up efforts to push paid memberships appears to be paying off though, putting actual profits in sight. Fiscal Turning PointWith just a quick glance, it would appear the company's losses are growing as Bilibili beefs up its top line. And technically speaking, they are. For the quarter currently underway, BILI stock's per-share losses are expected to swell from the penny per share it lost a year earlier to a dime now. For the current year, analysts are modeling a loss of 33 cents per share, versus a loss of 27 cents per share of Bilibili stock booked last year despite 2019's forecast 55% revenue growth.This year should mark a turning point for the company's financials however. Next year, driven by a projected 45% increase in its top line, analysts are calling for a net profit of six cents per share. The year after that should deliver comparably-big earnings progress.Paid memberships have proven a surprisingly potent piece of that growth.The idea has been broached by the likes of Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) in the past, with mixed responses from users. Kids don't have the same principles-based hang-ups, though. The number of paying users as of the end of last year was a healthy 4.4 million.For users that aren't paying anything, they're still monetized via advertising. Ad revenue quadrupled last quarter, and while still a small piece of the revenue pie, Bilibili continues to refine the art and science of leveraging its brand in the tricky teen market. * 7 Strong Buy Stocks That Tick All the Boxes The anticipated swing to a profit next year isn't just wishful thinking. Bottom Line for BILI StockIt's still not a holding for the faint of heart, or grandma's portfolio. Aside from doing business in China behind a somewhat opaque wall, Bilibili operates in a fast-changing arena and caters to the most fickle of consumers.Still, the story works more than well enough for the time being. It's difficult for a would-be rival to replicate what can't be defined, and much like Facebook before Facebook become overwhelmingly inclusive, the Bilibili platform is sticky because of the participants who are already there. Teens are unlikely to leave a well-populated group for a less-populated rival's.The next chapter of the story begins on Monday, with Bilibili's first quarter numbers on tap. Analysts are calling for a loss of 11 cents per share on revenue of $188.3 million, down from the loss of 14 cents per share of BILI stock booked in the same quarter a year earlier.As has been the case for a while, the rhetoric is likely to mean more than the numbers.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

SHANGHAI, China, April 25, 2019 -- Bilibili Inc. (“Bilibili” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BILI), a leading online entertainment platform for young generations in China, today.
Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) stock has rewarded shareholders handsomely so far in 2019. Alibaba was founded in Apr 1999 and had its IPO in Sept 2014 -- at an initial price of $92.7. On Apr. 15, the stock price closed at $183.07. In the past two decades, BABA has become a highly regarded global company, and Alibaba stock offers U.S. investors the chance to invest in the growing Chinese consumer and e-commerce markets. As its second decade ends, the group is increasingly focusing on becoming a social hub.Source: Shutterstock Although there might be volatility in BABA shares in the coming weeks as the global e-commerce platform gets ready to report earnings in early May, long-term investors may regard any upcoming dip in the stock price as an opportunity to buy into the shares. Here is why: Alibaba Stock Has Robust FundamentalsOnline shopping represents about 35% of China's total $5.5 trillion retail market -- and BABA has a 53.3% share. Alibaba's Tmall and Taobao are China's largest online business-to-consumer and consumer-to-consumer marketplaces respectively. One highlight from the company's past quarter is that its mobile monthly active users (MAUs) on the e-commerce platforms have now reached 699 million.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks to Buy for Spring Season Growth For example, with the successful Taobao app, users share product reviews, watch webisodes, or live-stream various tutorial. As the time spent on the app increases, so does the money spent on the e-commerce marketplace.As Alibaba gets ready to release its quarterly results in early May, investors who are seeking capital appreciation should keep in mind the company's dominant position in the Chinese e-commerce space. In its earnings report, investors should pay attention to four areas of revenue: * Core commerce (its largest segment which showed 40% year-over-year, YOY, growth); * Cloud computing (which showed 84% YOY growth); * Digital media and entertainment (which showed 20% YOY growth); and * Innovation initiatives (which showed 73% YOY growth).The company's latest quarterly earnings on Jan 30 showed that BABA's gross profit margin is over 45%. Many analysts expect its revenue to continue growing at double-digit-percentage rates, at an average of 20% annually, through both organic growth and acquisitions.It is also important to note that much of its recent growth has been coming from less populated areas of China. At present, around half of China's 1.4 billion citizens reside in rural areas and reaching out to these consumers has become a top priority for Alibaba.The fact that the company is not highly leveraged also contributes to my upbeat view of Alibaba's management and balance sheet. Its 'current ratio', which measures BABA's ability to pay its short-term debt, stands at a healthy 1.25.Although the Chinese economy may slow further in 2019 or even 2020, its GDP is still expanding at an average annual rate of 6% minimum. In other words, China's growing middle class will continue to drive increases in the country's consumer spending and in China's e-commerce market. And when average Chinese citizens have more money in their pockets, more of it can be spent on online shopping sites like Alibaba. Alibaba Is Diversifying in ChinaBABA's core business of online retail contributes to 88% of revenue. However, it's been branching out into other business ventures. This expansion is made possibly partly due to its steady free cash flow (FCF), which measures a company's ability to produce cash. Investors care a lot about FCF as it can be used in a discretionary manner, for example, to invest in growth opportunities and to strengthen Alibaba's balance sheet further.The e-commerce giant now has multiple equity stakes in growth companies in a plethora of industries, such as Ant Financial, the Chinese payments giant; Ele.me, the local delivery company; and Alibaba Cloud, its cloud computing arm. The rapidly growing cloud business, which has brought in about 6% of total revenues in Q4 2018, has long-term growth potential and may help improve the company's margins further.Like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Alibaba is also paying considerable attention to developments in cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI), two areas that will contribute to its bottom line and possibly boost BABA stock in coming years. The company announced that it is building its own AI chip to be used in various industries, such as self-driving cars.In its efforts to become a hybrid e-commerce platform that offers social shopping experiences to customers, especially to the tech-savvy youth, Alibaba has been increasing its exposure to social media platforms. For example, it owns 31% of Weibo (NASDAQ:WB), the Chinese microblogging company.Alibaba's Taobao marketplace has recently taken an 8% stake in Chinese anime streaming and entertainment company Bilibili (NASDAQ:BILI) whose users have an average age of 21. The company, which has about 92 million monthly active users, "covers genres and media formats, including videos, live broadcasting, and mobile games." Through this acquisition, Alibaba opens the door to reaching the Gen Z market in China better.BABA's Youku is now the third biggest video streamer in China, behind Tencent Holdings (OTCMKTS:TCEHY) and Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU). And Alibaba is not shy to invest in the platform to create new content and bring in new subscribers so that it can increase its 22% share in the Chinese video streaming market.Finally, as China increasingly moves into a cashless society, the group's mobile platform, Alipay, is likely to grow exponentially. The digital wallet has already hit 1 billion users in more than 110 countries worldwide. In other words, investors are hopeful that these new ventures will become significant revenue contributors soon. BABA's International Growth Looks PromisingIn addition to its ever-growing presence in China, BABA has investments in start-ups in South Asia and Southeast Asia, too. Southeast Asia is en route to becoming the world's fourth largest economic region by GDP and analysts expect its e-commerce sector to expand tremendously within the next decade.Among the start-ups in those regions in which BABA has stakes are Paytm, an Indian digital-payments provider, and Lazada, a Singapore-based e-commerce company that is growing in overseas markets.The "Amazon of the East" has also set its eyes on moving west through partnerships with European companies, including Vodafone Group (NASDAQ:VOD) in Germany and El Corte Ingles in Spain. Many European companies are still discovering new ways to enter the Chinese market, and BABA may enable them to connect with Chinese customers faster. BABA's mobile payment network, Alipay, is also looking to expand in Europe.Such international growth will not only help increase the company's bottom line, but it will also enable BABA to diversify away from China, lowering the macro risk facing BABA stock. Is It Time to Invest in BABA Stock?The answer depends on your investment style and horizon, i.e., whether you are a short-term trader or a long-term-growth investor. BABA stock is a compelling long-term investment. I also believe that most of the adverse effects of the U.S.-China trade war have already been priced into Alibaba stock. If the two sides reach a deal that's seen in a positive light this year, BABA stock is likely to rally.Yet, the markets are likely to continue to be choppy in April and May, especially since many other tech heavyweights are expected to release their quarterly reports. The volatility of Alibaba stock is high, giving it a broad trading range, so short-term traders should proceed with caution in the coming weeks.As a result of the recent impressive run-up in the stock price, short-term technical indicators have become somewhat over-extended. Investors who pay attention to short-term oscillators should note that BABA's professional message has also become "overbought." So, in the next few weeks, there might be some profit taking in Alibaba stock. The Bottom Line on Alibaba StockAlibaba's growth in e-commerce, cloud computing, and other investments throughout China and globally make it a disruptor and a sound and long-term investment. 2019 has given Wall Street a glimpse of how great BABA's comeback could be as, year-to-date, the stock is up 33%.Therefore long-term investors could view any decline in the BABA stock price as an opportunity to buy the stock. By the end of 2020, I expect the stock to reach $230. * 10 S&P 500 Stocks to Weather the Earnings Storm However, traders with a short-term horizon should remember that there might be some profit-taking in the stock around the earnings report.As of this writing, Tezcan Gecgil did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
