SHANGHAI, China, Aug. 12, 2019 -- Bilibili Inc. (“Bilibili” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BILI), a leading online entertainment platform for young generations in China, today.
Bilibili Inc. (“Bilibili” or the “Company”) (BILI), a leading online entertainment platform for young generations in China, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire a majority stake in Chaodian Inc. (“Chaodian”), through the injection of capital and the acquisition of equity interests from non-affiliated existing shareholders. It also operates an industry-related talent agency representing hundreds of artists and entertainment professionals, many of which are Bilibili’s top content creators. Mr. Rui Chen, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Bilibili, commented, “Our alignment with Chaodian broadens our reach beyond our core online platform and progresses our commercialization efforts.
(Bloomberg) -- China’s largest technology companies are gunning for YouTube’s biggest stars.The Qingteng Club, a group affiliated with social media and gaming giant Tencent Holdings Ltd., will host executives and celebrities from the Chinese and U.S. online video industries at a private event in California this week, according to attendees. The event, dubbed the East-West Forum, will take place at an Anaheim hotel down the street from VidCon, a convention for fans of online influencers.Tencent, owner of the all-purpose Chinese app WeChat, is trying to encourage more U.S. social-media stars to do business in the world’s No. 2 economy. The opening panel of the event is titled “How Tencent could help your influencers’ businesses in China.” They have an edge over YouTube in tapping the burgeoning market: The Google-owned video service is blocked in the country.The resurgent interest in American content coincides with a period of intense competition in the world’s largest online arena. The popularity of Douyin, China’s equivalent of TikTok, has shaken China’s technology industry, and companies like e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., search leader Baidu Inc. and Tencent have been forced to defend their turf.Tencent, whose WeChat messaging service is used by a billion-plus people, has previously blocked links to Douyin. And IQiyi, a Netflix-style streaming service controlled by Baidu, is working on a competing app.“East-West Forum is an exclusive event that brings leaders in tech and entertainment industry together from east and west to meet, to learn more about each other and build potential collaborations,” according to a statement by the Mars Summit, an organization helping to host the event.Fan GatheringSome of the biggest names in Chinese social media are descending upon California this week as tensions with Washington run high over the Asian country’s technological ascendancy.Executives from TikTok, owned by Bytedance Ltd., Tencent and Baidu are all speaking on panels at this year’s VidCon, which started as an event for people who post videos on YouTube to meet with fans. Celebrities sign autographs and host panels, while executives give keynote speeches. The convention has since expanded to include online platforms such as Amazon.com Inc.’s Twitch, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.The East-West Forum will also bring together executives from Tencent, the founders of Chinese startups RED and Bilibili Inc., and online influencers Jordi and Azzy. It’s also expected to attract U.S. media executives from Fine Brothers Entertainment, which operates some of the most popular channels on YouTube.“There is a very large, very senior delegation of Chinese executives at VidCon,” said Jasper Donat, a media executive and producer based in Hong Kong. “The fact that that’s happening is pretty big. It’s been hard to get a lot of China into America in recent years, and they are here in force.”To contact the reporter on this story: Lucas Shaw in Los Angeles at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nick Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org, Edwin ChanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Smaller names continue to struggle while big names are finding enough buyers to keep the Dow green as well as the S&P 500. Next, I believe large cap will rotate into China. The mobile and live-streaming firm is potentially one of the names poised to benefit the most from the push in e-sports and digital entertainment.
Shares of Chinese technology giant Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) have struggled over the past 18 months as investors have tried to grapple with slowing growth across China's economy and rising trade tensions between the U.S. and China, which threaten to accelerate the already naturally occurring China economic slowdown. Despite those big macroeconomic risks, the Alibaba stock growth narrative has remained resilient and healthy.Source: Charles Chan Via FlickrIndeed, the company has continued to fire off big revenue growth quarter after big revenue growth quarter.As such, the bull-bear debate on BABA stock has smart people on both sides. Bulls are saying Alibaba remains a big growth company that is being unfairly knocked down by trade war risks, which the company has proven largely resilient to. Bears are saying Alibaba is a slowing growth company that will continue to slow as those trade war risks build up.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * The 7 Best Dow Jones Stocks to Buy for the Rest of 2019 I think the bulls are right on this one, for three big reasons:* Alibaba is a high-quality growth story that has enough secular growth tailwinds behind it to offset the mildly slowing economic expansion in China.* The economic slowdown in China is overstated, and China's digital economy is still rapidly expanding.* Alibaba stock is far too cheap considering its robust long term growth prospects.All in all, the bull thesis on BABA stock at this point in time looks pretty compelling. You have a high-quality growth stock, at the epicenter of a secular growth market, trading at a discounted valuation because of overstated slowdown concerns. That combination ultimately makes BABA stock look like a good buy here and now. Alibaba Stock and Quality GrowthFirst, and foremost, Alibaba is a high-quality growth story that has enough secular growth tailwinds behind it to offset the mildly slowing economic expansion in China.For all intents and purposes, Alibaba is the heartbeat of China's digital economy. The company operates the country's largest e-commerce platform, as well as the country's largest cloud business. That puts Alibaba at the intersection of two huge secular growth tailwinds - the rapid migration of commerce from the physical to digital channel, and the rapid migration of enterprise workloads from on-premise to cloud solutions.Those two secular growth tailwinds have been enough to offset the mildly slowing economic expansion in China. Although China's economy grew by just 6.6% in 2018 (the lowest rate in 28 years), Alibaba reported revenue growth last year and last quarter of over 50%. For the past several quarters, revenue growth has hovered in the 50-60% range. Thus, despite the slowing economic expansion in China, Alibaba has maintained its red hot growth trajectory.Net-net, it's safe to say that Alibaba is supported by secular tailwinds strong enough to keep this company on a winning trajectory for the foreseeable future. China's Digital Economy Is Still Rapidly ExpandingSecond, it's equally important to understand that China economic slowdown concerns are broadly overstated and that China's digital economy is still rapidly expanding.This starts with understanding that China's economy is slowing from a sky-high growth pace. China's economy did grow at its slowest pace in 28 years last year. But, the GDP growth rate was still 6.6%. The U.S. economy hasn't printed a GDP growth rate above 6% since 1984. In other words, while China's economy is slowing, it's still growing at what would be a 35-year high rate for the U.S.Further, China's digital and consumer economies still remain hugely under-penetrated relative to the digital and consumer economies of developed countries. China's GDP per capita, income per capita, and expenditures per capita are all just a fraction of what they are in developed countries like Germany, the UK, and the U.S.By a fraction, I mean 10-25%, so very small relatively speaking. Further, China's internet penetration rate is just 60%. Across North America and Europe, internet penetration rates are closing in on 90%.Broadly, then, China's digital and consumer economies remain hugely under-penetrated and have a long runway ahead to keep expanding. That's why China's ecommerce sales are expected to rise at a 15%-plus rate for the next several years. Alibaba is the heartbeat of that ecommerce market, and as such, finds itself at the epicenter of a still red-hot secular growth market. Alibaba Stock Is Too CheapThird, it's important to understand just how cheap BABA stock is relative to its long term growth potential.Alibaba is a 50%-plus revenue growth company. Across the entire China internet landscape, you'd be hard pressed to find a company that has consistently grown revenues at a 50%-plus pace for the past several quarters.The only other name that comes to mind is Bilibili (NASDAQ:BILI). The difference? Bilibili is expected to do revenues of less than $1 billion this year. Alibaba's projected sales this year measure over $70 billion.Thus, Alibaba is an unparalleled combination of big growth and big size. This big growth should persist given the company's secular growth ecommerce and cloud tailwinds. Also, Alibaba is at the epicenter of the rapidly expanding China digital economy.Margins are starting to stabilize after several quarters of compression. Big growth-related investments are fading out and paying off. This dynamic will persist. Continued big revenue growth over the next several years should be accompanied by healthy margin expansion.Net-net, I see Alibaba as a 20% revenue grower over the next several years, with profit margins that should gradually expand from today's depressed base. Ultimately, that paves a visible pathway for EPS to run towards $20 by fiscal 2026.Based on a market average 16 forward multiple, that equates to a fiscal 2025 price target for Alibaba stock of $320. Discounted back by 10% per year, that implies a fundamentally supported fiscal 2020 price target of roughly $200. Bottom Line on Alibaba StockAlibaba is a high-quality growth story at the epicenter of a secular growth market. That positioning gives the company tremendous long term profit growth potential. Alibaba stock presently trades at a discount to that big profit growth potential.The result? Big growth will eventually and inevitably converge on a discounted valuation. When it does, BABA stock will fly towards $200.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long BABA and BILI.

Bilibili (BILI) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of 46.15% and 5.68%, respectively, for the quarter ended March 2019. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?
SHANGHAI (AP) _ Bilibili Inc. (BILI) on Monday reported a loss of $27.6 million in its first quarter. For the current quarter ending in July, Bilibili said it expects revenue in the range of $214.9 million to $220.8 million. Bilibili shares have risen 11% since the beginning of the year.

Tencent's (TCEHY) Game For Peace becomes the top-grossing game on Apple's iOS app store, after players spend $14 million through in-game purchases within the first 72 hours of launch.
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.
