Chinese equities have been back in favor as the trade-war rhetoric between the U.S. and China continues to improve. While Huya (NYSE:HUYA) has been enjoying a rebound, it's not climbing as much as its peers. As Huya stock rallies into the end of the year, should investors buy the shares before it's too late?Source: Shutterstock Look at the one- and three-month returns for a handful of Chinese equities in the table below. It's pretty clear that Huya stock is continuing to struggle, even after its latest rebound. Worse, the stock's technicals do not favor the bulls at the moment, unless it suddenly gets a large burst of momentum that will send it over its resistance.Stock 1M Return 3M Return (NYSE:BABA) 14.6% 20.8% IQ 15.7% 17.6% (NASDAQ:JD) 13.3% 19.5% BILI 11.2% 22.3% (NASDAQ:BIDU) 9% 25.3% (NASDAQ:YY) (8.7%) (10.6%) HUYA (18%) (34.2%) As you can see, this stock has been displaying relative weakness at a time when its peers, Chinese stocks, and the overall markets are rallying. That's worrisome for the owners of Huya stock. Given the price action, it's hard to get overly bullish on the name. Let's look at the charts, which also aren't too encouraging.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Trading Huya Stock Click to Enlarge Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comFor much of 2019, Huya stock was trapped between range support near $19 to $19.50 and range resistance around $26. When the stock failed to overcome its resistance in November, Huya sank below all of its major moving averages. Instead of Huya Inc finding buyers at range support, though, the sellers of the shares stepped on the gas.Huya stock cascaded through the $19 to $19.50 support area and bottomed at $16.40. The stock has since found its footing around $17 and has broken through its steep downtrend resistance (depicted by the blue line). * 7 Stocks to Buy to Get 2020 Started the Right Way So now what?The charts look ever-so-slightly more constructive at the moment. A short-term bottom has been reached, while a short-term uptrend (depicted by the purple line) is in place. Further, the MACD (depicted by the blue circle) is rotating into bulls' favor as the momentum of Huya stock begins to turn more positive. That said, the sellers remain in control.Bulls' first hurdle is the 20-day moving average. If they can push HUYA through this mark, there's a much larger hurdle overhead. Prior support at $19 to $19.50 is likely to act as resistance. If that's the case, the tone will shift to a much more bearish note for Huya stock.If the bulls can reclaim the former range support, higher targets would become realistic. But before we can even begin discussing those, the following test will prove most notable. Long story short, the bears need to defend $19, turning former range support into resistance, while the bulls need to defend the $17 level and avoid making new lows. The FundamentalsHuya stock has been lagging its peers, and its technicals do not favor the bulls. Because of that, the stock should not be bought until it clears some vital levels. That said, Huya Inc is still a quality company.Analysts, on average, predict that its revenue will surge 71% this year and another 36% in 2020. Unlike some of its peers, including iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ) and BiliBili (NASDAQ:BILI), HUYA is actually profitable.Average forecasts call for earnings of 45 cents per share this year, up 50% from last year. For 2020, the mean estimate calls for an acceleration up to 75% earnings growth, good for earnings of 79 cents per share. That's lofty, but if the company can achieve it, Huya stock would currently be trading at just 22 times its forward earnings.That valuation would look cheap to many investors, given the company's strong growth and profitability, even if Huya stock is far from being a blue-chip name.Finally, its balance sheet is solid. The company's cash and short-term investments of 9.53 billion CNY easily outweigh all of its current liabilities, which stand at just 2.17 billion CNY. Further, Huya Inc does not carry any long-term debt. The Bottom Line on HuyaWhen the fundamentals and technicals do not align, some investors (like me) are in a tough spot. There is a solution, though.Technical investors can wait for the charts to confirm that bulls are back in control with a move over $19. Fundamental investors can take a long position near current levels, but use a stop-loss below the recent low of $16.40. If Huya Inc falls below that mark, it could reach the all-time low of $14.44.Investors should not get caught in a plunge. even if the company's fundamentals are good. Remember, risk can be defined and if investors sell due to a stop-loss being triggered, they can always get back in. Finally, some investors may find it best to take a partial position, while using proper risk controls on a decline and adding to the position if the technicals begin to look more favorable.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

Chinese video site Bilibili said on Friday it had agreed to a three-year contract to domestically broadcast events linked to the world's most popular desktop game League of Legends, as the esports market in China heats up. The three-year deal, which would grant Bilibili exclusive domestic broadcasting rights in China for the next three League of Legends World Championship events between 2020 and 2022, is worth 800 million yuan ($113.7 million), a company source told Reuters. Bilibili declined to comment on the price.
Bilibili (BILI) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of -15.38% and 5.03%, respectively, for the quarter ended September 2019. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?
SHANGHAI, China, Nov. 18, 2019 -- Bilibili Inc. (“Bilibili” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BILI), a leading online entertainment platform for young generations in China, today.
Third-quarter earnings for Bilibili (NASDAQ:BILI) stock will come out on Monday, Nov. 18, after the market close. The Chinese social media company launched its IPO in the spring of 2018. However, it remains mostly unknown to Americans.Source: rafapress / Shutterstock.com Still, with robust revenue growth and a large user base, Bilibili has become a name that China-focused investors should begin to watch.Consensus profit estimates point to a loss of 14 cents per share for the company's third quarter. This would come in 3 cents per share lower than the same quarter last year when BILI earnings came in at a loss of 11 cents per share.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWall Street also predicts revenues for the quarter of $248.8 million. If this holds, it will represent a 65.2% increase from year-ago levels when the company brought in $150.3 million. What Is Bilibili?However, before commenting on the financial performance, most American investors need an explanation of BILI stock itself. Bilibili is a Chinese social media company that operates as a mix of Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) YouTube and Twitter (NYSE:TWTR). Its teen demographic also resembles that of Snap (NYSE:SNAP). Users can upload videos and add subtitles that resemble tweets. * 7 Silver and Gold Stocks to Buy That Offer Contrarian Upside The Bilibili site also offers mobile gaming. Hence, one can consider it a direct peer to Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) or Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU), or, in its home country, Tencent (OTCMKTS:TCEHY). Its first quarter saw the company top 100 million monthly users for the first time.The difficulty investors will have going into earnings is whether to buy beforehand. Honestly, this decision looks like a coin toss.With the company not expected to turn a profit until 2021, investors only have revenues to evaluate the stock. Revenue growth is robust, with the amount of money brought in expected to increase by 51.6% this year and 47.2% in fiscal 2020. Also, its price-to-sales ratio stands at about 6.8. This is well above S&P 500 averages but significantly below other newly minted growth stocks.Looking at the charts, it rose in October before plateauing this month. At a BILI stock price of just over $16 per share, it trades roughly at the halfway point between its 52-week lows and highs. Keep China-Related Factors in MindThat said, investors should keep in mind two China-related factors. As most of you know, it's harder to invest in Chinese companies directly. Consequently, BILI stock is in a Cayman Islands-based holding company representing Bilibili. Hence, the market will discount it somewhat for this reason.The other China factor hinges on the trade war. Granted, BILI stock has no direct relationship to the U.S. Nonetheless, traders have a history of buying and selling other Chinese peers based on the trade war, so these U.S.-China negotiations will likely affect Bilibili stock good or bad.So, when will BILI stock become a buy? Since the decision to buy now looks like a tossup, I would wait until after earnings. However, if the report leads to a significant pullback, I see Bilibili stock as a buy on any dip. Moreover, if it rockets higher and can sustain itself above the $21.50 per share high, it could keep moving higher.Still, with the stock showing few price changes, and the fundamentals not pointing in any direction, BILI stock could go either way at current levels. The Bottom Line on BILI StockInvestors need to put BILI stock on their watch lists. However, with the stock not offering any clear direction, investors should wait until after the report to buy. Wall Street forecasts the company will post higher losses on more revenue growth. Still, longer term, analysts expect that growth to take Bilibili into profitability by 2021.For now, BILI stock posts no short-term signals to either buy or sell. It supports a P/S ratio that seems neither high nor low for a new growth equity. Moreover, it trades in the middle of its yearly range.The earnings report could make it a buy, but investors should wait until after the company's announcement to make a move. I expect BILI stock to become a long-term winner. However, as this is a new equity to most Americans, traders should focus on learning now and buying later.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

When high school student Shan Wenran signed up to join video-and-animation-sharing site Bilibili six years ago, she was surprised to find that membership entailed passing a lengthy examination. The 100-question test included zingers like who was "the lead singer of the Japanese Rainbow band" and "the starting goalkeeper of the German men's national soccer team"."I tried to answer one or two questions and then quit," said Shan, now 24, from the eastern coastal province of Zhejiang. "It was troublesome, and I didn't know the answers to those questions." Shan said she took the exam again in college and passed.Shanghai-based Bilibili, founded in 2009, has become the biggest video-comics-and-gaming entertainment platform for China's fast-growing Generation Z market segment, made up of consumers born between 1990 and 2009. But the company, according to analysts, has also reached a crossroads, which could hasten its decision to further water down its rigid examination to increase the number of its users and better compete against larger players in the country's online streaming video services industry."Over the years, we have gradually lowered the difficulty of the 100-question exam," a spokeswoman for Nasdaq-traded Bilibili said in an emailed statement. "This is because we have developed more ways to maintain our community's environment and enhance our users' experience. With such capabilities, we don't have to rely as much on the exam." Those included community behaviour protocols, user whistle-blowing functions, more accurate content recommendations and a larger inventory of high-quality content.Attendees dressed in anime costumes hold Bilibili logos during the company's initial public offering in New York on March 28, 2018.

Photo: BloombergBilibili had about 54 million total users who passed its exam as of the second quarter of this year. Qualified members gain the privilege of posting bullet comments, a popular Bilibili mechanism that enables comments to float directly above a video, which can be scrolled on screen. Bullet comments can either be in real time or left by previous viewers pegged to specific moments of a video. It is like chats on US video streaming service Twitch, but superimposed on the video.Bilibili's sharpened focus on user growth would help it develop into a major industry contender behind Chinese streaming video giants iQiyi, Youku and Tencent Video " backed, respectively, by internet titans Baidu, Alibaba Group Holding and Tencent Holdings. Alibaba is the parent company of the South China Morning Post.With the world's biggest internet population of more than 800 million, China has seen increased consumption of online video content. Baidu's iQiyi leads this market with about 588 million monthly unique device users, followed by Tencent Video with 549 million and Youku with 398 million, according to iResearch estimates in September. By comparison, Bilibili plans to reach 220 million monthly active users in 2021, up from 120 million to 130 million by the end of this year.While its time-consuming exam has helped Bilibili build up a loyal community " more than 60 per cent of its early users in 2009 remain active at present, according to its spokeswoman " the number of users have not grown as rapidly as other streaming video platforms. As Chinese animated film Nezha overtakes Avengers: Endgame's box office haul, firms from Tencent, Bilibili to China Literature could benefit"Balancing the growth and culture of the community is at the core of the issue," said independent internet industry commentator Zhang Dingding, former head of Beijing-based research firm Sootoo Institute. "I don't think the decision [of lowering the standards of its examination] would have much impact on existing users, but Bilibili needs to be more considerate about the sentiment of its early users."Bilibili currently allows a qualifying score of 60 for a user to pass its membership exam. The Post recently took the exam " which covered community rules, bullet comment items and other topics " and spent half an hour to achieve a pass, with some help from Google search."If I needed to pass a 100-question exam to become a member, then Bilibili may not be in my life right now," said Sean Feng, who works in Hong Kong's finance industry and became a Bilibili member before the company set up its exam. "I'd rather pay to be a Tencent Video member."Bilibili founder Xu Yi officially launched the site in January 2010, with a focus on building a community of anime video-sharing users. It has since expanded that community to cover a wide array of genres and media formats, including live broadcasting, mobile games and so-called professional user-generated content. Xu, who received his associate degree from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2010, has served as the company's president since 2013.Following Bilibili's Nasdaq listing in March last year, Tencent invested US$317.6 million in the company in October of the same year. Later in December, Bilibili entered into a business collaboration deal with Alibaba's Taobao Marketplace, which is geared towards content-driven e-commerce and commercialisation of the streaming video operator's intellectual property assets. This online celebrity says a company trademarked his nameBilibili recently started a pilot programme for paid courses on its platform to further monetise its operations. For example, an instructional course on using Adobe Premiere Pro to edit videos costs 99 yuan (US$14.16) for 15 classes. The firm, which remains unprofitable, has mobile games, live broadcasting, so-called value-added services and online advertising as its main revenue drivers."They'll need to bring in more users to [help] dilute the expenses in operations as well as research and development," industry analyst Zhang said.To be sure, average monthly active users for Bilibili have been on the rise. It had 110.4 million in the second quarter, up 30 per cent from a year ago. Quarterly net additions in monthly active users reached 9 million, the highest level since 2017, according to a report by Jefferies in August.Bilibili has also positioned itself as the online entertainment platform for young people in China, which means it features local content that resonates with this consumer market segment. While iQiyi, Youku and Tencent Video have dedicated vast resousrces on licensed video from major film studios and other commercial content providers, Bilibili has its own community of content creators called "uploaders" who have helped to closely engage its target audience."Now we have more than 730,000 active uploaders, who contribute 2.08 million original videos each month," the Bilibili spokeswoman said.Videos from the Huanong Brothers, for example, have generated 520 million views and 4.4 million followers. Farmers Liu Suliang and Hu Yueqing, from the landlocked province of Jiangxi in eastern China, upload videos about bamboo rat breeding and rural life in China. On the bullet comments their videos receive, the Huanong Brothers said: "It's fun and that's why it is special. Some of our videos have 100,000 bullet comments."For more insights into China tech, sign up for our tech newsletters, subscribe to our award-winning Inside China Tech podcast, and download the comprehensive 2019 China Internet Report.
