The Netflix of China has a market cap 1.5% that of Netflix… go figure 😳 I vowed 3 years ago to never buy anything China … the only guy with morals there is Jack Ma and they destroyed him and he is no where to be found….. this country is something special for sure
) is truly one of the best stock advice newsletters out there! Their daily emails give me all the information I need to trade more wisely each day. I rely heavily on their watchlists and recommend all traders should do the same!
nothing wrong with investing in China, they invest in many American companies and they buy huge amounts of treasury bonds. Think the US gov needs to work to resolve differences.
I sold 25% in 2/2020 at $27. Had I realized the dangers of investing in communist China stocks I would have sold 100%. I’m now down 83.6% in this communist party stock. It’s my only remaining Chinese company. I’m done. I can’t go to 💯 % loss. See yah
I am patiently waiting for the shorts to bring it down to $5 so I can average down.
I am like 90 percent sure they fired people to reduce expenses and show little profit or at least low expenses
Haven't checked on here in a long time. Sold about a year ago at around a 40% loss. Sell price of 19! Hurt at the time but glad I got something back from this dud. Next time will invest in something more promising like chow mein noodles.

Who bought at 46?
100 mil subscribers with 5 bil revenue that's what matter the most. Once subscriber numbers grow slowly and steadly this stock will be $50 range. Also, once the sentiment towards Chinese stocks turn, this stock will fly to the moon. Do your own DD.
I don’t know what I would do without the help of (
). Their watchlists are so well researched and help me make the best possible picks when it comes to investing. Not only do they save me time, but their advice has shown to be tried and true!
Looks like IQ is the NETFLIX of China. NETFLIX dropped down to under $3.00 and stayed there for years before all of a sudden taking off and now is over $600. The problem I see with IQ is that their membership fees are way too low. Netflix is sitting at $10-$12 and IQ is sitting around $3.50 a month. They need to raise the membership fees even if it means losing subscriptions.
Today has been the biggest drop in a long time and probably one of the biggest percentage drops ever.
More lawyers are jumping on the bandwagon and the shorts are loving it. Even tho mone of these lawyers will ever get a penny out of IQ.
This is the only stock
I've ever seen in my entire LIFE, THAT has positive articles, and goes more into the RED every day￼ !!
NOT, A DIP !!
I never learn my lesson with Chinese stocks. Only two stocks that I've lost serious money on in years are IQIYI ($IQ) and UP FinTech ($TIGR).
$IQ I ended up selling years ago at a large loss. Now $TIGR is starting to become my next Tax Loss Harvesting candidate.
Down 62%!!!! No way I ever recover from that unless I buy the dip in a major way. I thought the earnings report was fairly strong, but the constant negative regulatory news out of China and risk of fraudulent accounting is like facing the strongest headwinds.
This forum tends to be a big echo-chamber, where only bag holders come to the forums to hype up the stock (minus the bots and trolls), but can anyone seriously provide a strong bull case for $TIGR?
Quite literally, the worst stock I have ever owned.
iQIYI Debuts Original Series Luoyang Globally, As Part of Its IP Universe
12:02 AM ET 11/29/21 | Dow Jones
BEIJING, Nov. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- iQIYI, an innovative market-leading online entertainment service in China, will premiere its original drama Luoyang on Dec. 1 exclusively on the iQIYI main app, iQiyi International app, and
. The launch marks Luoyang the first city to be featured in the iQIYI Chinese Historic City Universe (iCHCU), which, encompassing a variety of content drawing inspiration from Beijing, Guangzhou, Longxi county of Dingxi, Dunhuang, Nanjing, and other Chinese cities, aims to bridge between China's local culture and iQIYI's global audience. At the press conference held on Nov. 26 in Shanghai, the company emphasized the significance of iCHCU as the company continues to explore and diversify the business value of IPs.
As the first production of "iCHCU of Luoyang," the TV series Luoyang has so far attracted more than 3.55 million users to register their interest in viewing on the iQIYI main app. Overseas audiences also indicated strong interest in the show, which hit seven trending topic charts on Twitter in Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam. Before the announcement of its premiere, the show was already successfully distributed in seven countries and regions, including Japan, South Korea, and Malaysia. After the premiere, the show will be released in more local mainstream channels and platforms in other countries and regions.
iQIYI officially announced the IP development plan for iCHCU at its iJOY Conference in October, as part of the company's continuous innovation and diversification of its monetization model. iCHCU represents the latest in iQIYI's attempt to build an IP universe and create an integrated IP development model that offers new kinds of content and fresh opportunities for cultural consumption.
At present, twelve projects and counting--including drama, variety show, documentary, animated series, games, merchandise, VR, and commercial real estate projects--are under development as part of the iCHCU of Luoyang. In addition to the comic series and variety show already released, iQIYI announced that the company's original documentary ShenDu Luoyang and the iQIYI original animation Luoyang (Anime) will also be available to viewers in December.
WANG Xiaohui, President of Professional Content Business Group (PCG) and Chief Content Officer of iQIYI, highlighted the breakthrough iCHCU's launch represents: "With its release, the iCHCU shows iQIYI breaking new ground in cinematic expression, original IP development, and business model innovation." For example, in terms of cinematic expression, underlying the iCHCU's integration of a variety of stories and forms of expression are iQIYI's creativity, ability to execute, and expertise in film industrialization--all of which the company spent over a decade on honing. "Years of hard work laid a solid ground for the company's boundary breaking attempt today," Wang said.
In terms of business model innovation, Wang reiterated iQIYI's commitment to IP development. Wang said, "Robust IPs come from developing a value chain, which will provide long-term sustainable business return."
Luoyang tells the story of a group of heroes who, despite challenges, bravely defended the city of Luoyang and protected the people there. In real life, the city of Luoyang is of great historical and cultural significance in China and was named one of the famous historical and cultural cities by the State Council.
The story was adapted from the novel Luoyang by MA Boyong, one of the most acclaimed authors in China and winner of the prestigious People's Literature Prize. At the press conference, Ma shared his inspiration for creating the story: "I like history. As a person who studies history, I find that no matter what period of history you study, Luoyang is a city you can never miss. Then I realized we should do something for a city so rich with legends."
The show showcased a talented crew and cast. Jointly produced by iQIYI and Liubai Entertainment and created by iQIYI Rising Studio, the show was directed by XIE Ze, with screenwriting by QING Mei and WU Cong. The show also stars HUANG Xuan, WANG Yibo and SONG Qian, acclaimed Chinese actors and actresses with global reach.
IQ will survive changing times and eventually rise. They do need to speed up profitability but their earnings are increasing
I have been waiting and waiting. Even I , or anyone here could have possibly thought this stock would go this low. I purchased because I know whenever I purchase the price goes even lower. I purchased just over 300 shares at $8.02 ($2500). I made a much smaller purchase at $8.96. Now I have waited for the big purchase. Now that this company has laid off 35%-40% of their workforce. That is money straight to the bottom line. Only one month worth in the 4th quarter but an entire quarter of saving money in the first quarter. The Chinese are out to SCREW the Americans as much as they can. They allow the price to fall down this low and then they will start pumping out news and run the price back up. Depending on how low they can actually take the price will determine whether I put in $10,000 or $15,000 to get 3000-5000 shares.
Right now China and the USA are at each others throat and the Chinese stocks are paying the price. Can someone explain why some of the US stocks are at multiples of 15, 20 and some almost as high as 30 times sales while IQ has now dropped down to around one times sales?
$150 in 1 Years 1 Month
IQ had another down week following its earnings release and conference call on Wednesday. For the week IQ was down $2.19 or 25% to close at $6.90 well below its $18 IPO price, a shadow of its 52-week high of $29 and far from its all-time high of $46 set in 2018.
Reported financials failed to achieve the low guidance that had been set for the quarter. Continued losses, slow sub growth, falling ad revenue and burning through $100M of cash in the quarter were some of the negatives and the forward guidance provide by management offered little / no hope of recovery any time soon. As a result, IQ’s broken fundamentals had institutional investors heading for the exits sending IQ’s shares tumbling.
Without any catalysts in sight, he only near-term hope for IQ would be a softening of anti-China sentiment that sends all Chinese stocks higher and if that occurs there are many better Chinese stocks to play instead of IQ. Without a China recovery it’s difficult to see IQ breaking out of the lower end of its trading range any time soon. While OK for short-term players it’s the worst news possible for those buy and hold longs who will likely need to wait years to see if IQ ever recovers.
With all that, decided to move to a monthly report since IQ’s fate has been sealed until they improve their financial outlook and build credibility with the Street. Hopefully they’ll report better news in February, replace company leadership and begin that rebuild process.
