  • After Earnings Miss, Baidu Stock Can Get Even Cheaper
    InvestorPlace19 hours ago

    After Earnings Miss, Baidu Stock Can Get Even Cheaper

    The bottom is falling out for Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU). Baidu stock fell by almost one-quarter on Friday and Monday. Excluding a very brief dip in 2015, BIDU stock now sits at its lowest level in almost six years.Source: Shutterstock The near-term catalyst has been BIDU's disappointing first-quarter report issued on Thursday afternoon. But there's more weighing on BIDU stock than just a single earnings report. As I wrote earlier this year, there have been significant concerns about the health of its business for a long time. * 7 Safe Stocks to Buy for Anxious Investors Its Q1 results and, perhaps more importantly, its Q2 guidance, suggest those concerns are quite realistic. And so I wouldn't recommend that investors try and time the bottom of BIDU stock just yet.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Baidu's EarningsOn the surface, Baidu's earnings look modestly disappointing, but they don't seem bad enough to drive such a steep fall. Adjusted earnings per share of 41 cents did miss analysts' consensus estimate by $0.16. But its revenue growth in Chinese yuan rose 15%, in-line with the consensus outlook, and its sales actually grew 21%, excluding the divestiture of a number of its businesses last year.The earnings miss sounds disappointing, but the overall numbers don't seem terribly out of line. The company's revenue is still growing. BIDU had warned that its profits would drop in the first half of the year, partly due to higher spending on its search business.But looking more closely, two factors drove Baidu's top-line growth. The first was its ownership of iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ), the so-called Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) of China. Baidu still owns roughly two-thirds of iQiyi, so IQ's results and its growth are reflected in Baidu's consolidated numbers.But Baidu's online marketing revenue, the key part of its wholly-owned business, increased just 3%. And Baidu spent an enormous sum on marketing in the quarter. SG&A, which includes marketing expenses, rose a stunning 93% year-over-year. Some of that increase was due to BIDU's efforts to support iQiyi's growth. But the operating income of Baidu's core operations plunged a stunning 67% year-over-year.Outside of iQiyi, then, Baidu essentially bought, at an expensive price, what little revenue growth it could muster. And Q2 isn't going to be much better. Baidu guided for consolidated revenue to rise just 1% to 6% excluding divestitures, representing a significant slowdown. The Baidu Stock Price PlungeSo the reaction to the earnings report does make some sense. Baidu's stake in IQ accounts for roughly 20% of its market cap; IQ shares have fallen on BIDU's results. BIDU's legacy business seems to have a significant top-line growth problem. And its increased spending is causing its profits to not only decline, but to decline sharply. BIDU stock simply has a very different fundamental profile after its earnings than it did previously.Beyond the numbers, the results confirm the fears that have dogged Baidu stock for some time. Its desktop search business is being displaced by greater use of apps, which bypass browsers and Baidu altogether. (That is also a concern for Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG,NASDAQ:GOOGL), to which Baidu is often compared, though Alphabet has done a better job of holding onto its business.) Baidu has added some self-inflicted wounds, including a scandal surrounding medical search results back in 2016 and complaints about its news results earlier this year.BIDU managed to come out the other side of the 2016 scandal. But its Q2 guidance, in particular, suggests a deceleration of growth to levels not seen since 2016-2017. That, in turn, implies that Baidu's brand in China has taken another hit from which it may not be as easy to recover.Outside of search, Baidu hasn't proven it can win. Its income from equity investments (which does not include iQiyi) declined 57% in Q1. Its efforts in artificial intelligence and the cloud don't appear to be moving the needle much. If Search starts to fade, it's not clear that BIDU will have an answer. Baidu Stock Doesn't Look Cheap EnoughBaidu stock looks awfully cheap on the surface. The company closed Q1 with over $18 billion in cash, excluding the funds held by iQiyi. Its stake in IQ is worth close to $10 billion. Combined, those assets support over half of the current market capitalization of BIDU stock.Based on those assets and analysts' 2019 consensus EPS estimate, it appears that Baidu stock is trading at a single-digit multiple to the profits of its core business. But it's worth noting that those EPS estimates are going to come down, and potentially sharply, in the wake of the Q1 results. BIDU stock may look cheap, but there's a wealth of evidence at the moment which suggests that it should be cheap.Meanwhile, the trade war still hangs over all Chinese stocks. But Baidu stock has badly lagged even its peers recentl. Big Chinese names like Alibaba (NYSE:BABA), JD.com (NASDAQ:JD), and Tencent (OTCMKTS:TCEHY) all posted solid earnings reports last week, and their shares have risen so far this year. What happens to BIDU stock if and when investors' views on China deteriorate?The response by Baidu stock over the last two sessions is not an overreaction, or a panic, or a case of investors not paying attention. There have been real concerns about BIDU stock for some time now, and those concerns seem supported by both its Q1 results and its Q2 guidance. So it's not surprising that Baidu stock has fallen so hard. And it wouldn't be a surprise if BIDU keeps falling.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.

    Bulls Are Winning the Trade War in JD Stock

    This company is not without risks. Still, following earnings JD.com (NASDAQ:JD) is sporting attractive fundamentals. The case for bullish investors looks compelling. Let me explain.Source: Daniel Cukier via FlickrIt hasn't been easy to be a JD stock investor. Shares topped out more than 16 months ago. And despite 2019's rally, JD is still more than 40% removed from those all-time-highs.But the winds of change are upon shares right now.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsJD's most recent quarterly confessional delivered strong evidence that the multifaceted tech giant is making the right moves. China's other answer to Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) easily beat Street top and bottom-line forecasts just over a week ago. But it's not just the headline beat which has our attention.First-quarter sales saw solid growth of 21%, which while slowing, is stabilizing, with management forecasting revenues for Q2 to grow by 19% to 23% annually. That's nice. And there's more. JD stock is also capturing higher gross margins with help from the company's expanding services business. That division grew by 50% and producing positive free cash flow courtesy of improved operating cash flow and project divestments. * 7 High-Yield REITs to Buy (Even When the Market Tanks) Lastly, JD stock's strategic partnership with tech giant Tencent has also been renewed. That's good news too. In conjunction with JD's Walmart (NYSE:WMT) collaboration, the trio are taking on Alibaba (NYSE:BABA), China's other but much larger e-commerce and cloud play. JD Stock Weekly ChartOf course, trade war risks remain for JD stock. And as we can see on the price chart below, an extended neckline and 38% Fibonacci level combine to form an area of challenging resistance. But there are reasons to be optimistic.First, with the head and shoulders pattern having completed in a successful triple bottom, today's "return move" test of the neckline in JD shares holds much less weight as potential resistance as the dominant pattern is bullish.Also of interest, unlike shares of BABA -- which saw investors taking profits following earnings -- JD stock found a bid. Not only that, shares remain above pre-earnings prices despite last week's trade war escalation and lower prices in the broader market for the five-day period.Finally, with last week's price action in JD stock resulting in upside confirmation for the decision-based doji candlestick, there's additional evidence JD's relative weakness on the price chart is turning the corner towards a period of outperformance.My recommendation if you want to go long JD stock is to use an improvised signal to buy shares and provide protection against unwanted downside risk. The suggestion is to wait for JD.com to rally back above the doji high of $30.47 before purchasing shares.The buy trigger remains in effect only if the low of the doji holds. Even though the triple bottom looks important, I'd be hesitant to be long JD stock, as there's a lot of downside risk between the doji if it fails to hold and December's key pattern low.Should shares produce a signal to purchase JD stock, I'd set an initial stop below the doji candle's closing price $28.17. The $2.30 exposure is the equivalent of 7.5% JD stock risk. In our view, along with taking initial profits at the 50% retracement level near $35, this looks like sufficient wiggle room off and on the price chart.Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in any securities mentioned in this article.

    6 Chinese Stocks That Could Pop On a Trade Deal

    The trade war is back, and that's bad news for Chinese stocks. In late 2018, Chinese stocks and broader financial markets dropped as trade tensions between the U.S. and China escalated. But, in 2019, those tensions cooled off, and the tone from top trade officials from both countries was largely and consistently positive. In response, China stocks rebounded alongside a broad financial market recovery.Trade talks, however, took a sharp turn for the worse in early May. U.S. President Donald Trump claimed that China "broke the deal", subsequently raised tariffs on imported Chinese goods from 10% to 25%, and proceeded to have a trade meeting with China that didn't produce a deal. China has retaliated with its own set of tariffs. A full-blown trade war is now on the horizon.Chinese stocks have dropped big in response.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut, many market observers are unaware of one critical element about this latest round of tariffs: they have a grace period. This means that while tariffs have been raised from 10% to 25%, that raise will not impact goods that are already in transit. Importantly, the first tariff raise to 10% did not have this grace period. Thus, the grace period broadly implies that the U.S. is hoping to strike a trade deal with China over the new few weeks, before the 25% tariff actually starts impacting products. * 7 Stocks to Buy that Lost 10% Last Week In that light, investors shouldn't expect these elevated trade tensions to persist. They should cool, and when they do, China stocks should pop. That's broadly why I'm positioning for a trade resolution in the near future, and am buying China stocks on recent weakness. JD.com (JD)Source: Daniel Cukier via FlickrPerhaps the best Chinese stock to buy on recent trade-related weakness is China e-commerce giant JD.com (NASDAQ:JD).Context is important here. JD stock was really beaten up in 2018 amid slowing growth and compressing margin concerns, both of which were happening against the backdrop of a slowing China economy. But, in 2019, JD stock has rallied in a big way as growth has stabilized in the 20%-plus range and margins have improved, against the backdrop of a Chinese economy that is picking up steam again.Now, JD stock is back to sell-off mode. Specifically, the stock is down more than 10% over the past month, despite reporting a robust double-beat quarter during that stretch which broadly confirmed that growth remains resilient and margins continue to improve.In other words, JD stock is selling off in a big way right now because of what could be, not what is. But, what could be might not come to be, if a trade deal is struck within the next few weeks. If that happens, all these concerns will fade away. Investors will re-focus on the numbers, which have been really good in 2019. As they do, JD stock will rebound in a big way. Alibaba (BABA)Source: Shutterstock Shares of Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) have dropped 13% in the past week amid escalating trade tensions. This marks the stock's biggest drop of 2019, as well as the stock's biggest correction since the December 2018 plunge across global financial markets.But, the core growth narrative at Alibaba remains healthy. Revenue growth rates remain north of 40%, supported by continued expansion of the Asian digital economy, robust e-commerce growth, and a secular cloud services pivot. Also, trends have improved in 2019 amid renewed consumer confidence throughout China. These new tariffs won't impact consumer confidence so quickly. Instead, if a deal is indeed struck within the next few weeks, this new round of tariffs will never strike consumer confidence. Thus, Alibaba's numbers will look like nothing even happened. * 10 Stocks to Sell Before They Tank Your Portfolio But, something did happen: BABA stock dropped nearly 15%. As such, a trade deal could spark a big reversal in BABA stock, and once again push this stock back toward all-time highs. Baidu (BIDU)Source: Simone.Brunozzi Via FlickrMore so than Alibaba, shares of Chinese digital search giant Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) have been killed recently amid rising trade tensions, dropping nearly 20% over the course of the past month.The reason for the more pronounced sell-off is that the core fundamentals here aren't quite as good. Specifically, Baidu has been hit with a double headwind of slowing growth and falling margins over the past several quarters, and investors aren't sure exactly when these trends will reverse course. If trade tensions continue to rise for the foreseeable future, then these headwinds won't reverse course anytime soon. BIDU stock will continue to drop.But, if trade tensions cool and a deal is signed soon, then everything changes for BIDU stock. China's economy will continue to improve. The digital ad market will continue to expand. As it does, Baidu's growth rates should stabilize. Margins, too. Growth and margin stabilization on a stock that is 50% off its all-time highs should produce big returns. As such, BIDU stock could fly high on a potential trade deal. Weibo (WB)Source: Shutterstock When it comes to Chinese social blogging site Weibo (NASDAQ:WB), you have a hyper-growth company that has remained on a hyper-growth trajectory. But, WB stock has been killed on slowing macro China concerns. Thus, if those concerns hang around, the stock will continue to suffer. But, if those concerns disappear with a trade deal, then WB stock will soar.Broadly speaking, Weibo is China's Twitter (NYSE:TWTR). But, Wiebo has more users than Twitter, is more profitable than Twitter, and is growing more quickly than Twitter. Despite all that, Weibo has a market cap about half that of Twitter. Why? ARPU rates. Weibo monetizes its users less than Twitter. This is just a time issue. Over time, as Weibo pivots from growing its user base to growing its digital ad business, ARPU rates will rise. When they do, WB stock should rise significantly. * 10 Retirement Stocks That Won't Wilt in a Bear Market The one thing holding WB stock back has been a temporary pause in the China digital ad growth narrative, which is the result of less enthusiastic enterprise spend amid slowing economic conditions. But, those conditions have improved in 2019, and will improve meaningfully if a trade deal is struck. Thus, if a trade deal is struck, Weibo's numbers should improve over the next several quarters. That improvement will spark a big rally in WB stock. Tencent (TCEHY)Source: Shutterstock China internet giant Tencent (OTCMKTS:TCEHY) has fared better than its China tech peers during this recent round of tariff increases. As of this writing, TCEHY stock is less than 10% off its 2019 highs, while many of its peers are 10% to 20% off their 2019 highs.The relative strength in TCEHY stock can be attributed to the stock's favorable fundamentals. Tencent is the heartbeat of China's internet economy, from social media to digital payments to music streaming, and everything in between. A big piece of this economy is video games. In 2018, due to various regulatory issues, China put a freeze on new video game approvals. That really hurt Tencent's business. In 2019, that freeze has been lifted, and new video games are hitting the market for the first time in years.That's a big deal for TCEHY stock, and this positive development is mostly why the stock has fared better amid escalating trade tensions in early May. It's also why this stock could be a big winner if these trade tensions ease. If they ease, Tencent's two biggest headwinds of 2018 (trade tensions and a video game freeze) will be fully behind it. With those headwinds fully behind it, TCEHY stock, which is still 25% off its all-time highs, could soar. Ctrip (CTRP)Source: Thomas Galvez via FlickrNatural losers in a slowing economy are companies associated with travel. After all, travel is most often seen as a luxury. Consumers travel when they are employed, confident and have extra cash. They don't travel when they are unemployed, lack confidence and don't have extra cash. That's why Chinese online travel site Ctrip (NASDAQ:CTRP) fell off a cliff in 2018 as China's economy slowed.It's also why CTRP stock has bounced back in a big way in 2019 as China's economy has stabilized and even improved. But, the rally has been hit hard over the past few weeks amid rising trade tensions. During that stretch, CTRP stock has dropped over 15%. The stock will continue to drop so long as these trade tensions hang around. That's just the nature of CTRP stock and its relation to China's economic trends. * Top 7 Dow Jones Stocks of 2019 -- So Far But, as is the case with JD, recent weakness in Ctrip is the result of fears surrounding what could be, not what is. The current conditions are very favorable for Ctrip. China's economy is improving, consumer confidence is back, and the company just reported a robust double-beat quarter with 20%-plus revenue growth and healthy margins. If a trade deal is struck, and these current favorable trends persist, then CTRP stock will bounce back in a big way from this recent selloff.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long JD, BABA, BIDU, WB, TWTR and CTRP.

    Here’s the Reason I’m Not Buying the IQ Stock Discount

    We haven't even hit the halfway point of this year, and iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ) is already exhibiting rollercoaster-like behavior. In the first two months of 2019, the IQ stock price gained over 78%, turning embattled stakeholders ecstatic. However, the mood quickly soared shortly thereafter. Right now, shares are up 48% -- a great haul, but no 78%.Source: Shutterstock Even worse, iQiyi stock has shown no sign of returning to its former glory. Part of that volatility has a very clear-cut explanation: after a noticeable thaw in U.S.-China relations, President Trump ramped up tariffs on Chinese-made goods. In turn, the world's second-largest economy promised to retaliate. Not only did iQiyi fall, but so too did compatriots Alibaba (NYSE:BABA), JD.com (NASDAQ:JD), and many others.But in the case of the IQ stock price, the value drop presents a confusing look for investors. On one hand, Chinese companies look like names to avoid at this immediate juncture. On the flipside, contrarians may view this as an opportunity to grab a viable growth firm on the cheap.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Great Stocks to Buy on Dips I can appreciate the temptation. As the Chinese population grew in both size and wealth, Hollywood, along with every other industry saw dollar signs. And it's no understatement that Chinese moviegoers and content consumers have kept the lights on at many studios.That fact alone bodes well for iQiyi stock. As a content producer for the world's largest market, IQ stock should veritably moon.Still, IQ stock languishes. Outside of speculative trading, I'd stay away from this company. Here's why: Narrow Focus Hurts IQ StockTheoretically, iQiyi stock has a bulletproof-business plan: sell Chinese entertainment to Chinese people. In reality, the situation is much more complex. You only need to look at the technical charts to realize this.But why, with a billion-plus audience base, is the IQ stock price failing? This is a simple, but underappreciated risk factor: audiences are incredibly fickle and difficult to predict.Let's look at The Great Wall, a somewhat-controversial film that represented a joint effort between U.S. and Chinese movie studios. As you may know, the entire film centered on China and Chinese folklore. It also featured a heavy dosing of Chinese actors. The one rub was that Matt Damon starred in the film rather than a Chinese actor. Eventually, the movie would go on to bomb at home and abroad.Meanwhile, another U.S.-China co-production, The Meg, featured similar problems: an Asian-led research facility needs help, and the "white savior" archetype provides it, while also getting the (Asian) girl. The film featured almost all the tired, unoriginal stereotypes about Asians.It was a massive box-office success both here and in China.This strange dynamic tells me a lot about Chinese audiences, and by logical deduction, iQiyi stock.The Chinese want entertainment, and Hollywood knows how to deliver, not just in China, but in the rest of the world. Thus, I find iQiyi's near-exclusive focus on China as a liability, not an asset. Financial Metrics Say Everything about iQiyi Stock, UnfortunatelyQuarter-to-quarter, IQ stock's revenue growth is no longer impressive. More worryingly, the company's net-income losses have widened significantly over the same span. If they want to right the ship, they must produce content that appeals universally. * 10 Retirement Stocks That Won't Wilt in a Bear Market Ultimately, I think the mistake that investors are making with iQiyi stock is assuming the "China factor" has clout. It does, but it's not the main dish. You still must produce compelling content, compelling enough for viewers to open their wallets. That's not happening, which is why I'm avoiding this name.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto is long AMC.

    Amazon’s China Woes Bolster the Bull Case on Alibaba Stock

    One good inning doesn't make an entire baseball game, but baseball games are won by playing one good inning at a time. To that end, Alibaba Group Holding (NYSE:BABA) just completed a pretty good inning in its never-ending battle with e-commerce giant Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), boosting the outlook of BABA stock in the process.Source: Shutterstock Although BABA stock hasn't performed like a winner over the course of the past few days -- thanks to concerns that the trade war with China may never end -- the dip of Alibaba stock may ultimately prove to be a fantastic buying opportunity. * 7 Dividend Stocks to Buy as the Trade War Reignites That's because BABA has finally forced Amazon out of China, leaving behind JD.Com (NASDAQ:JD) as its only serious rival.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Amazon Bows OutAMZN was never a serious contender in China.Though Amazon.com launched its e-commerce business in China in 2004 via its acquisition of Joyo and rebranded that venture as Amazon China in 2011, its best recorded market share was only a bit over 15%. Now, the Wall Street Journal reports, Amazon only controls 6% of China's e-commerce market, though research firms have put the figure closer to 1%.China is probably the biggest reason that Amazon's international arm is still bleeding money, and in April Amazon announced it would be shutting down its China operations. AMZN will still sell goods to China's consumers, but, to buy products from Amazon, they must shop on platforms intended for other countries and regions.The long-term owners of BABA stock who've paid close attention to the rivalry aren't apt to be surprised. While it looked early on as if Amazon had a shot at turning China into a key profit center, the company's business never synced well with the way China's consumers shop or with the way its domestic suppliers operate.Shoppers are able to order items directly from vendors through Alibaba's Tmall, often enjoying free shipping and one-day delivery of goods at prices lower than Amazon offered.Culturally, Chinese consumers may have also tacitly been aiming to support the local entity rather than its American competitor. BABA Is Opening More DoorsAlibaba is already positioned to capitalize on the vacuum that Amazon.com is about to create, boosting the outlook BABA stock in the process.In November of last year, BABA said it would look to import $200 billion worth of foreign goods and sell them to China's shoppers over the next five years. CEO Daniel Zhang commented "We hope through globalization to use China's consumer market to bring the whole world's goods to China… especially some small and medium sized enterprises, they need to open their market in China."It will probably be easier for China's consumers to buy products from a local middleman than an overseas one.In the meantime, Alibaba is positioning itself as a reliable partner that's capable of growth, while Amazon is being forced to retreat. For the first time ever, BABA's AliExpress will allow non-Chinese manufacturers to use its sales platform to sell goods to the more than 150 countries in which AliExpress operates.AliExpress is only being opened up to small and medium-sized businesses in Russia, Turkey, Italy and Spain. But, it's a start, taking shape at a time when small and medium-sized businesses are seemingly being discouraged from using Amazon's online-shopping platform. This alternative to Amazon.com has to have gotten the attention of smaller businesses whose only current option is Amazon. The Bottom Line on BABA StockAmazon's abandonment of its domestic China business is not necessarily a game-changer for BABA stock, and it will take awhile for Amazon's absence to meaningfully boost Alibaba and BABA stock.Nevertheless, the competitive shift absolutely bolsters the already-bullish outlook of BABA stock.More than anything, however, investors may be underestimating the depth of Amazon's trouble in China, which sets the stage for an expansion by BABA.AMZN's ability to use its websites based in other countries to sell products to Chinese consumers will probably be limited. iResearch analyst Choi Chun explains that, "cross-border e-commerce in China is not as consolidated as regular domestic e-commerce, (since) online shoppers go to different platforms for different overseas merchandises."
