    Iqiyi: Like Netflix, but Not Like Netflix

    No Chinese stock excites traders like Iqiyi (NASDSAQ:IQ).Source: Faizal Ramli / Shutterstock.com Iqiyi (pronounced Ee-KWEE-kwi) is a streaming video company focused on people whose primary device is a mobile phone. Its shows are short and highly interactive, perfect for a young worker on their bus ride or coffee break. It is very different from Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), although both have intense, passionate CEOs.Iqiyi is a partial spin-off of Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), a search engine and cloud that's the weakest of that country's three "Cloud Emperors." Both Iqiyi and Baidu are growing, but Iqiyi's losses remain ahead of expectations.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Marijuana Stocks to Ride High on the Farm Bill For the quarter ending in June Iqiyi lost $339 million, 49 cents per share fully diluted, on revenue of $1 billion. Iqiyi lost almost the same amount during last year's second quarter, but with 33% less revenue. The numbers, and a ton of call options from traders betting on a different result, caused an overnight sell-off of 9%, but IQ stock quickly recovered. Iqiyi Is Not Like NetflixInvestors on Aug. 21 are going to read all about the drop, and less about the recovery.The recovery is based on the paid membership. Subscribers pay just $3 per month. Members also see ads, which they don't do on Netflix. Since IQ users are members these ads can be narrowly targeted.I have written about IQiyi before and questioned its business model. I also warned against buying its sharp rise this spring (which wasn't sustained).More recently, I have emphasized the difference between Iqiyi's model and that of Netflix. It's now No. 1 in the Chinese market, ahead of Tencent (OTCMKTS:TCEHY) and Alibaba (NASDAQ:BABA), whose parent companies are much bigger. Iqiyi Is Like NetflixBut in some ways Iqiyi is a lot like Netflix.As founder and CEO Tim Gong Yu noted in the company's recent earnings call, Iqiyi creates programs in-house that are tailored to its unique audiences, and spends money ahead of the market.Its earliest hits were reality games like "The Rap of China," "The Big Band," and "CZR," all variations of "American Idol." It is now paying more for scripted dramas like "The Thunder," a detective show, "Go Go Squid," a romantic comedy, and "Love and Destiny," a costume epic. Long-term liabilities have doubled, most of them covered by convertible notes.Iqiyi stock was also hit during its most recent quarter by an industry-wide slowdown in the advertising market. Advertising revenue fell 16%. Its subscriber growth depends on getting better wireless infrastructure in smaller Chinese cities. It also needs to keep customers once they get them, reducing churn and marketing costs per subscriber. Iqiyi is hugely popular among young people in China's biggest cities. Gong Yu admitted the company needs to raise its game among older people and those in smaller markets.Unlike Netflix, Iqiyi also has a games business. It recently acquired a game maker called Skymoons. The hope is that Skymoons programmers can deliver games based on Iqiyi shows, and game revenue was up 82% year over year. The Bottom Line on IQ StockIqiyi is still a speculative stock, but it does have a compelling story.Bulls will note that Iqiyi is still growing its customer base and that it has several different ways to monetize - memberships, advertising and gaming services. They will point to CEO Tim Gong Yu, who has his company ahead of rivals backed by much bigger companies. They will brush off losses as the price of growth, over 27% year-over-year for the period from January through June.Bears will question the China story, point to the abundant competition, and note that Iqiyi stock has yet to narrow its losses.Iqiyi is a game for younger, hungrier investors than me. Buy if you're young and can afford a loss, watch it closely, and your patience may be rewarded.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

    Amazon’s Cloud-Computing Empire Faces Threat From Edge of the Network

    (Bloomberg) -- Three companies — Amazon.com Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Alphabet Inc. — quietly dominate the world of cloud computing.With more more than 100 giant data centers worldwide, they rent out computing power to all manner of customers, making billions of dollars along the way. In fact, cloud computing has done more to fuel Amazon’s earnings in recent years than its e-commerce business.But there’s a threat looming on the horizon, quite literally at the edge of the network. With so many mobile devices and sensors now connected to the internet — and relying on artificial intelligence — more people and companies need their computing power close to them. For everything from fast analysis of road conditions to streaming holographic concerts, remote data centers are just too far away.That’s going to hand a huge opportunity to wireless carriers, which are building fast 5G networks to handle the task. And create a threat for the dominant cloud-computing players, according to telecom analyst Chetan Sharma. “Over time, cloud will be primarily used for storage and running longer computational models, while most of the processing of data and AI inference will take place at the edge,” said Sharma, who just wrote a report on the topic sponsored by software provider AlefEdge Inc. He pegs the size of this so-called edge-computing market at more than $4 trillion by 2030.Wireless carriers and the owners of cell towers have a big advantage in the edge-computing race: Not only do they control access to high-speed telecommunications networks, they have valuable real estate, such as tens of thousands of cell sites all over the country.Cloud computing isn’t going away by any means. But there’s more pressure on the industry’s Big Three to team up with wireless carriers, so they’re not left out of the burgeoning edge market.“The big players realize that at a minimum they need to partner up with operators to get access to their real-estate property,” Sharma said.Already, AT&T Inc. — the second-largest U.S. wireless carrier — has joined forces with Microsoft Corp. and IBM Corp., two cloud providers.“Our goal is that our partners are wildly successful,” said Sam George, a cloud executive at Microsoft. “If our partners are wildly successful, we’ll be wildly successful. There’s a lot of money to be made for partners.”Amazon and Google declined to comment on their plans.AT&T has hundreds of workers focused on edge computing, and it’s “a core part of our 5G strategy,” said Mo Katibeh, chief marketing officer of AT&T’s business division.“This is one that takes a village.”IBM, meanwhile, is also working with carrier Vodafone Group Plc in Europe.“The networks are essentially themselves becoming a cloud,” said Steve Canepa, IBM’s global managing director for the telecom industry. “The telcos today have a point of presence at the edge, and that becomes a great place to have an extension of the platform.”Cloud providers in China — such as Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd. and Tencent Holdings Ltd. — invested in carrier China Unicom two years ago. And more such investments and partnerships could be coming, Sharma said.For other tech companies, including chipmakers like Intel Corp., the hope is the shift leads to a bigger opportunity for everyone.“We see a rapid convergence between the cloud providers and connectivity providers,” said Caroline Chan, a general manager at Intel. “In our view, it’s a bigger pie.”Other telecom players are angling to team up with both carriers and cloud providers. Crown Castle International Corp., which owns fiber lines as well as more than 40,000 cell towers in the U.S., is in talks with the two camps, said Paul Reddick, a vice president at the company.Crown Castle also is an investor in startup Vapor IO, which is deploying edge computing this year in six metro areas, including Chicago.“I would say this is one that takes a village,” Reddick said.Other projects are already well underway. At CenturyLink Inc., about 100 facilities that used to store telecom equipment are now outfitted with servers. And it’s making them available to corporate customers in sectors like retail and industrial robotics.“We’ve already sold these facilities to a number of customers that need to get that compute closer to the network edge,” said Paul Savill, a senior vice president at CenturyLink. “We’ve seen enough activity in this space that we can confidently build out this infrastructure.”To contact the author of this story: Olga Kharif in Portland at okharif@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Nick Turner at nturner7@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Baidu's Stock Surges on Solid Earnings, Hint of Revenue Recovery

    China’s search leader rolls with the punches and expands its ecosystem beyond PCs and mobile devices.

  • Baidu’s CEO Warns of ‘Pain’ After Search Giant Fights Off Rivals

    Baidu’s CEO Warns of ‘Pain’ After Search Giant Fights Off Rivals

    (Bloomberg) -- So challenging are the times for Baidu Inc. that even meager revenue growth is cause for celebration.The Chinese search leader’s shares surged as much as 10% in extended trading after it reported sales inched up 1.4% to 26.3 billion yuan ($3.8 billion) in the June quarter, versus projections for a drop. Baidu foresees current-quarter revenue of 26.9 billion yuan to 28.5 billion yuan, flat to down a tad and roughly in line with estimates.The better-than-expected results will soothe investors’ worries for now that the 19-year-old company is losing steam rapidly as China’s internet evolves from desktop to mobile. Yet it continues to grapple with a broader economic slowdown as well as competition for advertisers from Tencent Holdings Ltd. and ByteDance Inc. The latter is chipping away at Baidu’s ad sales via increasingly popular news and social media apps, and also recently launched a general search engine -- a direct challenge to Baidu’s core business.“Facing severe outside challenges and a weak macro environment, the company has initiated a series of groundbreaking changes from top to bottom, involving company structures, personnel moves and business consolidation,” Baidu Chief Executive Officer Robin Li said in a letter to employees after the results. “Despite periodic pain, these changes will have positive and profound impact, enabling Baidu to walk farther and steadier.”Read more: Baidu’s $66 Billion Dive Knocks It Out of China’s Internet Top 5Net income dropped to 2.41 billion yuan, reversing a loss in the prior quarter -- Baidu’s first since going public in 2005. The company enjoyed a near-monopoly in online search after Alphabet Inc.’s Google exited China in 2010 but has in past years suffered a plethora of troubles from a regulatory clampdown over healthcare ads to the departure of a slew of top executives including Xiang Hailong, a 14-year veteran who ran its core search business.The search giant is betting on new technology such as artificial intelligence and self-driving cars, but these pushes aren’t going to pay off financially any time soon. In the meantime, Baidu is investing in content to hold onto users, backing social media platforms including Q&A site Zhihu and science sharing platform Guokr. Daily active app users climbed 27% in the June quarter to 188 million, while subscribers on its Netflix-style iQiyi service grew by about 50% to 100.5 million in June.Baidu had fallen off the list of China’s five most valuable internet companies, trailing Meituan and NetEase Inc., after shedding more than 40% of its market value this year. Once touted as a member of China’s tech triumvirate alongside Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and Tencent, Baidu has been left behind as the country’s internet evolves.Baidu’s forecast “indicates continued pressure from multiple headwinds, including China’s weakening macroeconomic environment hurting advertisers’ sentiment, the company’s cleanup of low quality health-care advertisers, and the large influx of competitive advertising inventory depressing industry prices,” Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Vey-Sern Ling said.To contact the reporter on this story: Zheping Huang in Hong Kong at zhuang245@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Edwin Chan at echan273@bloomberg.net, Colum Murphy, Peter ElstromFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Baidu Stock Looks Risky Ahead of Earnings

    Chinese internet search giant Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) is set to report second-quarter numbers after today's bell and I'm not too optimistic on BIDU stock ahead of the print.Source: StreetVJ / Shutterstock.com From a high-level perspective, it does appear that China's economy is rebounding. Economic data coming out of China has meaningfully improved over the past several months. Meanwhile, Chinese tech heavyweights Alibaba (NYSE:BABA), JD.Com (NASDAQ:JD) and Tencent (OTCMKTS:TCEHY) all recently reported strong quarterly numbers.But two of those three companies -- JD and Tencent -- said on their earnings calls that the ad market in China remains incredibly challenging. Tencent's ad business actually slowed this quarter. Baidu gets most of its revenue from its ad business. As such, with the broad read from recent reports being that China's ad business remains under tremendous pressure, the chance of Baidu reporting favorable numbers is not great.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThat's why I'm avoiding BIDU stock this earnings season. This stock is in a big secular decline because its numbers have consistently disappointed investors. Those numbers will likely continue to disappoint for the foreseeable future. Thus, while Baidu stock is pretty cheap, it's still too risky to try and catch this falling knife.The big implication here? Stay until away until there's reason to come back. Baidu's Numbers Likely Won't Be GoodThe big reason to avoid BIDU stock ahead of the Q2 print is because it looks like the numbers won't be that good. * 7 Safe Dividend Stocks for Investors to Buy Right Now Baidu has a lot of moving parts. But, at its core, this is the Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) of China. As such, Baidu is an advertising business. Specifically, this is a search advertising business. But, the whole digital ad market in China -- and specifically the search ad market -- is dramatically slowing, mostly because it's oversaturated and because the entire economy is slowing.In these slowing markets, Baidu is also losing share. This share erosion has two drivers. One, alternative ad formats are more compelling (like in-feed and social). Two, Baidu is staring at elevated competition in the search game.Net net, Baidu is losing share in a slowing market. This has caused core revenue growth rates to slow from 50%-plus a few years ago, to under 20% last quarter. At the same time, Baidu is aggressively investing in alternative growth arenas to re-stimulate growth. This big spend is killing margins. Slowing growth plus falling margins equals tumbling profits. That's exactly what's happening. BIDU stock's earnings per share is expected to be cut in half this year.It does not appear that the Q2 print will have anything in it that will change the course of this downbeat narrative. JD said in its recent conference call that the China ad market remains under great pressure. Tencent had a similar tone in its conference call, citing a challenging digital ad macro environment as the reason why their digital ad business slowed from 25% growth in Q1 to 16% growth in Q2.If JD and Tencent -- two companies whose ad businesses have been relatively strong -- struggled this past quarter on the ad front, then it's pretty likely that Baidu -- a company whose ad business has been in free-fall -- struggled too. Continued bad numbers from Baidu won't be enough to shake BIDU stock out of its multi-quarter downtrend. Baidu Stock Is Cheap -- But the Worst May Not Be OverZooming out, Baidu stock is unequivocally very cheap in the big picture.Revenue growth trends are falling flat this year. But they will probably improve over the next several years as Baidu adapts its ad business to be more relevant in China's double-digit growth ad market. Thus, Baidu should be able to start stabilizing market share over the next several years, which should lead to renewed and consistent double-digit revenue growth. Revenue growth consistency will allow the company to pull back on big growth-related investments, so margins should improve too.Realistically, Baidu could grow revenues at a roughly 10% rate from 2019 into 2025, while adjusted operating margins could bounce back to 20% (where they were in 2018). Those assumptions make $15 in EPS seem doable for Baidu by 2025. Based on a market average 16-forward multiple, that implies a 2024 price target for BIDU stock of $240. Discounted back by 10% per year, that equates to a 2019 price target of roughly $150.That's more than 50% higher than where Baidu stock trades today. Thus, BIDU stock is undervalued.But, it will remain undervalued until investors have reason to believe that Baidu will stabilize its share in China's slowing digital ad market. That won't happen this quarter. As such, for the foreseeable future, BIDU stock will likely remain undervalued. Bottom Line on BIDU StockAt some point, Baidu stock will stage a huge, rip-your-face-off rally. But not today. That rally won't happen until Baidu proves that it can stabilize share in the slowing China digital ad market, and thereby, stabilize margins and profits. Baidu won't prove that this quarter. Until it does, it's best to stay away from this falling knife.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long BABA, JD and GOOG.

    Shopify’s Success Puts Spotlight on Next Canadian Tech Stars

    (Bloomberg) -- Shopify Inc.’s scorching rally and Lightspeed POS Inc.’s successful trading debut this year are throwing the spotlight on who might be the next Canadian tech star to go public.A total of C$1 billion ($751 million) was invested in 142 venture capital deals in the first quarter, up 48% from a year earlier, according to the Canadian Venture & Private Equity Association. More than half of that was in tech and increasingly from U.S. investors.Here’s what the founders of some of Canada’s hottest tech firms are saying about the future of their companies, and the potential for initial public offerings:ClearbancClearbanc offers $10,000 to $10 million to startups to help fund their marketing campaigns on Facebook, Google and the like in return for a flat fee and a share of revenue.The Toronto-based investment firm, founded in 2015, raised $300 million in new funding led by Highland Capital Partners of the U.S., the largest disclosed VC-financing this year in Canada. That brings total funding to $420 million.Clearbanc plans to offer $1 billion in financing this year and is interested in funding parts of a business that could turn into a repeatable revenue stream--infrastructure, shipping and sales commissions.It’s expanding outside the U.S. and Canada, where there’s a less developed venture ecosystem and “banks are more conservative,” according to co-founder and chief executive officer, Andrew D’Souza.“We think that the fundamentals of the business, the market opportunity, justifies a large standalone business,” D’Souza said about the possibility of an IPO.WattpadWattpad Corp. may no longer be a startup but its ambitions just keep growing. Founded as a mobile-reading app, 12-year-old Wattpad now calls itself a “multi-platform entertainment company.”The Toronto-based company has provided content for one of the most re-watched movies on Netflix (“The Kissing Booth”), a Hulu series (“Light as a Feather”), and this year a Hollywood feature film (“After”), all through Wattpad Studios, launched in 2016.Last week it inked a deal with Penguin Random House in the U.K. to turn its online content, mainly created and read by young women, into books. That follows the launch of its own publishing imprint, Wattpad Books, in the U.S. in April.The company uses data from more than 80 million monthly active users to identify the best stories across its platform and turn them into content. It has launched a paid, ad-free version as well as exclusive content for a fee.Wattpad has raised $117.8 million from investors including OMERS Ventures, Tencent Holdings Ltd.’s capital arm, and August Capital Corp, and is generating revenue in “eight figures,” according to co-founder and chief executive, Allen Lau.As for an IPO, it’s “not what we spend time focusing on,” Lau said. “Our focus right now is on movies and TV shows, with our partners.”VidyardVidyard Inc. wants to be the YouTube of business videos. Its software allows companies to create personalized videos to engage with customers and use data from their viewing habits to analyze that engagement.Companies are expected to spend $103 billion annually in video-ad marketing by 2023, according to Forrester Research.Vidyard counts 1,200 businesses in over 170 countries as its customers, including enterprise customers such as Honeywell International Inc., LinkedIn and Citibank.“In terms of the next two to three years, we’re just focused on consistent, hockey-stick style growth,” says Devon Galloway, co-founder and chief technology officer at Kitchener, Ontario-based Vidyard.The company has raised $60 million to date from investors including OMERS Ventures, Inovia Capital and the venture capital arm of Salesforce Inc.Galloway said if Vidyard continues to grow as well as it has an IPO would certainly be on its path.WealthsimpleWealthsimple Inc., wishes to replace banks as a customer’s primary financial relationship, according to founder and CEO Michael Katchen.“We want to be a firm that demystifies money,” Katchen said in an interview in Bloomberg’s Toronto office. The investment-services company has more than C$5 billion in assets under management and 175,000 customers in Canada, the U.S. and U.K.The robo-adviser favored by millennials, is also targeting wealthier Canadians and has branched out into commission-free stock trading and savings products. Mortgages, life insurance and checking accounts could be next, Katchen said.Founded in 2014, WealthSimple is not yet profitable, but its backers are patient, Katchen said. These include Power Financial Corp., an investment arm run by the Desmarais family and Allianz SE.Katchen said he’s interested in an IPO but it’s still “a few years away.”(Updates with Clearbanc’s financing plan)To contact the reporter on this story: Simran Jagdev in Toronto at sjagdev1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jacqueline Thorpe at jthorpe23@bloomberg.net;David Scanlan at dscanlan@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    iQiyi Stock Will See Lower Prices

    It doesn't take a genius to point out iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ) has been in a bearish trend. But looking forward and with earnings on tap, both off and on the price chart IQ stock's pain looks far from over. Let me explain.Source: Shutterstock iQiyi has been hailed as the Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) of China. But IQ stock actually operates a lot more like an amalgam of Netflix, Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) YouTube and Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) Twitch. It sounds interesting, but the IQ story faces an uphill battle which it's unlikely to conquer.Off the chart, IQ stock has delivered large and indefensible losses which aren't going away anytime soon. The trend of producing original but very costly content has only continued to increase. In fact it absorbed a staggering 79% of iQiyi's revenue in Q1 and up 38% from the prior year.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBottom line, competing in today's streaming video market is a serious threat in IQ stock's ability to reach profitability -- unless IQ stock miraculously produces a great deal more revenue growth than the company has so far. But don't hold your breath.With China's economy continuing to weaken and ad revenues from the company's YouTube inspired business shrinking, the reality of profitability for IQ stock is even further out of reach. And as InvestorPlace's Mark Hake points out, with a massive annual cash burn rate of 53%, iQiyi's difficulties are even more pronounced. * 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Load Up On And it only gets worse for IQ stock. The company has a couple of other big problems. iQiyi is being challenged by much larger, profitable and well-capitalized Chinese tech giants Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) and Tencent (OTCMKTS:TCEHY). Not only do these companies have the wherewithal to absorb losses to gain market-share, they're in position to stay the course, even if today's slower growth environment becomes a full-blown recession.Lastly, there's also IQ's price chart. It's our technical view iQiyi shares aren't in position to win over any fans, except perhaps bearish traders comfortable with shorting stock. IQ Stock Daily Chart Following a very brief respite which saw shares surge higher and unsuccessfully challenge the 200-day simple moving average earlier this summer, it has been all downhill for IQ stock investors. And right now, shares of IQ are setting up in a bearish pattern pointing at even lower prices.Specifically, IQ stock has formed a flag under price support which preceded the jump in share price and beneath the 76% retracement level. That's not good news for bulls. Moreover, with stochastics curling into a bearish crossover inside neutral territory, iQiyi is in position for shorting. Trading IQ Stock Gaining short exposure in IQ stock before the company reports next Monday looks approachable. But the possibility of increased earnings volatility, which can work against the position, needs to be respected. As much, and for those seeking a bearish position in front of the iQIYI report, I wouldn't recommend shorting shares outright. But that doesn't mean you can't trade IQ stock.Instead, I'd suggest using a slightly out-of-the-money bear put spread. One favored vertical of this type is the weeklys Sep 27 $16/$14 put spread for 50 cents. Unlike short stock, a bearish vertical spread can control and reduce risk to the debit paid and offer big-time profits in the event iQIYI stock trades aggressively lower.Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in any securities mentioned in this article.
