CEO Cussion Kar Shun Pang pointed to online music and social-entertainment services as the two growth areas for the company. Its investments in premium content, innovative products, and proprietary technology drove its recent growth. This year, it will build on that strategy while accelerating the promotion of its premium content.Premium content can increase the company's profit. If Tencent Music can get a higher percentage of revenue from premium content while attracting more customers, expect its earnings growth to accelerate in the quarters ahead, boosting Tencent Music stock.TME's investments in its partnerships are paying off. By joining forces with domestic and international music labels, Tencent Music broadens its appeal to its customers. Proprietary, in-house content that caters to users' demands will also boost TME's growth, further differentiating the company from its competitors and lifting Tencent Music stock. Mobile Growth ExpectationsTME reported 27 million paying users of its online services, representing growth of 39.2% year-over-year. The number of the company's paying social-entertainment users grew by 22.9% to 10.2 million.

And so far, TME has proved that it has the right balance of producing content in-house, partnering with others, and discovering other innovative ways to promote its products. Higher CostsInvestors should not ignore TME's costs. In Q4, its cost of revenue grew 62.5% as its content fees and its revenue-sharing fees rose.

"Our revenue mix is getting increasingly diversified, with fast growth from performance-based advertising and 'other' revenues," Tencent President Martin Lau said on Thursday. Lau was referring to a segment that included Tencent's new cloud business, which posted its first annual revenue of 9.1 billion yuan ($1.36 billion).
