Guru Investment Theses on SINA Corp

Matthews China Fund Comments on Sina - Jul 24, 2014

So far this year, our holdings in this area did not work well and the overall IT sector performance was dragged down especially by two small-cap companies—Sina Corp (SINA) and Digital China Holdings. Sina, one of China’s most popular web portals, came under selling pressure due to market concerns that its Twitter-like online communications services Weibo, may be losing its growth momentum to a main competitor. However, we continue to hold Sina as we believe the target market for its competitor is different from Weibo and we also believe Sina’s current valuation does not reflect its other attractive underlying assets.

Baron Funds Comments on Sina Corporation - May 29, 2014

Sina Corporation (SINA) is a leading Chinese Internet portal and the majority owner of SINA Weibo, the largest Twitter-like microblogging service in China. Sina was a detractor in the first quarter due to concerns over slowing user growth, as well as the dilutive impact of the pending IPO of Weibo, where Alibaba exercised its option to increase its stake in Weibo from 18% to 30%. We continue to own shares in Sina, as we believe Weibo is worth more than its current embedded valuation.

Baron Funds Comments on Sina Corporation - Nov 26, 2013

Shares of Sina Corporation (SINA) were up 45.6% in the third quarter. Sina operates a leading Chinese Internet portal and owns Sina Weibo, the largest Twitter- like service in China. We believe performance in the third quarter was due to the acceleration of Sina Weibo monetization, as well as strong second quarter earnings, where the company beat expectations and issued above-Street guidance. Further, the recently announced alliance between Sina Weibo and Alibaba Group appears to be progressing on-track. (Catherine Chen)

SINA Corp was founded in March 1999 through the merger of Beijing SINA Information Technology Co., Ltd. and California-based SINANET.com. In April 2000, our company completed the initial public offering. The Company is an online media company serving China and the global Chinese communities. The Company's digital media network of SINA.com (portal), SINA mobile (mobile portal and mobile apps) and Weibo (social media) enables Internet users to access professional media and user generated content ("UGC") in multi-media formats from desktop personal computers and mobile devices and share their interests with friends and acquaintances. SINA.com offers distinct and targeted professional content on each of its region-specific websites and a full range of complementary offerings. Over the years, it has built a broad content network with thousands of professional media partners and accumulated a large mainstream user base, including well-educated, white-collar professionals. The Company's mobile portal, SINA.cn, provides news information and entertainment content from SINA.com customized for mobile users in WAP (mobile browser) and mobile application format, such as SINA News, SINA Sports, SINA Finance, SINA Entertainment and SINA Blog. Weibo is a social media platform for people to create, distribute and discover Chinese-language content. Based on an open platform architecture, Weibo allows users to create and post feeds up to 140 Chinese characters and attach multi-media content, as well as access a wide range of organically and third-party developed applications, such as online games. The Company offers both brand advertising services in display ad formats on SINA portal and Weibo, as well as performance-based online marketing solutions on Weibo, such as promoted feeds. SINA.com offers a variety of free interest-based channels that provide region-focused format and content. The popular channels include: SINA Sports, SINA Auto, SINA Finance, SINA Entertainment, SINA News, SINA Technology, SINA Digital, SINA eLadies, SINA Luxury, SINA Collectibles and SINA Video. The Company operated three principal business segments — advertising, MVAS and other non-advertising.
