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 (NASDAQ: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.

Matthews China Fund Comments on Kingdee International Software Group and SINA Corp
Within information technology, our long-term approach of investing in smaller, quality companies has done well. Kingdee International Software Group (HKSE:00268), a firm focused on enterprise resource planning systems, and Sina (NASDAQ:SINA), a Chinese version of Twitter, are among two such companies that contributed most to Fund performance. Both companies belong to the small-capitalization category and fell under much selling pressure last year amid concerns that smaller companies would struggle under a slowing and uncertain business environment. However, the two companies were able to withstand the headwinds and eventually boost their underlying business. Read more...
