Discussion of market conditions

Dear investor,

We would like to begin our third quarterly report by remembering the victims of Covid-19 and their families, and showing our gratitude to everyone who continues to fight against the virus. We would also like to send out a message of hope to those members of society most affected by the pandemic. The scientific community is closer to finding a solution so we can overcome this threat, protecting not only our lives but also returning life to normal. At a time like this, it seems fitting to recall the French writer Luc de Clapiers who said that patience

These companies have highly predictable business

Based on a 10-year study that GuruFocus conducted for the period from 1998 to 2008, we can define predictable businesses as enterprises where a consistent growth in their revenue per share and Ebitda per share is reflected in a strong long-term performance of the stocks.

Thus, stocks with a high GuruFocus business predictability rating could boost your chances of success with a "buy and hold" approach. Value investors may be interested in the following three companies, as they have high business predictability ratings.

Fiserv Inc

The first company that makes the cut is Fiserv Inc (FISV), a Brookfield, Wisconsin-based

Q&A notes from Chang Jing's first lecture of the semester

In my previous article, I shared my notes for the lecture part of Chang Jing's first lecture, given as part of the Value Investing Course at Peking University. Below are my notes from the question and answers section that followed the lecture.

Q1: Hillhouse's Zhang Lei has said that moat should be dynamic and the only moat is the dynamic creation of long term value. What do you make of this?

There's some truth in this statement in that moats should be dynamic. But whether the moat should be crazy value creation and whether a business can create

How the strategies of these gurus differ from each other

During the past month, I've written extensively about two of the best value investors in the world – Himalaya's Li Lu and Hillhouse's Zhang Lei. From their case studies, it is clear that they are very different investors, although both place deep fundamental research at the core of their investment process.

Li Lu is very much like Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio). He started with the classic Benjamin Graham style investing, looking for cheap securities, and he believed that it was the only choice because when you first start investing, you don't have enough experience and you don't

The stock is up more than 6.7%

Shares of Chinese social media giant Weibo Corp. (WB) popped more than 6.7% on Monday after the company's second-quarter results beat expectations.

Weibo's parent company, Sina Corp, (SINA), which will be exiting the U.S. stock market in the first quarter of 2021, also saw its stock rise by more than 6%. Sina is going private after accepting a $2.6 billion offer from CEO Charles Chao.

Despite the sharp rise, the stock remains more than 30% down this year. This suggests that there could be an opportunity to extend Monday's gains in

Hillhouse's research methodology

"Time is a friend of great businesses and great entrepreneurs."

- Zhang Lei

On Zhang Lei's bookshelf, there was another book that stood out to me – "Security Analysis" (1934 edition) by Benjamin Graham and David Dodd.

This is likely surprising to many people because few, if any, associate Zhang with Ben Graham. In fact, Hillhouse's investments often befuddle value investors because Hillhouse is more than willing to bet big on companies with no current net earnings (such as JD.com (JD)) and sometimes even without current revenue (as is the case with BeiGene (BGNE)). Therefore,

Zhang Lei on long-termism

A natural optimistic entrepreneur, Zhang Lei founded Hillhouse Capital on June 1, 2005. More than fifteen years later, Hillhouse has become one of the largest and most successful investment firms in Asia. When describing Hillhouse, Zhang has famously said that "we are entrepreneurs who happen to be investors." Like Buffett and Li Lu, Zhang Lei is a value investor who's known for his deep research and super long term orientation. Unlike Buffett and Li Lu, Zhang Lei's success has largely come from big bets on industries that are going through rapid changes such as internet and biotech.

Personally, I have

Remote work spurs on the desire for automation

In the midst of the ongoing pandemic, several companies are working to further develop their artificial intelligence technologies, known as AI, to aid in a variety of different fields. These companies include Nvidia Corp. (NVDA), Salesforce.com Inc. (CRM), Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN), Twilio Inc. (TWLO) and Tencent Holdings Ltd. (TCEHY).

Through the pandemic, companies have rapidly moved their employees to remote work to avoid contact and reduce the spread of the virus. This move has spurred on the development of AI technologies as an aid to human workers. The pursuit of AI technology covers a wide range of applications, from deep

The fund will help mitigate the regulatory risk of investing in US-listed Chinese companies

Investing in Chinese companies has never been easy for U.S. investors. Over the last couple of years, this exercise has become even more complicated as a result of trade tensions between the U.S. and China.

Things were taking a positive turn last December when the two nations signed a preliminary trade deal to reach some middle ground. In the last few weeks, however, the tensions have once again resurfaced due to geopolitical uncertainties. To add salt to the wound, Luckin Coffee (LK), the Chinese coffee giant that was expected to make it big in the coming years, revealed in April

We remain concerned with the growth strategy and competitive landscape despite our respect for the longtime success of the business and its founder

With a mission to “build connections,” Tencent Holdings Ltd. (HKSE:00700) is the world’s largest gaming company, China’s largest social media platform (mainly consisting of QQ and WeChat), one of the world’s largest internet companies and one of its largest investment companies.

It is hard but rewarding for a brand to verb up

“Consider the fact that the word Google is now an official entry in the Oxford English Dictionary - as a verb. Don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen to Bing.” – Peter Thiel

It is an extremely challenging feat for a brand to “verb up” or “verb down” (once verbified). Just think about the online search space. For more than a decade, we have always "Googled" something we didn't know, but we never "Binged", even though the flagship search engine by Microsoft (MSFT) was named in such a way that it could easily get verbified (e.g.,

Tokyo-based Kakaku.com Inc. (TSE:2371) is a major Internet conglomerate in Japan. It owns and operates a range of platforms and services, which are categorized into three business segments – Internet Media, New Media/Solutions and Finance.

The retirement giant has incredibly high fees when compared to Vanguard and other low-fee providers

I was quite surprised to see how high the fees are at TIAA. As you may know, the large money manager is very prevalent at universities throughout the U.S. Having such a strong reputation, I assumed the fees would be closer to Vanguard. They are not even close.

TIAA-CREF started off in 1910 as the Teachers and Insurance and Annuity Association of America. The College Retirement Equities Fund was founded in 1952. The company dropped CREF from its name in 2016. TIAA serves 5 million participants, has $1 trillion in assets and is the provider at 15,000 institutions.
