What are analysts saying about Sina Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sina Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "SINA Corp reported second quarter 2017 results wherein both earnings and revenues grew year over year. However, we believe that uncertainty over its advertising business and portal, which is preventing management from providing quarterly guidance, doesn't augur well for investors. Further, we believe that continuing investments in Weibo and other verticals like Internet finance, automobile and sports will hurt profitability, going forward. SINA’s monetization efforts may see regulatory pressure due to restrictions imposed by the Chinese government, which may hurt subscriber growth. The company is also seeing some headwinds in regards to obtaining new media rights for sports in China. Nevertheless, the growing popularity of Weibo and a robust mobile user base in China remain positives for the company." (8/14/2017)
