What are Wall Street analysts saying about SINA stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about SINA stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "SINA is likely to benefit from the growing popularity of Weibo and a robust mobile user base in China. The company’s online payment business is also expected to boost non-Weibo revenues. The rapid adoption of smartphones and tablet devices, given the surge in 3G and 4G technology is expected to boost SINA’s growth. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past one year. However, uncertainty over advertising business and portal is preventing management from providing quarterly or yearly guidance. Increasing marketing spend on SINA news app and continuing investments in other verticals like Internet banking and insurance will weigh on margins. Additionally, competition within the online advertising business in China is fierce, which is a big threat." (1/24/2018)

Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We expect Sina's portal ad revenue to stabilize going into FY17 with the removal of Alibaba-related impact and a more favorable mobile traffic mix towards news app. We continue to see Sina as a value play with net cash and investment representing more than half of currently trading market cap.

SINA (NASDAQ:SINA) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
