I've been following Tencent for the past 3 months and wondering if others have taken position.

Like Alibaba, are there concerns that their accounting practices may be "cooked"?

From Bloomberg May 17, 2017
China’s largest internet company posted record quarterly sales and profit that topped all analysts’ estimates as blockbuster titles including Honour of Kings drove a billion-plus users on WeChat and QQ to spend on game items. Chairman Pony Ma’s strategy of stockpiling rights to hit anime and novels and developing shows in-house is transforming the company into a hybrid Marvel Studios-Netflix style content factory.

Also what are the pros/cons of buying TCEHY v. TCTZF?

Re: Tencent

Up 7.5% since i initially posted about TCEHY last week.

Seems like Tencent was somewhat overlooked compared to BABA, but is starting to pick-up momentum.

I'd be really interested to hear anyone's thoughts or positions on Tencent.

Considering adding to my long position.

Re: Tencent

I have been reading a lot of news on them the last few months (Live in HK) and it seems they are either going to be boom or bust, mentality wise. They seem to be aggressively relying on WeChat, where WeChat is in a transition phase of slowly charging more and more for marketing, so its reminding me similar to the ESPN saga, of each year the royalties to maintain the product suite is increasing.

On a side note the dip you saw on Monday was due to a fire next to their main office, some outside construction caused it, with no fault of Tencent, but I feel it clearly shows that any sign of trouble there is a Sell now attitude, which echoes my above point.

While I have been making steady gains in the Chinese/HK stock market, I have had a few of my positions completely wiped out by mass selling due to WeChat celebrity recommendations, there seems to be a much wider market of small investors (1,000 of this, 1,000 of this) when compared to traditional US based markets where funds own the majority. The only good news is the mandatory stock halts to stop the slide, otherwise your position could literally by 0.0001 in a few hours.

Also, the difference is dividend based: TCTZF pays dividends in HKD whilst TCEHY pays dividends in USD. Both tickers act in similar fashion, and no known analyst has been able to locate/predict any abnormality between the two.

Re: Tencent

How do they monetize League Of Legends? The Riot HQ is close to me and they've expanded their cult like crazy in recent years. (Tencent took them over about 18 months ago)
