Print Email

Today we’ll get to see earnings out both Sina Corp. (NASDAQ: SINA) and Netease.com Inc. (NASDAQ: NTES).

Sina Corp. (NASDAQ: SINA) estimates for the Chinese online media company from First Call are $0.33 EPS on $69.14 million in revenues.  Next quarter estimates are $0.26 EPS on $65.87 million in revenues. Estimates for fiscal 2008 are $1.49 EPS on $333.86 million in revenues.

Analysts have an average price target north of $55.00 on Sina.  Options trading looks a bit difficult to use for a prediction too, but the pricing-in range looks to be a move of $1.90 to $2.75 in either direction.  Sina’s stock currently sits right under its 50 and 200-day moving averages, which are $43.07 and $44.12 respectively. 

Sina’s shares were down less than 1% in early afternoon trading at $42.95, and Sina Corp.’s 52-week trading range is $31.19 to $59.27

Netease.com Inc. (NASDAQ: NTES) estimates for the Chinese interactive online and wireless company from First Call are $0.30 EPS on $75.9 million in revenues.  Next quarter estimates are $0.30 EPS on $76.44 million in revenues. Estimates for fiscal 2008 are $1.24 EPS on $328.46 million in revenues.

Analysts have an average price target north of $22 on Netease.  Options are a bit of a guessing game, but it looks like traders are braced for a move of up to $0.50 to $0.68 in either direction.  The chart here may play some influence as well, as its shares have just recently gotten above the $18.15 200-day moving average and the 50-day moving average is $18.75.            

Netease shares were down almost 2% in early afternoon trading at $18.34, and its 52-week trading range is $13.45 to $24.00.

Keep in mind that Baidu.com (NASDAQ: BIDU) has already reported earnings last week, and its shares are down roughly 4% since that report.  That being said, these two could still influence Chinese web and Chinese tech stocks that trade in the U.S. tomorrow.
