Snowball Finance (雪球财经)- An Online Community of Value Investors

  1. 1. An Online Community of Value Investors Life is like a snowball. The important thing is finding wet snow and a really long hill. –Warren Buffet
  2. 2. About Snowball Finance Snowball Finance (雪球财经) is a digital mediacompany for investors. Snowball operates two sites: Xueqiu is a social community site. Investors share ideas with fellow investors, catch breaking news, and follow their favorite stocks. iMeigu is a financial news portal. It is leading source of Chinese-language information about the US stock market.
  3. 3. About Xueqiu is a social community for investors in publicly-traded companies in the US, Hong Kong, and mainland China (A-shares). Xueqiu means snowball in Chinese.
  4. 4. Inside Xueqiu Inside Xueqiu Upon log-in, Xueqiu is a customizable dashboard for investors Top news Home My stocks My profile Comments @ me DMs Saved Top movers Following Followers Add stocks My record Share Social Newsfeed The core of Xueqiu is the social newsfeed Recommended users
  5. 5. Xueqiu Social Newsfeed The core of Xueqiu is the social newsfeed. All info appears in a microblog format, but can be expanded to show a longer post, images, and rich discussion. Here’s an example, translated from the original Chinese: Sina (NASDAQ: SINA) presents a good buying opportunity, it’s near a one-year low, market cap is less than $5 billion Share to: Shares (11) | Saves | Comments (19) Rather than $75, the real low should be closer to $50-60. If you take into account cash-on-hand and portalsite revenues, plus the weibo microblog that’s about the lowest. The market is pessimistic. Weibo is worth no less than $10 to $15, cash is $10, and portal is $30-40. Sothat’s your $60. The most difficult part of the equation to assess is clearly the weibo, product, but so far sogood.
