Best China Companies To Buy Right Now

Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) performed 16 million more transactions during the second quarter than during the same period last year, but still managed to disappoint investors. Earnings per share have grown by 18% to 39 cents a share for a record Q2 $5 billion of revenue. However, net revenue fell short of the $5.03 billion Wall Street predicted. Last year the company earned 33 cents a share on revenue of $4.56 billion. But missing that revenue target caused SBUX stock to dip by over 4% after the earnings announcement.

Traction in China

“Starbucks record Q2 financial and operating performance including a stunning 18% increase in revenues and a 5% increase in transactions in China underscores the strength of the Starbucks brand and the resiliency of our global retail and CPG businesses. Loyalty, technology and innovation are continuing to fuel our digital flywheel and propel our business forward all around the world,” said CEO Howard Schultz.

    One of my favorites is Baidu (BIDU), the Chinese search-engine company. You may recall I selected Baidu as one of my favorite turnaround stocks at the beginning of 2013.

  • [By Vincent Ho]

    Baidu (BIDU) has made impressive gains in the last 3 months. There are some very insightful articles on SA that argue for a bullish stance based on valuations. There are other articles on SA which cover the recent acquisition of 91 Wireless. This article is different in that it offers an overview of Baidu’s business model in relation to its dependence on online advertising. Understanding the direction of the internet is important to predict future revenue growth. Significantly new competition from Qihoo (QIHU) is also something Baidu has never experienced before. There are doubts if Baidu has enough tools to clean up its act and regain market share.
