  • Dangdang Crushes Earnings: Looks Like The Glory Days Are Finally Back [View article]
    I agree Justin.

    With the current growth this stock should be trading far higher. The estimates for earinings for this 1Q 2014 are far too conservative and likely to
    be beaten.

    Looks like the correction since the p/s $18, has been far overdone, at a very conservative forward 2015 EPS of 0.60 the p/e is only around 25.

    I read some analysts prediction that $DANG could have EPS of 1,80 around 2016, with a price to earnings of 30, this is a price for share of $50. My advise for everybody holding is to leave it as a speculative long term player.

    Holding 6.230 shares tighly with no intention to sell until the company derails from its growth.

    The growth possibility here is just too good to miss, it is a highly speculative player but for long term investors this could be of the best stocks to hold for the next 5 years.

    If the profit trend continues, it can easily be trading in the 20s by the end of the year.... The newly formed alliance with 1st shop, owned by Wallmart, should also help improve margins....

  • Dangdang issues Q3 warning, shares -8.7% AH [View news story]
    Seems like very good news. Company likely to be profitable in 1Q2014, much much earlier than analysts expected, margins improving nicely and losses being reduced big time. Reducing worthless revenue for better margin sales seems like a good long term strategy.

    Meanwhile as volume increases, next year Dang will be able to negotiate higher commissions with its third party merchants which have become the central part of it's revenue and its delivery companies will cost less money.

  • Dangdang beats by $0.02, beats on revenues [View news story]
    Short-term trading.

    The results are indeed very good. In 2Q gross profit has grown almost a 63% year over year, sales, customers and orders are also up nicely. Guidance is good. Mobile traffic and orders surge are very promising.

    The comission-based revenue of the market place program of the third party merchants will be far better exploited the following years. Now this revenue source is only in its infancy.

    Right now the comissions are very low (this is a short-term strategy to attract merchants to sell on Once sales volume increases and the third party merchants are more dependent on DangDang, the comissions will expand, and so will the margins.

    This really looks like a $ 10 B company in the making. So much potential here.

    Q3 guidance also a beat $ 259 M vs estimated $ 253.25 M.

  • Why Is Dangdang Becoming Multi-Functional? [View article]
    If the company consolidates the huge margin improvement, it could be breaking even by the end of the year, so I agree that within a year this could double the share price again.

  • Dangdang: 4 Reasons To Be Long [View article]
    With margins improving quarter over quarter DangDang will have sales of around $1.5B to $ 2B in 2015. Right now its market cap. is only 650 M $.

    2013 projected sales are $ 1.03B

    The company is very well positioned to be one the top 5 players dominating the future inmense chinese e-commerce space.

    Right now, only 500 milion people in China have access to internet yet this number could double by 2020. To that we have to add, the growth of the chinese middle class who will be the driving force of the world economy in the near term.

    I think it offers a great risk/reward ratio for a long term pick.

  • Dangdang Q1 2013 Earnings Preview [View article]
    Bank of China report predicts that the company will get a profit by mid 2014, one year before it was anticipated.

    If the predictions are correct, It will very likely surpass 10$ by the end of the year and it could go much much higher when it turns a profit.

    With its margins improving quarter over quarter; 2014 projected revenues are 1.35B $. Current market cap. is only 525M $, so it is trading at half its 2013 sales. In two to three years years this could be a $ 2-3B dollar company with share price of $ 24 - 36 . (Around 350-450 % gain with current share price)

    With 2013 expected revenue expected around 1,05B $ and margins improving quarter over quarter, this could be an amazing high flyer this year. An important chinese firm has already stated that in 3Q 2013 it can achieve breakeven.

  • Dangdang Q1 2013 Earnings Preview [View article]
    Amazing rally. !! This was and still is so undervalued. Today, the firm has stated that in 1Q2013, DangDang has already passed and and is only behind Jingdong, tencent and Suning in the self B2C players.

    Margins are execpted to dramatically improve the following quarters, thanks to the marketplace program.

    This could very well be an amazing high flyer in the near future.
