Shinsei Corporate Management Analysts Says Tencent has Room to Grow

TOKYO, June 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Shinsei Corporate Management Analysts have said that the Shenzhen-based Tencent could head to new highs in coming months, possibly overtaking records set in late January.

So far this year, its shares have shed $70 billion in value, a stronger bear run than the rest of the technology industry, as markets priced in the costs of the Tencent's massive spending spree.

"We've yet to eclipse the high in the owner of WeChat, so I take current drop, which comes amid apparent profit-taking among heavyweights, as a short-term positive. We should be able to move up and break through the recent highs," said Muranaka Ryushi, Head of Research at Shinsei Corporate Management.

Despite the challenges, the Chinese e-commerce company is still a consumer staple and the business of making it is largely recession-proof. Tencent is particularly attractive because of its bargain valuation and because its recent metrics were also led by the company's forays into ‎multiple markets.

The majority of analysts on Wall Street have a buy rating on Tencent and an average HK$455 price target, according to according to the average of 11 estimates compiled by Bloomberg. That target implies 6 percent upside to Tuesday's close.

There are some Tencent bears, though, including Citigroup Inc. and Deutsche Bank AG, which have lowered their sales or earnings expectations over the near and long term. The company's fundamentals give some brokers a reason to feel bearish in 2018.

Specifically, recent reports suggest that rising costs and investments will hurt profitability at Asia's biggest listed company, which has a market capitalization of roughly $560 billion.

Analysts at Shinsei Corporate Management are also concerned that Tencent could sacrifice margins in the next years to spur future growth, yet it won't able to generate enough cash from its new ventures to offset a decline in its established segments.

"One thing I would caution though, is Tencent tends to be a short-term proxy for weak performance in PC games coupled with weaker ad seasonality," says Michael Brooks, Head of Sales & Trading at Shinsei Corporate Management.

The Shenzhen-based firm, which is one of world's most valuable ‎technology giants, runs China's most popular social-networking platforms, with more one billion million ‎users, mostly in mainland.

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform?

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
