In the said letter, Tao Value highlighted a few stocks and Joyy Inc. (NASDAQ:YY) is one of them. Joyy Inc. (NASDAQ:YY) operates as a global social media platform. Year-to-date, Joyy Inc. (NASDAQ:YY) stock gained 42.9% and on July 29th it had a closing price of $76.32. Here is what Tao Value said:
“JOYY (ticker: YY) gained 66% in the past quarter. Main highlight is the fruition from the successful international expansion of entertaining live streaming model (Bigo). Bigo segment reported quarter revenue of 2.1b RMB, which is on par with the domestic YY Live segment, yet still on a 99% YoY growth trajectory. Management also commented that they could monetize effectively (sharing 45% revenue with hosts, lower than domestic practices) due to lack of competition. On short form video side (Likee), it seems like management conceded to the mighty TikTok and will focus on differentiated markets & segments.”
