QD - Chinese Microloan Unicorn. +100% upside potential
2. Traders are scared of "data leak"+"regulation" will bring company down to zero. Thats why company lost 30% valuation on premarket. And got back to -3% in same day.
3. China wants to regulate "micro-loan industry". That was played out , but it is actually . China wants to BAN small and bad companies - competitors of QD. Means more profits for QD in future.
4. No serious risks in China Crysis in near term future (look at Tencent report), economics might actually boost from here and now.
This will eventually end up 30+. When? don't know, but i think here is the bottom.
And this still played out bearish, because of future earnings will be lower.
But now we all know that company will do everything (and fast) to present on the market as a leader. I still think thats an opportunity.
Will try to Buy this after downgrades.
Current Price Targets are irrelevant:
Nov-20-17 Initiated Needham Buy $30
Nov-15-17 Initiated Stifel Buy $35
Nov-15-17 Initiated Morgan Stanley Equal-Weight $28.70
Nov-14-17 Initiated Macquarie Outperform $36
China gov. will make a statement this week about the whole microloan industry.
First downgrades came out:
Nov-24-17 Reiterated Macquarie Outperform $36 >> $24 (ha ha, with credit rate slash from 36%/y to 24%/y)
Waiting for more downgrades to come + "sell the rumors buy the facts" thing.
Still waiting to buy, no reversal seen on the chart.
Stifel analyst, John Davis, reiterated his Buy rating on shares of Qudian (NYSE: QD) but cut his price target to $19 from $35
