Confident Investor comments: At this price and at this time, I do not think that a Confident Investor can confidently invest in SINA Corp. The biggest problem is the inability to reliably return value to shareholders. This is typical in young companies so the prospects for the future may be better than the current status of the company. If you want to have more risk in your portfolio, this may be a company for you but I cannot recommend it for the general audience.
