Chinese Internet Stocks to Watch: (BIDU), (UMEWF), (YOKU) and the Chinese Online Video Market

New York, NY / Point Roberts, WA - June 20, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com staff: Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors issues a snapshot for the online Chinese video market and some of the publicly traded companies in the space. The big players are targeting the growing online and mobile market in China with acquisitions and strategic partnering, while new start-up company UMeWorld (OTCQB: UMEWF) is aiming for its audience with foreign content.

Search engine company Baidu, Inc. (NasdaqGS: BIDU), currently with the largest online video platform, announced in May its acquisition of the online video business of leading Internet video provider PPS for US $370 million.
Baidu and PPS expect the transaction to close in the second quarter of 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. Upon completion of the transaction, the PPS online video business will be consolidated into Baidu's financial statements. PPS's online video business will be merged with Baidu's own video platform iQiyi.
UMeWorld (OTCQB: UMEWF) operates UMeLook (www.umelook.com), an online video platform focused on bringing foreign video content to China. UMeLook is deployed through a sophisticated CDN (Content Delivery Network) with broad coverage throughout Mainland China, Hong Kong & Taiwan. UMeLook plans to be a source of foreign video content for the Chinese viewer across any Internet-enabled device within China. UMeWorld intends to focus its future operations on digital media and the digital education market.
According to a recent press release from the company, "China has a population of 550 million "webizens," many of whom are glued to tablets or smartphones as they make their daily commute; mobile Web users last year totaled 420 million, an increase of nearly 18% from the previous year. However, the competition for "eyeballs" is fierce. Unlike many local online video companies who focus on local TV series and movies, UMeLook is uniquely positioned to provide foreign UGC video content of 3 to 8 minutes duration. UMeLook is targeting Chinese viewers between the ages of 18 and 45 years old who are interested in foreign information, products and brands.”
A recent report from www.iresearchchina.com notes, "Revenue of China online video attained 2.42 billion Yuan in Q1 2013, with a year on year growth of 39.5% and a quarter on quarter drop of 11.0% influenced by decreasing seasonal advertising. As the online video markets are gradually driven by multi-devices, commercialization of mobile internet will affect whole video industry in the future.”
Youku Tudou (NYSE: YOKU) recently signed a deal with SINA Corporation (NasdaqGS: SINA) to promote its video content on PC and mobile platforms.
Youku Tudou reported, "Under the deal, in exchange for access to Youku Tudou's video library, SINA will leverage their PC and mobile platform to promote Youku Tudou's licensed content to its users on Weibo. The multi-screen strategic collaboration also draws on huge gains in mobile traffic for both companies – 76% of Weibo's daily active users access Weibo through mobile devices, while Youku Tudou counts 170 million daily mobile views.”

Social Media Stock News: UMeLook (OTC: UMEWF) Prepares to Launch SmartStar Cloud-Based Adaptive Learning Education Platform

HONG KONG - June 10, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) UMeWorld Limited ( OTCQB: UMEWF) is pleased to announce the beta launch of SmartStar in China, a cloud-based, adaptive learning education platform, under its digital education business division. Unlike traditional online courseware, SmartStar provides a concept-level assessment and evaluation of a student's learning progress. It identifies the student's strengths, weaknesses, their proficiency in a given subject area and personalizes the delivery of proprietary educational items according to the student's learning needs. SmartStar is also capable of providing scoring and statistical analysis of exams and evaluations and to provide administration of local and nationally standardized exams. It is ideal for schools and teachers.

SmartStar will be available through a monthly subscription, enabling the user to have unlimited access via the internet. UMeWorld is in discussions with several national distributors who will offer SmartStar pre-paid cards that can be used against a monthly subscription.
"SmartStar is on track to become a leading education service provider in China," said Michael Lee, CEO of UMeWorld. "The K-12 education system in China is the largest in the world comprising 230 million students and 12 million teachers. Chinese families spend more discretionary income on education than anything other expense, except for housing. The educational landscape in China is highly competitive. Schools dictate entrance requirements for students. This motivates parents to ensure that their children have access to the best educational tools. SmartStar is one such tool."
