Wild Sina (SINA)

After being a superstar stock from late 2010 til spring 2011 on the back of its Twitter like offering Weibo, Sina (SINA) was crushed in this correction - falling by roughly half from its mid April highs in the mid $140s.  Indeed, the previous 12 sessions going into yesterday it had fallen in 11 of them, losing some $50.  Clearly this name was in the hands of the momo crowd.

But those type of selloffs lead to substantial oversold bounces, and moves like we saw yesterday keep bringing back speculators like a moth to a flame.  In one day Sina nearly advanced 20%, partly due to a reiteration of a positive rating.
  •  “The recent share sell-off offers a great entry point for investors,” Susquehanna International Group LLP analysts including C. Ming Zhao wrote in a report e-mailed to clients. They maintained a “positive” rating on Sina and a 12- month price target of $136.
For someone like myself, I'd rather see a more stable stock - since I do like this name long term.  But it appears, at least for now, Sina will remain a quite volatile name.
