Yet – as some investors wisdom goes – inside of every risk lies an opportunity. Therefore, in this stock review, we will analyse Tencent which is the worlds largest company in the area of gaming, social media and online marketing.

Qualitative Analysis

Tencent Company History

Tencent Product Portfolio
Illustration 1: Tencent Product Portfolio
Tencent was co-founded in 1998 by Ma Hauteng and Zhang Zhidong. Ma Hauteng still serves as the CEO of Tencent and Zhang Zhidong is the company’s Chief Technology Officer. Tencent gained fast popularity among a wider public in Asia due to its first breakthrough product, “Tencent QQ” – an online instant messenger similar to ICQ, which enabled Tencent to generate profits almost immediately. Over the years, Tencent expanded its business continuously and started several joint ventures (for instance with Cisco Systems). Additionally, Tencent acquired Riot Games, the original creator of “League Of Legends” and owns about 5% in shares of Activision Blizzard.
Yet, Tencent did not only stick to the gaming industry in its expansion efforts. Over the years, Tencent acquired additional holdings in the Future Mobility Corporation (Electronic Car development) as well as a 5% of the shares of Tesla. Additionally, the company acquired Lflix, which is also referred to as the “Asian Netflix”. Further shareholdings include Spotify (7.5 %), Snapchat (12.1 %) and Ubisoft (5 %). Due to its acquisitions in companies across various industries, Tencent has evolved to sort of a Conglomerate in the technological sector.
