Updates on the performance of Bigo, which YY acquired in March, will also be worth watching. YY faces stiff competition in China from the likes of Momo, TikTok and Tencent Music Entertainment.

In the first quarter of 2019, YY reported revenue that topped expectations and earnings that were in line with estimates. Revenues rose 47% to $705.3 million while adjusted EPS totaled $1.38.

Global video and live streaming average mobile monthly active users (MAU) reached over 400 million in Q1, of which over 75% were from outside China. Average mobile MAU increased by 65.6% to 59.8 million.

YY’s shares have dropped over 8% thus far this year and 21% in the past one month. The stock has an average 12-month price target of $76.55.
