- und daher habe ich mir nach dem Einstieg bei Alibaba, die inzwischem mehr als 20% gut gemacht haben, auch einige Rakutens gekauft.

Look Out Amazon, Here Comes...Rakuten?
Japanese e-commerce firm Rakuten announced on Tuesday it is acquiring Ebates for $1 billion.

The acquisition, which Rakuten hinted at last week, is part of the Japanese company?s push to grow its base beyond its domestic market and hopefully, become a global player. Having made some $1.2 billion acquisitions to date along these lines, this is Rakuten?s most ambitious move to date.

However, investors are dubious that the company can absorb yet another foreign acquisition, much less one the size of Ebates, despite Rakuten?s strong cash position.
Then there is the ever-present Amazon, which dominates the e-commerce market in the U.S. Few believe it will falter in the face of Chinese giant Alibaba, much less a Rakuten-Ebates combo.

Rakuten Goes Forth

Not surprisingly, Rakuten says it is undaunted. For starters, it has assembled a very interesting mix of acquisitions. There is messaging app Viber, which it purchased for $900 million in February, the Canadian ebook offering Kobo, Spanish video service Wuaki.tv, Viki, a digital content platform and Buy.com.
Now it has picked up Ebates.

Lyft Stock?s Dip Is a Gift to Investors

Much like its more famous rideshare rival Uber (NYSE:UBER), Lyft is in the crosshairs of analysts as well as traders big and small. Nobody, it seems, likes Lyft at the moment. I?m more than willing to defend the apparently indefensible and I see a bright and expansive future for Lyft and for the rideshare market as a whole.

Uber?s Troubles Spill Over to Lyft Stock
Recent downward pressures on the LYFT stock price are the result of what?s known as the ?sympathy effect.? When a famous stock in an industry tanks, oftentimes owners of similar stocks in the same industry will panic and dump their shares. This is irrational behavior. And, I believe that it?s also a prime buying opportunity when the sympathy effect causes a stock?s price to fall.

Furthermore, the equity method is applied to the investment in Altiostar Networks, Inc. (hereafter ?Altiostar?) which was acquired in the three months ended June 30, 2019. The Rakuten Group?s stockholding and voting rights exceed 50%, but the board of directors, a key decision-making body whose composition in agreed on between stockholders, is such that the Rakuten Group does not have control and therefore a determination has been made that Altiostar is not a subsidiary.

about Rakuten Mobile again and again in the past and continue:


Rakuten had published the following about the strategy to introduce mobile:

"And we will take a 3-step approach. First, we would make the assurance about absolute stability in the first step that will take place in October as a small launch. And then although we are 100% confident, we want to see the result. And then online large-scale campaign would be introduced. And then there will be a major campaign and launch in the third step. Because the worst case scenario that would be the down or failure of network. And therefore -- that's why we decided to take 3-step approaches. I expected such a question to come out. And with this, I'd like to conclude today's meeting."


I believe that such a strategy makes sense, but the nonsense-interpreation of Nikkei Asia Review is: ?Rakuten will scale back the start of the mobile network.?

Lyft looks to connect NYC 'food deserts' with grocery stores, farmers markets

Lyft is partnering with GrowNYC and its community partner, BMS Family Health and Wellness Centers, to try to improve access to healthy food for some New Yorkers.

The three organizations are launching the "Grocery Access Program" that, in its first phase, is expected to help up to 200 families that have difficulty accessing full-service grocery stores and farmers markets in Brownsville, Brooklyn.

The goal is to minimize the negative impacts of "food deserts" by making it easier, faster, and less expensive for residents in these areas to shop at farmers? markets.

In 2018, more than 16,000 New Yorkers used food stamps at GrowNYC markets, resulting in 50,265 visits and $1 million in sales.

Lyft expects to expand the program to other major metro areas as well.

49632 Postings, 5351 Tage LibudaMove to a high-quality, conservative play

With markets a bit on edge as U.S.-China tensions rise, it makes sense to move to a high-quality, conservative play that is in an uptrend with plenty of upside potential, suggests international investing expert Carl Delfeld, editor of Cabot Global Stocks Explorer.

Rakuten (RKUNY) is a well-diversified conglomerate with tentacles throughout Japan that has plenty of running room for international expansion.

Many of you may not have heard of Rakuten but I assure you that very few Japanese are not part of its ecosystem in multiple ways.

Its loyalty membership program is more than 100 million strong and it is Japan?s #1 internet bank, #1 credit card and one of the country?s leading travel platforms.

Rakuten?s core business is as an internet sales platform akin to Amazon. The company?s market share in Japan is about 25% ? roughly equal to Amazon?s market share. Next comes Yahoo Japan at around 15%.

Recently, Rakuten?s early investment in Lyft (13% of shares) has bolstered earnings, and it has a strategic alliance with Wal-Mart.

Rakuten already has a large number of e-commerce cloud sites built with high-speed fiber connections in Japan. This offers RKUNY natural expansion capabilities into virtual mobile networks and 5G. If successful, this investment will put RKUNY in a strong position in Japanese telecoms.

49632 Postings, 5351 Tage LibudaRakuten wird m.E. auch nicht eine Aktie von Lyft


The Rakuten Group?s investment in Lyft, Inc. (hereafter Lyft) stock, which was originally accounted for as a financial instrument measured at fair value through profit or loss, will as of the accounting period for the six months ended June 30, 2019, be accounted for through the adoption of the equity method. This is due to, amongst other considerations, the Rakuten Group?s stockholding and voting rights in Lyft which, while below 20%, because of factors such as its stockholding and active involvement on the board of directors through its appointed director (also a director of the Rakuten Group) etc., enable the Rakuten Group to exert significant influence on Lyft. Further, due to factors such as agreements with Lyft, it is not practically feasible to align reporting periods, and consequently the equity method will be applied in the Rakuten Group?s consolidated financial statements with a three-month difference in reporting periods.

By Samantha Loveday
July 3, 2019

Initial focus will be on app?s key markets such as Russia and the Philippines. Leading messaging app Viber ? which connects over one billion users around the globe ? is looking to make the move into the licensing space.

Viber is aiming to move its sticker characters ? Violet, Legcat, Lola, Freddie, Eve and Rocco ? into licensed product. The characters are part of Viber?s sticker ecosystem with around 20 billion stickers sent in 2018.

The move comes after Viber conducted user surveys in three of its top markets ? Russia, the Philippines and Iraq ? with the findings revealing that products featuring the characters would be well received. For example, in Russia over 83% of users showed willingness to own Viber-branded products such as apparel (40%), stationery (31%) and Pop items (32%). In the Philippines, the figure was over 85% and in Iraq, over 93%.

?We?re thrilled to announce that for the very first time Viber ? a messaging platform with over 1 billion registered users ? will be bringing its successful sticker characters to the licensing world,? Matan Kaufman, global product marketing director at Viber told Source.
