NetEase has seen growth rebound in 2014, with a significant improvement in growth rates, after growing at a relatively slower pace for a couple of years. In spite of the marginal decline in operating and net margins in 2014, profit margins are robust, with net margins coming in at 41% for the year.
NetEase has healthy cash flows, with operating cash flows at 1.2 times net income, and a free cash flow margin of 111%. The NetEase price to earnings ratio of 17.8 is attractive when compared to the industry average of 33.8. That said, given that its price to sales multiple of 7.3 is higher than the industry average, conservative investors would do well to buy this stock on dips.
