The stock price of the company spiraled downwards after seeing pre-market gains touch 7%. The regular trading session on 6th November saw YY Inc’s stock fall by 11%. We believe the market reaction has been largely due to the negative sentiment surrounding Chinese companies following the recent controversy regarding NQ mobile, the Chinese mobile security company. We are positive about the stock bouncing from the lows it hit in yesterday’s trading session.
