Ep. 14: Xiaomi: Bull or Bear? A Post-IPO Debate

Xiaomi’s recent IPO in Hong Kong was the world’s biggest tech IPO since Alibaba’s in 2014, but will it soar in the stock market and become the Apple of China? Listen to the first ever debate on TechBuzz China and take your position as a bear or a bull on the new stock.

TechBuzz China by Pandaily is a weekly technology podcast focused on giving you a peek into what’s buzzing within the tech community in China. It is co-hosted by Ying-Ying Lu and Rui Ma, who are both seasoned China watchers with years of experience working in the technology space in China. They uncover and contextualize unique insights, perspectives, and takeaways on headline tech news that don’t always make it into English language coverage.

Our co-hosts Ying-Ying and Rui take opposite positions on the future of Xiaomi, an eight-year old company founded by billionaire entrepreneur Lei Jun. They battle it out on whether Xiaomi is an internet company with hundreds of companies within its ecosystem and lots of potential, or simply a smartphone maker whose limitations are set by Lei’s promise of making no more than 5 percent profit on all hardwares.

Interested in investing in the company led by the Steve Jobs of China? Listen to the newest episode of TechBuzz China to find out what really goes on inside the “Apple of China”.
