A new video-streaming player has recently come public. What is its competitive strategy?
Wedbush analyst Dan Ives says that Apple should have purchased Netflix years ago to get ahead of the streaming wars.
Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU), the Chinese tech giant that owns the country's largest online search engine, launched its online video platform iQiyi (NASDAQ: IQ) in 2010. Baidu spun off iQiyi in an IPO in 2018 but retained a majority stake in the company, which still generated 28% of its total revenue in fiscal 2020. In the past, that relationship was beneficial because iQiyi's stronger revenue growth offset the ongoing declines in Baidu's core advertising business.
