The stock prices of China’s big internet companies fell Friday after the country’s legislative body adopted a new, strict privacy law to come into force on November 1.
Alibaba shares were down 2.6%, with Tencent Music falling 3% before recovering later in the day. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index fell 1.8% and the CSI 300 composite of Chinese blue chips dropped 2%.
A report by the official Xinhua News Agency said that the law was voted by the National People’s Congress and promulgated immediately by president Xi Jinping.
Its passage marks another step in the Chinese government and regulators’ crackdown on the country’s biggest internet companies, tightening the regulation of cyberspace and strengthening compliance requirements, to better protect user privacy.
Chinese authorities in early July announced a cybersecurity probe of Didi, the ride-hailing app, just three days after the company started listing on the New York Stock Exchange. The stock price is down 49% since then.

Compared to other social media stocks, Pinterest (NYSE:PINS) stock is a bit of an oddball. I personally don’t have much use for the platform, but I can see the appeal … somewhat. After all, we could all use a daily dose of inspiration for shopping, relaxing, business and marketing purposes. Still, I’m not the only one who doesn’t quite “get it.”

Want to be like Warren Buffett? That’s easier said than done, as you’d have to believe in companies that investors are largely avoiding. Right now, Pinterest (NYSE:PINS) fits that description. But could PINS stock be a Warren Buffett type of play?

Pinterest (NYSE:PINS) stock still looks very undervalued even though it has fallen 29.5% from a recent high close of $80.29 on July 6. This is based on the company’s recent earnings and the fact that it produced significant free cash flow (FCF). At a closing price of $56.59 on Sept. 3, PINS stock is still worth at least 43.4% more at $81.15 based on my revised calculations of its FCF earnings power.

If you are looking for a dividend stock, using a 3% yield hurdle is a pretty low bar. There are a lot of companies that offer that level of yield without needing to take on huge risks. That said, if you’re willing to do a little digging, you can do better than that without taking on material extra risk. Three stocks yielding way more than 3% that are worth a deep dive right now are integrated energy Goliath ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), diversified midstream major ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE), and food giant General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS).
