The report highlights Moxian's timely entrance into the online-to-offline (O2O) marketplace, which in China alone is experiencing 25 percent annual sales growth, and how the company stands to further benefit from the upcoming opening of new offices in the region.  "In our view, Moxian is entering the market at a particularly good time… Moxian perfected and tested its O2O platform in Asian markets and is targeting the largest metropolitan areas in China. The Company has earned modest revenue during the development and testing phase and appears poised to experience a dramatic increase in revenue from merchant subscriptions as the Company opens sales offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhuo in 2016.  Read the full Moxian (MOXC) Press Release at http://www.financialnewsmedia.com/profiles/moxc.html  -  Crystal Equity Research also details the company's business description, growth strategies, operating performance and multiple revenue sources, noting "We expect merchant fees to provide a significant source of recurring revenue for the Company that will be driven by the number of merchants participating in the platform … We also expect the Company to eventually earn revenue from the sale of advertising on the platform … Moxian can earn additional revenue through the sale of points ..."  As outline in the research report, Moxian's business strategies position the company for considerable market opportunity in the O2Osector in China, with all initiatives spearheaded by an experienced management team.

Weibo (NASDAQ: WB), the "Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) of China," has much in common with the best growth stocks.

Weibo hasn't yet set a date for its Q4 and full-year results.  Meanwhile, Weibo is showing technical strength as it works on a cup-with-handle base with a buy point at 20.66.
