Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Naspers Ltd., Africa’s largest media group, fell to its lowest close in more than two weeks after Tencent Holdings Ltd., the Chinese Internet company in which it has a 34 percent stake, missed analysts’ estimates for third- quarter profit after increasing spending to develop new services.

The stock retreated 2.8 percent to 369.13 rand at the 5 p.m. end of trading in Johannesburg, the lowest closing price since Oct. 21.
