Warren Buffet would be proud of me if he’d knew how greedy I currently am for BABA.

Just keep in mind that IF the Evergrande situation gets worse, Alibaba’s stock will likely be falling A LOT harder than amazon stock.

And to top that of, If the Chinese government feels like putting in a few more regulatory crackdowns on a whim It could hurt Alibaba a lot (like it did in the last year).

That being said, Personally I feel like Chinese stocks are always going to more of a risk in comparison, because of the extreme government (And to top it off the evergrande situation now), which is why I stay clear from them (I also dont have amazon atm btw).

But where there is higher risk, there might be higher reward! Just wanted to warn that, in my humble opinion, the risk is definitely higher for Alibaba stock at the moment.

Alibaba numbers are not in dollars but in CNY. Don’t forget! But I’m also a strong believer in Alibaba. The valuation and growth are great!

Surely agree with @Mixer that Chinese stocks are high(er) risk. We can even doubt if we can trust the numbers coming from Chinese companies. I do think $BABA is one of the safest choices tho. In my opinion Chinese government does not have a lot to gain by crushing the company.

Ye it is probably is one of the safer ones.

And I do sort of agree with the above, however, It still is rather strange that the CEO went missing for 4 months just after criticizing the Chinese government (from October 2020-Jan 2021). And whether you believe it was forced by the government or simply Jack Ma trying to lay low, It still is pretty clear, in my opinion, that the Chinese government choses public order OVER economic wealth of companies. which makes it a higher risk for investors.

But hey, like I said before, High risk, high reward! I am fairly sure that the stock will grow IF the Chinese government gives it green light (unlike last year :sweat_smile:).

Chinese stocks are ofcourse higher risk but they are also very low because of that. IMO China is a choice not a must. Baba is a safe choice IMO and they are valued way cheaper then Amazon or something like that.

What are people’s current view on BABA? Did anything chance in your opinion?

I know it is a personal opinion but for now i don’t see anything coming which will change the current trend, or is it just me? $132 right now is cheap but i am just not sure yet to buy.

Personally I think that BABA is a waiting game. They are growing annually and have strong fundamentals. I think the downwards trend will hold on for a bit, but on the long term it will bounce up, are my expectations. Can’t really predict anything with the Chinese stocks to be honest :smile: . I am just holding right now, waiting and waiting…

I currently have a “tripple” position in BABA and building one in Tencent as well. Market sentiment is very negative but the causes are transitionary in nature.

Very strong company which is still growing very well.

In my opinion from FA point of view it’s a buy all day, def if you don’t have position in BABA yet. TA-wise it’s a falling knife at this point and you might want to be careful to try and catch.

It will certainly raise the price again, which is good. AND it’s great that they are buying at these depressed prices. Often companies buy back stock when it’s near it’s top range, which is silly.
At that point it’s better to pay a dividend and save the buybacks for when the stock is depressed.
