Why I Could Be Buying Shares In $BABA - The Financials, Ant Group's Drama & The Race to a $1tn Valuation #73
Ryan Kia (of Quantiumresearch.co.uk) presents an investment case for Alibaba Group ($BABA). He also dives deep into the company's financials (P/E ratios, earnings data stats, relative valuations to peers etc...). We bring up the recent fears of a rotation away from "growth" stocks, and into "value" stocks, discussing the degree of truth that appears within. After a messy battle with regulators, Ant's IPO failed to complete (the company was expected to be valued at around $280bn vs the previous expectation of $150bn, as a result of a surge in investor interest for the listing). Ryan outlines both positive and negative potential newsflow & factors which will determine the direction in which $BABA shares will go next. ~ Ryan Rahimikia
