Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA) beat expectations for its 2019 fiscal year
Alibaba (NYSE: BABA ) unsurprisingly beat expectations for its 2019 fiscal year. Despite overarching trade tensions that have been grabbing headlines, Alibaba stock benefits from a diversified online-driven interest that somewhat insulates it from tariffs.
The thing is, Alibaba’s business interests are so expansive from ecommerce to cloud computing to logistics solutions to international retail, they are poised to continue do well in spite of heightened trade war-related volatility.
While it’s true that I have been bullish on BABA stock over the past two years , that bullishness has not been misplaced. Alibaba has proven that it is an unstoppable force as it dominates and innovates within the Chinese domestic retail sector and expands its reach internationally.
How Alibaba Stock Stacks Up
Though off its highs, BABA stock in aggregate is still worth $460 billion. It is a massive company that still manages to deliver 51 percent revenue on a quarterly and fiscal basis. To show how impressive that is, tech darling Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN ), delivered just 17 percent over the prior quarter and 25 percent on a fiscal year-over-over basis.

A falling window occurred (where the bottom of the previous shadow is above the top of the current shadow). This usually implies a continuation of a bearish trend. There have been 5 falling windows in the last 50 candles–this makes the current falling window even more bearish. The two candles preceding the falling window were black, which makes this pattern even more bearish.
Three black candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three black crows, the steady downward pattern is bearish.
