Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA) Currently Undervalued with Strong Growth Potential
No Delisting BABA Stock
It’s no coincidence Alibaba’s all-time highs in January coincide almost perfectly with the signing of the phase one trade deal between the Washington and Beijing.
As soon as the worst of the trade war and coronavirus outbreak headwinds had passed, Alibaba was hit with additional bad news. In late May, the Senate passed the Holding Foreign companies accountable Act (HFCAA). The bill would require Alibaba and all other U.S.-listed Chinese stocks to verify they are not controlled by the Chinese government. Alibaba would even have to submit its financials to Public Company Accounting Oversight Board’s (PCAOB) audits for three consecutive years.
A lot of U.S. investors are freaking out about a potential delisting of BABA stock. I say it’s unlikely to really happen.
First of all, losing Alibaba and other Chinese stocks would cost Wall Street stock exchanges, brokers and investment banks millions of dollars. They would lose trading fees, underwriting fees and other income.
“Wall Street will be lobbying to try to block it, because it makes loads of money off of listings of Chinese corporations within the United States,” Harvard law school professor Jesse fried said.
Fried said the House might not even bring the bill up for a vote. Voting against it would make representatives look weak on China. However voting for it might anger their deep-pocketed Wall Street donors. I feel people may be underestimating how much of an impact the investment community has on U.S. politics. When it becomes clear to investors that baba stock isn’t going anywhere, it may trigger a relief rally.

A long upper shadow occurred. This is typically a bearish signal (particularly when it occurs near a high price level, at resistance level, or when the security is overbought).
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
