Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA) draws intense interest from investors
Analysts are calling e-retailer Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: BABA) the “Amazon of China” and for good reason, as the company seems to have opened the throttle financially in recent months and revenues are pouring in.
The online-only retailer, founded in 1999, first traded publicly traded in the U.S. in 2014. Alibaba’s initial public offering was the largest ever IPO at the time, with a market cap of $231 billion. The form has only trended upward since then, as BABA now carries a market capitalization of nearly $480 billion and was named earlier this year as one of U.S. News’s best stocks to buy for 2018.
Chinese e-commerce giant is building an ecosystem of digital services which it says will see customer experience enhanced by augmented reality, AI, and facial recognition.
