Should You Buy or Sell Alibaba? Is Jack Ma in Jail?

Buy or Sell #Alibaba? Chinese regulators announced an investigation against Jack Ma’s company over alleged monopolistic practices. and the man himself has vanished, there is a great deal of speculation now as to where Jack Ma is with a good many people thinking he is in Jail or under detention.

Ant Group, was also summoned by the People’s Bank of China, China Banking Regulatory Commission, and China Securities Regulatory Commission, and State Administration of Foreign Exchange, for “supervisory and guidance” talks.

This has caused Alibaba’s share price to go on a freefall since October 2020. The question is… is Alibaba still worth looking at?

Here’s the thing, even if Jack Ma is in custody in some form and the assets are taken it is China not the USA, Jack Ma will eventually comply, the shares will not be dumped by the Chinese Government so the downside is somewhat limited.

China won’t kill a cash cow, Jack will be back at work but with a new, strict boss.
