Guru Investment Theses on Alibaba Group Holding Ltd

Baron Emerging Markets Fund Comments on Alibaba Group Holding Limited - Feb 16, 2017

Shares of Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA), the largest e-commerce company in China, fell in the fourth quarter as a result of weakness in the Chinese currency relative to the U.S. dollar and increased spending by the company on original video programming. We continue to believe that Alibaba represents a unique opportunity to invest in the dominant provider of e-commerce and cloud-related services in the growing Chinese market. (Ashim Mehra)

Baron Funds Comments on Alibaba Group Holding Limited - Oct 25, 2016

Shares of Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA), the largest e-commerce company in China, performed well in the third quarter following strong quarterly results. Alibaba’s core China retail commerce business grew revenues 49% – driven by the continued shift to mobile transactions and improvements in mobile monetization – and its cloud business (same as AWS) grew sales 156%. Enhanced financial disclosure helped investors to understand better the profitability of the core commerce business – which has over 60% operating margins – and thereby attribute a higher value to it. We expect that mobile monetization will continue to improve through 2016 and beyond, and that the company will continue to profit from investments in new areas such as online grocery and cloud computing.

Matthews China Fund Comments on Alibaba - May 19, 2016

During the quarter, we added to China’s leading e-commerce platform provider, Alibaba (NYSE:BABA). This portfolio addition is based on the belief that the e-commerce industry as a whole will continue to benefit and take market share away from traditional brick-and-mortar sales in China. Alibaba also continues to generate high growth in both revenues and profitability, making it a sustainable business model in this industry.

Baron Funds Comments on Alibaba Group Holding Limited - May 02, 2016

Online marketplaces held in the Fund include China-based AlibabaGroup Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA), the world’s largest e-commerce company by gross merchandise value. Alibaba’s dominant franchise benefits from massive scale and powerful network effects; a rapidly expanding e-commerce market even with the recent slowdown in China; and an advertising-centric, asset-light business model that produced strong profit margins. Further, in many of China’s Tier II and III cities, Alibaba is enabling commerce as bricks and mortar competitors are often scarce.

Baron Funds Comments on Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. - Feb 15, 2016

The shares of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE:BABA) rose 38% during the fourth quarter, although they still underperformed in 2015. Alibaba is the largest e-commerce company in China, operating primarily through the country’s two largest online shopping platforms, Taobao and Tmall. We think the stock outperformed during the quarter largely due to improved momentum in monetization of mobile customers, who are increasingly the majority of its overall customer base. We continue to be optimistic about Alibaba’s prospects given its market leading position, positive network effects, high cash generation, and what we believe to be its long runway for continued growth. Over the long term, we see further upside from its cloud computing business, as well as its interest in Alipay, the largest online payments provider in China.

Baron Funds Comments on Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. - Nov 10, 2015

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE:BABA) is the largest e-commerce company in China and the world. Shares have been declining based on the company lowering its projections for growth as its consumers continue to transition to mobile purchasing, which has inherently lower conversion. The mobile transition combined with slower overall growth in China and an IPO lock-up overhang created greater uncertainty for the road ahead. Accordingly, we sold out of the position in the quarter. We will continue to monitor developments at the company in an effort to gain further conviction on the company’s growth prospects, should we decide to own this business again in the future.

Matthews China Fund Comments on Alibaba Group Holding Ltd - Apr 29, 2015

Alibaba’s (BABA) performance over the quarter was also lackluster owing to concerns of the lack of product authenticity after a survey released found that a small sample of merchandise from its Taobao website was found to be authentic.
