Chinese e-commerce company beats expectations

Wall Street was down in Monday premarket trading, continuing the losses from last week, but rose into the green after the market opened.

“We are achieving our mission of bringing China’s consumers the widest selection of top brands and, by far, the highest quality e-commerce experience,” Chairman and CEO Richard Liu said.
