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.

The company posted a net profit of 1 billion yuan ($151 million), beating estimates of a 21 million yuan loss.

“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.
