What are analysts saying about Alibaba Group Holding Ltd stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alibaba Group Holding Ltd stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Alibaba Group is a Chinese e-Commerce giant which caters mainly to its native market. Alibaba Group’s fiscal third-quarter results exceeded the Zacks Consensus Estimate.  The solid growth in its core e-commerce business as well as growing cloud computing services aided the results.  Also, over the last one year, the stock has outperformed the Zacks characterized Electronic Commerce industry.  The company’s dominance in the mobile commerce market, its continued efforts to develop new products, international growth opportunities and strong financial position are all positives. However, macro headwinds, continued investments and increasing competition from Tencent Holdings and Baidu remain the overhangs." (1/31/2017)

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "FY3Q17 results beat consensus and our estimates on both top and bottom line on strong China commerce, Cloud and consolidation of Youku/tudou. Mobile penetration and monetisation witnessed continuing improvement; Cloud delivered strong growth. Fine tune earnings and PT to USD122 from USD119. Reiterate Buy." (1/25/2017)
  • Deutsche Bank AG analysts commented, "Alibaba reported a strong Dec Q with total rev growth of 54% yoy, beating DBe by 7%. Non-GAAP EBITDA margin of 50.7% was 4ppts higher than DBe. The company attributed strong results to solid user growth (mobile MAU reached 493m, +25% yoy), consumer usage and merchant spend. Online marketing services again expanded robustly, by 47%, mainly driven by paid click growth. Commission revenue reaccelerated to 32% yoy, reflecting Tmall GMV growth recovery. Core e-commerce margin saw continued expansion to 64%, despite investment in globalization, FMCG & rural Taobao. The company lifted FY17 full year guide from 48% to 53%. The new guide should be easy to achieve given BABA's strong momentum. Alibaba's 'New Retail' strategy meanwhile seeks to integrate more offline retailers (e.g. Intime) with integrated inventory, membership and services to serve both users and merchants more efficiently. Monetization should thus increase long term." (1/24/2017)
  • Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "BABA reported strong F3Q17 results above expectations, driven by a reacceleration in core commerce (+45% Y/Y) and to a lesser extent Cloud services (+115% Y/Y) and Digital Media/Entertainment. Profit margins were in line with our expectations, as profitability in the core business (64% EBITDA margin) helps fund expansion in emerging growth areas. We continue to believe Alibaba is a key beneficiary of positive secular trends in e-commerce and gravitational platform pull. Maintain Outperform rating, new $116 price target." (1/24/2017)
  • MKM Partners analysts commented, "We remain bullish on the stock and think Alibaba will be the best performing large-cap in the Internet sector over the next 12-months," Sanderson noted.Core CommerceSanderson noted that he values Alibaba's core commerce segment at 25x his calendar year 2017 net profits forecast, which is still considered "low for a growth asset" within the e-commerce segment. The analyst also assumed "little" margin expansion through next year — an assumption which "may be conservative."Related Link: Strategies For A Sleepy Bull MarketCloud BusinessSanderson's valuation model also assumes the Chinese cloud total addressable market will become a $20 billion market within five years and the company controls a "dominant" 65 percent share. At a 28 percent operating margin, the analyst expects Alibaba to realize $3 billion in net profit over the time frame.Also, Sanderson is assuming a 30x forward multiple for the segment in four years and, when discounted, back at 25 percent to 2017.Other SegmentsAnt Financial is a "gem" given recent valuation rounds, which valued the company at $60 billion and contributes $8 per share.The marked-to-market value of publicly traded companies in Alibaba's portfolio are worth $12.7 billion today, or $5 per share.Finally, Alibaba holds interests in over 100 private companies, "many" (8/26/2016)
