According to Zacks Investment Research, "Alibaba’s strong momentum in both domestic as well as international market remains growth drivers. Moreover, the company’s New Retail strategy is aiding growth in its Tmall Import, Hema fresh food grocery business and Intime Department Stores. Further, Alibaba’s strengthening cloud business with its expanding customer base continues to drive its performance. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, contracted consumer spending and an uncertain economy is likely to impact its top-line growth. Also, rising competition from domestic as well as foreign e-commerce companies poses risk.
