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.
