Jack Ma is not CEO of BABA. Actually, I wish that he was personally handling the SEC investigation for BABA. The guy is a great salesman and he would have the SEC eating out of his hands.
This dispute over a small island has been going on almost forever. What makes this time any different than the past times? Not a big deal.
As far as I know there has been just talk but we may hear more about this from YHOO after Round 2 of their auction is completed.
I don't speak Mandarin but I do speak Cantonese which is spoken in Hong Kong. But my point is BABA is internationally traded and we shouldn't make fun of Chinese businessmen.
Enough of this fake Chinese, let's keep this conversation civil. I've got to admit though, part of BABA's pop today was because both SPY and DJX went up.
Well you are basically helping me make my case then. Since Taiwan is heavily dependent on China economically, then China could possibly take over Taiwan and the rest of the world will sit and watch. It happened with Tibet and it could happen again with Taiwan. China would simply say they have always believed that there is only one China.
I agree, but Jack Ma was in a tough spot. In this type of situation the truth wouldn't have helped.
What else could he have said. Yeah, I know that BABA violated federal law, but shareholder's don't worry, BABA is now in damage-control mode.
China is still mad that the KMT established a healthy economy in Taiwan. There are still some CCP members that think one day they will take over Taiwan.
Totally impossible, BABA is the largest IPO ever on the NYSE, that is worth at least 500 million. BABA is clearly worth more because of it's international contacts and listing on NYSE.
I like the way you think, who knows maybe AAPL will put 2 billion into Alipay.
Most institutions like slow and steady going up...also, market is waiting to see what YHOO is planning to do with their BABA shares.
No. These are not normal market transactions. You and me cannot get this kind of price unless we're ready to put up half a billion dollars or thereabouts.
Jack Ma isn't really Chinese, he's a Caucasian CIA agent.
As much as possible BABA tried to make this a win-win deal with Softbank. Yes, BABA is repurchasing their shares, but this is being done in order to keep the price of BABA shares at the present level.
