How will China's macro economic situation affect Vipshop's business and what competition has the company encountered in promoting the growth of users?
Shen: Viewed from a macro perspective, China's consumer market is not so pessimistic. Although real estate and automobile industries have suffered sluggish consumption, we didn't see the phenomenon that consumers stopped buying clothes and cosmetics.

If SUN keeps expending just 15 % a year the shares should go to 50's at least ! Plus they they still may pay the dividend . In Canada there are only big players in gasoline distribution , almost no privet owners which means price control and bigger margins for the big players . The consolidations is happening in USA as we speak .
It doesn't matter if they cut the dividend , because the company keeps expending its business . This should compensate more because the value of the company will go up and the shares too ! Invest like Warren Buffet look ahead 5 years and make money people .
