  • What will BABA do with all the CASH? I think a bunch of Acquisitions, strengthen their world dominant position in all China internet activity. Saw this article speculating about Yahoo:

    http://www.insidermonkey.com/blog/could-yahoo-inc-yhoo-be-scooped-up-by-alibaba-group-holding-ltd-baba-for-literally-nothing-329311/

    doubt that will happen, but an acquisition of QIHU for $10 to $20 billion, which was already in discussions back in January 2014:

    maybe SINA, SOHU, DANG, etc.; BIDU is a little too big to take over. BABAs Jack Ma personal agenda is to increase China Dominance, and he just got buckets of cash to do it with. What do you think?

    I do think BABA is going to cause a great deal of movement. Also, volume flushes with a large dump of stock, causes a chain reaction of Stop Loss Executions that make for bust out volume and more dip. Big players do this to flush out AUTO orders, drop the price way low, and then accumulate their shares back at a decreased price. Most likely will have big buying volumes all day at these low prices. Hard to know how hard the knife will cut when big boys start playing like this.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Yeh, and now you see what I was talking about in action. PPS up almost a dollar, but will not make it ti $88; got beat up too much. The market is a war zone and the big boys have all the power. We little self-investors have to just keep a safe position and hold out through these unexplained volume raids.
