    Alibaba wants to go 'beyond China' as it posts record Singles Day sales

    China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba recorded over $38.4 billion in sales in the past 24 hours.

    Alibaba Seals $38 Billion Singles’ Day Sales Record

    (Bloomberg) -- Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. logged more than 268 billion yuan ($38.3 billion) of purchases during its Singles’ Day bonanza, exceeding last year’s record haul after a 24-hour shopping marathon.An estimated half-billion shoppers from China to Russia and Argentina swarmed the e-commerce giant’s sites to scoop up everything from Apple Inc. and Xiaomi Corp. gadgets to Ugandan mangoes. The company again hosted a televised entertainment revue in Shanghai to run alongside the bargain-hunting, this time enlisting Taylor Swift and Asian pop icon G.E.M. to pump up sales.The world’s largest shopping event has become an annual ritual for Asia’s largest company, part showcase of commercialism and part publicity blitz. Also referred to as “Double 11” because it falls on Nov. 11, it’s closely watched by investors keen to gauge how willing Chinese consumers are to spend as economic growth threatens to slip below 6%.Tensions between Washington and Beijing continue to fuel uncertainty and roil global commerce. Among China’s largest corporations, Alibaba is expected to better ride out the storm, thanks to booming online consumption in the world’s No. 2 economy. On Sunday, Alvin Liu, a Tmall general manager, said Alibaba doesn’t expect any impact on its cross-border import business from an ongoing trade spat.“Alibaba will probably be the one that will be able to circumvent and come out from the trade war in better shape” versus Baidu Inc. and Tencent Holdings Ltd., Richard Wong, head of ICT for the Asia Pacific at Frost & Sullivan, told Bloomberg Television. “The current sentiment and confidence in terms of spending is still relatively high.”While Alibaba and its rivals routinely trumpet record sums in the event’s aftermath, it’s unclear how much Nov. 11 sales actually will contribute to the bottom line given the enormous discounting involved. A good result however could bolster Alibaba’s effort to raise as much as $15 billion in a landmark Hong Kong share sale this month, according to people familiar with the matter.Singles’ Day emerged as a uniquely Chinese antidote to the sentimentality surrounding Valentine’s Day. Emerging on college campuses across the country, it takes its name from the way the date is written numerically as 11/11, which resembles “bare branches,” a local expression for the unattached.It’s now become an excuse for people to splurge. Last year, sales at Alibaba climbed 27% to 213.5 billion yuan, equivalent to $30.7 billion at the time. This time, purchases grew 26% from the year earlier. More merchandise is sold online over the 24-hour period than during the five-day U.S. holiday buying spree that begins on Thanksgiving and ends on Cyber Monday.Alibaba’s U.S. traded shares were down 1.9% Monday to $183.70 at 11:25 a.m. in New York.Alibaba saw 100 million new users join the shopping festival this year, according to Jiang Fan, president of the company’s e-commerce marketplaces Taobao and Tmall.“This is the power of expanding into less developed regions,” he said. “We hope this event can help more factories and farmers.”Read more: Alibaba Said to Seek Up to $15 Billion in Hong Kong ListingIt’s Time for Alibaba to Slay Jack Ma’s Monster: Tim CulpanBut the company faced stiff competition this year from smaller platforms including JD.com Inc. and Pinduoduo Inc. -- the aggressively expanding upstart that’s encroaching on the market leaders’ turf. They vied for the wallets of Chinese shoppers particularly in relatively untapped rural areas. All employ heavy discounting and hard-sell tactics in the run-up to and during the 24 hours in a bid to best the previous year’s record.“Overall, we think this year will likely see a more competitive Double 11 period,” Ella Ji, an analyst at China Renaissance Holdings Ltd., said in a report. “We anticipate each platform will spend more on subsidies.”Daniel Zhang, who took over as Alibaba chairman from billionaire Jack Ma in September, pioneered the show in its present form in 2015. The Singles’ Day impresario passes the baton this year to Fan, a potential successor to Zhang himself.“Over the years, we’ve seen consumers become more diverse and younger. Each generation of consumers needs their own peers to serve them,” Zhang said in a post on Alibaba’s blog. “I think this young team is the future.”The 2019 edition came with slight twists to the formula. Alibaba, stung by criticism it harmed the environment by shipping an estimated 1 billion packages in a single day -- has enjoined its logistics arm Cainiao to set up recycling centers at 75,000 locations. It says it will also work with courier companies to pick up used boxes and wrapping.An expansion into Southeast Asia and less-developed areas in China plus newer services -- such as transactions on food delivery site Ele.me, grocery store chain Hema and travel service Fliggy -- bolstered the total. The company also brought in livestreamers including Kim Kardashian to appeal to younger buyers.Other aspects remained the same. Singles’ Day has always been an opportunity for Alibaba to test the limits of its cloud computing, delivery and payments systems. Leaving little to chance, Alibaba sent teams across the nation ahead of Nov. 11 to help myriad outlets prepare for the festival. Some 200,000 brands had been expected to participate in 2019‘s edition of the festival.“Singles’ Day is becoming popular outside of China, especially in the ASEAN region,” said Patrick Winter, Ernst & Young Asia Pacific managing partner. “You’re also seeing how it’s growing in smaller cities in China.”(Updates with new user number in tenth paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Lulu Yilun Chen in Hong Kong at ychen447@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Peter Elstrom at pelstrom@bloomberg.net, Molly Schuetz, Edwin ChanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Alibaba Spends $3.3 Billion to Raise Stake in Delivery Arm

    (Bloomberg) -- Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. will spend $3.3 billion to raise its stake in Cainiao, in an effort to exert more control over the logistics subsidiary that underpins its sprawling e-commerce empire.The Hangzhou-based company will lift its stake in Cainiao to 63% from 51% by subscribing for newly issued shares in its latest financing round and buying existing stock from another holder, the company said on Friday.Six-year-old Cainiao is the rapidly growing business that sits at the heart of Alibaba’s expansion -- both in China and abroad. It oversees a coterie of at least a dozen shipping partners, orchestrating deliveries carried out by millions of people across the country.The increased stake could help Alibaba expand deeper into the business of setting up and controlling its own infrastructure, much like Amazon.com Inc. Billionaire Jack Ma said in May last year that he wanted to invest 100 billion yuan ($14 billion) in logistics without giving a time frame.Read more: Alibaba’s Ma Says to Invest at Least 100B Yuan on LogisticsCainiao’s revenue, after elimination of inter-company transactions, rose 48% to 4.8 billion yuan in the quarter ended September.The logistics giant is expanding at a rapid clip, keeping pace with its parent’s online retail business. It’s developed a neighborhood delivery service with a combination of stations and self-pickup lockers, known as Cainiao Posts, a key to bolstering last-mile delivery. The daily package volume handled by Cainiao Post doubled in September, compared with last year, according to Alibaba’s filings.Cainiao’s Guoguo app, which offers crowd-sourced parcel pick-up and delivery services, had 100 million annual users at of the end of August. Its parcel volume more than doubled in the September quarter, compared with last year, according to its filing.Alibaba created Cainiao with the department-store chain Intime Retail Group Co. and industrial conglomerate Fosun International Ltd. The trio led an initial investment of 100 billion yuan into the company to build out its logistics network.The company has since managed a delicate relationship with its delivery partners, as players jostled for business and valuable user data. Alibaba’s facing increasing competition in delivery from Pinduoduo Inc., China’s No. 3 platform. Pinduduo is seeking to take control of its own data by developing in-house shipping information technology.Read more: E-commerce Upstart Pinduoduo Wants its Data Back From Alibaba(Updates with details on logistics from the third paragraph)To contact the reporter on this story: Lulu Yilun Chen in Hong Kong at ychen447@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Peter Elstrom at pelstrom@bloomberg.net, Edwin Chan, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    China regulator warns e-commerce platforms to stop monopolistic practices

    China has warned top e-commerce platforms including Alibaba and JD.com to stop practices that could be deemed as monopolistic, as industry frictions grow ahead of the country's banner Singles Day shopping event on Nov. 11. State news agency Xinhua reported on Tuesday that China's State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) called more than 20 platforms to a meeting and urged them to stop a practice that requires merchants to sign exclusive cooperation agreements preventing them from selling products on rival platforms. The regulator's move comes as Alibaba's Tmall marketplace has in recent weeks been accused by a number of competitors and merchants of adopting such a practice, which is also known as "choosing one from two".

    As JD Stock Meets Resistance, New Competitor Pinduoduo Surges

    Since its 2014 initial public offering, JD.com (NASDAQ:JD) has been measured against its rival Alibaba (NYSE:BABA). For its part, JD stock has been on a bumpy upswing for most of the year, but that's not the only similarity.Source: Sundry Photography / Shutterstock.com Alibaba's share of the market is much larger, which has made it to some investors the simplest play on long-term growth in China. But JD's logistics expertise and room for market share gains have given it potentially higher growth, making it (usually) a higher-reward, if higher-risk play.For public investors, in particular, JD stock and BABA stock basically have been the only choices in Chinese eCommerce. Vipshop Holdings (NYSE:VIPS) has had a more narrow focus on the discount space and clearly has lost market share in recent years. (Before a recent rally, VIPS stock had fallen 80%-plus from 2015 highs.). Other large retailers like Gome and Suning are privately held.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut the two-horse race has a new entrant: Pinduoduo (NASDAQ:PDD). Pinduoduo has existed for less time than JD.com has been public, but its growth has been extraordinary. And with JD stock again hitting resistance at $32 ahead of third-quarter earnings next month, it's fair to wonder if that growth is starting to impact investors' perception of, and appetite for, JD shares. When Will Pinduoduo and JD.com Collide?From a broad perspective, Pinduoduo and JD.com don't necessarily look like competitors. Both companies are Chinese e-commerce plays, admittedly. But JD.com has taken a broad approach to online retail. (It, as I and others have noted, is much more "the Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) of China" than is Alibaba, which often is given that designation.) It owns its inventory, unlike Alibaba and Pinduoduo. It's building out a world-class logistics network. * 7 Stocks to Buy in November Pinduoduo, meanwhile, has more of a niche business model. It's targeted rural and smaller cities. Its selection tends toward the lower end in terms of price, to the point that the company remains dogged by a reputation for counterfeit goods. With the help of Tencent Holdings' (OTCMKTS:TCEHY) WeChat the company offers special buys for groups.But the two companies likely are heading for more direct competition. On recent conference calls, JD.com management repeatedly has talked up its effort to move into "lower-tier" (ie. smaller) cities. Meanwhile, Pinduoduo is going in the opposite direction, targeting urban consumers. It's even sold the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 11, a noted departure from its core assortment.In other words, each company is moving onto the other's turf. So while the battle between JD.com and Alibaba remains important, the fight against Pinduoduo now matters for JD stock as well. Who Will Win?As far as stock prices go, PDD is the clear winner of late. While JD stock has traded sideways for seven months, Pinduoduo stock has more than doubled since July. At Wednesday's closing prices, Pinduoduo actually has a modestly higher market capitalization than does its rival.In terms of the businesses, JD.com remains ahead. JD.com no longer discloses gross merchandise value, the total value of goods ordered on the platform. But 2018 GMV for Pinduoduo was barely one-fourth that of JD.com. (The revenue gap is far larger, but that's not an apples-to-apples comparison. Since JD.com owns its inventory, it books 100% of a sale as revenue, while Pinduoduo does not.)But Pinduoduo no doubt is closing on JD.com for second place in eCommerce market share. Its revenue increased 159% year-over-year in the second quarter. JD.com's sales grew a still-impressive, but far smaller, 23%. Meanwhile, Pinduoduo actually has more users, even if the GMV gap shows that those users clearly spend less on that platform than do JD.com shoppers.And there's some evidence that Pinduoduo is starting to become a real rival to both JD.com and Alibaba. CEO Colin Huang said on the Q2 conference call that 48% of GMV in June came from Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities, up from 37% as recently as January. He claimed that competitors were framing its products as "cheap, because they are low-quality or even knockoffs, [but] today our results have firmly demonstrated otherwise."Meanwhile, last week Huang reportedly claimed that Pinduoduo had surpassed JD.com in gross merchandise value. Given figures released by both companies, that seems unlikely (and, according to the report, Huang didn't cite exact numbers). But Pinduoduo has aimed to move its GMV past that of JD.com for some time now, and at the least it's making progress toward that goal.Between 150%-plus revenue growth and the expansion into JD.com's existing territory, Pinduoduo clearly is becoming a threat. The question for JD stock is to what extent that threat might be priced in. The Case for JD StockIt's possible Pinduoduo's rise -- again, the company was founded only in 2015 -- has impacted JD stock of late, particularly with the recent impressive top-line performance from Pinduoduo. JD.com shares have rallied nicely so far this year, gaining 51%. But the stock threatened an all-time low in December, and it still sits over 35% below late 2017 highs.And at these levels, JD stock still looks somewhat attractive. It's managed to expand margins nicely this year, and should do so again next year. The current price just below $32 suggests just a 26x multiple to 2020 consensus earnings per share estimates. In this market, that's not a terribly aggressive valuation, particularly if the company can keep growing revenue by a double-digit percentage clip.Even with a rising Pinduoduo, that target should be reachable. After all, Chinese e-commerce is not a zero-sum game. Despite trade war pressures, the overall economy continues to rise. E-commerce penetration should increase for some time to come. There is room for more than one winner in China, just as there is in the U.S. And both companies have ambitions to expand internationally, even if those plans remain years off.Meanwhile, JD.com has responded to Pinduoduo with a text-based app of its own, Jingxi. Jingxi too will have access to WeChat, a notable edge given that Tencent has blocked shopping links from Alibaba's Taobao for years.That said, resistance for JD stock has held firmly at $32 for months now. And as I wrote last month, there are risks to the stock. Pinduoduo increasingly looks like another one. It's going to aggressively compete for market share. In the process, it can drive pricing downward, which can resurrect the margin concerns that plagued JD.com stock in 2018.I still like JD stock long-term, and I'd bet the stock will break through resistance at some point. But this is not a simple, 'set it and forget it' play, and that's doubly true given Pinduoduo's rise. JD.com investors will be watching their company's earnings closely next month -- but they should take a long look at Pinduoduo's results as well.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.

    China's online retailers take the battle to the hinterlands

    Started four years ago by a former Google engineer, Pinduoduo has become one of China's biggest retail disruptors, breaking the dominance of Alibaba and JD.com by persuading users like Wu, who live in China's smaller cities, to start shopping online. Alibaba and JD.com have for years tried to unleash rural China's spending power, teaching residents how to use their online platforms and using drones for deliveries to remote spots, with mixed results.
