10:27 EDTYHOOAlibaba sets Singles' Day record, analysts start coverage with upbeat notes
Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) generated record sales during the Chinese Singles Day holiday and a number of research firms initiated coverage of the stock with upbeat notes. WHAT'S NEW: Alibaba announced that a record $8B of products had been sold on its website with a few hours left in the Chinese Singles' Day holiday. Many Chinese citizens buy gifts on e-commerce websites during the holiday. During last year's festival, $5.7B of products were purchased on Alibaba's websites. ANALYST INITIATIONS: Oppenheimer analyst Ella Ji initiated coverage of Alibaba with an Outperform rating in a note to investors last night. Alibaba's ecosystem will make it difficult for competitors to challenge it for a long time, Ji believes. The ecosystem also boosts Alibaba's revenue growth and margins, according to the analyst. The e-commerce giant's strong brand, along with its large and loyal customer base, help make it one of the best-positioned companies in the Chinese Internet space, contended the analyst. He predicted that its revenue and profits will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 34% and 32%, respectively, from fiscal 2014 to fiscal 2019. The analyst set a $133 price target on the shares. HSBC earlier today initiated coverage of Alibaba with an Overweight rating.
