E-Commerce companies play a great role in the development of the modern retail industry. Their securities become more demanded on different stock exchanges. Alibaba Group is one of the businesses that have a well-established image and keep attracting more new clients.
Alibaba Group is an e-commerce-based company registered as a commercial private entity in Hangchow, China. The company’s primary focus lies in trading operations between the company conducted by the B2B model and online retailing. Alibaba Group owns its payment system called Alipay.
The history of this company dates back to the 28th of June 1999. That day, Jack Ma together with his 17 friends created the website under the name Alibaba.com. The same year, the website received a 25 million USD investment from Goldman Sachs Group and Softbank.
Despite that, the company wasn’t profitable until 2002. In 2005, Yahoo! bought out 43% of Alibaba stocks. 20% of them were then rebought by Alibaba Group and listed on the Hong-Kong stock exchange. As of today, the biggest shareholder of the company is Softbank, which operates 25% of Alibaba stocks.
In 2014, Alibaba Group went public in the US and listed BABA stock on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). BABA stock is also listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and might be bought through the mediatory of forex brokers.
Over the past 30 years, Alibaba Group has developed many means to provide its services. Alibaba Cloud, for example, was designed to give online businesses the possibility to use all benefits of cloud computing. Alibaba Group also developed a mobile operating system for smart devices and cars called AliOS.
One more development launched by the company is called AliGenie. This is a smart platform that works as a personal intelligent assistant and smart speaker. This platform is a good contribution to the development of artificial intelligence. Except for artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and mobile commerce, the company takes part in providing entertainment and mobile media service.
Despite the extensive range of products, Alibaba’s shares are popular mainly because of its huge impact on the world’s retail market. It has launched such popular shopping platforms as AliExpress, Taobao, Tmall, and 1688.com.
According to Yahoo Finance, as of the 25th of March 2022, the BABA stock price amounted to 112.99 USD. Over the past month, the stock quotes have performed a 5.9% growth because at the end of February the costs for shares amounted to 106.69 USD.
