Chinese electronic trading giant Alibaba Group (BABA – Free report) reported the results of the fiscal 2019 of the second quarter before the opening campaign on November 2, where it exceeded the expectations of gains but was delayed.
Revenues of $ 1.01 per ADS reached 19 cents above the Zacks Consensus. Revenues jumped 54% year-on-year to 12.34 million dollars and were out of the 12.65 million dollar estimate. The robust revenue growth has been credited to a growing nucleus of e-commerce businesses, rapidly growing cloud computing services and strong media and entertainment growth. Basic e-commerce earnings grew 56% year-on-year, cloud computing revenues increased 90%, and revenues by digital media and entertainment increased 24%.
Alibaba had another strong quarter of rapid growth, as annual consumer assets increased 25 million in the last quarter to reach 601 million in the twelve months ending September 30, 2018. Active monthly mobile users in their retail markets of China increased 32 million quarter by quarter to 666 million (see: all technological ETFs here).
The Chinese electronic commerce giant reduced revenue forecast for the fiscal year by 4-6%, citing growing doubts about the economy as China's expansion recently slowed down to its weakest pace in almost a decade, as well as concerns about the economic fall of the United States-China commercial war. The company will maintain the monetary appreciation of the new possible revenue streams, such as the merchants' charge for recommendation rates in their redesigned Taobao interface, until they improve the economic conditions.
Impact of the market
After mixed results, BABA's shares fell 2.4% a day. The stock was very bad in recent months due to the tensions stemming from a current trade war with the United States and the regulations. Alibaba currently has a Zacks Rank # 3 (Hold) and a VGM Score from D. It belongs to the lowest Zacks industry (less than 40%).
