Alibaba, the world's largest online market place is to go public. At > $16 Billion dollars, it will be the biggest tech IPO ever.

some of the money will be used in acquisitions which means it can only get bigger!

Let's start a discourse on this so that wazuans can decide if they will get a piece of the pie!

Never count on making a good sale. Have the purchase price be so attractive that even a mediocre sale gives good returns.

When is WAZUA going public?
Politics is just things to keep the people divided and foolish and put your trust in men and none of them can do nothing for you...

Alibaba is a giant already so it's not going to grow as fast anymore. Best case scenario would be to find a future Alibaba today and invest. Good luck :)

It's a giant only in China. Outside China most people don't even know the company and hence the lack of responses to this thread!

Having bought stuff from there, I say way to go and kudos to them. I found them much more flexible, responsive and willing to accomodate our (my?) peculiarities e.g. lack of credit cards for online transactions.

@maichblack - have you compared it with amazon? Check the revenues of both and the profit from the revenues. On this basis I'd call it a buy ali sell amazon/ebay as long as the listing price is not overvalued.

As for the risks, quite a lot needs to be digested now that it has opted to float in US (either on nyse or nasdaq) and bypassed hongkong due to its strict listing regulations.

But first, I need to see the float being listed and at what price for a better discussion on biz valuation etc. And as usual the underwriters roll call reads C,CS, GS, DB, JPM & MS.

But why do you saying it's the biggest IPO ever really. Haven't you seen something bigger than that in western countries or so or maybe in America ? I think it's not like that, but I still buy from it a lot of times and happy too see that such site exists anyway;)

Not true. Uber was the world’s biggest tech IPO at $75.5B and FB at $104B

Alibaba was the biggest IPO ever when it happened in 2014 and still is even after the uber IPO.

Note the amount raised during IPO is a different metric from the market cap of a company. The poster above definitely has the two mixed up
