Alibaba shares beat predictions

China's Alibaba shares inflated after the company reported Q1 sales that beat analysts' estimates. Let's have a look at the shares for you. All sessions here on the IG platform. It shares currently trading up 3.7%.

This is after those impressive sales figures when consumer sentiment bounced back from the same time a year earlier when there were strict pandemic lockdowns. Consumer purchases on Alibaba's Taobao and two more marketplaces bounced back as well.

Taobao, Alibaba's treasure chest

Taobao, of course, is another term for treasure, and it's where people go to look for bespoke items.

QMao, very interesting enterprise there. It's where Alibaba's selling or offering the more luxury end of the marketplace and the products. They helped in part, too, thanks to a shopping festival. This is a 618, which is a key shopping event in China.

In terms of sales for the group as a whole, 234 billion yuan. That's around $32.3 billion for the quarter.

Now, what is happening in this space is many of these groups are looking at buying up chips from the likes of Nvidia because this is seen as where the whole thrust of keeping stocks and also margins high will play and also the building out of generative AI systems.

According to the F2, many companies like Alibaba have made orders worth around $5 billion. Always showing you Baidu because that's also an all second stock. Baidu, TikTok owner ByteDance, Tencent and Alibaba have all made orders as well, according to this F3 report.

Global growth uncertain

So, where is the salad dressing? As global growth looks still shaky and the likes of Maersk and also Hugo Boss, Heineken and Black+Decker, included in that loss as well, have complained about destocking, which hurt their previous quality performance.

Many companies like Alibaba, like Baidu are looking to AI and new technology to solve this issue.

The question, so where is the salad dressing? The question is, can new technology help companies like Alibaba in the second half become more nimble when it comes to stocking and restocking to ensure that they're not behind the curve, whichever way the economy goes?

    • How Merlin Is Addressing Bitcoin Scalability With A Unique Layer 2 Approach If you've been around the crypto world for a while, you're likely familiar with the limitations of Bitcoin's Layer 1 and its scalability issues. Over time, we've seen various innovative proposals like Wormhole's unique approach to address these limitations. In this context, Merlin Chain caught my attention. It's a project that aims to tackle Bitcoin's scalability challenges by offering a Layer 2 solution built on the ZK-Rollups model. This translates to faster and cheaper transactions while maintaining security through a decentralized oracle network with anti-fraud measures. Developed by the well-established Bitmap Tech team, Merlin Chain boasts a market cap exceeding $500 million. Their key objective has always been to empower existing Bitcoin assets by enabling them to interact seamlessly on the Layer 2 network. I believe backing from 20+ prominent VC firms like OKX Ventures and ViaBTC suggests confidence in Merlin Chain's future. MERL was launched as the first token on Bitget's pre-market trade platform and had a commendable price action. Is Merlin Chain's Layer 2 solution a long-term solution to this issue? Let's hear your candid opinions in the comments section below! Cheers! #Bitcoin #btc #halving #transactions #merlin #merl #bitget #web3 #wormhole
    • As the crypto sector undergoes transformation, Asia emerges as a formidable player alongside the established giants of the US and Europe. With significant investments and a growing user base, the region's potential for dominance is unmistakable. Leading this movement is Dubai, pioneering crypto adoption with its favorable regulations, attracting crypto exchanges focused on the region. A standout in this field is Bitget, Asia's largest web3 wallet provider, boasting a user base of over 19 million. Through regular events, Bitget cultivates community engagement, recognizing and rewarding the trust and loyalty of its users. One such event, the ongoing "Bitget Super Savings," offers over $20,000 worth of hot tokens across various categories, providing users with an opportunity to enrich their crypto portfolios. For those in South Asia, Bitget extends an invitation to participate in this ongoing event. Seize the chance to earn free hot tokens before the event concludes on April 26th. Good luck!
    • It is ideal that crypto currency exchanges as the admisnistrators of users’ funds should account to them from time to time through transparency reports that can be drafted atleast at the end of every quarter.  Platforms like Bitget have dropped theirs and their growth is pretty impressive. Both spot and derivative volume have grown exponentially. This is a testament to the fact that the team has been doing the good work. In Q1 of 2024, the CEX’s spot trading volume increased by a whopping 113% peaking about $160 billion and the futures trading volume was at about $1.4 trillion signalling a 146% increase.  In march, the platform witnessed the most remarkable growth thus far in the derivative market making it the 3rd largest derivative trading platform for the first time since december 2022.  The user base has also trumped up from the previous 20 million to 25 million users globally.  This demonstrates pure positive social sentiment and traction. In a similar vein, through the course of the previous quarter, the platform added about 186 new tokens, this has placed its number of tokens at 750+ tokens available and 820+ spot tokens.  Most of the listings were relatively very early and some investors made fortunes off it. The launchpool has also witnessed impressive growth, a total of 7 launchpools were done and this led to an increased demand for its native token $BGB. $Bgb has been on steroids since the last quarter, breaking ATHs and establishing new ones. Bitget applauds consistency and security, its Proof of reserve has also grown to about $612 million since March. With this type of security framework users confidence will be instilled to further use Bitget. Here's some proof of the above; https://twitter.com/TokenInsight/status/1767010819282526267
