Alibaba Shares Triple in Hong Kong Trading Debut

Nov. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Alibaba.com Ltd., operator of China's largest online trading site for companies, almost tripled on its first day of trading in Hong Kong, making the stock four times more expensive than Google Inc. relative to earnings.

The Chinese company's shares closed at HK$39.50 from their HK$13.50 offer price. That gives Hangzhou-based Alibaba a market value of $25.7 billion, closing in on Yahoo Japan Corp. as Asia's biggest Internet company.

The stock trades at 155 times next year's estimated earnings, underscoring the surge in demand for Chinese shares that made PetroChina Co. the world's first $1 trillion company yesterday. Alibaba, founded nine years ago by a former English teacher with $60,000, predicts profit will almost triple this year on rising online trades in the world's fastest-growing major economy....

This smells like a good investment. I intend to buy some of this stock after the internet 2.0 bubble bursts.

This is a b2b portal, they are not a search engine. More like an industrial version of ebay.

I think you will find that whilst the company bears the name of Alibaba Site, it is actually a conglomerate, that does include Search as a major element along with a Retail equivalent of Ebay. It must do. They could not have driven Ebay out of the market, if they were not competing with them directly.

[Alibaba and Yahoo China are] probably the most unique basket of assets assembled together. We are combining our strong No. 2 search and mail businesses with Alibaba's first-place consumer auction platform, their leading business-to-business franchise, and their AliPay, which is their payment platform.
