Last quote about Alibaba

Laurent Potdevin
There is really a passion for data, but not so much for the brands competing among themselves. So that relationship is really powerful and it translates to what we do offline both in our stores and through events. I think Amazon is mostly around commodity product. That's not our sandbox.feedback

All quotes about Alibaba

Gina Sanchez

If you look at just the sheer numbers, China has 700 million internet users. It's the single largest internet market in the world. And because they actively censor – they keep the Googles and the Amazons out – it basically creates this market for these companies, and they have become massive very quickly.feedback

Gina Sanchez

The question is, is that sustainable? Can that last? They still have a ways to go in terms of continuing to dominate, and both of these [companies] are looking to expand out of China and into India, into the U.S. So yes, you could actually see this as a platform for a larger expansion. However, after something has gone up this fast, you do have to take a breather.feedback

Johnny Chou

Right now, the economy is so global. The U.S. and China are the No. 1 and No. 2 economy in the world, right? So I think everybody's going to be better off – for the consumers, for business – by working together, bilaterally working together, rather than having more disputes. I think people are generally good and want to work with. They just need to work out some issues. I'm very happy and optimistic that things will go well.feedback

Johnny Chou

Competition is going to continue to be fierce, like anywhere else in the world. But we have a great opportunity, and the market is growing at a tremendous amount of speed.feedback

Johnny Chou

We just started. I've lived in China for some time now. Every day you feel a stronger consumer demand. Ten years ago, I would have said manufacturing and exports is the engine for the economic growth. But now, more and more, I feel consumption .... is really driving economic growth.feedback

Hugo Barra

What I've realized is that the last few years of living in such a singular environment have taken a huge toll on my life and started affecting my health.feedback

Russell Wilson

We're starting with my fans, but soon we'll add the worlds of other celebrities to the platform. We're building these stunning, unique worlds that you can dive into.feedback

Russell Wilson

While (the TraceMe team) is hard at work building this platform, I'll be focused on football. My primary goal is to win the city of Seattle another Super Bowl. TraceMe will help me achieve this by motivating me through the ups and downs of the season, giving me that direct line to my fans and helping me stay focused. I'm super excited.feedback

Russell Wilson

I want to connect directly with my most passionate fans–my superfans. It's a front row seat for them, right by my side, that allows them to see what's on my mind, what's behind the scenes, each and every day. And I'm not the only one who wants this. While on this journey, I've been fortunate to speak to many other athletes, artists, celebrities, entertainers ... many of them say they have the same problem. That they feel they can't give back to their most passionate fans.feedback

Jason LeeKeenan

It's not for 100 percent of fans and not for 100 percent of celebrities. It's for superfans that want to go deeper.feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

By partnering with Alibaba, we can expand Mexico's export options in China and in Asia more broadly, while enhancing Mexican [small- and medium-sized enterprises'] knowledge of e-commerce and cross-border trade.feedback

Adrian Cisneros Aguilar

The idea behind Mexico's current diversification efforts, including going to China, is that, in the event President Donald Trump eventually backs out of NAFTA, we have to be ready to start implementation of plan B, and plan B is China.feedback

Adrian Cisneros Aguilar

Companies that have never mentioned China are approaching me to say they see, suddenly, it's an option.feedback

Rob Sanderson

We think the stock will extend its gains on a very strong result. Consumption growth in China and migration to online is a very long duration growth story and BABA's competitive position is extremely strong in our opinion.feedback

Rob Sanderson

We continue to rank Alibaba our top pick among Internet mega-caps and think the company has the best fundamentals of the group. We think [raising estimates] is warranted because of +50% organic growth in the segment, strong secular trends, dominant market position and +60% margin.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

The reason we were able to deliver these results is that we sowed the seeds years ago by investing in technology, by investing in innovation, by investing in people and by being bold with a vision that nobody thought was possible. Time, place and method of purchase and consumption will be different from what we're used to before. In this new world of consumption expectations, the distinction between online and offline would disappear.feedback

Lim Ming Yan - Capitaland

The key to unlocking the next stage of growth lies in blending physical and digital channels to create a seamless offline and online experience (O&O) that is sought after by consumers....Neither an offline-only nor online-only business model will work; it is in the combination of O&O where long-term success can be found.feedback

Stephen Zhu

At least for now we don't see any full integration between offline and online (technology) and that's a problem. If you don't have full integration then new retail remains a concept rather than reality.feedback

Dan Loeb

We believe that Alibaba is among the best business models in the global internet sector, and is the clear winner in the consolidated Chinese e-commerce market.feedback

Bob Marley

Many people, dey scoffers. How can God die, mon? That's why I wrote 'Jah Live.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

I remember year 2001, we went to raise some $5 million from venture capitalists in the USA and got rejected.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

If you can not get used to failure – just like a boxer – if you can't get used to [being] hit, how can you win?feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

When you read too many successful stories, people go crazy. They think 'I can be successful.feedback

Sam Wolf

Selling on Tmall is like starting a new business, as opposed to simply adding a new channel for sales. It's not a light switch, it's not a get-rich-quick opportunity where you can just double your business overnight by opening the door to China. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Anybody who comes to Tmall with get-rich-quick aspirations is going to be disappointed.feedback

Michael Wessel

His repeat performances with Trump and his administration show he is making significant inroads. Ma isn't interested in America succeeding, he's interested in Ma, Alibaba and China succeeding. As a skilled, global businessman, Ma is operating in his own interest which, at times, might also be the interests of the Chinese Communist party. That has to be considered whenever he acts.feedback

Duncan Clark

The west was his lifeline in a land where he wasn't on the elite track. He struggled in school, he's not an engineer, he's not a technical guy, so he became an English teacher.feedback

Duncan Clark

As a merchant, it's about knowing your customer, and Trump doesn't care about anything that's not huge. Realistically, without a major acquisition, I fail to see how that's possible. In the US context, it's a very big number.feedback

Christopher Balding

It's an incredibly unlikely target for job creation in any plausible time frame. If we're talking 25 or 40 years, maybe Alibaba could create that many jobs.feedback

Mark Natkin - Marbridge Consulting

It's done what it needed to do to make itself less dependent on search. (Tencent and Alibaba) have multiple other segments beyond their core that they're developing whereas Baidu's current strategy seems to be quite focused.feedback

Ajay Sunder

Singapore will be a test bed. I would give Amazon another two quarters, they should be rolling out soon in Southeast Asia, at least the major cities.feedback

Ajay Sunder

Prime builds loyalty, and same-day delivery adds to convenience factor. But Prime Now across Indonesia or across Thailand that will remain a distant reality given the logistical challenges.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

In the coming 30 years, the world's pain will be much more than happiness, because there are many more problems that we have come across.feedback

Vincent Qiu

We are in the middle of a brand and the platform, like Alibaba and Tmall. Today, we are a one-stop solution provider in China, or we can call this full-service.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

We want to make sure that everywhere we go we can build companies for the locals not for us.feedback

Josh Rogin

The Alibaba chief is using his close personal relationship with the Trumps to aid his bid to takeover global e-commerce.feedback

Daniel Zhang - Alibaba Group Holding

We believe the future of New Retail will be a harmonious integration of online and offline, and Hema is a prime example of this evolution that's taking place. Hema is a showcase of the new business opportunities that emerge from online-offline integration.feedback

Charles Zhang - Sohu.com

The sheer size of the population… a lot of the Chinese internet companies stay in China to compete because there's too much 'stuff' on our plates to eat. So the trend for globalization is not our top agenda.feedback

Lang Lang

China's image used to be 'Made in China', but now it's kind of like 'Created in China.feedback

Aimone Ripa di Meana - Lazada Group

That's clearly one of the great learnings of having built Lazada over the past five years – the interplay between having this regional structure and the economies of scale and scope to get there and then maintaining the nimbleness of the market. It's not an easy balance, but it's something that we've invested a lot of time to get to and I don't think it's acquired or built in a day.feedback

Aimone Ripa di Meana - Lazada Group

We are in a market that is at the beginning of its curve. While obviously the numbers are vast and exciting, I think the opportunities that lie ahead are much larger than anything that's been built behind us.feedback

Aimone Ripa di Meana - Lazada Group

We feel very confident about what we've built so far – we have a very unique approach to business. Having built teams that have been with us for a long time that function in a very organic way that know the markets, know the complexities that are in each market, which can't easily be replicated. I don't think knowing how to do (business in) Singapore is in any way relevant to how you build your business in the Philippines or Indonesia.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

To start taking the business and the paper on a path of growth, we have to open up the readership and make everybody have access to the content. In the future, we want to have a broader global reach, more users, and readers from all over the world. Anywhere they speak English, the SCMP should have a readership base.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

We felt that the SCMP was the perfect vehicle for us to explain China.feedback

Gary Liu - South China Morning Post

We are going to actually grow towards profitability as opposed to everyone else in the industry who's cutting to get back to profitability.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

We wanted to tell the biggest story of our lifetime, which is China… We wanted to take a 114-year-old newspaper and put it into the digital age. The biggest challenge for most media companies is that their editors are sitting in New York and London that don't understand China. So reporters always get frustrated that their stories are being mangled into a single-lens perspective. We don't have that problem at the SCMP.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

Beyond year seven, you try to harvest. But after year ten, you have to go back and reinvent yourself.feedback

Kerry Rice - Needham And Company

The other piece of this is the attraction to become a Prime member. Certainly revenue is important. But there's a lot of data points out there that Prime members spend more than non-Prime, are retained longer.feedback

Kerry Rice - Needham And Company

Alibaba's is a little bit more progressed. They have celebrities; there's a whole online kickoff. They've made it a pretty big affair. Amazon has not quite gone to that length.feedback

Dai Wei

Ofo is committed to providing global users with a convenient, efficient, green and healthy way of travel. We will continue to improve our services to create better user experiences, accelerate our global expansion strategy, and maintain our position as the leader in the bike-sharing industry. Our vision is to unlock every corner of the world, and make ofo the universal language.feedback

Colin Sebastian

We remain positive on internet-sector stocks that represent a combination of share gains within secular growth markets, strong free cash flow attributes, and healthy platform characteristics.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

Believe it or not, I think in the next 30 years, people will only work four hours a day, and maybe four days a week.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

I think the good thing, is that technology is going to improve people's lives.feedback

Daniel Zhang - Alibaba Group Holding

As a market leader, Lazada has demonstrated its ability to execute and further lead the region in products and services with the best consumer experience in Southeast Asia while growing a strong ecosystem that supports small businesses going online. The e-commerce markets in the region are still relatively untapped, and we see a very positive upward trajectory ahead of us. We will continue to put our resources to work in Southeast Asia through Lazada to capture these growth opportunities.feedback

Alex Yao - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Financial returns from monetization of such data technology have yet to be factored into our estimates. We believe data monetization through ad products is a high-margin business by nature.feedback

Alex Yao - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

We believe Alibaba's core commerce is expanding from traffic monetization to data monetization and such trend will quickly expand to its media/cloud businesses. Such expansion not only allows Alibaba to tap into non-transaction-based corporate budget but also supports our investment thesis based on sustainable revenue/earnings growth. We believe all these trends suggest Alibaba's domestic e-commerce platform continues to create value to consumers and merchants. Such value creation will continue to translate to sustainable revenue growth.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

The way to figure out the job creation, one of the best ways, is to help small business to sell their local products across the board. And we have to prepare now. Because the next 30 years is going to be painful.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

Wisdom is from the heart. The machine intelligence is by the brain [...] You can always make a machine to learn the knowledge. But it is difficult for machines to have a human heart.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

I think in the next 30 years, people will only work four hours a day and maybe four days a week. My grandfather worked 16 hours a day in the farmland and [thought he was] very busy. We work eight hours, five days a week and think we are very busy.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

I don't think we should make machines like humans. We should make sure the machine can do things that human beings cannot do.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

This is why I'm traveling, talking to all the government and state leaders and telling them move fast. If they do not move fast, there's going to be trouble. So when we see something is coming, we have to prepare now. My belief is that you have to repair the roof while it is still functioning.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

The world is going to be data. I think this is just the beginning of the data period.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

We think data is going to be so important to human life in the future. Tomorrow [with the Internet of things], everything will be connected.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

The new wave is coming. Jobs will be taken away. Some people, who catch up [with] the wave, will be rich, will be more successful.feedback

Martha Stewart

I think Jeff Bezos, with ... Amazon buying Whole Foods, you are going to be seeing meal kits being sold through Whole Foods. This is a real opportunity.feedback

Martha Stewart

Right here in Detroit there are young entrepreneurs dying to find a marketplace for their products. If the Chinese marketplace is a viable place for them to sell, can you imagine how many jobs it would encourage?feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

The domestic demand and power of China is gonna drive millions and millions of small businesses.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

It's about wisdom. It's about experience. So I don't think the machine – the artificial intelligence – is gonna replace the wisdom.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

The third technology revolution may cause the Third World War. The next 30 years are going to be painful. The first technology revolution caused World War I. The second technology revolution caused World War II. This is the third technology revolution.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

It's going to be painful. Some people who catch the wave will be rich, will be more successful. For some people, it will be more painful. The government, you know, the world is going to be data. The people will now have more data than the bosses.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

It's high frequency. It brings a lot of customer loyalty to the platform. It's also in high demand, and in today's consumer market in China people are looking for high-quality foods.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

Great minds think alike. We think that's a great move for them to get into the fresh foods category, which we have been executing on since last year.feedback

Stewart McGuire - Credit Suisse Group

Amazon's grocery ambitions have extended to more non-U.S. regions (U.K., France, Germany), and we should expect this to continue at its worldwide operations, at which point most grocers will become a direct competitor.feedback

Keith Hu - Cherry Growers

We started working with the wholesale market, Walmart China, big box retailers. We hit a bottleneck, we wanted to go past the first and second tier cities.... Alibaba was a much better product.feedback

Bruno Monteyne

Alibaba didn't buy one retailer, it has bought already 4 retailers for the same reasons. The same will be true for Amazon: it will need a lot more physical store state to distribute efficiently, across the major cities. This leaves other grocers with 2 choices: (1) try to be the next network to be bought by Amazon, or (2) become the local surviving incumbent, the alternative shop to Amazon.feedback

Arianna Huffington - The Huffington Post

On this front, I want to say that for me, from the moment I joined the board, a personal and stated goal was to increase the diversity of the board, much though I love my white, male colleagues. So today, as you may have heard or you may have read from the email I sent out last night, I'm delighted to announce that we have been joined on the board by an incredible leader who also happens to be a woman: Wan Ling Martello .... the only woman member of the board at Alibaba and somebody I know you're going to love to get to know.feedback

Lucie Greene

Alibaba is now a major investor in entertainment. We're also seeing more Silicon Valley influence in Hollywood – Netflix, and Amazon, now winning major awards for their original films. This also poses exciting new territory for mediums and storytelling, using new technology.feedback

Kathy Gersch

For me, this is a natural transition for [Nordstrom]. This gives them an opportunity to take a bit longer-term view on what does [restructuring] look like – thinking how we reshape ourselves without market pressures.feedback

Eric Schiffer

I think this is a clear message that consumers are changing how they operate and that there is a free fall happening in retail. It's crippling old brands and hanging over their head in every threatening way. If you're an e-commerce pure-play, you're in a powerful position.feedback

Jessie Guo - Jefferies

The company will continue building its ecosystem based on data technology with core businesses supported by payment, logistics, data management platform and cloud.feedback

Maggie Wu - Alibaba Group Holding

We're not holding a gun to merchants' heads to make revenue grow. It's all determined by merchants. They bid for every single click.feedback

Michael Chang

It is vitally important that [these measures are] proportionate, consistent, non-discriminatory and formulated in a transparent manner. Regretfully, this is not yet the case.feedback

Carly Ramsey - Control Risks

The law is both extremely vague and exceptionally wide in scope, potentially putting companies at risk of regulatory enforcement that is not related to cyber security.feedback

Mark Dunhill

Don't just assume that what works in the UK works overseas. It's very easy to think of China's 1.4 billion consumers and assume success, but signing up and initially getting yourself abroad is just the first step. The bigger challenge is staying there. Do your homework and be aware of who you're getting involved with and what they can do for your business. By partnering with Alibaba, we didn't have the need to employ a whole team of people; we made the most of its vast ecosystem.feedback

Rob Sanderson

BABA reports FYQ4 earnings on Thursday ... We are expecting strong results driven by solid GMV [gross merchandise volume] growth and continued monetization gains. We continue to see considerable value in the SOTP [sum of the parts] and think that continued strength in commerce is the catalyst for unlocking value.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

In the next 30 years, the world will see much more pain than happiness. Social conflicts in the next three decades will have an impact on all sorts of industries and walks of life. Machines should only do what humans cannot. Only in this way can we have the opportunities to keep machines as working partners with humans, rather than as replacements.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

Alibaba has business-to-business and business-to-consumer operations in Brazil. We did very well in the last few years. But now we have some issues and our team is working on them.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

As incomes rise, Chinese consumers are increasingly looking for high quality products from around the world, especially the United States.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

30 years later, the Time Magazine cover for the best CEO of the year very likely will be a robot. It remembers better than you, it counts faster than you, and it won't be angry with competitors.feedback

Roger van Zandt

Anybody can go on [global trade site] Alibaba and find a supplier and put your name on it, and a lot of those companies have. It's completely flooded with people that do that because they don't focus on the brand. They just think, Oh we're gonna put out this pen and make a million dollars. We're in the picks and shovels business.feedback

Eric Xu - Huawei Technologies

I believe we can build upon our advantages accumulated over the years. Compete and coexist with AWS and Microsoft, I believe that is the trend we are going to see. Our strategic focus will be on our telecom partners' cloud transformation.feedback

Zheng Yelai

We used to focus on private cloud and did well. Now the purpose is to strengthen our public cloud offering.feedback

Jennifer Durham

I'm, obviously, concerned about my design that's being copied. It's definitely infringement.feedback

Roxanne Elings - Davis Wright Tremaine

It feels like a game of whack-a-mole but if you don't do it you'll be flooded. With a small company, I feel for them, because it doesn't take much to really hurt. Luxury and fashion companies don't like it, but they have the resources to keep it at bay. It's tougher for small companies.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

Fake products today are of better quality and better price than the real names. Failing to protect original designs, trademarks and technology is akin to thievery, and it is detrimental not only to innovation but also to the integrity of the marketplace. We do not and will never condone any act of stealing.feedback

Natalia Zurita

I never saw it coming and didn't know it could happen. It was terrible; it was horrible. I consider myself an artist and I would never try to hurt another artist.feedback

Tannia Ospina

You think this would happen to Nike or Louis Vuitton. You wouldn't think it would happen to small businesses.feedback

Tomas Šlimas

We've noticed similar issues in the past, and we have always informed our merchants that they might have imported a product which is copyrighted and they should take it down. It's a huge problem existing in most of the Chinese marketplaces, but we can only rely on their ability to identify and remove those products.feedback

Harley Lewin - McCarter & English

We tell small businessmen that you can't delay trying to protect yourself. That's the worst problem that they face. Something they make becomes a hit – then bang it gets copied.feedback

R.J. Hottovy - Morningstar

I think they've been successful. You're never going to get 100% elimination. ... If the deal is too good to be true, it probably is. In a consumer marketplace like Taobao, it's hard to eliminate.feedback

Joseph Gioconda

Giving membership to a company who has been accused of being a major enabler of copyright infringement would really question what the purpose is of the organization. If you were going after the mafia, you wouldn't invite them to dinner and have a conversation about how you're going to go about working together.feedback

Lindsey Callinsky

We are moms, just trying to do good for our families offering high quality goods made here in America. This hurts. It has to stop but they are too big to take on.feedback

Jennifer Durham

I'm a small business. I don't make a lot of profit to actually pay for an attorney to fight for this one design. It would take all of my profits to fight an international fight. Businesswise, it didn't make sense for me.feedback

Mariana Toscas

I swear to God every day I wake up and there's a new site selling my design. It's cancer. Once the providers provide from China, it's literally like trying to stop an infestation.feedback

Bharat Dube

There are examples of other websites and e-commerce platforms even in China that do a much better job in addressing the issues. Alibaba seems out of control.feedback

Maximilian Bittner - Lazada Group

Our success in all of the markets that we're in is that we've found the right mix of the assortment that the consumers are looking for and we're focused on building on that experience.feedback

Maximilian Bittner - Lazada Group

It's very hard for me to worry about someone who has not actually entered the market yet and so far they're not here. I think once they're here, we can start worrying about them. Amazon will come when they come and we will see, but right now we're very focused and very happy on the partnership with Alibaba and strengthening that partnership.feedback

Maximilian Bittner - Lazada Group

The goal is to find better ways to address the exploding middle class across Southeast Asia and communicate directly with them.feedback

Yossi Vardi

We know ... Chinese companies outside like Alibaba and Huawei. Wait a few years and you will see hundreds of Alibaba's and Huawei's after they finished to exploit the local market and they turn into the international market we are going to see something which really will be amazing.feedback

Yossi Vardi

When you look at China today, it's not what you saw in China three or five or 10 years ago. These people are able to come with products, with innovation and creating products which are better than the West in some areas.feedback

Greg Hankerson

It just keeps going and going and going. It's like trying to pick weeds on a 70-acre farm. It should be click and forget. Our products should never be on their site.feedback

Greg Hankerson

I loved the experience so much that I just wanted to make a better table. Like a mad artist.feedback

Greg Hankerson

You would find one image, and you go and look at their catalogue on Alibaba, and there's another and another and another. It's going down the rabbit hole.feedback

Greg Hankerson

They want to have all those counterfeits, and they want to make money off of it.feedback

Shelleen Shum - eMarketer

In the immediate future, the only other potential rivals to Facebook and Google are the big 3 Chinese companies, Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent (BAT), who are riding on a wave of rising disposable incomes and a growing tech savvy population in China. The BAT companies are expected to experience resilient digital and mobile ad revenue growth as they start to fully monetize their various advertising products.feedback

Deepender Rana

The brand power - which tests consumer inclination to select a given brand - of Chinese brands continues to grow and for the first time has started to surpass that of multinational rival brands. We expect this trend to accelerate in future years as Chinese companies realise they need to build differentiated brands to command a premium in a competitive market, where penetration-led growth is plateauing off in many categories.feedback

Douglas Feagin - Ant Financial Services Group

(Southeast Asia) is quite attractive because it has the fundamental characteristics of high mobile phone usage and rising per capita income, but still has a large population that is not banked.feedback

Douglas Feagin - Ant Financial Services Group

MoneyGram we view as very attractive because it gives a global network of remittance capability and kind of an omnichannel approach that connects us. That's why we've entered the transaction and look forward to completing the deal with them. Today with our wallets you can transfer money in a country quite easily, and we want to enable that more broadly around the world. That's what MoneyGram would help us to do. We're focused on larger markets there in terms of the population and the opportunity set. So I would expect to see some other partnerships this year.feedback

Shaun Rein - China Market Research Group

It is just one of a hundred initiatives for (Alibaba). But for Mattel, it is really do or die.feedback

Cindy Liu - eMarketer

Alibaba's ad revenues show no signs of slowing down as user engagement on the Taobao app increases and the company continues to deliver highly relevant ads to consumers.feedback

Cindy Liu - eMarketer

Ad spending in China continues to shift rapidly toward digital formats, fueled by rising time spent online and greater advertiser spending on mobile formats, especially on video and social media.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

The majority of counterfeiters are not held legally responsible for their actions. If the penalty for even one fake product manufactured or sold was a seven-day prison sentence, the world would look very different both in terms of intellectual property enforcement and food and drug safety, as well as our ability to foster innovation.feedback

Michael Nathanson - MoffettNathanson

Even with rosy growth forecasts, at $22 billion, we're looking at a stock trading at five to eight times estimated revenues in 2020. The only companies in that domain are Facebook and Alibaba, and they have massive scale. And both of them are profitable.feedback

Alex Yao - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Most likely a lot of the opportunities will be grabbed by the larger incumbents – Baidu, Tencent (and) Alibaba – but there are vertical opportunities for a lot of start-ups as well.feedback

Bruno Mercier - Sun

We are slowing down a bit our pace of expansion of hypermarkets and at the same time we want to make sure that every one of them reaches the turnover we want to have. We want to open some new formats. We will open some high-end supermarkets.feedback

Rich Williams - Groupon Goods

In 2016, our concentrated focus on key strategic initiatives provided a strong foundation for Groupon going forward and resulted in a streamlined global operation, a healthier Goods business, improved customer service and strong customer acquisitions after a successful online and offline marketing strategy. We look forward to continuing to invest in the Groupon brand and unlocking the true potential of our business as we make Groupon the daily habit in local commerce.feedback

Margo Georgiadis - Mattel

Play has a tremendous impact on a child's cognitive, social and emotional growth. By combining Mattel's unmatched expertise in childhood learning and development, with Alibaba's immense reach and unique consumer insights, our goal is to help parents in China raise children to be their personal best. The multi-billion dollar toy category in China is highly fragmented, with tremendous potential for growth. Working with Alibaba, we see a terrific opportunity to develop and lead the category.feedback

Maggie Zhou

A physical Alibaba headquarters is a key step in ensuring Australian businesses have the support and information they need to succeed in China and the rest of the world. Longer term, Alibaba Group's vision for the ANZ region is to build the entire operating infrastructure needed to enable local businesses to expand globally.feedback

Cindi Profaca

If the goal is job growth, it's not going to be coming from these companies. They just don't need that many people.feedback

Kathy Smith - Renaissance Capital

That's why there is such high multiples for these software companies. The profit margins are really high because they can scale very easily without adding that many employees.feedback

Warren Mead

The combination is a powerful one: leading-edge technology with global reach and a significant physical footprint. Innovation and trust in one bundle. I expect to see the ever increasing convergence of fintech and the more traditional financial services sector.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

Conflicts "will definitely be there. If [the conflicts] were not dealt with properly, they might lead to a relatively big trade war, which is not a good thing for China, the U.S. or the world economy. It is only that his speaking style and the way he does things are different from what we're used to expecting from politicians. He saw the many problems existing now in the U.S. and he hopes to solve them in a different way.feedback

Alex Holmes - Capital Economics

MoneyGram can now accelerate and expand our suite of global hybrid solutions and integrate an even larger digital and physical network, making money transfers easier for customers and providing a wider selection of services for the agents who serve them around the world. Ant Financial is an ideal partner for MoneyGram; together, we will be able to expand our business and, in doing so, offer more people around the world access to a reliable financial connection to loved ones.feedback

Bharat Kapoor

The numbers speak for themselves. They've removed so many millions of listings (of counterfeit products) but the problem is still rampant. Very little has been done on the ground. The complaint filing process on Alibaba is so complex. There are some 30 sub codes that you have to use to file a complaint for each listing on Taobao and you have to justify that a particular product is fake. This is not something that is required for any other marketplace.feedback

Junheng Li - JL Warren Capital

(Cloud computing) is a relatively new sector in China so there are many players trying to get in early to grab market share so inevitably, you see competition heat up pretty quickly, That's why the cloud business, although it's only been in operation for a couple of years, you already see pricing pressure. I think people are happy that Chinese consumers are still spending in the e-commerce sector but they are waiting to see how (Alibaba's) other businesses, such as cloud computing, will play out. I think it's too early to say.feedback

Jessie Zheng - Alibaba Group Holding

The most powerful weapon against counterfeiting today is data and analytics, and the only way we can win this war is to unite.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

Alibaba's partnership with the IOC is built on a foundation of shared values and a common vision for connecting the world and enriching people's lives.feedback

Eric Jing - Ant Financial Services Group

We have an ambition to be a global company. So my vision (is) that we want to serve 2 billion people in the next 10 years by using technology, by working together with partners … to serve those underserved.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

In America there is freedom of speech, so of course he can say whatever he wants. We did not debate on China-U.S. trade, or manipulation. We did not debate. Actually we agreed on something – small business.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

The world can never have one model. If the world has only one correct model, the world is too boring. The people who use the model should believe in the model. I believe in what I do.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

The difference between Amazon and us, is Amazon is more like an empire – everything they control themselves, buy and sell.feedback

Sotirios Paroutis

Anchoring the new name on the valuable link with Alibaba makes sense, as it is a fresh break from Yahoo's troubled recent past. If true that the first part of the name is about 'alternative,' it remains to be seen what is alternative about the new firm and how its strategy will relate to Alibaba.feedback

Richard Titherington

I think the growth companies, the Alibabas and the Tencents of this world, (will) continue to do well.feedback

Rob Dunkel

The problem that Ma's created has cost the U.S. millions of jobs. Why should we believe you now?feedback

Rania Sedhom

I'm not sure people understand how endemic an issue this is. I don't think the government as a whole understands the true consequences and where the money is going.feedback

Robert Christie - Alibaba Group Holding

If you ingest something or it touches their skin, they don't want it made in China. That's everything from makeup to vitamins to lotions to clothes. We know there's big demand for that in China. We are actively using our big data capabilities not only to remove suspect products from our site, but also to help put counterfeiters in China behind bars.feedback

Harley Lewin - McCarter & English

Jack Ma is great at PR and Trump is a sucker for anybody who kisses his whatever. Ma is going to say that because those are the buzzwords that appeal to the incoming administration.feedback

Harley Lewin - McCarter & English

It makes sales into China prohibitive. You can't compete with the volume of selling of fakes on the internet.feedback

Emile Chang

We welcome foreign investments, and Chinese investments in principle as well. But the review process is stricter.feedback

Daniel Zhang - Alibaba Group Holding

Our combination with Intime will enable us to tap into the long-term growth potential of a new form of retail in China powered by Internet technology and data.feedback

Daniel Zhang - Alibaba Group Holding

We don't divide the world into real or virtual economies, only the old and the new. Those who cling on to the old ways of retailing will be disrupted.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

I think the president-elect is very smart, he's very open-minded to listen. [Trump] has concerns, and he has solutions, that he wants to discuss with China and us.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

We mainly talked about small business and young people and American agriculture products to China. And we also think, that the China and US relationship should be strengthened, should be more friendly.feedback

Zheng Junfang

We want to mete out to counterfeiters the punishment they deserve in order to protect brand owners. We will bring the full force of the law to bear on these counterfeiters so as to deter others from engaging in this crime wherever they are.feedback

Scott Kessler - S&P Capital IQ

On Wednesday Ant Financial was growing in a thriving financial technology - fintech - environment and an IPO would also benefit parent company Alibaba . They already partake in some of the profits from Ant Financial, and really have the ability to take a very significant stake upon the confirmation of an IPO. We expect (current CEO) Marissa Mayer to exit the company.feedback

Michael Evans - Alibaba Group Holding

We are far more effective and advanced in IPR protection than when the USTR took us off the list four years ago. The decision ignores the real work Alibaba has done to protect IP rights holders and assist law enforcement to bring counterfeiters to justice. The USTR's decision leads us to question whether the USTR acted based on the actual facts or was influenced by the current political climate.feedback

Grace Chen - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

We believe the market in general still views Alibaba as a traditional e-commerce company, as this remains the major profit driver, while its efforts to upgrade the e-commerce business and invest in other strategic initiatives (i.e. AliCloud) are underappreciated. For example, given the strong growth in AliCloud, the future revenue and profit mix could be materially different from what it is now.feedback

Cai Wensheng

Through growing our user base and enhancing users' engagement in a cost-efficient manner, we are determined to develop Meitu as a portfolio of innovative photo and community apps so as to retain and attract more business partners to our ecosystem – which could ultimately contribute to our revenue.feedback

Mark Li - Sanford Bernstein

For China, YunOS addresses the concern that the majority of smartphones in the nation run on an operating system that is ultimately led by a foreign company, Google.feedback

Ethan Yu - AliCloud

With the addition of those four data centers, it will cover our customers globally.feedback

Ethan Yu - AliCloud

We are not looking at profitability as the near term goal. For now, our goal is to keep expanding our market leadership and therefore we will continue to make investments and develop that for rapid expansion.feedback

Ethan Yu - AliCloud

We have a strong flavor of China and Asia. We are the true cloud that can provide a global infrastructure to our end users and are connected globally especially in China.feedback

Ethan Yu - AliCloud

We will be in a much better position in a few months down the road. For me, a very positive relationship between China and the U.S. will be helpful for all business moving forward. From our perspective, we will focus on our business first.feedback

Yu Sicheng - AliCloud

Our focus is to keep expanding our market leadership and presence and this is our priority for now.feedback

Yu Weimin

With all this technology together we can win the war on terrorism.feedback

Yu Weimin

Big internet companies are the ones with the means to fight cyber terrorism, which is why we need more cooperation between the private and public sector.feedback

Yang Peng

This marks a step forward for China. We are asking [Tencent] professionals to learn from these regulations.feedback

Minh Tran - Lenovo Group

Chinese companies, such as Alibaba and Huawei, that are looking to operate abroad or attract foreign capital are expecting higher English proficiency levels from their applicants.feedback

Mike Khouw

Obviously, those who were following the stock probably observed that it was trading relatively weak, so they didn't digest what otherwise looked like an impressive growth number very well.feedback

Michael Evans - Alibaba Group Holding

We're very comfortable with the accuracy of our reporting, and in the quality of our numbers. The SEC sent us a request for information on a variety of things. We've responded to that and we're working in full cooperation with the SEC. And we're not concerned about both what they're looking at, and also what we're disclosing.feedback

Michael Evans - Alibaba Group Holding

We feel very good about our numbers. Politics, we can't control. The quality of what we disclose, we can. And our ability to work cooperatively with government and regulatory agencies around the world is a hallmark of building this business for the global markets.feedback

Michael Evans - Alibaba Group Holding

United States: great country. China: great country. The two biggest economies in the world. If those two countries work together .... then both of those countries will do extremely well. But most importantly, the rest of the world will do well. The rest of the world is relying on the United States and China to figure it out. I have a high expectation that that's going to be the case.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

A lot of brands have tried to set up their own website and to access consumers directly, but they've not been very successful.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

You have to employ very sophisticated technology to police the site. We cooperate with IP enforcement agencies to crack down on counterfeiters not just online but also getting data to law enforcement so they can do factory raids and shut down factories.feedback

Doug McMillion - Wal-Mart

Our new services will leverage our combined strengths to give Chinese consumers access to quality products from around the world.feedback

Jessie Qian

There are several factors contributing to the growth in mobile users. First of all, it's the access of cheaper mobile phones and secondly, the confidence in the third party payments (systems).feedback

Duncan Clark

In China, shopping is entertainment. A lot of people [in inland cities] are tuning in to live broadcasts for products. Hundreds of thousands of people follow internet celebrities who use these platforms to sell.feedback

Duncan Clark

Jack Ma likes to say that they're no longer an e-commerce company. They're sort of transcending that. It's about data, it's about finance, it's about media.feedback

Daniel Zhang - Alibaba Group Holding

Back in 2013, 35 billion yuan (US$5.15 billion) was our one-day GMV (gross merchandise volume). Now we can achieve it in one hour.feedback

Christian Magoon

They are trying to follow the Jeff Bezos model. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that they will be able to turn these businesses into profit centers in the years to come.feedback

Maggie Wu - Alibaba Group Holding

Making the business profitable is not the top priority for Alicloud at this stage. The top priority is to keep expanding our market leadership, therefore we will continue to make investments to develop our cloud business for rapid expansion.feedback

Cindi Profaca

There are very few stocks that allow access to the Chinese consumer, and this is one of them. And industry trends in e-commerce are all pointing upward, at least for the moment.feedback

Todd Gordon

You don't want to buy calls, which is also a bullish bet, because those calls based on the implied volatility are overvalued, so it's better to be selling the expensive puts.feedback

Todd Gordon

It looks like we could continue to press higher following the report on Nov. 2.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

You've got to pay a lot of respect to him to withstand that kind of pain.feedback

Jim Chanos - Kynikos Associates

You see a line item, equity and net income of affiliates, but there's no idea – with the 2 million employees – of what those costs are, what the accounting is there.feedback

Jim Chanos - Kynikos Associates

I would want to know if I'm investing in a $280 billion company that's supposedly on the forefront of the digital revolution of China why it's so cash flow negative and we can't good answers.feedback

Michael Evans - Alibaba Group Holding

Many of the things that Jim has focused on are actually real concerns, which the Chinese regulators and leaders are also focused on. But we have confidence that they both understand the magnitude of the issues and are thinking about solutions that will be sustainable in the long term.feedback

Michael Evans - Alibaba Group Holding

If you think about China today as a market that is very dependent on the big four banks....then you have to understand that the government and regulators are very concerned that those banks remains safe because they are the central pillars of the economy.feedback

Michael Evans - Alibaba Group Holding

I believe that ... foreign technology companies will be successful in China. I also believe that Chinese technology companies, including Didi, probably Alibaba, will be successful in the U.S. and Europe. But that is the challenge and the most difficult parts of globalization for us.feedback

Daniel Zhang - Alibaba Group Holding

Last year we brought many international brands to China for the first time. We are bringing them to consumers in Hong Kong and Taiwan for the first time this year, and next it will be Southeast Asia and the rest of the world.feedback

Lin Feng

In China ... audiences love to buy virtual gifts for Internet celebrities who are hosting a show.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

We will be looking at an IPO in the next few years; we are not yet sure where we will list or when exactly.feedback

Shao Xiaofeng - Alibaba Group Holding

We look forward to working with Amblin Partners, a company that shares our vision of powerful storytelling. This partnership is the first of its kind for both Amblin Partners and Alibaba Pictures and marks an important milestone in our globalization strategy to reach Chinese and global audiences alike. We will also leverage Alibaba Group's ecosystem as a channel for Amblin Partners' films to reach hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers.feedback

Andrew Keene

When I'm trading countertrend, [I look to have] a great reward-to-risk set up.feedback

Daniel Zhang - Alibaba Group Holding

Chinese consumers [are] in the process of consumption upgrading, People are basically changing their lifestyle[s].feedback

Magesvaran Suranjan

The products have to have a certain richness in perfumes [in Asia] than in the West.feedback

Malina Ngai

The cycle of planning is really, really short, These days, no one can see for more than 10 years … We review the plan [every quarter] just to see where the customers are going and what we need to do to really get customers shopping more.feedback

Daniel Zhang - Alibaba Group Holding

The reason we created [Single's Day] is probably for one thing, it's for survival.feedback

Kunal Bahl

Indian e-commerce is where Chinese e-commerce was in 2007 or 2008. We are about 8 years behind but it's not going to take us 8 years to bridge the gap.feedback

Daniel Zhang - Alibaba Group Holding

This is not purely for gaming [or] for interaction. This is also for sales, This sells tons of that product … within 30 minutes.feedback

Kunal Bahl

Consumers in Asia want the best … They don't want emerging market service, they want developed market services but at emerging market prices.feedback

Shelleen Shum - eMarketer

We think the impact will be larger on Baidu than on the other search engines given Baidu's larger market share and its dominance in medical service ads.feedback

Yehuda Shmidman - Alibaba Group Holding

Alibaba tells us the trends in the Chinese consumer towards urbanization are leading to modernization and then to Westernization. Particularly the notion that people are putting money into their homes for the first time.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

I think globalization is a great thing ... [but it] is not perfect ... we have to improve globalization. Now this period is called the growing pain of globalization. The last 20 years, globalization was helping big companies, developed nations.feedback

Yan Tang - Momo

With the privatization proposal from the Buyer Group behind us, we are more committed than ever to driving business growth in the interest of the Company and our shareholders.feedback

John Choi - Daiwa Capital Markets

Tencent's mobile game pipeline in second half 2016 and 2017 looks solid to us. We see revenue upside from the monetisation of Supercell's vast China user base and the introduction of new genre games (such as location-based games).feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

We're just killing it on mobile. We have just reported that our monetization of mobile users has exceeded the monetization of the users on PC.feedback

Piyush Mubayi

We add BABA to the Conviction List following better than expected 1QFY17 results, an even stronger growth/margin outlook and dominance across several businesses.feedback

Allen Zhu - GSR Ventures

When the time came to sit China's demanding university entrance exams, he was ill but did enough to get into Beijing University of Chemical Technology. He was an assistant to a chairman at a foot massage company. He thought it was not interesting, and after about a year he applied to join Alibaba as a sales person.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

I have tons of respect for Mr. Trump, but sitting here, I feel like China is the whipping post for the United States. What's important to see is the overall context of U.S.-China relations … We [Alibaba] are the gateway to China. So right now, if you're an American manufacturer, you're an American brand, that wants to access the China market, you should come and talk to Alibaba.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

I think you really need to take a step back and not think about the Chinese economy in a cyclical, quarter-to-quarter way. In any given quarter there could be ups and downs. What we're looking at is the long-term trend.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

We have worked hard to make it easy to understand Alibaba. We have provided you with more detailed info about our company so that you can better analyze our business.feedback

Andre Bakhos - Janlyn Capital

We're coming off a strong session on the back of solid economic data that the markets needed to justify additional exposure to equities.feedback

John Rogers

Chinese online shoppers are increasingly demanding high quality international products. Products to make a British breakfast and English afternoon tea have therefore proved hits.feedback

Thomas Buberl

Thanks to Alibaba's unrivaled knowledge of its home market, this partnership will also help us further accelerate our development in China, where we are already the number 1 international insurer.feedback

Ali Mogharabi - Morningstar

We believe the shares will trade at a discount as the risk of having to pay some or all of the deferred tax liabilities of those holdings remains.feedback

Bill Russo

The RX5 will be able suggest alternate routes in the case of road closures or traffic as well as a more personalized experience in the car.feedback

Wang Jian

You'll quickly see driverless car technology resulting from this platform.feedback

Jessie Zheng - Alibaba Group Holding

In the face of such a complex problem we can't be complaining about each other, or criticising each other...We have to have everybody involved and work together to do it. In this battle it's you and me. It can't be you doing the work and me watching, or me doing the work and you talking. Our only choice is to join forces.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

We have to protect [intellectual property], we have to do everything to stop the fake products, but OEMs are making better products at a better price.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

You can't stop Alibaba for two hours otherwise it's going to be a disaster for China. You can stop Tencent for two days, you can stop Baidu for two weeks and everything will still be OK.feedback

Kathy Smith - Renaissance Capital

This is not going to help the case for the unicorns. The more you wait, the more the competitors come out.feedback

Mark Dreyer

Suning is definitely now seen as a bit of a national champion, on par with the likes of Alibaba Group Holdings and Dalian Wanda.feedback

R.J. Hottovy - Morningstar

We view these losses as reasonable , given that Cainiao is still in investment mode as the e-commerce market in China evolves. The loss represents a relatively small part of Alibaba's net income.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

Today it's easy to perish Alibaba but difficult to eliminate the counterfeits...Anti-counterfeiting is not just a course of Alibaba, but it's the course for the whole China.feedback

Eric Gan - SoftBank

I've really enjoyed working with the Alibaba Cloud team on the joint venture over the past few months. During the business planning discussions, I quickly felt that we were all working very much as one team with one goal. I believe the JV team can develop the most advanced cloud platform for Japanese customers, as well as for multinational customers who want to use the resources we have available in Japan.feedback

Gil Luria - Wedbush Securities

Whatever they are doing must be working, and most importantly it's a sign that the Chinese consumer may not be weakening quite yet. Alibaba represents a big part of the spend by Chinese consumers and so a re-acceleration in volumes is an indication that the Chinese consumer continues to be strong.feedback

Eric Jing - Ant Financial Services Group

The capital raised in Series B will allow us to invest in the infrastructure, such as cloud computing and risk control, that will underpin our long-term growth in rural and international markets.feedback

Ronald Josey - JMP Securities

Given all the challenges Yahoo has faced with the reduction of its workforce and the Alibaba spinoff plan, to come in and deliver these numbers is a very positive thing.feedback

Duncan Clark

Southeast Asia has a lot of overlap with China in terms of consumer habits, intra-regional trade and tastes. Rocket in this case has managed to create a successful, multi-market player in a region which needs scale and breadth to be viable. This has obvious appeal to Alibaba.feedback

Sarah Simon - Berenberg

We had always had concerns that Lazada could fall victim to intense competition from Alibaba, yet here we have an example of an internet giant buying out the smaller competitor at a substantial valuation.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

Growth is meaningless unless it is sustainable. Thus, we have turned our focus to quality growth and broadening domestic consumption.feedback

Joe Tsai - Alibaba Group Holding

While GMV is a proxy for scale, our focus on quality and sustainable growth means how we measure success is no longer dependent on a simplistic view of GMV growth.feedback

Marissa Mayer

Separating our Alibaba stake from Yahoo's operating business is essential to maximizing value for our shareholders.feedback

Klaus Schwab - World Economic Forum

I see a lot of entrepreneurial forces coming up in China. Look at Alibaba. I feel China will use the fourth Industrial revolution in order to boost its economy.feedback

Sam Hamadeh - Privco

It has created essentially the Google of China. It's created the Groupon of China. It's created the Amazon.com of China, the eBay of China and the PayPal of China. So if you can imagine one company, all in one stock, all at once, and in the fastest growing economy in the world, that's what Alibaba is. That's why this matters so much.feedback

Sam Hamadeh - Privco

A lot of these companies need to be concerned because Alibaba intends to become a household name in the West.feedback
