Alibaba was founded in 1999 in Hangzhou originally as a company geared towards helping small businesses use the internet to grow and compete more effectively.
Today Alibaba is the world’s largest ecommerce ecosystem. BABA is a high quality business with strong growth, sustainable moats, strong and stable cash flow and reinvestment opportunities and an impressive management team.
BABA has enduring competitive advantages given its unparalleled leadership position in China’s online and mobile commerce. It’s ecommerce network system funnel users to other parts of the platform, providing a compelling value proposition to both merchants and customers. However, its intensive investment cycle is a key risk to its operating and profitability metrics.
Given BABA’s strong brand and leading position in a fast growing and highly profitable market with a long term growth path we think investors are more than compensated for the slightly elevated risks of investing in BABA.

MFT’s key opportunity is to grow and intensify its network. Threats include increased competition and deteriorating economic conditions.
