Question for investors who hold BABA stock - Are you happy with the spin-off of Cloud Intelligence Group?

On the results - The company posted revenue of 208.20 billion yuan ($30.12 billion) for the three months ended March, compared with Refinitiv's consensus estimate of 210.3 billion yuan.

Non-GAAP earnings per share: 1.34 yuan vs. expectations of 2.08 yuan


I wasn't expecting that. I had high expectations for $BABA+0.0%, although I didn't invest in it. So I'm glad I didn't miss out.

I'm the same way :)

Mixed feelings too, $BABA+0.0% will lose profit

I think the cloud has been in profit for about one quarter so far?:)

That's pain... the only thing I trusted about Alibaba anymore...

Well, that could be good news for you, right? You get shares of a separate cloud unit, after the separation you can sell the rest and buy what you believe in the most;)

Well like yeah... but I'll sell the rest of the show in a big ouch 😂

So the designation as a separate unit is not such a surprise, it was to be expected when they announced the possibilities for the IPO that this would be among the first. But what surprised me is the method and that it will then be distributed to existing shareholders as a dividend. I hadn't counted on this at all and thought that the cash/shares would be siphoned off or that BABA would buy back the shares.
