Alibaba Profit Q2: Company will face investors as repression on Beijing’s business grows

“A short-term shock does not change the nature of the long-term positive trend,” read a commentary published in the Securities Times last week. “China’s economy and markets are at an advantage in terms of its width and depth.” Beijing’s broader clampdown hasn’t let up. Alibaba’s New York-listed shares plunged nearly 14% during July as investors grew nervous about Chinese tech, including the ability of such companies to trade outside of China. (Alibaba also trades in Hong Kong; its dual-listing in 2019 was touted as a symbolic homecoming for the company.)Shortly after ride-hailing giant Didi went public on the New York Stock Exchange at the end of June, Beijing banned it from app stores over cybersecurity concerns. The stock plunged, and is still trading well below its IPO price of $14 a share. US securities regulators have also expressed concern about future Chinese public offerings, with the Securities and Exchange Commission telling staff last week to ask such firms to disclose more information before trading plans can be approved. Regulatory scrutiny on a broadening number of industries has also spooked investors. A stock market sell-off last week wiped out hundreds of billions of dollars in market value for several prominent Chinese tech companies, including Alibaba. That came as Beijing issued directives for education tech, food delivery and other sectors.Chinese state media has since urged investors to stay calm, with one newspaper telling investors to “have confidence in the market.” — Paul R. La Monica, Laura He and Michelle Toh contributed to this report.

In May, Alibaba (BABA) said it posted a loss of about $1.2 billion for its first quarter — a hit that was mainly due to a record $2.8 billion fine that Beijing imposed on the company after accusing it of behaving like a monopoly. Joe Tsai, Alibaba Group’s co-founder and executive vice chairman, played down concerns when the fine was announced, saying that the company was “pleased” that it could “put this matter behind us.” But the prospect of further scrutiny from Chinese regulators looms large.

“With this penalty decision, we’ve received a good guidance on some of the specific issues under the anti-competitive law,” he told investors on a call at the time. The company is expected to report revenue of 209 billion yuan ($32 billion) for the quarter, a 36% increase from a year earlier, according to data provider Refinitiv.
