Alibaba Is the Canary in China's Coal Mine - Bloomberg View
It turns out investors were right about Alibaba: No company is more on the front lines of China's economic shifts than Jack Ma's juggernaut. And that's just where the problems begin. [...] After months of putting the entire weight of the government behind saving the market, Beijing appears to have given up. The fallout from that realization will have unpredictable effects on 1.3 billion people indoctrinated to believe Beijing can control any crisis or narrative. As markets swoon and gross domestic product slides, consumers are delaying nonessential purchases. [...] Mass austerity has only just begun. [...] it would be interesting to see how the government responds to "large and widespread investment losses that could lead to a notable negative wealth effect which could weaken consumption, as well as grievances against the authorities." [...] Macau's GDP -26.4% last quarter [...] Chinese gamblers stayed home. [...] Ma created a better quarterly GDP report than Beijing.

Snowden documents show spy agencies exploiting issues with China’s most popular browser | PandoDaily
New reports from CBC News and the Intercept show that intelligence agencies in Canada, the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand exploited vulnerabilities in Alibaba’s UC Browser to surveil 500 million people. The agencies also planned to use various app stores to distribute their spyware. The reports indicate that UC Browser offered up all kinds of information about its users. This is notable because it’s the most popular Web browser in China and has an estimated 500 million users, making it a valuable target for spying. The problems are said to be limited to the Android version of the Web browser.

Yahoo to Spin Off Its Stake in Alibaba - NYTimes.com
Marissa Mayer said on Tuesday that the Internet company would spin off its 15.4 percent stake in Alibaba, China’s leading e-commerce company, into a separate company. The decision, which Wall Street has been waiting for since Ms. Mayer joined the company in 2012, cheered shareholders because they will directly reap all the remaining profit from Yahoo’s prescient investment, which cost almost nothing a decade ago but is now worth about $39.5 billion. In the process, Yahoo will avoid any taxes on the transaction but will be stripped of its single most valuable asset. The Alibaba stake alone now makes up nearly 85 percent of Yahoo’s market value. - via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8956129

Amazon: Warum Jeff Bezos Milliarden-Verluste kalt lassen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Management-Grundsätze Bezos' sind kein Geheimnis. Als er seine Unternehmensgründung 1997 an die Börse brachte, schrieb er einen Brief an Investoren, in dem er seine Strategie kurz und bündig darlegte und den er seitdem jedem neuen Geschäftsbericht beilegt. Darin findet sich der zentrale Grundsatz, nachhaltig und langfristig zu investieren - also nicht wegen kurzfristiger Gewinne oder um den Aktienkurs zu befeuern. Ein Kernsatz in dem Brief lautet: "Wir werden anstatt ängstlicher mutige Investitionsentscheidungen treffen, wo immer wir es als ausreichend wahrscheinlich einschätzen, Marktführer zu werden. Einige werden sich auszahlen, andere nicht. Dazugelernt haben werden wir in jedem Fall." Gleich darauf folgt die Klarstellung, dass Bezos künftige Cashflows wichtiger sind als Gewinne der Gegenwart.

Sure Stripe has more cash, but does it have a path to exit? | PandoDaily
The problem with raising capital at nosebleed valuations is that the number of scenarios under which a positive outcome is possible becomes greatly diminished. By raising at $3.5 billion, Stripe, [... and Investors ...] — are betting that the company can exit at or above $7 billion. That’s a steep price and largely eliminates acquisition as an option. The list of potential acquirers is likely limited to Facebook, Google, Apple, eBay, Amazon, and Alibaba in the tech sector. On the financial side, there are the large banks and credit card companies. But it’s hard to see anyone ponying up $7 billion to acquire Stripe, which has yet to prove that it has a sustainable business or attractive margins. [...] Not every round requires a doubling valuation, and in this case, it may turn out that everyone involved would be better if more modesty was applied.

Blockades and IPOs: China’s Great Firewall gives its companies an advantage over Western counterparts | PandoDaily
It’s only going to get harder for Western companies to operate in China. The government has even started to support the development of China-specific counterparts to popular software like the Windows operating system. Unless someone starts an “Uber for convincing a country like China to re-open its borders to Western technology companies” — which could only be called MarcoPolo or DickNixon, obviously — China’s coveted consumers will often be unreachable. Meanwhile, Chinese companies like Alibaba are going public on the New York Stock Exchange (feel free to insert a “fucking” in there if you’re really excited about it not being NASDAQ) and raising more money than any other public offering in the tumultuous history of public offerings. The road between China and the United States, it seems, only allows for travel in one direction. Nixon would be ashamed.

Thiel: Alibaba is “fundamentally a political investment” that I wouldn’t make | PandoDaily
it’s not the return potential that seemingly gives Thiel pause. It’s the uncertainty around Alibaba’s connection to (and dependency on) the Chinese government.“I do think that the Chinese Internet has been largely off limits to Western investors, it’s been firewalled off,” “If you look at the world from the perspective of companies like Facebook or Google, places like Saudi Arabia and Iran are way more tolerant than China. You can get on Facebook in Saudi Arabia and you can’t get on it in China. So China is in this very weird category of its own.” Alibaba’s fate is tied to its ability to appease Chinese state officials. “Alibaba is sort of this protected Chinese company – it will do well, but it is fundamentally a political entity that is somehow very deeply connected with the Chinese government,” [...] you’ll do well if it continues to stay in the good graces of the Chinese government, but it’s fundamentally a political investment.” [ + Chinas Economic Transformation Task ]

Alibaba: Roadshow-Auftakt in New York misslingt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Lange Schlangen am Eingang, überfüllte Räume wegen großen Andrangs, Stehplätze, ein verspäteter Beginn - für die Investoren begann das Alibaba-Event wenig luxuriös. Als Catering sollen ihnen dann noch abgepackte Truthahn-Sandwiches vorgesetzt worden sein. Vor allem aber inhaltlich konnte die Veranstaltung um den milliardenschweren Alibaba-Börsengang einige Anleger nicht überzeugen. "Habe ich was Neues erfahren? Ein klares Nein", sagte etwa Akram Yosri, Finanzmanager bei der 3iCapital Group. Andere Anleger äußerten sich der Nachrichtenagentur Reuters zufolge ähnlich: Sie hätten gerne gewusst, wie Alibaba zu Vorwürfen steht, bei der Besetzung des Managements zu intransparent zu sein - doch auch ihre Fragen seien nicht beantwortet worden.

Alibaba: Onlinehändler aus China will die Wall Street erobern - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Selbst Ma räumt Fallstricke ein: Der US-Börsengang eines so großen, ausländischen Unternehmens könnte dank kultureller und geopolitischer Differenzen auf "Skepsis aus verschiedensten Richtungen" stoßen. "Kontroversen" seien fast garantiert. Zu diesen Kontroversen gehöre Alibabas "einzigartige und innovative" Führungsstruktur, die die Macht in den Händen Weniger bündelt. Weitere potenzielle Probleme listet Alibaba in seinem IPO-Werbeprospekt auf: Vertrauen in die Marke, Verlässlichkeit des chinesischen Internets, Ärger mit den Kartellbehörden. In jedem Fall, versichert Ma, werde Alibaba seinem Motto treu bleiben: "Als Erstes kommen die Kunden, als zweites die Angestellten, als drittes die Shareholder." Manchen Aktionär freilich könnte diese Reihenfolge skeptisch stimmen.

At Alibaba, the Founder Is Squarely in Charge - NYTimes.com
Alibaba, a company started out of Mr. Ma’s apartment in 1999, is now a technology colossus worth more than American stalwarts like eBay and Hewlett-Packard. Under his leadership, Alibaba has become not just the dominant force in China’s e-commerce but also a symbol of the country’s breathtaking economic rise. The company has 250 million active buyers in China, and its orders account for more than 60 percent of all package deliveries in China. [... Discussing the business structure ie Cayman Island entity & V.I.E. and risks for shareholders ...] +++ Most members of the group declined to comment. In an interview, Mr. Shen defended such deals, explaining that Mr. Ma had formed a circle of trust, something common in Chinese business. +++ Analysts say that forging alliances with the government is a vital part of doing business in China. Companies see it as a way to improve their chances of securing approvals and licenses. +++

But the recent investments aren’t just about size.

How Do You Solve A Problem Like Marissa?
... Wall Street. ... but question remains :: Marissa likes to be lauded (that is what they write about the person - Marissa Mayer - they the tech press in SF/SV). Is she too shy to up-set people, within, making hard decisions, having the hard conversations? Cutting 30% of workforce, cutting this or that pig. Making Yahoo! her own bitch, communicating clearly that the road they travelled on doesn't lead them to a better, more sustainable, stable future? Is that what is holding her back - her liking to be liked, praised, lauded? Only she knows. And only months after a post-partum or post-mortem we will hear it from her. But consider this, there is no magic wand for Yahoo! Not one single trick that changes it all. Google was a self-runner, because of the magic wand called AdSense. She never had to make and asses (with incomplete information and a in a fast moving world) such difficult decisions. Never was she more visible and held publicly, by bystanders and amateurs, accountable.

With Alibaba IPO Filing Set to Arrive Tomorrow, Here’s Why It Does Matter to Silicon Valley | Re/code
Thus the big question: What will Mayer buy? Or will the money go to buying back shares? Or what? As many have correctly noted, the Alibaba stake has had a significant halo effect on Yahoo’s stock and, once public, the company will have a definite value that can be counted. And, more to the point, once the Alibaba impact is felt, it will become completely clear how the core Yahoo business is valued by Wall Street — right now, hardly at all — and whether the company is a good deal or not. That clarity means a lot of things for Mayer and Yahoo, including whether it could ever be a takeover target itself — a strange but not implausible scenario that has been brought up to me recently by many players who could pull off such a deal. ||| + I believe a major tie-up between Yahoo and AOL is still in the cards. http://recode.net/2014/05/01/yahoo-and-aol-are-still-on-a-collision-course/
