Killexams : Alibaba Is Joining the AI Race. It’s Developing a ChatGPT Rival.

Killexams : Is It Too Late to Buy Alibaba Stock?

Alibaba's (BABA -3.01%) stock is up more than 20% this year as China relaxed the zero-COVID restrictions that were throttling its economic growth. Is it too late to buy Alibaba right now, or does it still have more room to run this year?

Why did Alibaba's stock initially collapse?

Alibaba's stock closed at its all-time high of $317.14 on Oct. 27, 2020. At the time, many investors considered it to be a solid long-term investment because it was China's largest e-commerce and cloud platform company.

But two years later, Alibaba's stock dropped below its IPO price of $68. That collapse was caused by a painful streak of regulatory, macroeconomic, and competitive challenges.

First, Alibaba was hit by an antitrust probe in China, which resulted in a $2.75 billion fine and new restrictions on its e-commerce business. The Chinese government also fined Alibaba for its previously unapproved investments and acquisitions, and it indefinitely suspended the IPO of Alibaba's fintech affiliate Ant Group. U.S. regulators also threatened to delist shares of Chinese companies if they didn't open their books to independent auditors.

Meanwhile, China's economic growth cooled off, and that slowdown was exacerbated by the unpredictable zero-COVID lockdowns. The government-imposed restrictions on Alibaba's e-commerce business -- which barred its exclusive deals with merchants and excessive promotions -- also made it easier for smaller e-commerce players like JD.com (JD -2.00%) and Pinduoduo (PDD -3.48%) to catch up. The growth of Alibaba Cloud also decelerated amid those macro headwinds.

All those headwinds made Alibaba a tough stock to love. In fiscal 2021 (which ended on March 31, 2021), its revenue and adjusted earnings per share (EPS) rose 41% and 23%, respectively. But in fiscal 2022, its revenue only grew 19% as its adjusted EPS dropped 19%. For fiscal 2023, analysts expect its revenue and adjusted EPS to rise 10% and 6%, respectively.

Are Alibaba's valuations still attractive?

Alibaba's high-growth days might be over, but its stock looks cheap at 12 times forward earnings. JD.com and Pinduoduo, which are both growing faster than Alibaba, trade at 20 and 22 times forward earnings, respectively.

Alibaba's stock is still trading at a discount because the regulatory headwinds haven't fully dissipated yet. Over the past few months, the Chinese government acquired "golden shares" (which have special voting and veto rights) in two of Alibaba's domestic businesses -- Youku Tudou's film and TV unit, and a research and development division called Guangzhou Lujiao. That creeping influence indicates the Chinese government still plans to tighten its grip on Alibaba's sprawling digital ecosystem.

The Biden administration's ban on all advanced chip sales to China, which took effect last October, also barred Alibaba from licensing new Arm-based server chip designs from SoftBank's (SFTB.Y -1.75%) Arm Holdings. Those restrictions could potentially curb the growth of Alibaba's cloud business and reduce the effectiveness of its artificial intelligence algorithms.

As for the delisting threats in the U.S., they still haven't been resolved, even though China started to allow American regulators to review Chinese audits of those companies last December. That falls short of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board's demand for unrestricted access, so Alibaba and its peers could still be delisted if a deal isn't reached.

But don't overlook its other near-term problems

Even if we look past all those regulatory challenges, Alibaba's near-term prospects look grim. Its sales during Singles Day in 2022 -- the Chinese equivalent to Black Friday, which occurs around Nov. 11 -- stayed roughly flat from the previous year. JD's and Pinduoduo's superior growth also suggests that many of Alibaba's wounds were either self-inflicted or caused by the government, instead of the broader macroeconomic and COVID-related headwinds.

As the growth of Alibaba's Chinese commerce business decelerates, it's relying more on its lower-margin businesses -- including its direct sales platforms, logistics network, brick-and-mortar stores, and overseas marketplaces (including Lazada and Trendyol) -- to drive its sales growth. That's worrisome because Alibaba generates all of its profits from its commerce segment -- which in turn subsidizes the expansion of its unprofitable cloud, digital media, and innovation initiatives divisions.

After taking all these issues into account, I simply can't recommend buying Alibaba as a post-COVID reopening play in China. If you want some exposure to that same trend, Pinduoduo -- which is better streamlined than Alibaba and faces fewer regulatory headwinds -- would arguably be a much better play.

Killexams : Alibaba is launching a ChatGPT rival too

The Chinese behemoth said it was testing an artificial intelligence-powered chatbot internally. It did not share details of when it would launch or what the application would be called.

"Frontier innovations such as large language models and generative AI have been our [focus] areas since the formation of DAMO in 2017," an Alibaba (BABA) spokesperson told CNN in a Thursday statement, referring to an acronym for the company's research arm that focuses on machine intelligence, data computing and robotics.

"As a technology leader, we will continue to invest in turning cutting-edge innovations into value-added applications for our customers as well as their end-users."

Alibaba's Hong Kong-listed shares ticked up 1.4% on Thursday morning.

Companies around the world are racing to develop and release their own versions of ChatGPT, the application that allows users to automatically write essays or pass tests.

The tool is built on a large language model, which is trained on vast troves of data online in order to generate compelling responses to user prompts. Experts have long warned that these tools have the potential to spread inaccurate information.

This week, Google (GOOGL) and Chinese search engine giant Baidu (BIDU) both unveiled plans to launch similar services of their own.
Google's tool, named "Bard," will roll out to the public in the coming weeks, while Baidu's bot, called "Wenxin Yiyan" in Chinese or "ERNIE Bot" in English, will launch in March.
Bard suffered an embarrassing setback this week, however, after producing an incorrect response during a public demonstration.

Shares in Google's parent company, Alphabet, fell nearly 8% Wednesday following the news.

Microsoft (MSFT), too, has gotten in the game. The firm announced a makeover for its Bing search engine on Tuesday, saying it would update the platform to answer questions, chat with users and produce content in response to prompts using artificial intelligence.
The company is also investing billions of dollars in OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT.

Killexams : Chinese tech giant Alibaba is working on its own competitor to ChatGPT

At this point, Apple might as well just go ahead and announce it is working on a ChatGPT rival.

As reported by CNBC, Alibaba, the Chinese technology giant Alibaba has announced that it is working on its own competitor to ChatGPT, the conversational AI developed by OpenAI that has taken the tech industry by storm over the last few months.

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba told CNBC Wednesday that it is working on a rival to ChatGPT, joining the flurry of tech firms to jump on board the chatbot hype. A company spokesperson said the company is working on a ChatGPT-style of technology and it is currently being tested internally at the firm.

While Alibaba says that the technology has been in development since 2017 and testing is already being done internally at the company, it would not tell the outlet when users can actually expect to get their hands on the product.

A spokesperson for the company said that “as a technology leader, we will continue to invest in turning cutting-edge innovations into value-added applications for our customers as well as their end-users through cloud services.”

Alibaba is the latest tech giant to wade into the AI wars that are starting to heat up. Just this week, both Microsoft and Google held events to showcase their advancements in artificial intelligence. For Microsoft, the company announced a brand new version of Bing, the company’s search engine, and Edge, its web browser. Both new versions incorporate the next generation of GPT, Open AI’s conversational AI technology.

Google, on the other hand, announced some notable AI updates to both search and maps. It also revealed Bard a few days ago, the company’s competitor to the new version of Bing. The first demo of Google’s AI chatbot, however, contained a pretty embarrassing error when it said the James Webb Space Telescope was the first to discover planets outside of our solar system. That’s incorrect.

The AI wars are here!

If it seems like everyone is rushing to develop an alternative to ChatGPT, you're not wrong. Chinese online commerce heavyweight Alibaba has confirmed to CNBC that it's working on its equivalent to OpenAI's hit AI chatbot. The company isn't detailing features or offering a release schedule, but says it has been developing generative AI since 2017 and is in the middle of internal testing.

The reveal comes as multiple tech giants have introduced rivals to or spinoffs of ChatGPT this week. Google unveiled Bard, while China's Baidu said it was testing "Ernie Bot." Microsoft, meanwhile, launched a redesigned Bing that uses a "much more powerful" language model built with OpenAI's help. The text-generating AI is considered particularly useful for search, where it can provide detailed responses to very specific questions.

Alibaba hasn't said how it would put the AI to work. However, the company is a powerhouse in online shopping and has its fingers in numerous other fields ranging from cloud computing through to finance. A counterpart to ChatGPT could be useful in many of these categories, and might help Alibaba challenge Baidu and other Chinese firms hoping to wield AI as a competitive advantage.

Killexams : Alibaba sells remaining stake in top Indian online payment provider Paytm

Alibaba.com Singapore E-commerce Private Ltd sold 21.43 million shares of One 97 Communications, the parent company of Paytm, at 642.74 rupees apiece, according to Friday data from India's National Stock Exchange (NSE). The deal is worth about 13.77 billion rupees ($167 million), according to CNN calculations.

In January, Alibaba sold about 3% of Paytm for $125 million, cutting its holdings from 6.26%, based on NSE data.

With Friday's deal, it has sold its entire direct stake in Paytm.

Shares in One 97 Communications plunged nearly 8% on Friday. It bounced back slightly on Monday morning. Alibaba and Paytm didn't immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.

'India's Alipay'

Founded in 2010, Paytm is India's largest payment platform, with more than 300 million registered customers and over 20 million merchants. It's backed by big name investors such as Ant Group, an affiliate of Alibaba, Softbank (SFTBF) and Warrent Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA).

Alibaba and Ant Group together made a "strategic" investment in Paytm in September 2015, in an extension of the initial investment made by Ant in February of that year.

At that point, Alibaba said the investment would enhance its ability to tap opportunities in India's fast-growing mobile commerce market and digital finance industry. Paytm and Ant Group had been working on "synergies" since Ant made the initial investment, the company said.

Ant Group, which operates China's leading digital payment app Alipay, remains Paytm's largest shareholder with a 25% stake, according to the most exact data from Refinitiv Eikon.

Alibaba has gradually exited its investments in India, after New Delhi imposed restrictions in 2020 that made it difficult for Chinese investors to invest in Indian firms.
China and India share a disputed border that has long been the source of friction between New Delhi and Beijing, with tensions escalating sharply in June 2020, when hand-to-hand fighting between the two sides in the Himalayas resulted in the deaths of at least 20 Indian and four Chinese soldiers.
Last December, Indian and Chinese troops clashed again along the border, which at the time was the first known incident between the two nuclear-armed Asian powers in nearly two years — though video later emerged suggesting a previously unreported clash occurred in 2021.
In early 2021, Alibaba sold a major stake in BigBasket, an online grocery retailer, to Indian conglomerate Tata Group. In May 2022, Alibaba and Ant Group offloaded their entire stake in Paytm Mall, the e-commerce platform of Paytm. In November 2022, Ant Group reportedly sold a stake of about 3% in Zomato for $200 million, according to Reuters.
Alibaba itself has also been under pressure from domestic regulatory crackdowns and economic headwinds. A government campaign aimed at reining in the country's technology giants, coupled with a weak economy, has sharply slowed sales growth at the company, battered its share price and made business expansion more difficult.

Last year, Alibaba posted flat revenue growth for the first time since going public in 2014.

CNN's Simone McCarthy contributed to this report.
