In recent years, Alibaba (9988) has been constantly reduced by major shareholder Softbank and obscure big players. When the stock price has been fluctuating on the “red bottom” recently, it announced yesterday that it is seeking to list on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (388) by the end of this year. The listing became a double master listing. The big bank believes the move will help Alibaba get it listed in the Southbound Stock Connect list next year, and could absorb a significant amount of Bishui to prop up the stock price.

Ali said that since the second listing in Hong Kong in November 2019, the general trading on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange has increased significantly. At the end of June this year, the average daily trading volume was about 700 million US dollars (about 5.46 US dollars). 1 billion Hong Kong dollars) The average daily turnover in the United States is about 3.2 billion dollars. As the group has a large number of business operations in Greater China, the case of a dual core listing is expected to help broaden the investor base and bring in additional liquidity, especially to reach more investors from the mainland and other parts of Asia.

Alibaba shares rose yesterday, up 4.8 yuan or 4.8% on the day to close at 104.4 yuan, the third largest increase in blue-chip stocks, and a bullish locomotive for Hong Kong stocks. However, Alibaba is still down 6.7% this month and 12.2% this year.–tw1080phdquality

Currently, the list of traded Southern stocks does not include secondary listed stocks. Market speculation is related to regulatory issues of the main listing location. However, in recent months, the Hong Kong government has revealed that it is actively lobbying the mainland to allow all Chinese concept stocks to be included in southern trade. According to a report from Daiwa, Ali’s change this time does not involve issuing new shares, but must meet more local regulatory requirements, such as disclosing a share pledge to the controlling shareholder. Stock quotes, such as Tencent Holdings (700) and Meituan (3690), currently occupy 7% and 10% of Beishui’s positions, respectively. The bank maintained Ali’s “buy” rating, noting that since Ali’s current market position is relatively low, Bishoy’s absorption could boost the stock price significantly.
