JD.com (JD) Attempts IPO Base Breakout Ahead of Ali Baba (BABA) IPO

Posted by Gennady Kupershteyn on Aug 21, 2014 3:44:00 PM

JD.com (JD), considered the Amazon (AMZN) of China, has grown annual sales by 85% over the last three years and is expected to grow annual sales by 47% over the next three. Earnings are not expected to turn positive for at least another year and a half, but could grow at a triple digit rate once the company turns profitable.

The stock attempted to breakout out of an IPO base on August 19th in volume 121% above average. But the stock reversed and closed at the lows of the day below the $30.80 breakout (not unusual action for a volatile stock). The stock has spent the last two days consolidating around the breakout level and could be in a position to run another 20 - 30% in anticipation of the Ali Baba (BABA) IPO. Traders can attempt to take positions in the current range with tight stops just below $30.
