Is Pinduoduo Catching Up to Alibaba and JD.com?

JD

Pinduoduo remains unprofitable, but its adjusted net loss narrowed year over year from RMB 673.4 million to RMB 411.3 million ($59.9 million), or $0.04 per share -- which beat expectations by $0.15. Pinduoduo's average monthly active users (MAUs) rose 88% annually to 366 million during the quarter, and its number of active buyers over the past 12 months rose 41% to 483 million. Those numbers seem to indicate that Pinduoduo is bigger than JD, but it generates only about 5% as much quarterly revenue as JD because its order sizes are much lower. JD takes on inventories and handles logistics as a direct retailer (which enables it to generate higher e-commerce revenues than Pinduoduo or Alibaba), but that approach requires much more capital. However, the average active buyer on Pinduoduo spent RMB 1,467.5 ($206.90) on the platform over the past 12 months -- a 92% jump from a year earlier.

Better Buy: Alibaba vs. JD.com

JD

The trade war has taken a toll on the country's overall growth, and the Chinese currency has depreciated significantly versus the U.S. dollar. That means even if Chinese companies are doing well, every dollar of their earnings in Chinese yuan is worth less in dollars to U.S. investors. Yet the current storm clouds could provide long-term investors with an opportunity. Both companies reported healthy growth above analyst expectations. For those looking to profit from the Chinese consumer when others are fearful, which consumer-centric Chinese e-commerce player is the best buy today? JD.com, however, embraced the hard work of selling first party (1P) goods as its initial business model, building out its own massive warehouse footprint across China and taking ownership of physical goods itself. While far less profitable than Alibaba's model, JD is able to better control the quality of the customer experience, and initially concentrated on high-value goods like appliances and electronics for well-off customers.

JD.com's Accelerating Growth Could Crush the Bears

JD

Its revenue rose 23% annually to 150.3 billion RMB ($21.9 billion), topping estimates by nearly $1 billion and marking its strongest growth in three quarters. JD's adjusted net income rose more than sevenfold to 3.56 billion RMB ($518.4 million), or 2.30 RMB ($0.33) per ADS, which also beat expectations by 25 cents. JD's big beat indicates that many fears about the company -- including competition from Alibaba(NYSE: BABA) and Pinduoduo, the slowdown in the Chinese economy, and the trade war -- were overblown. As a result, shares of JD, which remain down about 30% over the past two years, could still have room to run. JD's adjusted operating margin improved 200 basis points annually to 2.1%, while its adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 210 basis points to 2.9%. As JD upgrades its logistics services with new automated solutions -- including autonomous delivery vehicles and drones -- those margins could keep rising.

Alibaba rival JD.com beats revenue forecasts on China stimulus - Nikkei Asian Review

JD

Alibaba rival JD.com beats revenue forecasts on China stimulus. HONG KONG -- China's second-largest e-commerce group, JD.com, topped market expectations for quarterly revenue but fell short on net profit, as the company known for high-end products boosted efforts to sell to shoppers on tighter budgets. JD.com logged a net profit of 618.8 million yuan in the quarter, improving from a net loss of 2.21 billion yuan in the year-ago period. But the profit still missed Wall Street's expectations, as analysts predicted net income of 658.34 million, according to Refinitiv. That potential led Xu Lei, the chief executive of JD Retail, to tell analysts on the call that the company will emphasize "lower-tier consumers" in the coming months. But such a move opens JD.com to competition with Alibaba Group Holding's Taobao as well as Pinduoduo, two online marketplaces that have long positioned themselves to serve cost-sensitive buyers.

With Right Partners Now in Place, JD Stock Might Just Be a Buy

BABA JD +2 more BABA JD WMT AMZN

InvestorPlaceAugust 13, 2019, 4:17 PM UTC. Whenever JD.Com (NASDAQ:JD) is examined it’s compared to bigger rival Alibaba Group Holding (NYSE:BABA), and for the most part, that’s not an unreasonable comparison. Both are in China, primarily taking aim at China’s consumers.But JD stock is materially different from BABA stock. Indeed, without the same scale, Alibaba’s Tmall enjoys, it’s likely that Alibaba would eventually capture market share from JD.com. Still, it’s a development that sets the stage for growth in a market where Google has seen little, and where Chinese merchants have struggled even when utilizing Amazon.com. As Juozas Kaziukenas, founder of Marketplace Pulse, explained it, “It’s probably a much better approach to have a Chinese company to deal with Chinese sellers, Obviously JD has much more experience in this.
