NASDAQ: Alibaba () and Amazon ( AMZN) are two of the undisputed leaders of the e-commerce industry. BABA is the top e-commerce platform in China by profit, while Amazon is by revenue as well as profit. Beyond the fact that they have similar core businesses, both Amazon and Alibaba also have cloud computing segments.
#TLDR it becomes hard to recommend Alibaba to the most risk-averse investors among us. Investors vary in terms of how much risk they’re willing to bear, and Amazon is likely to offer a less frightening experience than Alibaba will.
