LosersBABA -5.9% after reporting Q3 EPS of $1.63 misses by $0.04. Revenue of $12.76B (+51.5% Y/Y) beats by $400M. FY18 guidance was increased to a growth of 55% to 56% (was: 49% to 53%), which would represent a range of about $245.3B to $246.9B (consensus: $242.6B). Alibaba delivers solid ER and guidance, I believe the selloff is profit-taking. Other Chinese Tech stocks are also affected negatively. I will initiate my position if the selloff continues.
UPS -6.1% takes a hit despite ER beats. The company plans to make more than $12B in investments to expand its logistics network, increase pension funding and position the company to "further enhance share owner value."
