Could This Company Be Worth $200 Billion After Its IPO?
The following video is from Wednesday's installment of The Motley Fool's Weekly Tech Review, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Eric Bleeker and Lyons George look at the biggest stories driving the tech sector this week.
In the video, Eric and Lyons discuss a future IPO that should be on all investors' radars. Bloomberg has reported that Chinese company Alibaba is eyeing an IPO in 2013 or 2014, and the numbers around its potential value after the IPO are staggering. The company is expected to compete with Facebook's post-IPO $100 billion valuation. Bloomberg's report even included word that one asset management company is pinning a potential $200 billion value on the company by the end of 2014.
The two chat about why Alibaba is such a special opportunity -- and why comparisons to Amazon.com or eBay aren't entirely in line with Alibaba's potential. Also, Eric discusses some alternative ways to get exposure to Alibaba without investing directly in the company.
