Taking the safer risky bet: I’m buying ALIBABA (BABA) rather than Vips April 30, 2015

I feel a dangerous attraction: I like to buy recent IPOs below the IPO price.

It boosts my ego: ‘Hey, I am smarter then the “HIPE” guys!”

If flattens my laziness: “They had to go through all the uncomfortability of signing an IPO, then had to wait. Blah I do it now and at a better price with a simple click”.

Of course I know all that is wrong. I am likely to chose the companies that have lost momentum. Let’s say I was lucky with Facebook, so I am going for ALIBABA now.

Numbers are quite good, except a little ringing bell: “why do they make debt if the say to have much hoarded cash?”
