Alibaba stock has decreased in price by about 40% year-over-year, but has backpedaled 47% since hitting its all-time high of $319.32 last October. Additionally, shares of BABA have decreased 26% year-to-date and are up just 11% from last week's two-year low of $152.80. Long-term pressure has stemmed from the overhead 80-day moving average.

On the earnings front, Alibaba has beat earnings expectations on three of its last four quarterly earnings reports. For Q3 of 2020, BABA beat analyst estimates by a margin of $0.15, reporting an EPS of $2.21. For Q4 of 2020, Alibaba beat expectations by a margin of $0.60, reporting an increased EPS of $2.78. For Q1 of 2021, BABA outperformed estimates by a margin of $0.17, reporting another increase in EPS up to $3.35 For Q2 of 2021, in the most recent quarterly report, Alibaba reported an EPS of $1.59 and missed expectations by a margin of $0.13. Meanwhile, Wall Street is expecting to see massive earnings growth from Alibaba with an estimate of $14.43 EPS for its third quarter.

From a fundamental point of view, BABA has displayed incredible growth for many years now, increasing revenue. In addition, Alibaba stock’s bearish run over the past year has provided a great opportunity for investors to buy BABA at great valuation.

At a market cap of $458 billion, investors will have a hard time finding another company of a similar size with such a low price-earnings ratio like 20.43. Alibaba stock also has a forward price-earnings ratio of 17.70, further proving it to be a bargain. Overall, BABA has potential for value and growth investors alike, considering the Alibaba's business model, growth rate, current sales volume, and potential to continue rapid expansion.
