Analyst Note| Chelsey Tam |
The readthrough from Vipshop’s (VIPS, not covered by Morningstar) first-quarter earnings for our e-commerce coverage is generally positive, with continual recovery in consumption. This is especially the case for Alibaba Group, whose core category is apparel; and PDD Holdings, which is a value-for-money platform. Vipshop is a leading online discount retailer for brands in China that focus on the apparel category. We make no changes to our fair value estimates for Alibaba, PDD and JD.com.
