Yahoo (YHOO +2.2%) jumps after disclosing in its Q1 10-Q Alibaba's calendar Q4 revenue rose 80% Y/Y to $1.84B, and its net income rose 171% to $642M. The revenue growth rate is actually faster than the 74% produced for the 12 months ending Sep. 30, and is bound to lift Yahoo investor hopes for a big post-IPO valuation.

    Alibaba's revenue numbers are better than FB. Its top line y/y growth is 2x FB's. its net income and NI margin is way better than FB's. Even if they go conservative on IPO pricing like bloomberg reported, dont see why it cant be $90B or $100B. A big diff for Alibaba is that it has pricing power. Whereas FB's advertisers are not sure if advertising on FB gets good ROI, Alibaba merchants understand that they have to sell and advertise on Alibaba. Its ecommerce market is a virtual monopoly, and its advertising ROI for merchants are very quantifiable and much better than what they can get from Baidu.
