Alibaba: IPO Lockup Expiration

|Includes: Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA)
  • March 18, 2015, concludes the 180-day lockup period on BABA.
  • At this point, BABA's 20+ major pre-IPO shareholders will have first chance to take profits on one of the most high-profile IPOs in history.
  • BABA's strong quarterly earnings will not likely detract from the desire of its insiders to at least cash out on some of their holdings.
  • We suggest selling BABA in the days prior to the event to take full advantage of potential declines.

Disclosure: The author is short BABA.
