With this news, Ant Group — a financial affiliate of Alibaba — will handle multiple pieces of the NBA’s presence in China, including video streams. This will result in NBA content being viewable on an Alipay channel.
It’s worth noting this news comes after NBA games were pulled by CCTV in October 2019 after “then-Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted to support widespread protests in Hong Kong.”
What This Means for BABA Stock
Shares of BABA stock aren’t rising alongside the Ant Group news. That makes sense, as Ant Group has undergone a restructuring process to distance itself from Alibaba. That said, investors do still watch for changes in BABA stock when Ant Group makes the news.
While today’s news could have been a boon to BABA stock, other factors are affecting shares. These include JD.com (NASDAQ:JD) considering subsidies to enact a price war against rival e-commerce platform PDD (NASDAQ:PDD). This has several Chinese e-commerce stocks falling today, including BABA.
BABA stock is down 3.3% as of Tuesday morning.
