"Online shopping in some of the larger Chinese cities is already reaching saturation, which is driving Alibaba to look for other areas of growth," Edison wrote.
That's one reason Alibaba this week announced it had invested $4.63 billion for a 20% stake in Suning Commerce Group, one of the largest consumer electronics retail chains in China. It has more than 1,600 stores in 289 cities. The deal puts Alibaba in direct competition with China's largest online direct sales company, JD.com (NASDAQ:JD), which is comparable to Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN). The Alibaba partnership hits JD at the heart of its most important category, consumer electronics, where it generates about 80% of revenue and half its gross merchandise volume.
