Alibaba shares slump on slow Chinese spending

New Delhi, Nov 19 (TIWN) Alibaba shares slumped by more than 10 per cent in Hong Kong trade after the Chinese online retail giant warned of a slowdown in consumer spending, BBC reported.

The weak figures underscore the firm's struggles with increasing competition and Beijing's regulatory crackdown, the report said.  On Thursday, Alibaba's US-listed shares ended the New York trading session more than 11 per cent lower.  Alibaba chief executive Daniel Zhang told investors that increasing competition and slowing consumption in China were the main causes for the weaker growth.  Chinese shoppers have become more cautious about spending, with new coronavirus outbreaks, power shortages and concerns about the property market weighing on sentiment, the report said.  The latest figures do not include sales from this month's Singles Day, or "11.11 Global Shopping Festival," annual shopping festival.
