An analyst that has been closely following on the companies’ progress has come out clearly to state that both business gurus have over the years witnessed hyper growth. But he added that it was critical to point out the fact that the shares of the two business gurus only started taking off at the start of this year.
The analyst opined, “We started a portfolio at the end of September and one (of three) first buys were shares in JD.com (JD). It is clear for anyone to see that the shares have to this point in time gone anywhere. However, we will keep on keeping on.”
