Why is JD.com Stock Going up?

Considering that JD.com is an E-commerce behemoth, you might be wondering why is it going up in smoke? The answer to this question is a little more complicated than simply “it’s going up.” In this article, we’ll look at some of the factors driving its stock price upwards and a few of the reasons why it might be a good idea to consider investing in the company.

The company operates through three segments: Retail, Logistics, and Property. Retail is the company’s online retail operation. Its logistics segment includes both internal and external logistics businesses. Its property segment includes both real estate properties and overseas businesses.

The most important part of the company’s trifecta of operations is the omnichannel customer experience. In addition to providing retail products and services, the company also offers supply chain-based technologies in China. This includes Jingxi, an initiative that is part of the larger Google-owned Alphabet, and strategic partnerships with Shopify and Walmart. The company’s most recent earnings estimate revision has not done a lot to resuscitate interest in the company’s stock.

A closer look at the company’s financials reveals that the company has been redistributing a smattering of its net profits as dividends, a feat that is laudable, but still not a given. The stock is also expected to deliver a meager one year dividend yield of about 0%. Considering that, investors would be well advised to find other reinvestment opportunities if they’re looking to increase their equity position.
