    ultimately i think i would be better off buying into a jewish ponzi scheme in new york than a chinese digital capital network in bejing. i can't even pronounce remnibi.

    Maybe so, maybe so. Us little people rarely do well with IPOs anyway, all the big boys already got in beforehand, and IPO prices usually take a dive immediately post-IPO and don't come back up for awhile. As far as that complicated foreigner currency word, b, spelling it a little differently would likely help with the pronunciation.

    yuan. there, is that better?

    don't forget that alibaba is an online shopping, trading/banking, payment network. all digitally based out of china, one of the world's foremost transparent capitalist markets, right? and it's named for a famous arabian knights story, alibaba and the 40 thieves.

    the sarcasm and setup of the con is almost too hard to resist. you stick your money/digital credits in that one and they will at some point disappear.

    Search seeking alpha and find the US commission eport on Alibaba and the other VIEs offered. Scary stuff! I doubt it has any short term issues but long time investing in any of these VIEs is down right scary!

    Not that any regular investor will get BABA at $68, but, Alibaba Group Holding priced its initial public offering at $68 a share, the top end of the expected range, raising $21.8 billion on Thursday.

    It would be nice if we get a Facebook-like reaction and it sells off initially... but I don't think this one will do that. It is very popular but not quite as hyped as Facebook's IPO a couple of years ago.

    If I can get it for less than $75 I will jump in. No real fundamental reason. I just hate to over pay for anything.

    How is Alibaba allowed to be publicly traded with this kind of business going on, on their sites?
