Amazon of Asia now owns 19% of all XPEV (Tesla of Asia) shares. If you invested in Xpeng (NYSE:XPV) during the IPO day and you are still holding your shares-hold on a little bit more, it will pay off, big time. At least that is what the common sense is talking to me.
According to WSJ journalist, Dave Sebastian, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (HKG:9988) has boosted its stake in the Chinese electric-vehicle maker XPeng Inc. to 19% of Class A ordinary shares after XPeng’s IPO late last month.
$XPEV Alibaba disclosed it owns 95.95M ADSs (191.9M ordinary shares), 19% of outstanding shares as of 9/8. $XPEV last close $17.73, ~18% above its IPO offering price, falling from $25 the high reached after IPO.— HedgeMind (@HedgeMind) September 8, 2020
