The analysts wrote, “We resume coverage of JD with a Buy rating and a $48 price target. Key Points China is the largest eCommerce market in the world. The China eCommerce market should exceed $1T in sales with 20% penetration of total China retail sales by 2019. There are two companies for investors to own to benefit from current growth and future opportunities in China, Alibaba (BABA, Buy, $$174.64) and JD. We have followed the development and growth of the eCommerce market for many years and believe Alibaba and JD are both well-managed and well-positioned leaders in China. The two leaders have effectively shut Amazon out of the eCommerce market in the region. JD is the more structured player with controlled logistics and an initial first-party model that has grown into a first-party / third-party hybrid. JD should triple its 2013 market share (~6%) by year-end (~18%).””
