The company has already taken measures to support the distribution, which includes lowering the platform fees. The actual scope of the tragedy will be revealed with the publications of current and future financial data. For now, analysts anticipate the company to post EPS at $2.27 and the revenue of $22.66 billion. If the actual figures are weaker, it will be bad news for the Alibaba stock, which has been up by 29% over the past 12 months.
