Goldman Sachs on JD.com
As the demand for these products grows at a high rate in faster-growing economies like China (ASHR), the demand for timely delivery of these products could also increase. The investment firm raised its current target price for JD.com to $56.
Goldman Sachs wrote, “For China’s largest mobile/computers/IT retailer, we forecast further penetration in appliances (low vs. electronics), groceries (through omnichannel initiatives with Walmart, Daojia Dada), and apparel (cross-selling from JD Supermarket, investment in Farfetch).”
