After this week and the prior week’s Wall Street blood bath, portfolios lost less 4/28/2022 towards the end of the market day. Alibaba (BABA) has been struggling down in the 80’s as questions ranging from questionable accounting practices in Chinese listed stocks to their growth outlook.

Amazon reports a net loss that rocks the market. The joke is, what do you expect! Supply chains are/were locked up and at scale, imagine all the items that were not being sold as a result.
