Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) shares have popped 2% due to technical buying today. Sentiment around Chinese internet stocks has improved as the previously frothy relationship between the U.S. and China looks to thaw as the two nations work toward resolving the North Korean nuclear issue. Recently Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with the Chinese President, and President Trump is expected to meet with Xi Jinping soon as well. If the Chinese-U.S. relationship improves, the risk of a damaging trade war is lower. 86 top funds were long Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) as of the most recent 13-F reporting period, down 18 funds from the previous quarter.

Gary Nachman of BMO Capital reiterates that Jazz is a ‘top pick’ and feels the data substantially de-risks the program. 34 top funds were long Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc – Ordinary Shares (NASDAQ:JAZZ) at the end of December, down 7 funds from the previous quarter.
