Back in 2014, Alibaba made headlines as the then-biggest initial public offering ever and the value of the deal was around $25 billion, according to reports. While the IPO was priced at $68 per share, the stock closed about 38 percent higher on its first trading day at $93.89.
If you had invested in Alibaba back then, you would have made some decent returns. According to CNBC calculations, a $1,000 investment made at the closing price on Sept. 19, 2014 would be worth about $1,921.50 as of Monday, Mar. 11.
That is a 92.15 percent jump in value from the closing price on the first day of trading. Alibaba doesn't pay any dividends.
To be clear, a stock's past performance does not mean its future will hold similar results.
