Stocks remained mixed on Wednesday as investors seem keen on putting the first half of 2022 behind them. The Dow Jones edged higher by 82 basis points, the S&P 500 fell by 0.07%, and the NASDAQ posted a minimal 0.03% loss during the session.

A couple of AliBaba’s bigger rivals, JD.Com (NASDAQ:JD) and Tencent have renewed a partnership that sees JD’s eCommerce website provide preferential treatment to WeChat users. This is an important group of users as WeChat accounts for nearly 1.3 billion monthly active users, most of whom are in China. The deal is for $220 million in JD.Com shares. Tencent was one of the largest investors in JD.com before selling a majority of its stake in the company earlier this year, reducing its position to just 2.3%.
