Alibaba plan to split itself up into six parts has been cheered by investors who see it as a pathway to unlocking value in the Chinese tech giant, whose stock has been battered in the past two years amid a wave of regulatory pressures.

Alibaba (ticker: BABA) stock jumped 14.3% on Tuesday, its best day in many months, after the group said it would split into six units and open the door to these subsidiaries going public on their own.
