Alibaba stock is expected to hit the market sometime in September, following one of the largest IPOs ever.
Many analysts expect Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA) to raise more than $20 billion. That would surpass the $19.65 billion Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) raised in 2008 and make Alibaba the largest U.S. IPO to date.
As that excitement grows, it won't just be retail investors clamoring for Alibaba stock. We've pinpointed two ETFs that are prime candidates to add BABA stock to their holdings in the upcoming months.
And the best part about this for investors is the two ETFs play two separate markets, all of which have sparked nice returns in 2014.
