SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma has been left off a list of Chinese entrepreneurial leaders published by state media - the snub underscoring how just far he has fallen out of favour with Beijing. China's best known businessman was not mentioned in an front-page article published by the Shanghai Securities News.

Instead Huawei Technologies' Ren Zhengfei, Xiaomi Corp's Lei Jun and BYD's Wang Chuanfu were lauded for their contributions. It was published on Tuesday when Alibaba will also report its latest.
