13:25 EDTBIDU, YOKU, NTES, CYOU, RENNChinese Internet names decline after Renren guidance miss
Shares of Chinese Internet stocks are sinking after one of the names in the sector, Renren (RENN), last night reported higher than expected fourth quarter revenue but provided lower than expected first quarter revenue guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Chinese social network Renren reported Q4 revenue of $30.7M, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $30.15M. Its operating loss, however, came in at $42.6M, versus an operating loss of $22.7M in the same period a year earlier. Its online ad revenue tumbled 18% year-over-year, driven by increased competition and continued migration of user traffic to mobile devices from desktop computers, the company stated. Moreover, the social network provided first quarter revenue guidance of $23M-$25M, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $30.41M. "There are a limited number of players in China that are proactively educating and selling mobile solutions to brand advertisers in China," but Renren has had "some encouraging momentum" in mobile ads," said the company's CEO, Joe Chen, on its earnings conference call. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, search engine Baidu (BIDU) dropped 1% to $162, Internet video company Youku Tudou (YOKU) declined 1% to $30.40, Internet game and portal provider NetEase (NTES) lost 2% to $64.57, online game developer Changyou.com (CYOU) fell 1.4% to $28.50, and Renren tumbled 11% to $3.37.

05:59 EDTCYOUSohu online game subsidiary Changyou to invest in MoboTap
Sohu.com (SOHU) announced that its online game subsidiary, Changyou.com (CYOU) and MoboTap, a Cayman Islands company that is the mobile technology developer behind the Dolphin Browser, have entered into a definitive investment agreement pursuant to which Changyou will purchase 51% of the equity interests in MoboTap on a fully-diluted basis, for cash consideration of $91M. In addition, Changyou will provide $30M in funding to MoboTap by purchasing a zero-coupon convertible bond due in five years. Changyou will have the option, exercisable at any time when the bond is outstanding, to convert all or any part of the unpaid principal into shares of MoboTap at a conversion price that would result in Changyou's equity interest in MoboTap increasing to 60% on a fully-diluted basis, measured as of the closing under the Investment Agreement, if the option is exercised in full. The transaction is expected to close in August.
