10:55 EDTBIDUBaidu advances after analyst raises stock rating
Shares of Chinese search engine Baidu (BIDU) are advancing after Citigroup upgraded the stock this morning. WHAT'S NEW: Baidu's revenue from mobile Internet users should continue to increase in upcoming quarters, Citigroup analyst Muzhi Li wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Mobile Internet yields higher profit margins than desktop, added Li. Moreover, the increase in Baidu's mobile Internet revenue should raise the valuation of its stock, he believes. Baidu should also be boosted by its acquisition of Chinese Internet company 91 Wireless, which has a high growth mobile app and mobile games business, the analyst added. Li upgraded Baidu to Buy from Neutral, and increased the target on the shares to $167 from $113. TODAY'S PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Baidu rose $3.30, or 2.4%, to $139.

06:33 EDTBIDUChinese public growing unhappy with Baidu, WSJ says
The people of China are becoming unhappy with Baidu, and the internet search giant needs to exercise a balance to maintain profit and public interest, Wall Street Journal columnist Li Yuan says. Yuan brings up the example of Pan Longfei, a man with a rare heart and kidney disease who was led astray to a private hospital featured on a sponsored link on Baidu, when a public hospital in Guangzhou was able to properly diagnose and treat his condition better. Baidu is the largest search engine in China with approximately 80% of the market, the report says. Pan joined a revolt against Bauidu after seeing a post claiming that Baidu populated the web with information from shoddy businesses, including a hospital which reportedly didn't have a medical license, the report says.
