Lentuo International (LAS) announced that it has signed an agreement with Sohu Auto, a business unit of Sohu.com (SOHU), to create a fully integrated online-to-offline platform for pre-owned cars in China. Sohu Auto will act as online marketing partner for this platform. The platform will expand Lentuo's ability to reach a larger group of car buyers and allow it to meet the demand from younger Chinese who increasingly shop for cars on the internet. Under the terms of the agreement, Lentuo will act as the exclusive after-sales service provider for pre-owned cars certified by Sohu as long as Lentuo meets Sohu's standards. On the physical side of the platform, Lentuo announced on February 18 that it will convert an existing new car showroom in South Beijing into an integrated pre-owned flagship store for mid-to-high end cars. The online side of the platform will leverage Sohu Auto's technological knowledge and IT resources to enhance the O2O platform and build big data analytical tools. The two parties plan to expand the platform to the rest of the country in the future.

10:52 EDTSOHUBaidu rises after profits beat expectations
Chinese Internet search engine Baidu (BIDU) is climbing after the company reported higher than expected profits and in-line revenue. WHAT'S NEW: Baidu reported third quarter earnings per share, excluding certain items, of $1.90, versus analysts' consensus outlook of $1.69. The company's revenue came in at $2.2B, in-line with the consensus outlook. Baidu provided Q4 revenue guidance of $2.26B-$2.32B, versus the consensus outlook of $2.3B. Last quarter, Baidu had more traffic from mobile devices than PCs, and mobile traffic generated 36% of its revenue, the company noted. "In the third quarter, our investments in mobile continued to pay off as mobile proved once again to be a strong driver of topline growth," said Baidu CFO Jennifer Li. ANALYST REACTION: Baidu's investment in mobile is starting to pay off, agreed Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster in a note to investors today. Additionally, the impact to Baidu from its investments in mobile appear not to have been as drastic as previously thought, and the company remains "essentially unchallenged" in the Chinese search market, wrote the analyst. He raised his price target on the shares to $267 from $222 and kept an Overweight rating on the stock. Meanwhile, research firm Stifel Nicolaus reported that the company's gross margin was about 1.5 percentage points ahead of expectations in Q3. Baidu is on track to generate about 65% of its queries from mobile devices in a year, at which point it may significantly increase the prices it charges for mobile search ads, the firm stated, adding that the company's innovation in mobile has been strong. Stifel has a $250 price target and Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Baidu rose 4% to $224. Other Chinese Internet names also rose, with Weibo (WB) adding 1% to $18, Renren (RENN) rising 1% to $3.45, Sohu.com (SOHU) gaining 1.5% to $44, and Qihoo 360 (QIHU) adding 0.5% to $68.50.
