10:46 EDTSOHU, CYOU, QIHU, SINA, YOKU, BIDUChinese Internet stocks fall after Sohu denies rumor, Qihoo reports results
Several Chinese Internet stocks are retreating after a company in the sector, Sohu.com (SOHU), denied rumors that it's in talks with private equity firms about going private, which the company attributed to a report in the South China Morning Post. Sohu also denied that it has held talks about delisting its stock. In mid-morning trading, Sohu tumbled 9% to $44.50 while online game maker Changyou.com (CYOU), a Sohu subsidiary, slid 7% to $30. Meanwhile, Qihoo 360 (QIHU), which operates a search engine and sells Internet ads like Sohu, is sinking over 6% in mid-morning trading, despite reporting higher than expected fourth quarter earnings per share and providing higher than expected first quarter revenue guidance. Research firm Jefferies, however, downgraded Qihoo to Hold from Buy, citing the stock's valuation and the company's slowing profit growth. In mid-morning trading, microblog operator SINA (SINA) dropped 4% to $48, Internet video company Youku Tudou (YOKU) retreated 5.5% to $18 and Baidu (BIDU), which operates a Chinese language Internet search engine, fell 0.4% to $91.

11:26 EDTBIDU, QIHUQihoo 360 falls despite better-than-forecast Q2 results, Q3 revenue guidance
Shares of Chinese internet and software company Qihoo 360 Technology (QIHU) are falling despite reporting second quarter results that beat analysts' estimates. The company also provided third quarter revenue guidance that exceeded estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Qihoo 360 reported Q2 adjusted earnings per share of 50c on revenue of $317.9M, which surpassed analysts' consensus estimates of 46c and $309.38M, respectively. For the quarter, operating income was $43.9M compared to $36.6M a year ago and $39.6M in the first quarter. Non-GAAP operating margin was 21.9% in Q2, compared to 36% in the year-ago period and 14.9% in Q1. The company said the sequential decline in non-GAAP operating margin was primairly due to increased marketing and promotional expenses, personnel-related costs and bandwidth and equipment depreciation expenses. Looking ahead, Qihoo 360 forecast Q3 revenue of $360M-$365M, which is slightly higher than analysts' consensus estimates of $357.39M. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Hongyi Zhou commented that the company is in an "excellent position" to grow its share of China's search market in both PC and mobile traffic and revenue. The company plans to make "significant" investments in the coming quarters to strengthen its brand and market position, and to improve our products and technology, particularly in mobile Internet-related areas. The executive noted that the company's share of Internet search traffic recently reached over 30%, citing third-party data, achieving a company target fourth months ahead of schedule. ANALYST OPINION: Jefferies defended Qihoo 360 shares following the company's Q2 results. Stifel analyst George Askew feels that Qihoo 360's Q2 revenue and operating margin results were "very good" and believes that many factors, including its 30% search query share, will help it sustain its search revenue growth. The firm maintains $168 price target and Buy rating. Bank of America analyst Eddie Leung said that he expects Qihoo 360's margins to get better gradually in the second half of the year since the company is looking to control expenses and realize synergies. He anticipates search to increase at a fast rate to make up 36% of total sales in FY16. Leung believes this should particularly offset the decline in game revenues this past quarter. Leung lowered his price target on Qihoo 360 to $121 from $123. PRICE ACTION: During late-morning trading, shares of Qihoo fell $6.62 or 6.51%, to $95.13. OTHERS TO WATCH: Chinese search market leader Baidu (BIDU) rose nearly 1.7% to $217.77.

12:51 EDTYOKUYouku Tudou technical comments ahead of results
In the prior three months the stock has been nearly flat in trading, punctuated by a few upside moves that failed to hold. A key level for the stock on the downside is at the $19 area. This has been support in the interval, and might well be tested again on a disappointment in expectations. If the $19 area breaks, the 52-week low at $17.77 would be the next likely downside objective. On a positive surprise, the $24 area is key. This has been the range high in the last three months. A move that is not strong enough to break above this level would keep the shares range bound. A breakout above, especially when viewed on a longer-term chart, would turn the longer-term trend back to bullish from neutral. Shares have been consolidating in price, basing, for the past several months. Resistance above $24 would be at $25.02. There is a large short-base in the name at 8.6% of the float short. That could add to buy-to-cover demand on a positive surprise.
