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.

10:52 EDTQIHU, SOHU, BIDUBaidu 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.
