Baidu (BIDU -5.5%) slumps after Barclays lowers its PT to $153 from $189. Like others, the firm is worried about the impact of Qihoo's (QIHU +2%) new search engine, and predicts the engine will impact Baidu's 2013 Chinese search traffic and revenue shares by 6% and 2%, respectively. Nonetheless, Barclays, which has struck a bullish tone on Baidu since launching coverage last October, thinks the company will remain the dominant player in Chinese search.
