Baidu (BIDU +3.5%) is rallying after JPMorgan argues an improving Chinese economy and rising mobile revenue (aided by Baidu's iOS search deal) will give the company a lift. The firm thinks mobile, clearly a major concern for the Street, could make up 10% of sales by year's end. Youku Tudou (YOKU +3.5%), which JPMorgan also sees benefiting from the aforementioned trends, is also up. Alibaba's analytics arm recently estimated Qihoo (QIHU) took more search share from Baidu in December, but at a slower pace.
