    Chinese Internet stocks finished AH trading with solid gains thanks to Baidu's big Q2 beat and above-consensus Q3 guidance.  Baidu mentioned in its report revenue/ad customer rose 11% Q/Q, and that mobile now accounts for over 10% of its sales. SINA +4.1%. SOHU +2.2%. RENN +4.3%. YOKU +3.6%. YY +3.1%. Rival QIHU +3.3%.

    Sohu (SOHU +0.9%) responds to comments from a Qihoo (QIHU +1.6%) exec about M&A talks regarding Sohu's Sogou search unit by stating it "has been, and continues to be, in preliminary discussions with several potential strategic investors and partners." Sohu adds its Sogou options include both the sale of a minority stake, and "a more comprehensive strategic combination." Qihoo has issued a PR in which it says "no agreement has been reached with respect to a significant transaction," but provides little color beyond that.

    Qihu (QIHU -1.1%) says it's in talks to buy Sohu's (SOHU +0.4%) Sogou search unit, but cautions it's "not in the pricing stage yet" and is still weighing integration issues. Analysts estimate the business is worth $1.2B-$1.4B. Sogou, rumored to be drawing interest from a few different companies, was recently estimated to have an 8.8% share of the Chinese search market in June; Qihoo was given a 15.3% share. If integration challenges can be handled well, a Qihoo/Sogou merger would yield a company with more resources, user data, and advertising scale to take on Baidu (BIDU -0.3%, 69.4% share). Sohu has forecast Sogou revenue of $48M-$50M for Q2, +41%-44% Y/Y.

    Google (GOOG +0.6%) had just 2.1% of the Chinese search market in June, down from 4.7% last October, per research firm CNZZ. Though Google's Chinese share has been falling for some time thanks to its decision to shut down Google.cn and redirect visitors to its Hong Kong site rather than censor results, Qihoo's (QIHU +3.4%) decision to make its own search engine the default engine for its browser, and thereby swap out Google, has sped up the trend. Qihoo is now estimated to have a 15.3% share (was 9.6% in Oct.), and Sohu's (SOHU +1.3%) Sogou 8.8% (7.8% prior). Baidu's (BIDU +1.1%) share is believed to have fallen to 69.4% from 73%.
