PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bull Market Report (BMR) (, an online investment newsletter focused on long-term growth and income-generating stocks, has provided subscribers with updated coverage of several Chinese Internet and telecom stocks, including Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU), Sina (Nasdaq: SINA), Sohu (Nasdaq: SOHU),China Mobile (NYSE: CHL), China Unicom (NYSE: CHU), and China Telecom (NYSE: CHA).

In its daily report, BMR wrote: "Chinese search giant Baidu faces some new competition in the form of a partnership between Alibaba Group, the China-based electronics and e-commerce company, and Microsoft. As reported earlier, the latter two teamed up to launch a beta version of a new Chinese-language search engine called Etao that is supposed to drive traffic to Alibaba's e-commerce site.

"The question for investors is to what extent this new search site poses a threat to Baidu's dominant position in the Sino-search market. Baidu, after all, has largely been able to shrug off competition from Google, which dominates Internet search in the West and has clashed with Beijing over censorship of its results. If anything, Baidu has grown its market share over the year after Google opted to move its Chinese website to servers in Hong Kong, where it can operate more freely."

BMR looked at the following topics, among others:

-- Can Baidu continue its strong momentum in the Chinese search market? What price range does BMR think the stock could reach? Which is the better investment, Baidu or Google?

-- How is Sina like the Twitter of China? What is the biggest potential growth driver for the stock?

-- Trading at about 10x its estimated 2011 earnings after netting out its nearly $16 per share in cash, is Sohu a value or a value trap?

-- Which beaten down U.S. stock could be a good backdoor play into one of China's hottest Internet companies?

-- Which Chinese mobile stock does BMR think is most attractive: the market leader China Mobile; China Unicom, the sole provider of the iPhone in China; or the smaller China Telecom.
