Chinese internet stocks listed in the U.S. often move in accordance with investor sentiment towards China's economy. According to a recent report from Barron's "Chinese Internet stocks are prominently listed on U.S. exchanges, and are among the most widely-held Chinese stocks." Fears of a hard economic landing in China pushed shares of internet firms towards 52-week lows in the early stages of 2012. However recent measures from China's government have restored some optimism regarding the direction of China's economy.
China's economy expanded by 9.2 percent in 2011 from a year earlier and 8.9 percent year-on-year in the fourth quarter, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS). "There is not likely to be any dramatic decline in China's economy this year and a soft landing will be achieved," Pan Xiangdong, chief economist with China Galaxy Securities, said in an interview with Xinhua.
