    Baidu earnings beat forecasts, eyes U.S. listing for video unit iQiyi

    SHANGHAI/BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese internet search firm Baidu Inc (BIDU.O) posted a forecast-beating quarterly revenue increase and unveiled a U.S. listing plan for its Netflix-like video platform iQiyi as it looks to rev up new drivers for growth. Baidu posted on Tuesday fourth quarter revenue of 23.6 billion yuan (2.68 billion pounds), up 29 percent against the same period a year ago and topping analysts' forecasts of 23.05 billion yuan and the company's own guidance. The strong results are a major fillip for Baidu as it looks to ramp up spending on riskier gambles in autonomous driving and fend off cashed-up rivals such as Tencent Holdings Ltd and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (BABA.N) in online video content.

    China Jan new loans surge to record 2.9 trillion yuan, blow past forecasts

    China's banks extended a record 2.9 trillion yuan (330.74 billion pounds) in new yuan loans in January, blowing past expectations and nearly five times the previous month as policymakers aim to sustain solid economic growth while reining in debt risks. While Chinese banks tend to front-load loans early in the year to get higher-quality customers and win market share, the lofty figure was even higher than the most bullish forecast by economists in a Reuters poll. Net new loans surpassed the previous record of 2.51 trillion yuan in January 2016, which is likely to support growth not only in China but may underpin liquidity globally as major Western central banks begin to withdraw stimulus.

    China's Leshi Internet said about 5.62 billion yuan (£630 million) of its debts would be due by the end of this year, or almost two-thirds of the company's total loans and liabilities, sending its shares down for a ninth day.

Earlier, the company had said that a part of its total loans and financial liabilities of 9.29 billion yuan ($1.5 billion)would be due this year, without giving any further details.

    China fines 12 banks over illegal bill trading, fraud

    China's banking regulator said on Saturday that it had fined 12 Chinese lenders after uncovering illegal trading of 7.9 billion yuan ($1.25 billion) of bank bills.

In its statement, the CBRC did not identify the issuer of the bills and did not say what was illegal about the trading.

    China's yuan finishes onshore trade at strongest since November 2015

    China's yuan rose and finished its domestic session on Wednesday at the firmest against the U.S. dollar since November 2015, underpinned by broad weakness in the greenback. A run of dollar weakness has driven gains for the yuan to about 1.9 percent this year. The dollar index, a gauge that measures the greenback's value against a basket of six major currencies, slipped below the 90 threshold for the first time since December 2014.

    One way or another: China's yuan policy tweak a warning shot in old battle

    SHANGHAI/HONG KONG (Reuters) - China's adjustment to the way it sets the reference rate for its tightly managed currency, suspending a tool for fine-tuning the exchange rate, is a fresh warning to would-be speculators that gives the yuan scope to retreat after a year of heady gains. The decision by the central bank to reduce the effect of a so-called "counter-cyclical" factor, introduced in May to limit market volatility in the yuan's calculation, initially knocked the currency lower when it was reported on Tuesday. The move makes the yuan more open to market forces, which could add downward pressure on the currency in the near-term, a help for the country's export competitiveness.

    China's banks dole out record credit in 2017 as Nov loans blow past forecasts

    Bank lending in China hit a fresh record after a much stronger-than-expected surge in credit in November, even as authorities step up efforts to reduce risks in the financial system from a rapid build-up in debt. Chinese banks extended 1.12 trillion yuan ($169.27 billion) in net new yuan loans in November, data from the People's Bank of China showed on Monday, well above analysts' expectations. Analysts polled by Reuters had predicted new yuan loans would rise to 800 billion yuan, from October's 663.2 billion yuan.
