Chinese Internet Stocks Receive Boost as China Cuts Rates -- Apple to add Baidu Search Engine on iPhones in China

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 06/11/12 -- Chinese internet stocks have struggled recently amidst concerns of China's slowing economy. But a recent rate cut by China's central bank, the first in over 4 years, signaled that the Chinese government was willing to take strong measures to help boost its economy. As a result many China-based stocks received a boost early Thursday. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in China's Internet Industry and provides equity research on Baidu.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIDU) and E Commerce China Dangdang Inc. (NYSE: DANG).

China's central bank, the People's Bank of China, cut benchmark interest rates by 25 basis points. One-year borrowing rates fell to 6.31 percent and deposit rates dropped to 3.25 percent.

"As the first rate cut since Dec. 2008, the surprise move sends a strong signal that the government will be more active in supporting demand and stabilizing growth," wrote Shuang Ding, Minggao Shen, and Serena Wang, Hong Kong analysts at Citi Investment Research & Analysis, in a recent note. "We see this as a shift of monetary policy tone that would help lower borrowing costs and improve confidence, increasing the chance for the economy to bottom in Q2 and rebound in Q3."
