Google Inc Research Report

Google, after reaching a record high $838.60, has further widened its
price-to-earnings ratio gap with rival Apple at 25 times profit compared to
the iPhone maker's price-to-earnings ratio of less than 10. It is the widest
gap since June 2005, two years before their mobile device wars started to
intensify. A report from Bloomberg suggests that more investors are willing to
pay more for each dollar of Google's earnings relative to Apple because of its
massive growth potential on advertising, with $37.3 billion in potential
earnings from prospective advertisers. Its alliance with Korean mobile giant
Samsung also continues to put pressure on Apple. Earlier this year, Google
posted a whopping 36 percent year over year growth in revenue and saw its
earnings per share rise to $8.62 from $8.22 year over year, credited with its
new ad products. The Full Research Report on Google Inc - including full

Yahoo! Inc. Research Report

Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer recently abolished the company's
work-at-home policy last month and required all employees to work in the
office, among the many changes the former Google executive brought to the
company. The memo says the decision was made to "foster a more collaborative"
culture, and is also another Google adoption like the free food and smartphone
benefits Mayer also introduced. Mayer told the New York Times that it was an
effort to boost morale to employees she claims are becoming "aimless," as well
as remove a bloated bureaucracy which has kept Yahoo from competing as of
late. The company is trying to bounce back after missing out on the two
biggest Internet trends, social networking and mobile, which led to a freefall
in its stock price, among other struggles. The Full Research Report on Yahoo!

SINA Corp Research Report

SINA reported reported Q4 2012 earnings of 13 cents per share, down from 21
cents per share reported in the year-ago quarter but when adjusted would be at
5 cents per share. Revenue meanwhile jumped 4.4 percent year over year to
$134.4 million for the quarter and was in line with management's guided range
of $132 million to $136 million. In comparison, analysts estimated adjusted
earnings of a loss of 2 cents per share and revenue of $143 million. The
growth was attributed to higher advertising revenue in the quarter, up 6.7%
year over year to $110.7 million, and was slightly ahead of the low end of
management's guided range of $110 million to $112 million. For the current
quarter, SINA expects revenue to be between $115 million and $119 million. The

Yandex N.V. Research Report

Russian search provider Yandex posted net income of $89 million in Q4 2012
compared with 2.12 billion rubles a year earlier, but missed the $96 million
analysts expected. In addition, Yandex forecast revenue growth may slow to 28
percent to 32 percent this year from 44 percent in 2012, due to its
expectation for online text-based advertising in Russia. Management claims
that the market has "matured," and it's "impossible" to grow at 60 or 44
percent a year these days. To compare, the 2013 sales guidance is below
analyst expectations of 33 percent growth. Yandex has been defending its
Russian market share against Google Inc. and is trying to expand in foreign
markets such as Turkey. Last year, the company introduced a browser to
challenge Google's Chrome and got its maps added to Apple Inc.'s operating
system for Russia. The Full Research Report on Yandex N.V. - including full
