    Baidu's strong Q2 bodes well for Qihoo earnings

    China Watcher / Shanghai
    China
    Search engine market leader Baidu showed good progress in the search business with the release of its Q2 earnings, and investors should be expecting its rival Qihoo to follow suit. Investors were concerned with Baidu's spending plans for the O2O industry, but Qihoo doesn't plan a similar entry. In addition, the upcoming earnings release will give clarity on the ongoing privatisation bid, with management set to buy the firm for $77 per share.

    US pending home sales miss in June, decline 1.8%:

    Analysts had penciled in a modest increase of 0.9%, but instead pending sales of existing homes fell 1.8% m/m in June while May was revised a bit lower to 0.6%. Despite the monthly decline the annual change in pending home sales rose to 11.1% last month from a revised 7.9% in May.

    Pending home sales lead existing home sales by 1 to 2 months.

    Homebuilders (XHB) have outperformed the S&P 500 index so far this year.
