The Chinese Internet space continues to trade well, in fact our EMCHI Index has touched fresh 52 week highs as index heavyweight Baidu (22% of index) has seen a technical breakout from the lows of Feb 5th.

Baidu reports in 10 days but investors are already looking at the relative value in owning Baidu at 34x current and 27X estimate 2014 EPS versus more expensive peers like Tencent. 

At current growth levels investors should now be asking do I want to own Googles (GOOG, quote) 20-23% growth at a current multiple of 33x of Baidu 45% growth at a similar current multiple.
