NEW YORK,  March 8, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Today, Investors Alliance announced new research reports highlighting Google Inc
(NASDAQ:GOOG), Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO), Baidu.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU), SINA
Corp (NASDAQ:SINA) and Yandex N.V. (NASDAQ:YNDX). Today's readers may access
these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis
and analyst ratings - via the links below.

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! Inc. - including full

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 detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and
price targets - is available to download free of charge at:
