A recent report from Bloomberg notes that Chinese internet stocks have been on the upswing since Google said the Chinese government is blocking its Gmail e-mail service. Mike Hickey, an equity analyst at Janco Partners, told Bloomberg the government's "continued intervention with internet competition is certainly a positive catalyst for domestic Internet players."

China's largest social network, Renren, had a successful IPO last week, with its share price surging as much as 71 percent on its opening day. According to its prospectus, Renren has 131 million activated users who have gone through a multi-step registration process which involves submitting personal information, and replying to a verification e-mail. The company had to modify this statement, however, explaining that it has only 31 million "active" users (those who use the service at least once a month). Shares of RENN subsequently lost a large percentage of those first day gains.

Dangdang -- often considered the "Amazon of China" -- recently said it aims to drive growth by expanding its product range to include products like cosmetics, furniture and shoes, aside from media items like books and DVDs.
