There have been growing concerns that the recent slowdown in China, the world's second largest economy, would force companies to cut ad spending. On Sunday, the National Bureau of Statistics in Beijing stated that the China Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index fell slightly to 50.2 from 50.4. If the index were to fall below 50 it would signal contraction in the manufacturing sector.

"As Chinese industrial consumption goes down, ad spending, Internet spending is also going down," Michael Ding at U.S. Global Investors, said by phone according to Bloomberg. "The impact is being felt by Internet stocks that are very sensitive to macro numbers."
