- [By Roberto Pedone]
NetEase (NTES), through its subsidiaries, operates in online games, Internet portal and e-mail and wireless value-added services businesses in the People's Republic of China. This stock closed up 1.5% at $85 in Wednesday's trading session.
Wednesday's Volume: 806,000
Three-Month Average Volume: 356,752
Volume % Change: 122%
From a technical perspective, NTES trended modestly higher here right above some near-term support at $81.42 with above-average volume. This stock has been downtrending over the last month and change, with shares moving lower from its high of $90.77 to its recent low of $81.42. During that downtrend, shares of NTES have making mostly lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of NTES have now started to rebound off that $81.42 low and it's quickly moving within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if NTES manages to take out its 50-day moving average of $86.28 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NTES as long as it's trending above Wednesday's intraday low of $82.65 or above more near-term support at $81.42 and then once it sustains a move or close above its 50-day at $86.28 with volume that hits near or above 356,752 shares. If that breakout kicks off soon, then NTES will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $90.08 to $90.77, or even its 52-week high at $91.06. Any high-volume move above its 52-week high at $91.06 will then give NTES a chance to make a run at $95 to $100.

Andy Wong/AP Alibaba (BABA) is the new belle of the dot-com ball in China. The e-commerce juggernaut pulled off a record initial public offering in September when it raised $25 billion on the way to becoming a public company. Analysts love Alibaba. They were able to initiate coverage on Wednesday, following the 40-day quiet period that follows an IPO's debut. Only one of its underwriters -- Goldman Sachs -- failed to tap it as a buy recommendation. It's easy to see the appeal. Alibaba helped 231 million active buyers place 11.3 billion orders totaling $248 billion in transactions last year, and it's just getting started. However, the stock, with its nearly $250 billion market cap, isn't cheap. Let's look at some Chinese dot-coms that have been trading longer and could be more compelling bargains. Baidu (BIDU) China's leading search engine posted another blowout quarter on Wednesday, just as analysts were gushing all over Alibaba. The company behind China's largest search engine saw revenue soar 52 percent over the prior year's third quarter. Earnings climbed just 27 percent, but that was twice as fast as analysts were expecting. Baidu is investing in low-margin online specialties including travel, video and mobile app storefronts, and that weighs on bottom-line growth. Baidu remains one of China's biggest winners. It went public nine years ago at a split-adjusted price of $2.70, and now it trades north of $200. Baidu fulfills roughly two-thirds of all queries, and it is rocking at a time when its profitability is still suppressed. 51job (JOBS) Matching employees to potential hires started out with old-school tech for 51job. It got its start by inserting weekly job listings in more than two dozen leading Chinese newspapers. Then the Internet came along, allowing 51job to convert its thick Rolodex and respected brand into a leading online recruiter. It's working: 51job is growing its revenue in the low double digits. It's trading at a reasonable 22 time
