China: Winners and Losers

KongZhong (KONG) was at the helm of the advancers' list last week, gaining 20.8%, cheered by the company's impressive fourth-quarter 2010 financial results.

Total revenue for the quarter was up 5% year over year to $36 million. Net income soared 149% to $5.01 million. For first quarter 2011, total revenue is expected between $38.5 and $39.5 million and net profit is expected in the range of $2 million to $3 million.

China's budget hotel chain Home Inns & Hotels Management (HMIN) was up 16.1%. BNP Paribas reiterated its buy rating on the stock. The hotelier is bidding for a stake in Shanghai Motel Management Co.

Zacks Investment Research reaffirmed its neutral rating on the stock. Also, Shanda Games (GAME) gained 9% after ThinkEquity upgraded the stock to buy from hold.
