Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.

What: Shares of Chinese Internet player Qihoo 360 (NYSE: QIHU) popped as much as 18% today after the company reported second-quarter results with a strong third-quarter outlook.

So what: Second-quarter revenue more than doubled to $72.8 million, and adjusted non-GAAP net income also posted a healthy jump to $20.6 million, or $0.17 per share. In the coming quarter, Qihoo 360 forecasts sales between $81 million and $82 million, which would be an increase of between 71% and 73% over last year, and is also higher than the Street forecast of $80.3 million.

Now what: On top of that, Qihoo 360 just launched its own search engine in a bid to challenge dominant Chinese search engine Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU), which has been under pressure the past couple days on the news. Qihoo 360's popular Internet browser now also defaults to its own search engine, displacing Google (Nasdaq: GOOG), which had previously occupied that seat. The company has 272 million monthly active users of its browsers -- ThinkEquity analyst Henry Guo thinks its search opportunities are "significant" in the coming years.
