While the company's quarterly and annual stats look good, Trulia is dealing with classic Web 2.0 problem. It is still incurring losses. Its 4th quarter net loss stood at 6 cents per share. However, on the positive side, the losses are narrowing down. Its loss for the previous year quarter stood at 30 cents per share.

Trulia is banking on mobile internet to boost its business and to become profitable. The company website had 120 percent higher mobile internet traffic in the fourth quarter. Trulia is planning to focus on mobile access and expects to draw a majority of its traffic from this. While the company still operates at a loss, it also increased its average revenue per advertiser during the fourth quarter. Trulia also has good growth potential compared to its biggest competitor Zillow. However, investors should remain cautious as the sector is still in the infancy stage.

Qihoo 360 Making the Right Moves

Qihoo 360 Technology deals in security solutions and offers 360 branded browsers. The stock made a strong debut but currently is languishing. However, the future looks bright for the company and the stock looks like an attractive option at its current valuations. It has been marred by anti-trust concerns and had rocky interaction with Apple which finally saw it being kicked off the App Store.

Qihoo 360 Technology recently inked an unlikely deal with Sohu, as the company previously had public spats with Sohu. However, the deal will help Qihoo 360 Technology in posing a bigger challenge to Baidu.

The company is set to announce its fourth quarter earnings on February 22nd. It is expected to report its revenue at $93.5 million while its EPS is likely to be at 17 cents per share. The company's stock is likely to react positively to earnings announcement. It maintains leadership position in growing Chinese internet space. However, it is also subject to strict Chinese internet regulations, putting a slight dampener on its growth prospects.

Qihoo 360 stock is up 10 percent so far this year. The stock also has good prospects as the company has been expanding into the smartphone market. The company recently collaborated with Haier for this purpose.
