Brean Capital cut its price target on Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU) from $125 to $120 following Q4 results and outlook but is maintaining a Buy rating.

The firm comments, "With mobile traffic growth continuing to outpace PC traffic, China Internet is going through a transformational period. Along with the industry, BIDU is going through the growing pains. We expect the company to face increasing margin pressure in the near term as a result of mobile investment, higher costs to fend off competition as well as iQiyi dilution. We remain positive on BIDU's overall long-term growth potential, but trim our 2013 estimates. As such, we lowered our price target to $120."

The firm trimmed FY13 EPS estimates from $5.77 to $5.51.
