NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Technology names were all the rage on StockTwits Monday, with tweets focusing on Apple, Amazon, Sina and Baidu.

Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) shares rose more than 1%, after touching a new low for the year last week. The bounce came amid reports that Apple will release two new versions of the iPhone in September and after a Morgan Stanley analyst issued a 'buy' recommendation on the stock.

A separate report from Morgan Stanley lifted Amazon (AMZN, Fortune 500)'s shares 3%. Morgan Stanley boosted its price target on Amazon to $245 from $225, and added the stock to its Best Ideas List.

Chinese websites were also abuzz.

Sina Corp. (SINA) shares were up 6% following a Wall Street Journal report saying the company's Sina Weibo is already China's version of Twitter, and now it wants to be a Chinese Facebook too.

China's search giant Baidu (BIDU) was also a hot topic, with shares rising almost 3%.

All of that is giving StockTwits users plenty to tweet about:

ericjackson: That $AAPL 4gs phone news is huge for China (prepaid market).

triplexx: $AAPL could this be the real McCoy for a change?

Sangluccitrades: $AMZN is strongoooo, setting up for all time highs or a big crash?
