Your comparing a company with 15% growth to a company with well over 50% growth next year. Trailing PE will always be a distortion because BIDU's value is based on huge growth. In 2013 when BIDU is making $7/share what will be it's value? $350?
Great job posting an old segment. People on CNBC have been bashing aapl for years and it keeps going higher. Besides, same guy who's been bashing aapl has expressed some doubts about China going forward. There was no unanimous opinion on Bidu going down. So, get your facts straight.
BASHER,CNBC= a bounch of idiots, period. Who gives a rats Ahhh what their OPINIONS! are. Like the guy said they bash APPLE & now there bashing BIDU makes sense, so we know it's going higher. Since you love Apple so much why don't you and CNBC go shove a few APPLES!
If you do some digging on Apple and how their revenue reporting changed in the middle of 2011 you will see how Wall Street once again has pulled the wool over the masses eyes once again!While Apple is/has been performing extremely well the stock is NOT TRADING AT A 9 MULTIPLE WHEN STRIPPING OUT THE CASH HOWEVER IS TRADNG AT A 24 MULTIPLE without the revenue recognition change implemented last year.
Wall Street is setting up for a massive dump and Apple will lead the charge very soon.
As far as Baidu,these managed numbers cannot and will not be verified due to the Chinese wall.
