Baidu, Inc. Message Board

    So the topic for discussion - Sogou.....Baidu, or Qihoo or Baidu and Tencent??

    Rumors of a Sogou buyout is circulating the media. Qihoo is vocally telling sources they put a bid for $1.4 billion US, no other bids confirmed yet but Baidu seems to have one too.

    Qihoo doesn't even have that kind of money and with a market cap of under $5 bill, not sure if a deal with mostly stock sounds enticing enough for Sogou.

    Baidu buying them certainly makes sense to squash Qihoo, but do they really need to do that to stay on top? I don't think so.

    As for a joint deal with Tencent and Baidu to do something with Sogou might also sound a bit odd, but maybe there is a master plan. Regardless I think China internet stocks are in the spotlight for at least the next 2-3 weeks. We could see BIDU break 100 next week.

    Bruiser, what do you think? I know the overall overbought market makes you leery but I think Baidu has more to announce sooner than later.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • What is the SOHU stock price if/when Sogou is sold thx. I searched everywhere and no one talks about this. With SINA, they came up wit the value of Weibo alone is about at SINA current price.

    • Qihoo always spread a lot of vocal lies from where they can get 1.4 billion may be from their Az

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      I will agree with your message concerning BIDU and IF this happens it would be good news for now & future but there are MANY other Quality Stocks that have not had the run up in price that BIDU has this week that I would prefer to buy at this time. I sold ALL of my BIDU as You already know at least 3-5 dollars a share too soon...MY BAD...However back to my message about market correction when was the last time it dropped 10 % ? Do You even remember ? There are way too many things going on in the World in my opinion that could take the whole market down in a week or less: North Korea ? , Home Grown Terror Plots ? , Europe is still treading water , China is just starting to recover but who knows what will happen if North Korea does something stupid ? I am not trying to beat up on BIDU as You know I was one of its biggest pumpers and I think a drop is coming. Think about this how much is a dollar REALLY worth anymore ? They keep printing it like it is Monopoly $ and I don't trust our Government one bit. They are IDIOTS and should ALL be fired !

    • The rumor drives the price. Baidu will soar if they win!
