Not that it really MATTERS in the grand scheme of things, but it's true, Cramer finally capitulated and said to "buy" shares of Baidu.com, China's own "Black Swan" story. Good for yo Jimmy Bugeyes!
After BIDU traded down into the $40's less than a year after its historic IPO, I began watching it for signs of organic growth, and when I decided that BIDU COULD really become China's Google, I encouraged my former gf to purchase a measly 50 shares of BIDU back in 2006 at ~$63, and she did not sell a single share until this past fall when I encouraged her to raise some cash to purchase a couple hundred shares of FB; FB looked like the next stock rocket to both of us, and 30 points later she recently sent me a bottle of Johnny Blue as a thank you gift. She sold those post-split 100 BIDU shares @ ~$138 and despite her windfall of a 75% gain in her new FB position, she'd be farther ahead on paper if she had told me to go to hell and simply held the entirety of her BIDU position. I'm attempting to illustrate that there are some stocks that you should just buy and HOLD; BIDU is such a stock, I owned 500 shares below $50 but sold out above $70 after that now famous ER/CC that sent it off to the races. I wish I'd have never ever sold because I'd be the proud owner of 5000 shares of BIDU @ $182... live and learn right?
Not too late at all to own BIDU FB GOOG VIPS QIHU YY FEYE PANW DDD SSYS XONE TWTR TSLA SCTY. , etc for year to come..
