SOHUs low price? does it suggest a BIDU buyout is coming?
I know nothing about the corporate interaction between BIDU and SOHU. I do know that if someone buys SOHU at a 50% increase to the current market cap, this would be equivalent to around 2.2 Billion. With BIDUs brand new 1.5b warchest they would only have to pay about 700million more and given that BIDU makes 500 million in profit each quarter, this would seem very reasonable and a great buy.
SOHU trading at this valuation with 70% ownership in CYOU and now commanding around 10-15% of the search market makes no sense. This should be a $60 stock, but it's being kept low for some strange reason.
i think sohu is better than sina, sohu has sogou, video department, cyou, espcial sogou, its very popular when you try to research something! of course, you can type chinese in google researh, the sogou will come out! sogou pinying is so good. there have lots of chinese use sogou pinying.
