    Close to $30drop

    I can't say for certain; but I can only make a few educated guesses. My guess is that the market clearly did not like the fact that they will have flat earnings growth and that started the sell off. Then, the Chinese came out with softer than expected economic data(which brought most chinese stocks down); which may mean less spending on advertising. Finally, the market has been moving away from risky investments. It started with Russia and the realization that #$%$ happens over seas that could adversely impact investments. Just look and YNDX. Finally, BIDU will be buying companies this year; but the market really does not know which companies....this brings some uncertainty into the equation and the market does not like uncertainty. BUT, I am not concerned. Robin Li knows exactly what he is doing and he is building an Empire and I love companies that have alot of Cash and can control their spending to dictate whatever EPS they desire. I hope he continues re-invest and continue to grow the EMPIRE. I think if you are patient; you will be unquestionably rewarded. Be patient and buy on dips.

    Why fight over Bidu and Qihu

    Because I don't think I can trust QIHU. I could be wrong; but their CEO seems a little too aggressive. I also don't like the fact that QIHU market share keeps growing; but the revenue from search/advertising has not seemed to follow. I think they are making their money on security and their browser. Not sure; but it seems a little fishy to me...... I would say BUY BIDU and you can sleep well. Robin Li seems to be humble, intelligent and aggressive in a very clever way. I think he has made mistakes, but overall; I think he is done an excellent job transitioning BIDU in a Mobile, Cloud Computing, Video, Travel, Books, etc...Powerhouse. He is building an Empire or a Dynasty......:)

    It was never at $140 five years ago, unless you purchased it 'pre-split'.....which you have done quite well for yourself in the last 4-5 years -POST 10 for 1 Split. I bought it at $70 pre-split and still holding. I think we will see $1,000 again in about 4-5 years. Probably $230-$240 before the end of this year; and much more next year. I think either '15 or '16 will be a year of another bananza! HUGE Returns and Huge Runs! Be patient. This is a big, big winner!!

    Sleep well! This is one of the best companies in the world. Well managed and has a HUGE HUGE future opportunities. Should be a $1,000 stock in 5 years. Hang-on and get rich!! I have held since $7 cost basis after 10 for 1 split. This is a BIG winner.

    Don't compare BIDU with GOOGLE....

    I don't know where or why you would compare this to Amazon; other than the Cloud Computing Aspect of BIDU. I think it is much more like GOOG and Netflix. They are definitely beginning to get closer to the consumer gearing up(Investing) with applications, games, travel, books and of course Video. BUT, all of that will take time and they have yet to truly make money on any of these investments- Other than QUNR and when they take iQiyi public - BUT, they need to begin making money and that could take until the beginning of '15. I believe search is still the heavy lifter of course, and I think when they introduce Xinshin - more advance MGMT system; they will grab more market share. I don't like the way it is trading now; maybe the market is anticipating a soft 4th Qtr? Maybe QIHU is stealing market share? Either way, I think BIDU will be just fine; it just could get hairy here in the short term.

    Way way oversold

    It depends on how you look at it. If they take iQiyi public; it certainly would make them a lot of money. If you ever listened to interviews with Robin Li - they are not depending their growth on acquisitions....they would prefer to develop own products and grow organically; the acquistions were simply to enhance long term strategy of determining best ways to monetize search. Big Benny my cost basis is $7. I really don't care if this goes to $100 or $300 short term; I am looking for 1K Dollars a share. BIDU is well positioned in the Chinese Internet Ecosystem - The key will be to figure out how to best capitalize and that is what they are trying to do .

    Who really cares? I have been in this for 5 years - it goes up and down like a YO YO; but the only guarantee is that in the long run it goes up! I hope to buy more at $140. QIHU is breaking out. I think they are supported by GOOG; but it really does not matter. BIDU is 10 X the technology and a much better managed company. Wait for the earnings; they will look very, very solid. The best growth is yet to come when Video, Mobile and Cloud Computing all kick-in at the same time. Probably about 2-3 quarters a way; but it still will be good until then. They are introducing their new Search Management System - Xinshin - It will lock down search both on the Mobile and on PC's. It will be a game changer.

    Yes, I have owned this since $7. This makes big moves either direction. I think the apprehension over 'auditing' Chinese companies, competition, Chinese Economy - these are all dragging BIDU lower. I am looking to buy more - I am hoping for $140. Don't know if that will actually happen. This thing is a Monster - the earnings will be good; but I think their are just too many negatives - nothing to do with BIDU - to make a near term strong comeback. I am looking for 1K dollars a share in 3-4 years. Once Mobile, Video, and Cloud Computing really start ringing the cash register; this thing will move in a big way - once again.

    Stoomeister. I am in at 2K shares at $3 about 4-5 years ago; and just bought more. Good luck with your short position!

    I purchased KNDI back at 5 and regret selling it! I think they are gaining market share and it is a great way to play clean energy solutions. Nothing beats BIDU - Don't listen to the naysayers. BIDU is very undervalued and will see some HUGE gains in the not very distant future - be patient.
