Baidu (BIDU - Get Report), often referred to as the Google (GOOG) of China, is the largest Chinese-language search engine in the world. Despite a slowing of the economy in China to a low rate of growth, Baidu is attracting more users and clients at a fast pace.
This fast-growing company is expected to increase revenues by 59% in 2012 and 42% in 2013. Earnings are expected to grow 53% in 2012 and 41% in 2013. Earnings surpassed analysts' estimates for each of the last four quarters.
The company has a virtual monopoly in China as Google has its share of operating and legal woes in that nation. The stock is trading 10% below its 52-week high, likely due to the China slowdown concerns. However, I believe that Baidu will eclipse that high of $165.96 on its way to $200.Baidu is one of SAC Capital's holdings and also shows up in George Soros' portrfolio as of the most recently reported period.
