Better Buy: Google vs. Baidu

Tech analysts Jeremy Phillips and Eric Bleeker debate which search-engine monster makes the better buy. Jeremy picks Baidu because it's in control of the rapidly growing Chinese market, and Google stands no chance of making it into China. Eric points out that Baidu's growth rate is much larger and that the company still has room to run.

    People lie, numbers do not. With that in mind, and a 86% consistent gain seems understandable, even in this tough investing climate. Trends like that do motivate me to engage in further r & d. I'll jump in if the number's look promising, particularly their free / leveraged cash flow (a must ) and rev's & earnings vs operating costs & total debt.

    I believe that it will be a broad based rally for most stocks that practice & implement the fool's way. They must have a well managed team - which have been vetted by the foolish pro's @ the motley community.
