Should Investors Still Believe in Baidu?

Unfortunately, Hurricane  Sandy closed the market for two days. As we returned to action today, Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU  )   dropped by 6%. However, Baidu isn't sitting idly by. The company has invested heavily into other initiatives designed toward broadening and more effectively monetizing its user base, such as  mobile browser, cloud services, and more. The company is at 27x its earnings but, on the other hand, it is still growing 50% each quarter.
