Is It Time for You to Buy Baidu? (Hint: Yes.)

Baidu  (NASDAQ: BIDU  )  shares are down 26% year to date, against a more-than-10% rise in the S&P. So what are investors so scared of? Is it slowing Chinese growth? The rise of Qihoo 360  (NYSE: QIHU  ) ? Or perhaps the same worries over a fumbled "transition to mobile" that recently dogged Google  (NASDAQ: GOOGL  )  and Facebook  (NASDAQ: FB  ) ? 

Actually, it's all of these -- and as Fool contributor Rich Smith explains, none of them change the fact that Baidu is a dirt-cheap dream stock.

Regardless of your short-term view on the Chinese economy, there may be opportunity in Baidu (aka the "Chinese Google"). Our brand-new premium report breaks down the dominant Chinese search provider's strengths and weaknesses. Just click here to access it now.
