Down roughly 20%, shares of Chinese search giant Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) have taken a beating over the last year.

However, the market's clearly concerned about more than just valuation here. In this edition of our Ask a Fool series, Fool contributor Andrew Tonner checks in on Baidu and explains why, despite its recent struggles, the company could be a winner yet.
