Baidu Investors Should Love These 2 Moves

Investing in Chinese Internet stocks certainly isn't for the faint of heart. However, certain larger companies like Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU  ) or (NASDAQ: CTRP  ) might prove appealing to investors, especially after the recent sell-off that's snakebitten tech stocks in general.

A perfect example of the short-term pain investors in these high-growth companies often encounter, Baidu's shares remain down around 10% since around just a month prior, even though my confidence in the firm remains as intact as ever. On the other hand, stock has rallied nicely over the last few months, helping offset some stiff losses from earlier in the year.

Both Ctrip and Baidu are perfect examples of how quickly these kinds of Chinese Internet investments can pinball up and down. And another recent storyline between and Baidu helps to highlight one of two reasons why investors should love Baidu these days.

Baidu and linking up?
Word broke recently that and Baidu are currently in discussions to combine's core travel booking business with Baidu's majority-owned investment Qunar (NASDAQ: QUNR  ) through some kind of merger, acquisition, or investment.

The deal makes perfect sense for Baidu,, and Qunar as the companies could together become an even more powerful force to be reckoned with in the booming Chinese online booking space. And in the video below, tech and telecom explains why the Baidu/ deal and another storyline are perfect examples of why investors should still be bullish on Baidu.
