Sohu (NASDAQ: SOHU ) lags behind Baidu in search, Youku Tudou in video, and Tencent and SINA as an online portal, so how has this company returned 30% year-to-date?

In 2012, CEO Charles Zhang took an extended sabbatical for personal reasons. And those personal reasons led to Sohu's lackluster year. Now that Zhang is back at the helm, he seems reinvigorated and recognizes the challenges before him. Lucky for him, he's built out Sohu's war chest.
Just how good are Sohu's chances of coming back? Watch the video below to find out.
