On CAPS, 95% of the 1,089 members who have rated Sohu believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Boredkid and All-Star jamespeer, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community.

Just a couple of months ago, Boredkid singled out Sohu as an inexpensive way to get some growth: "Very cheap valuation, given that this is a fast growing Chinese Internet company, something which deserves a premium. No debt, decent cash, and good insider ownership also help."

In a pitch from just last month, jamespeer also advised Fools to search no further:

I can't help but analyze the financials in details, [Sohu's] financials are squeaky clean. Extraordinary revenue and EPS growth over the last 3 years combined with solid future projected revenue and earnings growth. They are consistently profitable, with phenomenal margins, almost $600M free cash, zero debt, and on top of that take a look at their cash flow management, exemplary to say the very least. This company has a long way to go.
