A look at what may lie ahead.

In this video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner takes a look at the market-share numbers that just came out for China's search industry and talks about what they mean for the biggest fish in the pond, Baidu. While Baidu did see a marginal decrease in market share from 75% to 73%, this is still such a massive lead over the competition at the moment that Andrew thinks this is still a great time to be a Baidu investor. If we continue to see this kind of market-share erosion over the long term, however, then it might be time to reconsider.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
