And analysts are wrong to diss it.

Earlier this week, an analyst at Maxim Group took a hatchet to Chinese search giant Baidu (BIDU 1.02%), predicting the stock will fall to $75 within a year.

We should be so lucky. Cheaper than Qihoo 360 (QIHU.DL) and growing faster than Google (GOOGL 3.62%), Baidu is a bargain no matter how you slice it. In the video below, Fool contributor Rich Smith explains why.
