Buy Baidu for Chinese growth, Buy Google for sure-fire, international, long-term profits

One of the best buys in tech today is Baidu (BIDU 1.95%), and that's for good reason. Baidu does have a lot going for it: The company trades at a lower valuation than Google (GOOGL -1.00%), yet commands a greater percentage of its domestic search market. And given the growth trends in China and the government's favoritism for domestic companies, Baidu seems like a sure-fire investment ready to pop. 

However, should investors divest from Google to fund this new investment?

Not so fast. In the video below, Fool contributor Kevin Chen explains why -- even though Google may not be a great play on Chinese growth -- it is still an excellent way to profit over the long term.
