  • Mid-Day Trading Outlook
    on Feb 15, 2011

    on Feb 14, 2011
    From 2004 to 2007, we witness the crazy bull ride of GOOG from $100 to $700. Although I believe we will not witness the same phenomenon with BIDU, we should see BIDU rise to at least $300 if the search engine company continues its strong earnings and...
