Best Insurance Stocks To Buy Right Now: Baidu Inc.(BIDU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Keith Noonan]

    iQiyi stock continued its rapid post-IPO climb at the start of June thanks to the announcement of new content deals. The company, which was spun off from Chinese search-engine giant Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), has since retreated from the highs reached last month but is still up roughly 60% from its market debut.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) was downgraded by research analysts at Credit Suisse Group from an “outperform” rating to a “neutral” rating in a research note issued on Friday.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Vena: Right. iQiyi, when they started developing this original content, keep in mind that they were still owned by Baidu(NASDAQ:BIDU), which spun them off earlier this year. Now, Baidu has a lot of similarities to Google. They are the major search engine in China. They have a lot of data. They’ve been at the forefront of artificial intelligence. So, one of the things that iQiyi said in their IPO filing with the SEC is that they view that data and their ability to analyze that data using artificial intelligence as one of their competitive advantages. So, they have used that to generate shows that Chinese consumers just really love.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Danny Vena: Absolutely. iQiyi, which was a spin-off from the Chinese Google, Baidu(NASDAQ:BIDU), they started off strictly following the Hulu model. They began as a company that used strictly advertising to generate their revenue, get as many subscribers in the door as they could, but these people were not paying anything. And it was fairly successful. But about 2015 or so, Baidu recognized just how successful Netflix was becoming, and as it has been the case with so many Chinese companies, they saw a model that they liked, and they copied it. So, they generated some new exclusive content, they stuck it behind a paywall, they encouraged users to sign up and pay, in their case, about $3 a month, and they’ve gone from there.
