Baidu trades down $25 due to the departure of the COO from daily activities.
The company has a long history of growth without the involvement of Qi Lu.
The stock continues to trade favorably to domestic peers despite massive margins.
Despite being a dominant player in the fast-growing internet space in China, Baidu (BIDU) consistently trades at a discount to American peers. The departure of a key executive and an analyst downgrade provide another gift to own this stock on a $25 dip and at levels from back in 2014.
