stock tip (because you should always trust them from some dude online) . . . Baidu is an internet company that i jumped on quite a while ago when they were under $100/share. they jumped up into the $420s recently. i sold on the way up a few months ago. but they've taken a beating over the past week. BIDU is now back under $300 at $293. steal of a price. i think this is a nice way to diversify given that this is a company that competes with Google in China and this is the Chinese company in that battle. they will release earnings in mid February . . . a nice report will send this stock way up. AND, since they are Chinese the fluctuations in our market won't be as likely to affect their price (so if we his a recession, BIDU won't).<br><br>
