The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior analyst Matt Argersinger and analyst Paul Chi discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Matt and Paul talk Baidu, the Chinese Internet search giant. The stock is sharply lower after reporting first-quarter results last month that failed to meet the market's expectations. But Matt thinks long-term-minded investors have an opportunity to buy into Baidu's impressive growth, strong competitive advantages, and vast market opportunity at a bargain price. In fact, on an earnings basis, Baidu's stock has never been this cheap. Get Matt's full take by watching the video.
