Better Buy: Yahoo! vs. Baidu
The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss emerging trends in technology.
In today's edition, Jeremy and Eric pit Baidu against Yahoo! to decide which one of these Internet giants is the better buy. While Eric and Jeremy find that Yahoo!'s foreign assets are an extremely attractive reason to buy the company, Baidu has benefits of its own, such as an increasing monopoly-like market share in Chinese search.
Both Yahoo! and Baidu are part of a boom that will lead to Internet traffic quadrupling by 2015.
