Buy
Baidu initiated with a Buy at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Han Joon Kim started Baidu with a Buy rating and $319 price target. The firm at the end of last year rated the shares a Hold. The analyst says that while Baidu may not be the fastest growing internet company in China, it is one of the "strongest R&D players in the market." He expects more focused execution on the core business and thinks the stock will "break out" over time.

Sector Weight
Baidu initiated with a Sector Weight at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Hans Chung started Baidu with a Sector Weight rating saying that despite improvement, challenges still exist. The company's early success in news feed is not enough to turnaround its "inferior position" in mobile internet and gain incremental share in the digital ad market in the near to medium term, Chung tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst assigns zero value to Baidu's artificial intelligence business since it is too early for monetization.
