I look at the markets based on my signature Invest Diva Diamond Analysis (IDDA) and combine it with the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo strategy development technique including indications from the Ichimoku cloud. The IDDA looks at investment strategies from 5 points: technicals, fundamentals, sentiment, capital, and overall.
About Baidu Stock (Bidu)
Baidu is the largest Internet search engine in China with over 70% of mobile traffic share in the search market.
The Chinses firm generates 86% of revenue from online marketing services and the rest from other segments. What gets me most excited about Baidu is that it’s a technology-driven company and has been investing in AI technology. It even invests heavily autonomously driven cars which are among the hottest of the future tech.
In the near term, Baidu will invest heavily in its mobile business in terms of sales and marketing, and traffic acquisition. While meaningful monetization is uncertain, analysts expect Baidu to increase or maintain its research and development expenditure, which is at 17% of sales in the first quarter of 2019.
Baidu Stock Fundamentals
Here are some of the bullish and bearish justifications for the Baidu stock.
On the positive note, Baidu sits on a cash pile of over CNY 100 billion. This gives the Chinese firm enormous powder to invest in technology, particularly in AI.
It can even use its loads of cash merger and acquisition opportunities to grow even bigger.
On one negative note, Baidu has many competitors in the field. Alibaba, Tencent, and other vertical Internet service providers are competing in terms of advertising budgets.
The fierce competition could result in slow growth in revenue for Baidu.
Baidu Stock Ichimoku Analysis
The Baidu stock price broke above the daily Ichimoku cloud end of October 2019. Ichimoku Kinko Hyo strategy suggests we could see a temporary pullback towards the upper band of the cloud before further gains in the medium term. However, the pair has not yet completed the long-term double top bearish reversal chart pattern which suggests the Baidu stock price could drop to as low as $42.
On the other hand, we also have a Saucer Bottom chart pattern forming on the daily chart.
