BIDU's earnings are due on 10/25/2007. Its vols are dropping since it moved up 10% today. Still we are looking 84 vols on November expiration. Its a deadly Chinese dragon hissing fire and moving like a wild serpent side to side. But this Earnings Rodeo, I rode all the bulls like GOOG, AAPL, RIMM, YHOO, AMZN etc etc. I won all the rides and won a small jackpot. So whats a $ 349 Chinese commie dragon doing in our yard? I would like people to put forth ideas how this dragon can be tamed and if you have specific trades and know how to tame dragons with a mighty whip ? I have one such mighty weapon in my arsenal, a howitzer of sorts that shoots artillery fire and subdues mighty stocks like Google, Apple, RIMM and others . TECHNICAL BACKGROUND. BIDU just broke out from a triangular bullish consolidation pattern on heavy volumes. I was worried it could easily drop down as well, since the pattern looked somewhat bearish in nature. With this new breakout on heavy volume we can see some higher highs in coming weeks. The earnings reports may stoke some more fuel. I think the stock has lots more to go.
