Baidu Algorithmic Stock Forecast

Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU) is a Chinese web services company well known throughout China: so much so, in fact, that it is commonly regarded as significantly more popular than Google China.

  Silver_forecast_4.9drop   Cliffs Natural Resources has the additional misfortune of being saddled with years of poor management, an inefficient coal division, increased costs of producing iron ore, increased operating expenses, mounting debt, activist investors, lawsuits, and a particularly harsh U.S. winter. I Know First's algorithm indicates that Cliffs has much room to rebound, and it ranks Cliffs as one of its top investments for both the medium and long-term time horizons.
