Jefferies reiterates a 'Buy' on Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU) price target of $150.00.

Analyst, Cynthia Meng, said, "2Q12 revenue came in at the top-end of guidance as strong SME growth and new verticals helped counter macro headwinds with weak ads operating environment. Earnings also beat both Street and our estimates. As expected, contextual ads was very strong, and we reiterate our view that Baidu Union will continue to drive growth in 2H12."

FY12 EPS estimate lowered from $4.89 to $4.70 and FY13 from $6.92 to $6.82.
