Shares in Chinese search engine Baidu.com have tumbled after two firms involved in its stock market listing said prices had shot too high.
A lot of the excitement from Baidu's share listing has started to fade
Demand among investors for a piece of Baidu - dubbed the Chinese Google - has driven the share price to more than $81 since it listed at $27 in New York.
But as the hype eases questions are being asked about Baidu's growth rate.
Analysts from Goldman Sachs and Piper Jaffray, which helped manage its Nasdaq debut, said $45 was a fairer price.
Too far, too fast
The problem facing many companies is that despite China's potential for growth being well documented, building a very profitable business will take time and investment.
While Baidu is well placed to benefit from the increasing number of Chinese people logging on to the internet, the market may have been guilty of overestimating its potential for quickly boosting earnings.
At the same time as it announced a net profit of 12.1m yuan ($1.5m; £830,000), Baidu also warned that its pace of growth was likely to slow in coming months.
In a report on Baidu, Goldman Sachs analyst Anthony Noto said that even his "more aggressive scenarios" for earnings forecasts cannot justify the current share price.
Mr Noto puts the stock's fair value at between $27 and $45.
In a separate report, Piper Jaffray analyst Safa Rashtchy said that Baidu's current valuation was "off the chart" and put a fair market value of $45 on its shares.
Baidu declined to comment on its share price or the analyst reports, but said it was committed to "building long-term value".
