Facebook and Twitter gained back some of their losses from the recent "market adjustment", so I made a pre-earnings play for LinkedIn. Not quite as dramatic as Twitter, but it did join the social media group. Interesting that a few months ago, the market decided high forward P/E's were a bad thing, then they give most of the losses back the next quarter. What a game the markets play. I got stopped out of LinkedIn in real life on the down trend. Looks like I should have reupped.

While metrics remain well forward advanced, it is good to see the various areas that LinkedIn has managed to monetize their product. From advertising, to paid subscriptions, to employees seeking those to fill jobs. I like LinkedIn much better than Twitter.

For a small investor, it doesn't work as well as lower priced equities. Oh, certainly I know that if you buy $10,000 of a $10 stock an it goes up 30%, and you buy $10,000 of a $200 stock and it goes up by 30%, you're up the same $3,000.00. The problem is that it's harder to scale in and out on small lots that represent a higher dollar amount.

I know some folks really like LinkedIn and I'm getting over my dislike for high multiple forward priced equities, but it's hard to play a forward priced equity in a fickle market. 40% swings can be painful. Overall, I like LinkedIn, not sure if I can handle the ride. Hopefuly the markets become less fickle.

May regret this, but do not comprehend the valuation. I do not see a moat, it can and should be replicated and further specialized/segmented. As a buyer(profession) their plans to promote it as a sales tool pretty much ensures I will shut down my profile. I get enough weird contacts without it being designed for cold calling. I do like the site, I go there quite a bit, but it costs me nothing. That said, I have been wrong before.

US economy has been adding jobs at a steady pace for sometime now, and LinkedIn should be greatly benefiting from that. Plus the social aspect of LNKD has been putting other career websites aground and will continue to do so.

Continues to lack routes to growing revenue. Revenue streams may be approaching a maximum with US participation near likely zenith. Some people will never be paying customers, and LNKD lacks the capacity to monetize off of those that do not subscribe to their paid services. Ads needs improvement and thus so does long-term revenue generation.

Still very much a global growth stock. Working professionals will continue to join, as well as new grads. Linkedin is currently spending on marketing and R&D for global growth and will only become more valuable over time as it perfects its offering and increases its revenue/user. This is easily a profitable company once they reduce the aforementioned expenses. A new professional network will not dethrone this one anytime soon.

Granted, LNKD has network effects that most MBAs can identify, but how compelling is that for advertisers, recruiters? A must have? Does it justify more than 10X sales? perhaps. it is clear that TMF loves this stock and it does have some revenue traction, but operating expenses are growing faster than sales so you have to wonder how scaleable they are. I'm shorting them thinking that their stock is a several years ahead of where they are operationally.

Profit-takers pushed the stock down in 2014, but it will rise again.

China has ways of changing the playground. How do you change the graft? We went through this before with MDP when the books were cooked so there were losses with CGA & Yong. China seems to be a jinx, that is just my thought.

Pullback has been too severe. Looking for the share price to recover, though do not really expect it to rocket much more due to slower take-up. I've also received unsolicited calls from head-hunters which turns me off slightly to the service.

Facebook for professionals. They'll start to eat share away from careerbuilders and monsters of the world.

LNKD has fallen a lot. This is one of the few social plays that makes a lot of sense. It brings to the table revenues from both a service and advertising which makes it a much more stable offering today than TWTR. Add to that users have a real financial motivation to participate (improving their careers), it's a no brainer that LinkedIn is here for the long haul. Now they just have to do a better job monetizing their users. Their $1.58 ARPU last quarter is 30% lower than FB even though you could make the argument that the user should be worth much more on average since this is more of the upper echelon of web user. I think a $5 ARPU is achievable in the next 3 years
