on My Watchlist
rapid growth plus new areas of growth being added
Lots of room for growth and great management team. Like this long.
LinkedIn continues to increase its membership as the digital world becomes a more dominant force for job seekers and employers. The company's revenue growth continues to increase - currently at a 90% 3-year rate. A virtual cash cow with more than $2 billion in cash and no debt.
See "Linked In Show me the money"
First mover in a global market matching people to jobs. The world is their oyster. Ultimately should be able to eliminate in-house recruiting staff.
A virtual rolodex of business networks. Will survive and grow in importance in LR.
LinkedIn is the standard of the professional social network. If they continue to innovate and grow its user base, they'll become the Facebook of the professional world. HOLD FOR 5+ YEARS and reexamine for growth in user base and level of innovation (upgrading the service to meet the changing times in 2018).

too highly priced with growth slowing down
Will get a boost from Twitter IPO.
Crazy valuation. They are 'pretty important' in the career world, but this could easily change. If the service monetizes users it could easily annoy the people who do use it. And, unlike facebook or twitter, it is unlikely that the majority of the users are very active on the service.

Great base of folks and easy way to find talent without huge costs. A
I just don't see it. This is monster.com not facebook. The valuation seems crazy to me.
Valuations are about to get a little silly. Buckle your seat belts.
Not 100% sold on the business model, but suppose for the sake of argument that its profitable for years to come; its only a matter of time before another company (YHOO?) gets into this business. Microeconomics 101.
LinkedIn will grow and develop more in the next years but I believe it is overvalued at these prices. I also see that is has a hard time increasing net profits.
overpriced time to fall
