    This stock is a bubble at this price like when Yahoo was 200 in 2000. Worth no more than $80/share

    no matter how you look at it!!!!

    • Agree that it's overvalued but, unlike Yahoo, they have recurring subscription revenue from recruiters whereas Yahoo and others only had income from advertisers. It's more of a SalesForce model.

    • 80 is being generous - face it, lnkd is nothing more than a spam emailer that can cook books.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • I agree that it's overvalued but it does have database/CRM value and it is functionally better than it's competition. It also has recurring subscription revenue from recruiters that others, like FB, don't...yet. That said, it's not exactly amazing. Job applicants still have to fill out applications on external websites in most cases. They've saturated the US market from a member standpoint (look at their member count versus the number of people that make up nonfarm payrolls) and any growth in international will come at a substantially higher cost as they'll have to hire personnel and implement procedures to deal with the myriad and variable costs and legal procedures for doing business in each country. Moreover, the possible competition from FB and others is being downplayed but is very real. Investors and analysts like to claim that LNKD is professional and FB is personal. That's overstated to say the least. I'd challenge most people to look at their LNKD network and give an honest appraisal of how many people in their LNKD network are family and friends. I don't believe that people deny their aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends access to their LNKD network. Etc. Etc. Etc.
