You're right, guidance was weak...where's the growth for this market cap? And then you have all the fair weather analysts who raise the PPS targets when its already run way up. It would make sense if they did that on a decent pullback, but no, they're fair weather guys who don't have a clue and add to the bubble....they're worse than Bernanke.
this market can't be analyszed on that basis, it has to be looked at in terms of WS being able to make up any bullish story based on Central Banks liquidity behind it: that's how the past asset bubbles were formed and how this one is as well.
The only IDIOT here is you. If you had 24 bilion $ , would you buy LNKD ? It brings 20 milion profits a year. It would take you over 100 years to break even.
And for such price to earnigs ratio to make any sense, their growth should be accelerating not decelerating as in case of LNKD.
