There is a lot of talk in regards to LNKD earnings after the bell. Although, I agree there will be huge trade after hours. I personally think it will be to the upside.
Why do I make this prediction? Besides all of the chart talk, technical talk etc...If you look at how LNKD makes their money. Most of comes from the recruitment portion (Talent Solutions). The unemployment rate is still high. LNKD has become the leader in job recruitment as well as entrepreneurial support. This leads to increased traffic on their site which translates into increased ad revenue. If the unemployment rate was a lot lower, personally I would not make an earnings bet on LNKD. Since the unemployment rate is still high, In my opinion, LNKD will continue to be strong.
The same thinking goes for Z and TRLA. These two names are seeing revenue growth due to the recovery of the housing market. Until the housing market fully recovers, once again in my opinion, Z and TRLA will remain strong.
