LinkedIn just reported massive, killer earnings for the third quarter after markets closed today.
The company seriously beat expectations with non-GAAP earnings of 22 cents per share and revenues of $252 million.
GAAP earnings were 2 cents per share.
Shares closed under $107, but soared 4 percent in after-hours trading to $111.
Analysts were expecting a strong quarter despite a tough environment in Europe. The consensus, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters was for earnings of 11 cents a share, up 83% year over year, and revenue of $244 million—which was a tad higher than the company's guidance.
In any event, LinkedIn blew past its own guidance and analysts' projections.
