LinkedIn Deserved Its Post-Earnings Explosion

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and Chief Technology Officer Jeremy Phillips discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Eric and Jeremy look at LinkedIn's tremendous quarter. As the company continues disrupting traditional staffing plays like Monster Worldwide, its valuable hiring solutions segment continues growing. Also of great importance is that the company is seeing continuing international traction. LinkedIn's ability to continue its recurring revenue channels makes it a much better social play than recent IPO peers like Quepasa and Renren, who investors frequently buy to get better exposure to the booming social media space.

Social media plays like LinkedIn and Renren might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
