Why LinkedIn Is Set to Soar

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino and research analyst Lyons George discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac reacts to LinkedIn's earnings call, which revealed 101% revenue growth when compared year-over-year on top of strong earnings results. Three things in particular impressed Isaac: the international opportunities, the new mobile platforms, and the diverse revenue streams. This isn't your typical advertising-based Internet media site, and the service provides a certain "stickiness" for the millions of users onboard. Factor in strong, visionary management, and this company just might be worth its price tag.

LinkedIn recently launched an iPad app to take advantage of growth in mobile computing. While the emergence of mobile computing isn't a new story, there's still plenty of opportunity for savvy investors to cash in on this once-in-a-lifetime trend. The Fool recently wrote a free report detailing three ways to play the mobile revolution, and we made it absolutely free to our readers. "3 Hidden Winners of the iPhone, iPad, and Android Revolution" is free today but won't be forever, so check out your copy today by clicking here. Enjoy, and Fool on!

    These two may be a little young too remember, but during the dotbomb, our exuberance over stocks without solid earnings cost us our portfolios. A great idea is only as solid as the money it makes and currently this equity is poised for a sharp downward correction. I shorted it near the top and will hold that position until the value is more in line with earnings and growth estimates. Only then will consider a position.
