Time to Buy LinkedIn?

The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill, and analysts Jason Moser, Ron Gross, and Andy Cross.

Shares of LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD  ) slipped on Friday in the wake of quarterly earnings. The professional networking site's revenues nearly doubled, but LinkedIn disappointed analysts with its forward guidance. LinkedIn expects earnings growth to slow as it reinvests in the company. Meanwhile, the reviews site Yelp (NYSE: YELP  ) got a better response on Wall Street. Shares of Yelp were up sharply. In this installment of Motley Fool Money, our analysts discuss LinkedIn and Yelp.

After the world's most-hyped IPO turned out to be a dud, many investors don't even want to think about shares of Facebook. But there are things every investor needs to know about this revolutionary company. The Motley Fool's newest premium research report shows that there's a lot more to Facebook than meets the eye. Read up on whether there is anything to "like" about it today to determine if Facebook deserves a place in your portfolio. Access your report by clicking here.

    The most hyped SPAM garbage company ever is Lnkd. Like 2.5 Billion SPAM mail every week.

    Insiders bailed for $1.5 Billion profit on stocks they got for zero cost.

    Yet the wall st. dimwits want muppets to buy $175 per share ?

    LinkedIN will NEVER generate the amount of profit that insiders sold for.
