    Though I can't speak for Motley Fool directly, I'm pretty sure it's just based on some algorithms that take a number of factors into account. It's really just a game -- not a perfect indicator of potential. Overall, the Motley Fool appears to be pretty bullish on LinkedIn, in my opinion.

    You care to mention relentless selling by insiders? All told, rankand file insiders have taken $1.65 Billion in profit since IPO.

    Lnkd faces an enormous opportunity, really?

    Care to elaborate some more ?

    The entire global marketplace for hiring solutions is pegged at no more than $3 Billion US. Lnkd is already been valued at 700% more.

    Care to mention how much you were paid to write a Pump and Dump article yet again ?
