LinkedIn's "Weak" Guidance

On Friday's installment of Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio lead advisor Ron Gross take a look at some of the biggest blockbuster stories from this earnings season, to see who popped, and who dropped.

In this segment, Ron discusses why he'll be watching LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD  ) as it reports earnings next Thursday. Analysts felt that the company issued weak guidance for this quarter when it reported last quarter, saying it "only" expected a 37% increase in revenue.

Ron says he'll be watching when the earnings report comes out to see where revenue growth actually landed, and where the company is guiding to from here.
