Is Now the Time to Buy LinkedIn?

In this edition of The Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Brendan Mathews take a question from a reader who writes: "What is the current thinking regarding LinkedIn? Should I be concerned about the recent decline in price?"

LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD  ) is followed closely here at the Fool, and Brendan and Jason both see it as a compelling long-term investment idea. While 2013 was a banner year for the markets, it also took many tech-related stocks to lofty valuations that were a bit detached from the reality of the businesses. Jason thinks that LinkedIn's market opportunity and focused leadership are key points that will help guide the company to long-term success and that today's price represents a more realistic entry point for those interested in the stock.
