Better Stock Today Challenge: WWE vs. LinkedIn

In the spirit of World Cup competition, we're holding our own tournament in search of the Better Stock Today. We're pitting 32 companies against each other and you, the reader, will determine the winner.

World Wrestling Entertainment takes on LinkedIn for this first round-robin match up in our search for the better stock today.

Consumer Goods analyst Mark Reeth believes World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE: WWE  ) should win this match up for one simple reason: fan loyalty. Wrestling fans pay big money for the big events, like Raw and Smackdown. What they don't usually do are pay for the other, lesser bouts sprinkled throughout the year. This means the WWE needs to spruce up its events and keep things interesting enough that people come back for more than just the big once a year matches. With 670,000 people already subscribed to the WWE Network, once WWE inevitably hits 1 million subscribers and breaks even, everything beyond that goes to the bottom line and into investors pockets.

Jamal Carnette, Motley Fool tech analyst thinks LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD  ) should advance to the next round because of one big reason, the company is in the initial phases of redefining the job growth market. In the global search for talent, LinkedIn is the go-to place for both job seekers and employers. And while LinkedIn is busy disrupting this market, Mr. Market has sold off the stock. So, if you are looking for a true disruptor, LinkedIn deserves to advance.

    I'm shocked by the results of this matchup so far. WWE may have loyal fans but its business can't grow nearly as much as LinkedIn's can.
