The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss emerging trends in technology.
In today's edition, Jeremy and Eric pit LinkedIn against Netflix to decide which one of these stocks is the better buy. While both are frequently cited for their hyped-up valuations, Jeremy finds a lot of value in LinkedIn's business model. Eric ultimately proposes that buying LinkedIn might not be the best way to play its disruption to the recruiting industry. Instead, he proposes shorting companies like Monster Worldwide that will continue to struggle as LinkedIn comes to dominate the recruiting world.
