The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discusses topics across the investing world.
Yelp's IPO sure was a frothy one, with the company experiencing a 60% pop mid-day. Some investors will feel like they missed out, while others are glad not to jump in on a company that's white-hot right now. Austin actually sees another indirect way to play the Yelp IPO. It's a unique and more risky way to profit, but if the "LinkedIn Effect" plays out the way Austin thinks it may, it could be another easy buck for your portfolio.
