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.DL) 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. Though an impressive number by all accounts, it wasn't good enough for Wall Street. 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.
