LinkedIn beats 12Q2

http://finance.yahoo.com

LinkedIn's second-quarter earnings are out!
It looks like a beat on revenue!

LinkedIn reported revenue of $228.2 million, compared to Wall Street analyst estimates of $216.5 million.

The stock is bouncing around pretty rapidly, but seems to be soaring. It was up as much as 7 percent in extended trading.

It posted an EPS of $0.16, which was in-line with analyst estimates.

It sees Q3 revenue of $235 million to $240 million, which is also in-line (on the low end) with analyst estimates of $235.2 million.

For the 2012 fiscal year, LinkedIn is increasing its guidance, forecasting between $915 and $925 million. Analyst estimates were $907.2 million for FY 2012 revenue.

LinkedIn was one of the best-performing tech IPOs of 2011, and hasn't slowed much since.

The stock is up more than 45 percent on the year, though it has slipped a bit in recent weeks thanks to weakness as a result of Facebook's IPO.

Now not just a network for professionals to connect, LinkedIn is one of the top methods for recruiting and hiring and finding a job.

We'll be listening in on the earnings call beginning at 5 p.m. eastern time, so be sure to check out SAI for any interesting tidbits we hear.

IPO Zynga voor 1 mia $

http://www.tijd.be

Wat al weken als hardnekkig gerucht circuleerde, werd vrijdag bevestigd. Zynga, de maker van populaire onlinespelletjes als Farmville, trekt naar de beurs. Het bedrijf zou 1 miljard dollar willen ophalen, maar specificeerde niet hoeveel aandelen het wil uitgeven of aanwelke prijsvork de IPO (Initial Public Offering) zal gebeuren.

Omdat er nog te weinig details bekend zijn, is het onmogelijk om een waardering te plakken op het bedrijf. Volgens SharesPost Inc., een bedrijf dat transacties met private spelers begeleid, is Zynga momenteel 15,4 miljard dollar waard. Daarmee zou het bedrijf de allergrootste zijn in zijn sector. Groter dan gevestigde namen Electronic Arts en ActiVision, dus.
Graantje meepikken

Door naar de beurs te trekken, wil Zynga een graantje meepikken van de grote vraag van beleggers naar aandelen van internetbedrijven. De professionele netwerksite LinkedIn zag zijn waarde vorige maand tijdens de eerste beursdag verdubbelen en de koers van de Russische zoekmachine Yandex steeg met 55 procent bij haar beursintroductie eind mei. Groupon mikt voor zijn beursgang dan weer op het najaar. De aanbieder van onlinekortingsbonnen wil via de operatie 750 miljoen dollar ophalen.

Volgens sectorkenners zou Zynga dit jaar inkomsten boeken van bijna 1,5 miljard dollar. Vorig jaar realiseerde het internetbedrijf een omzet van 850 miljoen . De Californische start-up haalt naar verluidt al een winst van 400 miljoen dollar.

LinkedIn op laagste peil sinds IPO

http://finance.yahoo.com

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- LinkedIn Corp.'s shares suffered their first major setback Monday as investors began reassessing the lofty appraisal that the online networking company received in its recent initial public offering.

The company's stock price sank by as much 10 percent in early trading before rebounding slightly. As of early afternoon, LinkedIn shares were down $7.74, or 8.3 percent, to $85.35.

It could be just the start of wild rollercoaster ride that could last for several months.

The ups and downs are likely to be driven by a debate over how much LinkedIn is really worth after rabid investor demand caused its shares to more than double in their stock market debut last week. The rapid run-up left LinkedIn with a market value of about $9 billion, or about 18 times its projected revenue of about $500 million this year -- a far higher multiple than far more profitable and better-established Internet companies. For instance, Internet search leader Google Inc. trades at about five times its projected revenue this year.

LinkedIn appealed to Wall Street because its IPO provided the biggest opportunity so far to invest in the online networking craze that is consuming a bigger chunk of people's time, a trend that in turn is attracting more advertising.

Although not as popular as social networking leader Facebook, LinkedIn has built an audience of more than 102 million members who use its website as way to connect with other people that might advance their professional careers. Other companies and job headhunters also scour LinkedIn for talented employees. Through a combination of fees and Internet ads, LinkedIn earned $3.4 million on revenue of $243 million. Its revenue is on pace to more than double this year as another million people set up a LinkedIn page very week.

But LinkedIn still hasn't figured out how to keep many of its members coming back to the website after they have posted their resumes. About one-fourth of LinkedIn's membership didn't even visit the website during the first three months of the year and those that did come stayed for relatively short periods of time. That's a dramatic contrast to Facebook, where its more than 500 million users are spending an increasing amount of time sharing their thoughts, playing games and posting pictures.

That's one reason an investment put together by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. valued privately held Facebook at $50 billion in January. Facebook has indicated it may file its IPO papers before May 2012.
