Guru Investment Theses on LinkedIn Corp

Baron Funds Comments on LinkedIn Corp - Feb 20, 2014

LinkedIn Corp. (LNKD) is the leading online professional networking platform with more than 250 million registered members. After rising significantly earlier in 2013, shares fell during the quarter in reaction to a slight deceleration in revenue growth in its most recent earnings results. We were not overly troubled by this deceleration. We continue to own shares in LinkedIn because we believe it is a unique Internet platform asset that still has many ways to capture revenues in the approximately $27 billion talent acquisition market and the approximately $25 billion business to business advertising market. Furthermore, we believe that the company's profit margins will eventually be much higher than they are today.



From Baron Funds' fourth quarter letter 2013 to shareholders.

Baron Funds Comments on LinkedIn - Nov 06, 2013

LinkedIn Corp. (LNKD) is the largest online professional network with more than 200 million registered members. One of the business's defining characteristics is the attractive demographics of its white-collar professional user base, making the network of particular interest to both corporate recruiters and advertisers. We believe that LinkedIn is addressing multiple large markets (including the global markets for talent acquisition and business to business advertising) with a disruptive and highly-scalable business model. We also like the fact that more than half the company's revenues derive from annual subscription fees, where we believe the company has ongoing pricing flexibility. The stock has performed well since its 2011 IPO, and it rose again, partly on the strength of its quarterly results. LinkedIn beat Wall Street's expectations and reported accelerating user engagement metrics. In addition, investors were pleased by the progress LinkedIn has made in monetizing the traffic that flows to its sites from mobile devices.

From Ron Baron's Baron Funds third quarter 2013 report.

Traded in other countries:LKI.Germany, LNKD.Mexico, LNKD.Switzerland, 0QZJ.UK,
LinkedIn Corp was incorporated in Delaware on March 6, 2003, under the name LinkedIn, Ltd. and changed its name to LinkedIn Corporation in January 2005. The Company operates an online professional network on the Internet through which the Company's members are able to create, manage and share their professional identities online, build and engage with their professional networks, access shared knowledge and insights, and find business opportunities, enabling them to be more productive and successful. The Company currently has approximately 277 million members in over 200 countries and territories. Its comprehensive platform provides members with solutions, including applications and tools, to search, connect and communicate with business contacts, learn about attractive career opportunities, join industry groups, research organizations and share information. The Company provides the following key benefits to their members: ability to manage their professional identity, enhanced ability to build and engage with their professional network, access to knowledge, insights and opportunities, aid in matching talent with opportunity, an efficient marketing channel, targeted advertising, and an increase in employee productivity. In addition, its core value of putting members first may conflict with the short-term interests of its business, the number of its registered members is higher than the number of actual members, and a substantial majority of its page views are generated by a minority of its members. Finally, it expects to face increasing competition in the market for online professional networks. The Company is subject to a number of foreign and domestic laws and regulations that affect companies conducting business online, many of which are still evolving and could be interpreted in ways that could harm its business.
