LinkedIn Corp operates a social networking website used for professional networking. The Company's website allows members to post a profile of their professional expertise and accomplishments.

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 over 400 million members in over 200 countries and territories. The Company offers free solutions including Stay Connected & Informed, Advance My Career and Ubiquitous Access; and Monetized Solutions including Talent Solutions, Marketing Solutions, and Premium Subscriptions. 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.

Guru Investment Theses on LinkedIn Corp

Baron Funds Comments on LinkedIn Corp - May 23, 2016

LinkedIn Corp. (NYSE:LNKD) is the world’s largest online professional network. It has three business segments: Hiring Solutions, Marketing Solutions, and Premium Subscriptions, each serving different customers. Despite strong 4Q15 results, shares were down in the first quarter due to a weak 2016 outlook. After several quarters of inconsistent results, we believe management is finding it increasingly difficult to manage the complexity of three businesses. We exited the position.

Baron Funds Comments on LinkedIn Corp - Apr 26, 2016

LinkedIn Corp. (NYSE:LNKD) is the world’s largest online professional network, with three business segments - Hiring Solutions, Marketing Solutions, and Premium Subscriptions - each serving a different customer base. Despite strong fourth quarter results, its shares dropped dramatically based upon its weak growth outlook for 2016. After reporting several quarters of inconsistent results, we believe management is finding it increasingly difficult to manage the complexity and generate growth across its three segments. We were sufficiently concerned about these results that we chose to exit the position.

Baron Funds Comments on LinkedIn Corp. - Aug 24, 2015

LinkedIn Corp. (NYSE:LNKD) is the #1 professional networking platform, with over 350 million registered members. Shares declined 17.4% due to worse than expected quarterly results. The company also lowered guidance due to foreign exchange rates, an internal sales force transition, display advertising weakness, and the negative accounting treatment of a recent acquisition. We believe LinkedIn is a unique platform asset in the early days of capturing a $27 billion talent acquisition market and a $25 billion B2B advertising market, with interesting additional positive optionality.

Baron Funds Comments on LinkedIn Corp. - Aug 18, 2015

LinkedIn Corp. (NYSE:LNKD) is the dominant online platform for professional networking with more than 350 million registered members. Underperformance in the quarter stemmed from disappointing recent results, when the company lowered its revenue and profit guidance because of foreign exchange rates, an internal sales force transition, weakness in its display advertising unit, and the unexpected accounting treatment of a recent acquisition. We continue to hold the company’s shares because we believe it is a unique platform asset that remains in the early stage of monetizing multiple markets, including the $27 billion talent acquisition market and the $25 billion business-to-business advertising market.

Bill Nygren Comments on LinkedIn Guru stock highlight
We initiated a position in LinkedIn, the world’s leading professional social network, after the stock declined precipitously in reaction to weaker-than-expected full-year revenue guidance. In our view, the sell-off in LinkedIn’s stock, in which it shed nearly half of its value in one day, was a severe over-reaction when measured against the company’s strong long-term growth potential, its unrivaled competitive position and the attractive economics of its core Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings. Powered by network effects as well as the quality and breadth of its member data, LinkedIn pioneered the concept of “passive recruiting” at a previously unattainable scale, drawing from its approximately 430 million members. In doing so, LinkedIn created a unique, highly profitable subscription-based suite of services that enables corporations to search and communicate with talent, post jobs and market their own enterprises. At our initial purchase price, LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD) appeared substantially undervalued relative to other business service and Internet Read more...
