11:52 EDTFBLinkedIn rallies after results, outlook beat estimates
Shares of social media company LinkedIn (LNKD) are rallying after the company’s second quarter results, and its outlook for both the third quarter and full year, surpassed analysts’ consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, LinkedIn reported second quarter adjusted EPS of 51c and revenue of $534M, topping analysts’ consensus estimates of 39c and $510.98M, respectively. Q2 premium subscription revenue came in at $105M, up 44% year over year, and represented 20% of total revenue in the second quarter. Cumulative members grew 32% in Q2 to 313M. Q2 adjusted EBITDA came in at $145M, or 27% of revenue. WHAT’S NOTABLE: For the third quarter, LinkedIn expects Q3 adjusted EPS of approximately 44c and revenue of $543M-$547M, compared to estimates of 40c and $540.86M, respectively. Q3 adjusted EBITDA is expected to range between $134M-$136M. For fiscal 2014, adjusted EPS is forecast at approximately $1.80 and revenue of $2.14B-$2.15B, versus estimates of $1.64 and $2.13B, respectively. FY14 adjusted EBITDA is expected to range between $545M-$550M. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, research firm Pacific Crest raised its price target on LinkedIn to $250 from $220 and kept an Outperform rating on the shares due to strong Q2 results. The firm said user metrics were “shaky” and still a “big question,” however they were optimistic about the company’s new initiatives such as job listings, international, CRM, and advertising. They felt LinkedIn was the least expensive of the fast-growing internet names. Another firm, JP Morgan, also raised their price target to $241 from $235, and kept an Overweight rating on the shares. They were impressed with the company’s better than expected Q2 results, its marketing reacceleration, and the re-launch of its sales navigator product. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, LinkedIn rose $17.63, or almost 10%, to $198.27 on nearly triple its average daily trading volume. Despite today’s advance, the stock has lost approximately 7% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the social media space include Facebook (FB), down 0.5%, Twitter (TWTR), down 1.3%, and MeetMe (MEET), down 4.6%.

16:49 EDTFBS&P ends week little changed amid earnings deluge
The S&P 500 finished little changed this week as mixed U.S. economic data and continued geopolitical uncertainty offset strong earnings from a number of major companies and upbeat overseas economic data. MACRO NEWS: U.S. economic data was mixed, as fewer than expected jobless claims were reported and durable goods orders for June were slightly higher than expected, but new home sales for June and a preliminary purchasing managers' index for July came in below expectations... Investors received some positive economic news from overseas, as HSBC's preliminary China purchasing managers' index for July reached an 18-month high. Meanwhile, a preliminary PMI for the euro zone for July came in at 54, versus 52.8 in June... Ongoing conflicts between Israel and Hamas and Russia and Ukraine kept investors on edge, with Friday reports indicating that no truce accord had been reached in Israel and that Russia was building up its troop presence along the Ukrainian border. COMPANY NEWS: Among the notable companies whose stocks rose after they reported quarterly results were Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Allergan (AGN) and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). Notable companies whose stocks sold off following their results included Netflix (NFLX), Harley-Davidson (HOG), General Motors (GM), Boeing (BA), McDonald's (MCD) and Pandora (P)... McDonald's was also hit this week by revelations that its restaurants in China had sold expired meat that was allegedly intentionally supplied by a China-based company. Yum! Brands (YUM) and a provider of products to Starbucks (SBUX) are also believed to have bought and sold expired meat from the supplier... In M&A news, Bloomberg reported that real estate website operator Zillow (Z) held talks about buying its rival, Trulia (TRLA). Both stocks surged. Shares of SodaStream (SODA) also rallied after Bloomberg reported that the company is in talks about selling itself to an investment firm that would take the beverage system maker private... On Monday, hedge fund manager Bill Ackman promised on CNBC that his presentation about Herbalife (HLF) would show why the company "is going to collapse." But the shares actually surged higher during and immediately after Ackman's presentation. Ackman has a large short position in the stock and notably alleged it is a pyramid scheme... BlackBerry's (BBRY) CEO told the Financial Times that his company was in early talks about partnering with companies to target the enterprise markets, in order to counter a recently announced partnership between Apple and IBM (IBM).
