Professional Diversity Network (IPDN) announced that it has released an open letter to stockholders from CEO James Kirsch, stating in part: "Recently, Professional Diversity Network, Inc. announced that LinkedIn Corporation (LNKD) provided written notification to the company of its decision to terminate the Diversity Recruitment Partnership Agreement dated November 6, 2012 with the company, effective as of March 30, 2014, and as a result, LinkedIn will no longer be a reseller of the company's diversity recruitment products and services. LinkedIn's notice of termination did not provide a reason for termination. To date, we believe we had an excellent professional relationship with LinkedIn. When we entered into the LinkedIn Agreement, our company's anticipation was that LinkedIn would generate approximately $50M of revenue from the sales of our products and services in the near term...We anticipate that the end of our reseller relationship with LinkedIn on March 30, 2014 will have a negative revenue impact on the company in the near term. LinkedIn has been a key strategic ally to the company and our involvement with their team has expanded our reach, enhanced our profile and helped to educate recruiters about the value of Professional Diversity Network."

10:22 EDTLNKDAfter meeting with CEO, JPMorgan says buy LinkedIn
After meeting with LinkedIn's CEO Jeff Weiner and CFO Steve Sordello, JPMorgan tells investors to buy the stock. Calling the recent decline in the shares a buying opportunity, the firm is upbeat about the outlook for the company's Talent, Marketing, and Sales Navigation units. WHAT'S NEW: Talent has performed well since the company assigned new sales professionals to most of its accounts in the first quarter, JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth quoted LinkedIn as saying. Additionally, the company improved Talent by enabling users to search by key criteria such as hiring volume and overall spending potential, Anmuth believes. Meanwhile, LinkedIn is improving Marketing by replacing display ads with sponsored updates which have higher click through rates and pricing, the analyst added. As a result of this change, Marketing's growth could reaccelerate in 2016, Anmuth contended. Additionally, LinkedIn's recently acquired online learning website, Lynda.com, is "just beginning to ramp," and its Sales Navigation unit is poised to make bigger deals with corporations, Anmuth believes. The analyst kept a $300 price target and Overweight rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On August 13, research firm Stifel called LinkedIn its "best emerging large cap idea." The firm expects positive catalysts to emerge for the company in the second half of 2015. It kept a Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, LinkedIn lost 0.7% to $188.
