10:03 EDTYELP, GOOG, AOL, YHOO, LNKDLinkedIn price target hiked on ad sales prospects
LinkedIn (LNKD) shares are rising slightly after Piper Jaffray analyst Brian Pitz increased his price target on the shares to $215 from $175 in a note to clients earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: The company should be able to sell more advertising as it has added more content to its website, Pitz contended. The new content will drive more traffic to the website and give marketers more venues in which to advertise, the analyst believes. Meanwhile, customers of the website's Talent Solutions products probably increased their utilization of the products in previous months, ahead of a price hike that takes effect today, Pitz wrote. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that may benefit from a stronger Internet ad environment include AOL (AOL), Yahoo (YHOO), Google (GOOG) and Yelp (YELP). TODAY'S PRICE ACTION: In early trading, LinkedIn added 0.1% to $176.26.

In its "Digital Advertising & Social Intelligence Report" for Q2, Adobe (ADBE) wrote that Facebook's (FB) display ad changes doubled its click-through-rates, or CTRs, year-over-year in the quarter, while Google's (GOOG) display targeting changes reduced its number of ads seen by 22% compared to the prior year and its CTRs were up "only" 24% compared to the same period of last year. The report also contends that the "Mobilegeddon" fears regarding Google's changes to favor mobile friendly sites came true, noting that sites with low mobile engagement saw up to a 10% decrease in organic traffic after the changes were made by the search giant.

05:44 EDTLNKDLinkedIn upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Paul Vogel upgraded LinkedIn to Overweight and raised his price target for shares to $250 from $225. Shares of the professional social network closed yesterday up 60c to $213.93. Expectations have been reset following LinkedIn's weaker than expected Q1 results, and estimates for the back half of 2015 have potential upside, Vogel tells investors this morning in a research note. The analyst views the Lynda acquisition guidance as conservative and is more positive on the company's Sales Navigator opportunity following his survey work. He views the issues hurting LinkedIn's Q1 results as transitory in nature and recommends buying the stock into the back half of the year.
