12:32 EDTLNKDEarnings Preview: LinkedIn shares up over 16% since last earnings report
LinkedIn (LNKD) is expected to report Q4 earnings after the market close on Thursday, February 7 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. LinkedIn is a social networking website that connects more than 200M members that create, manage and share their professional identity... EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 19c on revenue of $279.5M. The consensus range is 15c-24c for EPS, and $273.8M-$289M for revenue, according to First Call... LAST QUARTER: LinkedIn reported Q3 EPS 22c against estimates of 11c on revenue of $252M against estimates of $243.9M. The company gave Q4 revenue guidance of $270M-$275M and Q4 adjusted EBITDA $58M-$60M. LinkedIn also raised its FY12 revenue guidance to $939M-$944M from $915M-$925M in its previous earnings release... STREET RESEARCH: Most analyst firms have remained positive on LinkedIn following its strong Q3 results. Looking ahead to Q4, Piper Jaffray said traffic was trending above expectations and Susquenhanna says metric points to the upside in Q4 revenues. ITG Research also said that the company's November strength indicates that it is likely tracking above Q4 consensus numbers. Even though Facebook's (FB) announcement of a jobs application initially caused LinkedIn shares to fall, Piper Jaffray said the app launch would not be a competitive threat to LinkedIn and that its shares should be bought on weakness. In an analyst note this past week, Canaccord analyst Michael Graham said "If the stock repeats Q3's performance (good numbers and a pull-back on valuation), we would be buyers"... PRICE ACTION: LinkedIn shares have gained more than 16% since the first day of trading following the company's Q3 report. In Thursday midday trading ahead of its Q4 report, LinkedIn shares are trading up down over 1%.
