17:45 EDTLNKDLinkedIn CEO says accelerated product innovation drove Q4, FY12 results
LinkedIn (LNKD) CEO Jeff Weiner said, "2012 was a transformative year. We exited 2011 having successfully revamped our underlying development infrastructure. Based on that investment, we said that 2012 would be a year of accelerated product innovation, and it was. The products we delivered throughout the year drove member engagement and financial results to record levels in the fourth quarter." Revenue from Talent Solutions products increased 90% year over year, while Marketing Solutions and Premium Subscriptions revenue rose 68% and 79%, respectively. At the end of the fourth quarter, cumulative membership grew 39% year over year, and the company ended the year with nearly 202M members. LinkedIn averaged 116M monthly unique visitors during Q4, growing 26% year over year. More importantly, member page views grew approximately 67% in Q4, the highest page growth in 2012. More than 64% of all LinkedIn members now come from the international market. Mobile remains the company's fastest growing consumer service. In Q4 LinkedIn averaged 27% of unique visiting members coming through the mobile app versus just 15% a year ago. The company remains encouraged by its growing scale outside the U.S., especially in newer geographies, and says it is making continued progress to achieving its long term operating target of 30% adjusted EBITDA.

10:33 EDTLNKDFacebook, Twitter slip following cautious valuation comments from Fed
Shares of a number of companies in the social media and biotech industries moved lower following the circulation of cautious comments about their stock valuations that were included in the Federal Reserve's latest Monetary Policy Report. WHAT'S NEW: In the report, presented by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and signed on behalf of the governors by Chair Janet Yellen, the central bank wrote that some broad equity price indexes have increased to all-time highs in nominal terms since the end of 2013, but that valuation measures for the overall market in early July were "generally at levels not far above their historical averages." However, the Fed's report also cautioned that valuation metrics in some sectors do appear substantially "stretched," particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year. As support for its assessment, the Fed noted that ratios of prices to forward earnings for "smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms" remain "high relative to historical norms." PRICE ACTION: Following the circulation of the comments in the Fed report, shares of Facebook (FB) are down 88c, or 1.3%, to $67.02, Twitter (TWTR) is down 24c, or 0.6%, to $38.07 and LinkedIn (LNKD), is down 21c, or 0.1%, to $159.57. Shares of some biotechnology companies including Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) also ticked lower following the circulation of the comments from the Fed's report.
