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.

10:22 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.
