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.
