Why LinkedIn Is Set to Soar


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino and research analyst Lyons George discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac reacts to LinkedIn's earnings call, which revealed 101% revenue growth when compared year-over-year on top of strong earnings results. Three things in particular impressed Isaac: the international opportunities, the new mobile platforms, and the diverse revenue streams. This isn't your typical advertising-based Internet media site, and the service provides a certain "stickiness" for the millions of users onboard. Factor in strong, visionary management, and this company just might be worth its price tag.

LinkedIn recently launched an iPad app to take advantage of growth in mobile computing. While the emergence of mobile computing isn't a new story, there's still plenty of opportunity for savvy investors to cash in on this once-in-a-lifetime trend. The Fool recently wrote a free report detailing three ways to play the mobile revolution, and we made it absolutely free to our readers.
