Yes it is. I expect the CME to raise margins on silver because of this at any second now...

Yes.  The last time they raised margins was in response to pimpco's meltdown (arguably a better business model?)  http://i.imgur.com/iEpgb.png

Kaminsky just said this LinkedIn craze is linked in to Bernanke's easy money.  Doesn't inspire confidence in market for normal retail investor.  Another reason for them to "leave", as they were those buying over $110.

The brainiacs at Goldman sold all their shares at the $45 IPO price.

That means they left a "hundy" on the table.

Even Goldman underestimated the lunacy of the masses trading on margin just to buy margarine.

You're right. After all anything doing well probably means that silver is in a bubble.

Yahoo appears to have $1.2B in Net Income in 2010 and $15B in Book Value.

LinkedIn has........?

2.3 to 15 million in net revenue (depending on the source), admits it will lose money next year, and is faced with compliance/regulatory costs that will kill its revenue now that it's publicly traded, and a now current market cap of about 10 billion (it may end up at about 30% to 40% just by the end of TODAY - oh, think of 6 months from now, Gladiator!).

And it will officially mark the top before the fall.

I'm luvin' it. 2011 is shaping up to be too easy. 2012 will be a blast.

I will have internal joy everytime I hear someone claim Bernanke won't let the markets fall, just as I did in 2007 and 2008.

Yeah right. And you and Robo only make positive trades too.

You didn't have to interview huh. Just your CV. Wow, can you share the company you work for now so we all can benefit.

Linked In is more for poachers trying to steal other people and companies contact networks than anything else.

Whatever you want to believe this IPO price is BS. Explain the business model.

With the combination of facebook and linkedin you can compile way way too much information about a person. And that is just easy information gathering.  From there you can easily collect additional information thinking out of the box a little bit.

Both.  I once knew a dumb gal that posted photos of herself at the beach, her cell phone number, her home phone number, her personal/business e-mail, and the physical address of her home all on Facebook.  She was a 100% ditz.  People are being foolish by posting so much personal info. on a social website.  Bad idea.

"I once knew a dumb gal". That's the beginning of every bar story ever told.

I just recently did the same. While I "like" facebook (or what it used to be) its way way too over the top "social" and viewing my personal life now for me to keep it.

I removed my LinkedIn account for a multitude of reasons.

I have had a linkedIn account with very little on it for about 4 years, and nothing added since then.Occasionally a friend finds me and "invites" me to connect to their network in LinkedIn.  I haven't in at least a year.  The past 3 weeks, I suppose in anticipation of this IPO, I received email "reminders" that invitations were pending from LinkedIn almost every day.  Certainly were trying to create a swell.  Nothing wrong with that, but very different traffic in recent weeks.

BTW - I do Facebook, and like it mainly for checking out what my friends are up to.  Pretty passive about it.  On the other hand, I am a twitter fiend.  Watching many times a day and probably tweeting, on average, twice a day.

LinkedIn just joined the NYSE social network.

It's like joining any social network. The first thing you do is send out 100 invites and everyone connects (oh hey, you are on here now, great!).

I'm sure they'll be too chatty like everyone else and end up blocked (shorted) by half their friends within 2 weeks.

Wouldn't it be funny of the market put the circuit breakers on the intraday FALL of LNKD shares after ignoring the intraday SPIKE in LNKD.

Ponzi FUBAR market.

Absolutely hilarous.

I warned you guys that Bernanke was a genius.

The only one in world history that can re-incarnate the same NASDAQ bubble 3 times!!!

Heh, the LNKD ramp is even more spectacular that Capital One's hockey stick run from $36 to $56 in 6 months.
