LNKD Now Below Break Price

Tyler Durden's picture


Well, that took all of 8 days. To all who bought the shares from the bankers and primary allocators who wasted exactly 10 milliseconds to flip this flaming dog turd to the greatest momo fools out there with an E-trade account and $10k in discretionary cash (now well less), our condolences.

Man, the speculators never stop lusting for the same old 1999 "Superhookers".

LNKD will be under $30 within a year, and there's actually every reason to believe it could be under $10.

When the markets crash, due to a systemic event or series of events that unwind the Fed and Treasury nectar that for now have catapulted the artifice that is our new Amerikan equity markets into insane territory, and despite the much hyped 'Bernanke Put' (that failed miserably before, in 2007, just as all 'Greenspan Puts' failed, ultimately) LNKD could be one of the old-school 'Winners of the New World,' and see single digits or even go to zed.

It's by its own admission, and at best, generating 15 million of net income a year, and that was without the crushing compliance/regulatory costs of being an equity traded on a public exchange, and it has gone so far to concede it will lose money for the foreseeable future now that it is being traded publicly.

When reality sets in, we will all look back in amazement that a company with these numbers could ever have achieved a market cap of 1 billion, let alone 10 billion, and that is assuming it's ever able to be profitable while it trades on a public exchange.

Preceding every major market top and subsequent crash in equity Ponzi history, there are always macro events that sound the alarm, and then there is that one, easy to identify fraud that becomes emblematic of the incredible irrationality of what was the entire farce du jour, which could be LNKD when the chapter is ultimately written (though, admittedly, there is a great deal of competition to choose from in seeking that symbol of epic and transitory stupidity).

Wow, economy is going down the tubes and there is a virtual panic to buy tech stocks into the bell.

Bears just chewed up and spit out yet again. How much punishment can one take?  Seems like everyone wants to believe in the fabled "v-shaped recovery" in the 2nd half which Lance Lewis and Fleck used to lament about back in the day.

No, really let's be serious here.  Gold is just not money.  Social networking shares will be issued as the new money when FRNs go down in flames.  I buried my LNKD shares in the back yard at midnight.  You can't get my LNKD shares unless you pry them from my cold dead fingers.

If the Indiana Jones movies are ever remade later in the century, Indiana Jones will break open the treasure chest and IPO shares of LNKD will cascade out.

This is simply a fair market response to the less than stellar economic outlook.  There is no need for professionals to be linked, as all professions are about to be extinct.

Out of work professionals will be able to take advantage of the new Social Networking features of their respective state's unemployment website.

Is it me, or is it all getting a bit boring? It seems like everything that is going to happen in the markets or politics has already been chewed over a hundred times - some waiting for reality to catch up (Greece), others happening so rapidly the usual suspects don't even have time to cut-and-paste their expletives (Fukushima).

It was fucked before it became a thought. Let's see, I have no job but I am "Linked-In" with tons of other former associates I used to work with in the same profession I lost my job in. They, on the other hand, are still in the same profession that is soon to be dead and/or are unemployed also. I don't see the point here as to why this damn thing ever went public. :/

LNKD played its role.  It showed everyone how strong the market could be.  For a couple days all the talking heads had something exciting to talk about.  Now they can move on to whatever bullish story they can muster and have little fear than anyone will force them to point out the weakness of LNKD and that their idea was wrong.

Just like the guys who said killing osama would spark another long term rally.

Here's another contrarian thought for you sheep: LinkedIn shares will not go below $70 for quite some time.  Yeah, the company is a worthless, overvalued pile of shit, but use your brains people.

1) The other (currently private) social networking companies have a very vested interest in keeping the share price high, so they fetch a better price on their own IPO's.

2) There is practically no float available; about 8 million shares or less than a billion dollars total.  Zuckerberg could buy up the float at $70/share with the change in his pocket.  Can you say short squeeze?

3) Short interest is extremely high (ie the sheep all want to be short).  The price of puts has been outrageous.  The shares were down 7% today and yet the puts were still lower!  Again, can you say short squeeze?

The stock price will not crash until the larger goons at Facebook, Twitter, et al. have cashed in on their IPO's.  Go against the crowd and sell some puts, fools.

I wrote to Tyler the day LNKD got priced. What I said to him:

I got a few shares of LNKD. just sold them up $41.(86)

the stock went to 10 names. What went to the public was nothing. So this is a very big win (double) for a small group of fat cats.

Not at all sure how to prove that this was rigged. But it was.

I've been getting 100% of my work via LinkedIn since 2005.  My resume only needs to exist on LinkedIn.  I think they are doing something right. 

There is no chance I would move to Facebook for work-related content; I've only visited a few times because pages there do not appear on Google searches (facebook sues companies that crawl/spider them) and I'm not going to sign up to see someone's site because I received an email from facebook on their behalf.

Perhaps LinkedIn should have done an IPO auction like GOOG did.
