Cantor Raises LinkedIn Price Target On The Back Of Strong Quarter Results And Conservative Outlook


Cantor analyst Youssef Squali weighed in today with a favorable report on LinkedIn Corp (NYSE:LNKD), as the company’s fourth-quarter results topped Street consensus by 4%/12% for revenue/Adj. EBITDA, respectively. The analyst raised the price target to $280 (from $255) and reiterated a Buy rating on the stock.

Squali noted, “While FY:15 guidance looks conservative to us, steady improvement in member metrics, sustainable growth in corporate customers and ARPU, and new products (particularly Sales Navigator) should continue to drive outsized revenue growth/margin expansion over time.”
