Year over year, its revenues were up some 89%. GAAP earnings per share was $0.03. LinkedIn was down just over 2% in normal trading, and is now rising in after hours trading.

Given the market’s reaction, and the fact that LinkedIn did manage to best expectations on one metric, the company performed well. Still, the company is richly valued. According to Google Finance, before this report and its recent stock uptick, LinkedIn’s PE ratio was over 575. LinkedIn’s performance today may buoy its Beauregard Internet brethren, Facebook.
Finally, LinkedIn has boosted its full year fiscal expectations “upward to $915 million to $925 million from the prior range of $880 million to $900 million.” Full speed ahead.
