NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- A week after Facebook (FB) surprised Wall Street to the upside, LinkedIn (LNKD) will try to do the same. Jim Cramer of TheStreet tells "Mad Money" research director Nicole Urken what LinkedIn has to do in order to impress.
Facebook reported impressive advertising revenue on strong mobile results. LinkedIn, which reports earnings on Thursday after the close, will need to have strong ad revenue, as well.
Although the company has a very good subscription model, it "bores" investors, according to Cramer. For the big upside move to occur, the company needs to blow out the advertising numbers.
