NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- LinkedIn (LNKD) has been upgraded to "buy" from "neutral," UBS said Friday. The firm said the valuation was driven by marketing solutions momentum and corporate client spend uptick. A $225 price target was set.
Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates LINKEDIN CORP as a Sell with a ratings score of D+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate LINKEDIN CORP (LNKD) a SELL. This is driven by several weaknesses, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself, unimpressive growth in net income, disappointing return on equity and premium valuation."
