    LinkedIn's (LNKD) Q4 earnings are due out after the bell, with analysts expecting that EPS climbed to $0.19 from $0.12 a year earlier and revenue 66.6% to $279.5M as the firm continued to grow its hiring-services business. "We believe the company's focused and calculated approach to expanding the recruiting and marketing product portfolio is laying a great foundation for highly leverageable growth," says Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster.

    LinkedIn (LNKD +0.3%) is underperforming ahead of Thursday's Q4 report even though Piper has launched coverage with an Overweight and $150 PT. The professional social networking giant has surged to new highs since delivering a strong Q3 report, and now trades at 94x 2013E EPS. A recent WSJ survey highlighted LinkedIn's growing popularity with small businesses as a marketing platform.

    LinkedIn (LNKD +3%) adds to yesterday's gains after CLSA's James Lee starts coverage with an Outperform and $133 PT. Lee thinks LinkedIn is addressing a $70B market opportunity, and declares the company's scale and products "disruptive to the existing war-for-talent game." He also likes LinkedIn's network effects and operating leverage, and sees a chance for the company to succeed in China.

    LinkedIn (LNKD +1.9%) trades higher after announcing it now has 200M registered users. That's an increase of 13M from the 187M reported on Nov. 1 in the company's Q3 report, and represents a doubling from March '11. The professional networking site's international reach has been growing quickly - 64% of registered users now reside outside the U.S., though only 36% of Q3 sales came from international markets.

    More on LinkedIn: At a conference yesterday, CEO Jeff Weiner stated his company aims to create an "economic graph" of information about professionals, much like how Facebook has created a "social graph" of connections between users and their interests. Weiner sees an economic graph enabling tools that allow companies to analyze a workforce and business conditions in a particular area. Also, as demonstrated by recent moves, he wants LinkedIn to be a bigger source of original content that can be used to demonstrate expertise.

    LinkedIn (LNKD) hopes to give its ad sales (25% of Q3 revenue) a boost by launching an API that will give developers the chance to build tools for automatically launching and quickly managing ad campaigns. That, in turn, could help LinkedIn be the recipient of the kind of large-scale campaigns often seen on Facebook, and enabled by the likes of Salesforce-acquired Buddy Media. Adobe is among the initial API partners.

    Facebook's (FB +11.8%) jobs app is nothing for LinkedIn (LNKD -0.9%) to be worried about, says BI's Owen Thomas after giving it a spin. Whereas LinkedIn provides a platform for finding candidates (along with job listings), Facebook's product is at heart a jobs search engine displaying listings already on Monster (MWW) and other sites. Thomas adds a search for San Francisco jobs turned up listings for positions in India. VentureBeat's Jolie O'Dell calls the app "barely functional."

    Facebook (FB +8.9%) uses its lockup expiration day to announce a long-rumored jobs app that allows recruiters to share listings. 1.7M listings are currently provided, and initial partners include Monster (MWW) and BranchOut. LinkedIn (LNKD -1.4%), which received 55% of its Q3 revenue from job listing services, has spiked lower on the news. The general preference among LinkedIn users to keep their personal and professional social media identities separate could insulate the company. (previous)
