So far, 2012 has been a great year for LinkedIn. While the stocks of other high profile newly public tech companies such as Facebook, Groupon and Zynga cratered, LinkedIn’s stock has been on a tear for good parts of the year. Carried by solid financials and decent user growth, LinkedIn’s stock is up around 70 percent since January.
The only flaw in LinkedIn’s otherwise great track record was the leakage of user data in June, when hackers reportedly gained access to the passwords of 6.5 million users, because the data was not sufficiently protected. LinkedIn issued an apology and ensured users that no login data had been leaked alongside the passwords. Further damage was successfully averted and the issue could be put away as a minor hickup in an good year.
Google Overtakes GE as Fifth Most Valuable U.S. Company.
Google‘s stock has been on a tear in recent months, rocketing from about $559 a share on June 14 to an all-time intraday trading high of $764.89 on Tuesday. The stock closed at $749.38 for the day.
Thanks to this stock surge, Google’s market cap has ballooned by more than $60 billion in that time period to roughly $245 billion. In the process, Google has gone from being the tenth most valuable company in the United States to the fifth most valuable, passing other juggernauts like Chevron and IBM along the way, according to data from the Bespoke Investment Group.
Most recently, Google overtook General Electric, whose market cap currently sits at around $236 billion. Google is also on the verge of passing Walmart, whose market cap is just shy of $250 billion, to become the fourth most valuable company in the country.
Apple is far and away the most valuable company in the country, having passed Exxon Mobil earlier this year, with a current market cap of more than $631 billion.
Google’s stock surge isn’t attributed to any one factor so much as a combination of strengths in the company, including positive reports about its display advertising and Android activations, as well as strong consumer demand for its Nexus tablets.

My personal 2012 forecast for Amazon: They will do just fine and will deliver some outstanding numbers. – Read Disclaimer on top.
Netflix is in the news for a few days now, and the news is not good. The stock took a major hit over the past days and went down to $155.00.
Where is that stock going? Well, Netflix was for while the top address for movies (I wonder why). They had a good business model, though. For a low fixed price one could watch movies in DVD format. Clearly, the price and the service provided was outstanding. However, it wasn’t very difficult to figure out that DVD mailing is not the future of watching movies Continue reading
