Canaccord Genuity maintains a 'Buy' on LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD) price target of $135.00.

Analyst, Michael Graham, said, "Strong Q2 results with broad-based upside. Profitability was impressive, and management raised guidance emphatically. Beyond a couple of small speed-bumps for Q3 and Q4 (temporarily high expenses and tax rate), we believe the outlook is bright...For 2012, we raise our revenue estimate by 3%. Due to mostly temporary expense increases and a temporarily high tax rate, we lower our 2012 EPS estimate from $0.72 to $0.59. Our 2013 EPS estimate is unchanged but reflects higher margin offset by a higher tax rate as LinkedIn continues to work through early stages of its international tax strategy."
