Cantor Fitzgerald upgraded LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $250.00 (from $170.00). Analyst Youssef Squali thinks LinkedIn is a stock worth chasing.

"While we don't like chasing runaway stocks (and LNKD has certainly been one), we don't mind being forced to do so in rare cases where a company keeps outperforming expectations and where the long-term outlook keeps getting better with every passing quarter—we believe LNKD is one of these rare cases," said Squali.

"We're raising our estimates (esp. outer years) and DCF-derived PT to $250 from $170, primarily reflecting an increase in our intermediate and long-term revenue CAGR to 30%, from 25% previously," he added.
