    * Anyone watch the Linked In IPO today?

    The Linked In (LNKD) shares more than doubled during today's IPO.

    My take: Over-valued, time to short.

    Is it a tech-bubble? But bubble is good, it create jobs and innovation.

    If LNKD can be beneficial to my career, then I am more than willing to pay for subscription and that would be profit to LNKD.

    So far, only group discussions have been helpful, but not connections. Real life face to face connections is still what gets anyone their next job.

    Mike yes, is probably Over-valued, but still good if you came in just to do a 150% profit in 1 day and then leave

    Yeah, way overvalued. I missed the chance today to get in and make a quick profit.

    Interestingly enough, the shares fell a little bit today, but only by 1.23%. It is still priced enormously high.

    Perhaps a moderate fall next week?

    Don't feel that way. The problem is that you never know when it will peak, or what the peak price is.

    IPO shares were also pretty hard to get, and the shoot-up was quick (e.g. without having received IPO shares, you may not have been able to buy them on the market before the huge rise occurred).

    True. But GM...? Who would buy them?

    There is definitely talk about a possible new tech bubble. Facebook, Twitter, and now Linked In trading at levels that are not supported by their earnings.

    You can say they're unique, this is different, the revenue will come.. but I still hear echoes of dot com.

    If you ask me, it was expected to be so. Recently I read quite a bit about the company and LinkedIn seems to be a pretty good investment as far as the opinions go!!

    I still say: Short it! I am going with "overvalued".
