Defending Market Shares and Shifting Tides - Research Report on Google Inc., Facebook Inc., Yahoo! Inc., AOL, Inc. and Linkedin Corporation

NEW YORK, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO), AOL, Inc. (NYSE:AOL) and Linkedin Corporation (NYSE:LNKD). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.

Google Inc. Research Report

Google's share price is currently in its record-high territory hovering just below the $800 mark, continuing to rally after releasing solid financial numbers earlier this year. Its core search business had undergone changes in its search campaigns, placing larger emphasis on smartphone and tablet segments. The move addresses Google's declining cost-per-click statistics and the need to monetize the so-called "mobile gap." In addition, there are rumors of Google retail stores coming up in an attempt to follow Apple's example in building a consumer-electronics brand. The stores are seen to be selling Google-branded hardware like its Nexus tablets and smartphones and Chromebooks, though the plan may not push through this year.

Facebook Inc. Research Report

Facebook is still the number one web destination with a 10.8 percent share of total time spent online in December 2012, according to data gathered by analytics firm ComScore. The site demands the most attention compared to its closest competitors, even though Google sites commanded a larger audience with 191.4 million people in the US. Google came in second place in terms of share of time spent online at 10 percent, while Tumblr.com is second among social media sites. Specifically, Facebook also accounted for 5 out of every 6 minutes spent on social sites, or about 83 percent of time spent online. Tumblr meanwhile accounts for 5.7 percent of time spent online on social sites, followed by Pinterest and Twitter at 1.9 and 1.7 percent, respectively. In other news, Facebook looks to be one of the forerunners in a potential buyout of microblogging social site Twitter.

Yahoo! Inc. Research Report

Yahoo is experiencing a sort of renaissance since hiring former Google executive Marissa Mayer as its chief executive six months ago, resulting into both investor and analyst confidence in the stock and company itself. Mayer introduced several changes after assuming the post, including increased employee perks, improvements in Yahoo Mail and Flickr, and "acqui-hires," or the purchase of smaller companies for developer talent and products. Since then, its Microsoft Bing-powered search revenue grew 14 percent year-over-year, while total revenue for the recent quarter increased 2 percent year over year. More changes are expected to come under Mayer, including positioning Yahoo to take advantage of mobile traffic, and highly customized content paired with calibrated advertising and product recommendations.

Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at: [http://www.nationaltradersassociation.org/r/full_research_report/e5d5_YHOO]

AOL, Inc. Research Report

AOL saw its shares rise following its good performance in its Q4 earnings report, posting net income of 41 cents per share, up from 23 cents year over year. The company's surge was due in part by veering away from its core business to focusing more on content-rich sites like TechCrunch, The Huffington Post, and hyperlocal news site Patch to name a few, and enhancing their monetizations within 2012 in the process. The company also cut excessive costs and redundant employees, bought a substantial amount of stock back, and doled out dividend payments of $5.15 per share. Recent news indicate that AOL is close to add another tech-focused website in its fold, electronics review site gdgt. The company's current tech-focused properties include Engadget, TechCrunch, and Joystiq.  The Full Research Report on AOL, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at: [http://www.nationaltradersassociation.org/r/full_research_report/7717_AOL]

Linkedin Corporation Research Report

Professional networker LinkedIn recently finished one of the most successful sessions in the earnings season, soaring 21.27 percent at $162 per share after shredding analyst expectations in its latest earnings report. Revenues grew at a whopping 81 percent at $303.6 million from $167.7 million year-over-year, with an adjusted EPS of 35 cents. The success can be credited to product innovations like Talent Solutions, its growing premium subscriptions and most of all, the recent announcement that it already hit 200 million members. A new service focusing more on job search could increase user base, where users can perform deeper job searches that will allow them to find open positions in their fields by Zip code, industry and function, while employers can also look for prospective hires in a much easier approach.
