Bobby Raines 12/19/2013

A pair of insiders at LinkedIn ( LNKD ) recently made some big sales of the company's common stock. Co-founder Reid Hoffman and CEO Jeff Weiner both sold shares on Dec. 17 that they acquired converting class B shares into Class A shares. Weiner sold 37,000 shares at prices between $224.25 and $228.85 for a total of $8,332,935. Hoffman sold 83,334 shares at prices between $224.24 and $228.94 for a total of $18,767,736.

IK-> The technicals for LNKD ($219.09 up 3.67) are bullish with a downward trend. Recent support has been around $208.28 and recent resistance has been around $235.41. Standard & Poor's does not follow the stock. Look at the Jan. 255/260 bear-call spread for a 20-cent credit. That's a 4.17% return and the stock has to rise 16.4% to cause a problem.  [InvestorsKeyhole, Various news and data services]
