LinkedIn ( LNKD ) is due with its Q3 results in the after-hours session Thursday, Oct. 27, and analysts polled by Capital IQ expect the company to report a profit of $0.91 per share on revenue of $955.5 million.

LNKD maintains a pattern of widening its earnings-driven after-hours trade in next-day regular session action, doing so in 12 of the last 21 quarters. Looking deeper into the performance data, the stock has recorded an after-hours gain following 13 of the 21 quarters tracked, adding to its advances the following day in seven of those events, or 54% of the time. LNKD has recorded an earnings-driven after-hours decline in eight of the quarters we've tracked, expanding on that downside move the following day in five events, or 63% of the time.

LinkedIn agreed to a deal in June to be acquired by Microsoft ( MSFT ) for $26.2 billion. The deal has not yet closed and is currently moving through the international regulatory process.
