The turbulence came after the professional social networking company reported its Q2 earnings. It beat expectations, with revenue at $712 million versus analyst expectations of $679.80 million, and an non-GAAP EPS of $0.55 versus an estimated $0.33.

But the stock still dipped because, as the Wall Street Journal notes, investors realised some of LinkedIn's unexpected strength came from the acquisition of skills video library lynda.com.
