Tech Biz Replay: Facebook PONDERS Jobs Board, Samsung’s Windows RT TABLET
Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) shares start off hot Monday than cool off some, but are up more than 20 percent over June, compared with the 3 percent gain for the NASDAQ. A report that FB will introduce a jobs board might have ignited the latest rally. The new board will combine the listings from BranchOut and other third-party platforms; and according to JPMorgan and Topeka Capital the move is not a threat to LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD), as both analyst groups say that user preferences should maintain separate personal and professional social networking profiles. At the same time, a Wall Street Journal article notes that a minimum of 160 mutual funds purchased Facebook shares in May, including some dividend and value funds.
