Yelp Sees Mid-Week Increase and 4 Hot Stocks to Track

Yelp Inc’s (NYSE:YELP) early supporters apparently continue to possess a high opinion of the online business review service, which is a relief to Wall Street’s, after insiders at numerous other Internet companies dropped some of their shares at the first opportunity. A Wednesday increase of over 22 percent in Yelp’s stock price showed that the company’s major shareholders have held on to their stakes instead of seizing on a chance to reap the gains which have accumulated from investments made prior to the 8-year-old service’s going public in early March. The first selling window for Yelp’s insiders opened Wednesday with the expiration of a rule that required them to hold on to their stock for 180 days following the company’s completion of its initial public offering. Shares of Yelp Inc are trading 2.68% lower today.
