NEW YORK,  February 20, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting
Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO),
AOL, Inc. (NYSE:AOL) and Linkedin Corporation (NYSE:LNKD). Today's readers may
access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry
analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.

Google Inc. Research Report

Google's share price is currently in its record-high territory hovering just
below the  $800  mark, continuing to rally after releasing solid financial
numbers earlier this year. Its core search business had undergone changes in its
search campaigns, placing larger emphasis on smartphone and tablet segments. The
move addresses Google's declining cost-per-click statistics and the need to
monetize the so-called "mobile gap." In addition, there are rumors of Google
retail stores coming up in an attempt to follow Apple's example in building a
consumer-electronics brand. The stores are seen to be selling Google-branded
hardware like its Nexus tablets and smartphones and Chromebooks, though the plan
may not push through this year. The Full Research Report on Google Inc. -

Facebook Inc. Research Report

Facebook is still the number one web destination with a 10.8 percent share of
total time spent online in  December 2012, according to data gathered by
analytics firm ComScore. The site demands the most attention compared to its
closest competitors, even though Google sites commanded a larger audience with
191.4 million people in the US. Google came in second place in terms of share of
time spent online at 10 percent, while Tumblr.com is second among social media
sites. Specifically, Facebook also accounted for 5 out of every 6 minutes spent
on social sites, or about 83 percent of time spent online. Tumblr meanwhile
accounts for 5.7 percent of time spent online on social sites, followed by
Pinterest and Twitter at 1.9 and 1.7 percent, respectively. In other news,
Facebook looks to be one of the forerunners in a potential buyout of
microblogging social site Twitter. The Full Research Report on Facebook Inc. -

Yahoo! Inc. Research Report

Yahoo is experiencing a sort of renaissance since hiring former Google executive
 Marissa Mayer  as its chief executive six months ago, resulting into both
investor and analyst confidence in the stock and company itself. Mayer
introduced several changes after assuming the post, including increased employee
perks, improvements in Yahoo Mail and Flickr, and "acqui-hires," or the purchase
of smaller companies for developer talent and products. Since then, its
Microsoft Bing-powered search revenue grew 14 percent year-over-year, while
total revenue for the recent quarter increased 2 percent year over year. More
changes are expected to come under Mayer, including positioning Yahoo to take
advantage of mobile traffic, and highly customized content paired with
calibrated advertising and product recommendations. The Full Research Report on
Yahoo! Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price
targets - is available to download free of charge at:

AOL, Inc. Research Report

AOL saw its shares rise following its good performance in its Q4 earnings
report, posting net income of  41 cents  per share, up from  23 cents  year over
year. The company's surge was due in part by veering away from its core business
to focusing more on content-rich sites like TechCrunch, The Huffington Post, and
hyperlocal news site Patch to name a few, and enhancing their monetizations
within 2012 in the process. The company also cut excessive costs and redundant
employees, bought a substantial amount of stock back, and doled out dividend
payments of  $5.15  per share. Recent news indicate that AOL is close to add
another tech-focused website in its fold, electronics review site gdgt. The
company's current tech-focused properties include Engadget, TechCrunch, and
Joystiq.  The Full Research Report on AOL, Inc. - including full detailed

Linkedin Corporation Research Report

Professional networker LinkedIn recently finished one of the most successful
sessions in the earnings season, soaring 21.27 percent at  $162  per share after
shredding analyst expectations in its latest earnings report. Revenues grew at a
whopping 81 percent at  $303.6 million  from  $167.7 million  year-over-year,
with an adjusted EPS of  35 cents. The success can be credited to product
innovations like Talent Solutions, its growing premium subscriptions and most of
all, the recent announcement that it already hit 200 million members. A new
service focusing more on job search could increase user base, where users can
perform deeper job searches that will allow them to find open positions in their
fields by Zip code, industry and function, while employers can also look for
prospective hires in a much easier approach. The Full Research Report on
Linkedin Corporation - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and
price targets - is available to download free of charge at:
