Wunderlich Previews Twitter, Yelp & LinkedIn
- Expecting monthly active users (MAUs) to be in the range of 206-262M, below the consensus estimate of 267M.

- "We expect Yelp to report 82k active advertising customers in Q2, up from 74k in Q1 and local advertising revenue of $73.9 million, up 65% Y/Y".
- The company decision to post un-paid job listings should ultimately boost the value of the platform and increase the user base.
- The acquisition of Bizo will offer better B2B ad targeting.
- Segments should show growth: Talent Solutions growth of 48 percent YoY in Q2, Market increasing 33 percent YoY, and Premium subscriptions increasing 40 percent YoY.
