Why LinkedIn is a 'buy' post-earnings: Pro

Despite weak guidance for the year, LinkedIn stock is still a "buy," Canaccord Genuity Managing Director Michael Grahm said Thursday.

LinkedIn shares traded lower in extended hours, giving back much of the day's 5.05 percent gain, on guidance concerns.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Graham was OK with the pullback.

"Correction in the tech sector is healthy, allowing people to come back to the sector," he said.

Graham continued to believe in the story.

"LinkedIn is well-positioned," he said. "I will still recommend buying the stock."

RiskReversal's Dan Nathan challenged that call.

"If it doesn't rally here, I mean can't imagine it's going up much more anytime soon," he said.
