Linkedin’s Market Cap: What Else Could You Buy?

Yahoo points out that LinkedIn (LNKD) shares have a total market value of $7.4 billion. What could you buy instead:

“Four of the five most expensive sports teams in the world. Those teams include Manchester United ($1.86 billion), the Dallas Cowboys (1.65 billion), the New York Yankees ($1.6 billion), and your choice of either the Washington Redskins ($1.55 billion) or the New England Patriots ($1.36) billion. We actually think this one would be great fun; it just means you would probably run those teams into the ground, which no one would want.”

Nice.
