SOCL’s Thursday price action may have given traders a sign that LinkedIn was going to deliver blowout numbers. The ETF gained 2.8%, rising to a new all-time high on roughly 16 times the average daily volume. If there is a near-term risk to SOCL it is valuation. Like it many of its 27 holdings, SOCL sports a high P/E ratio of 30.39, nearly double that of the PowerShares QQQ (NasdaqGS: QQQ).
