Did Yelp Just Save the Bulls?

A positive reaction to earnings as well as several analyst upgrades this morning has sent beaten down $YELP soaring as much as +14% today, leading many on StockTwits to speculate that perhaps it has put in a bottom (at least in the short term)?

$YELP over 30% rally from lows just days ago. A bit more to go…..and then some.

More importantly, the price action in $YELP may be sending signals about the state of other beaten down siblings:

Who would have thought it would be $YELP that revives $SOCL? $FB $LNKD

Note how $TWTR disappointment couldn't hurt the momo stocks yesterday but $YELP win is juicing them up. That's bullish action

We wouldn't be fading $YELP with more positive comments out on $FB – looks like a bit more "rotation" back into #socialmedia $LNKD up next

As investors have had time to digest the latest data, some bullish themes are beginning to emerge:

$YELP great company, low market cap, good takeover prospect or potential to become a bigger company on its own. Mkt always pay up for growth

$YELP growth metrics year over year are VERY promising, user growth and new contract business growth both +40% y/y

$YELP A nice surprise. Average news is good news finally.

If the bullish thesis holds, the next question becomes: Where can we go from here?

If $YELP can make of bullish break of $71, looks like clear sailing into the $80 area. Watch for momentum to build. http://stks.co/i0Yrp

The good news for bulls is, sentiment is showing signs of supporting higher prices:
