LinkedIn is getting an upgrade from JP Morgan this morning from “neutral” to “overweight.”

The reason? Its three lines of business are on fire right now.

Here’s JP Morgan analyst Doug Anmuth:

Continued strength across business lines. LinkedIn’s three business segments continued to deliver strong growth in 3Q, with Hiring Solutions (+160%), Marketing Solutions (+113%), and Premium Subscriptions (+81%), outpacing our prior estimates of 133%, 99%, and 56%, respectively. We are encouraged by the company’s growing penetration in the enterprise market (~7,400 customers), accelerating member growth, and strong user engagement trends. Importantly, despite very heavy investments in field sales, international expansion, and new products, LinkedIn continues to post solid mid-teens EBITDA margins and we look for margin expansion into 2012.
