Sell-off looks to be over done. Looking for modest rebound.

Mark it down, not going anywhere but up in 2014. A growing leader in eCommerce both U.S. and international. A lot of short sellers don't seem to understand how huge this stock is going to be but they will find out shortly. Get in now before Q4 earnings, it's about to take off!

GROUPON will retreat to under $10 and possibly the low $9"s. This retreat will peak the interest of the "mother of retailers" looking to expand and acquire established on line business , It will be bought out around the $12 to $14 range.

Groupon's business model is great for consumers, but bad for businesses.

When a business signs up, Groupon requires it to offer AT LEAST a 50% discount. Then Groupon takes 50% of each coupon sale. This leaves the business only 25% of their original sales price. Most businesses cannot take massive hits to their margins like that.

Groupon is also incredibly rigid. The terms of the deal cannot change at any point. You cannot change the time period the deal is offered, can't change the terms if there is a mistake, etc. There are various horror stories of people going out of business because there was such tremendous demand for their product/service that they were taking heavy losses from every sale. Groupon would not allow these businesses to take the coupon off their site.

There is also little to no evidence that Groupon is successful at advertising businesses, measured by Groupon buyers visiting the business for the first time that return for a second time without a Groupon deal. This makes the losses most businesses take even more unjustifiable.

I just do not think the Groupon model can last.

Extrapolating from Juggernaut0609's post, not only has Groupon received a huge influx of money, but have also replaced their CEO at the beginning of the year. Eric Lefkosky (co-founder of Groupon and several other companies, and a newly dubbed BILLIONAIRE) has taken the reigns and their business model hasn't looked any better.
Their test is to find a way to retain advertisers as they were having lots of issues with one-and-done customers who would exploit the coupon to go to a restaurant, only to buy as little as possible, get their discount, and never return. It will be interesting to see how Groupon approaches increasing their profit margins by expanding their business customer client-base.
The more they can offer the consumer across multiple platforms, the better their outlook will look!

I think Groupon has some great insight. I like their business model. As someone who likes to get a great deal, especially when I'm travelling, I think that Groupon is something that everyone can take advantage in. I think as their popularity grows, and as they reach more cities, they will have a lot of growth potential.

Bounced on insider buying and LivingSocial layoffs; however, I believe those layoffs are indicative of failing business model.
