Groupon reports on May 8, and investors are fearing the worst.

Groupon joins Zynga as two of the most famous busted IPOs of the late 2011 class. The dot-com darlings went public with plenty of hype, but both the daily deals leader and the top dog in social gaming have been meandering in the single digits in recent months.

In this video, longtime Fool contributor Rick Munarriz explains why Groupon deserves more respect. It's not Zynga, Rick argues, pointing out that Groupon is profitable, growing its top line, and has embraced industry changes to evolve into a viable business.
