What Groupon Really Needs Now

The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Bryan Hinmon and Jeff Fischer discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Shares of Groupon rose on Thursday after the daily deal business reported a smaller-than-expected loss. Groupon is one of the most heavily shorted stocks on Wall Street. In the wake of its earnings, is the stock a good deal for investors? In this installment of MarketFoolery, our analysts discuss the future of Groupon.

Groupon's story is one of the American Dream. The company went from 400 subscribers in 2008 to over 150 million today. While this story is definitely one of triumph on a business level, its success most certainly hasn't been shared by investors. Company shares have fallen over 80% over the past year and left investors panicked. Will this company live out its American Dream, or leave shareholders empty-handed? In order to answer that question, our analyst has compiled a premium research report with in-depth analysis on whether you should buy or sell Groupon right now, and why.
