    GRPN forward P/E = Value

    A low forward P/E of 25 for such a growth stock means value. Compare this P/E to other stocks like CRM RHT RAX LNKD or even not so fast growing AMZN!.

    Fair P/E for GRPN of 50 puts the stock price at approx. $40!

    • The PE on this stock is infinity. It has never and will never earn any money.
      Sales are slowing incrementally, costs are high, and the business model is already showing signs of failure.

    • are using CRM and AMZN as benchmarks for a [otentially rational multiple for GRPN????


      CRM and AMZN are 2 of the most manipulated, big-boy controlled, over-priced pigs in the entire market, but even they earn profits - however slim! GRPN is YET to turn a profit friendo, and until they do and update everybody on those enticing "metrics" they used to brag about before being taken public, the jury is OUT.

      You've made just about the worst argument I can imagine regarding where GRPN's valuation might lie... ROTFLMFAO

      • Even FB was not profitable first 3 years
        GRPN was profitable last Q if you back out unusual 1600% tax expense

        Companies invest at this stage of growth to reap benefits.

        AMZN was also not profitable for several years.

        Many like you said AMZN was doomed in 2000/2001. Look where they are ...

        Betting against GRPN is not a slam dunk win. GRPN could show profits as expected

        Talking of big boys, most big companies are backing up GRPN.

        After their last Q, if you are not a worried SHORT, you will soon be one when you have to cover this stock at higher prices.
