    • Looking Foe Some "Big" Numbers........
      The acquisition of Ticket Monster will make South Korea the company’s second-largest market after the U.S., Child said.
      “Ticket Monster is a perfect fit for Groupon as we continue to transition our business globally from a flash sale e-mail model to a mobile commerce marketplace,” Lefkofsky said in a statement. Since Groupon is buying Ticket Monster from LivingSocial Inc., the online-deals competitor may hold on to the stock, or distribute it to shareholders.
      “Groupon is hardly standing still, it’s made some fairly dramatic changes in its business model,” Peter Krasilovsky, an analyst at researcher BIA/Kelsey, said in an interview. “It’s a very different company than the one from a few years ago.”
      Oh Yes.........................

    • Ok! You Win...............
      Google can't crack local because, unlike Groupon coupons, search ads require local business to own and operate a Web page. If Google were to buy Groupon it could work to upsell some of Groupons thousands of local advertisers into search advertising.
      Oh Yes..........................

    • Check This Out.............
      Do the HOMEWORK! Amazon has funded Living Social. Living social will own 160 million dollars of Groupon stock after Groupon is done acquiring Ticket Monster from Living Social.
      Oh Yes..................

    • Called my broker also. He told me to add to my short position so I did so at $9.08 today. I notice that the first 2 weeks of November were good days for the shorts as they were able to sell stock short between $9 and $11 in the tune of over 5M shares. They will continue shorting on strength just waiting for the next CC which will be nothing short of a major disappointment . If it weren't for the Wall Street pimps promoting this garbage company, we would have never seen any prices north of $9 in the first place.

      • You got it right. They have been keeping the PPS in the $9 to $11 range just so they can short the stock. It looks like as time goes on they will have no stock over $9 to short. I predict the stock will trade down to the $7s between now and Q4 earnings and then gap down a point and be in the $6s. If Q1 sucks then it will be back to the $4s. Insiders aren't stupid they were glad to get out in the $9s and $10s. The company buying back shares at an average in the $11s tells us that it was only their buying that created the artificial top to the $12s. Stock is now clearly in a channeled down trend. Trend will continue until Groupon can deliver something solid which I doubt they can.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • I guess you should have called your broker when GRPN was selling in the high 11's low 12s.

      • 1.4 days to cover (as shown on the nasdaq site) does not sound like such a large short interest given all the attempts on this board to bash this as a "garbage company".
