Drastically overvalued. Current stock price is a beneficiary of the hysteria and hype surrounding internet IPOs. The business model is WAY too easy to copy, and the imitators have already begun to spring up. With more mature, cash-rich behemoths like Google and Facebook just becoming established as competitors, Groupon will crash and burn. No barriers to entry, no sustainable competitive advantage, no thanks!
Great points all. While I am not sure who the competitors will be, the local "groupons" might well be enough to be the end of this national and international player for obtaining discounts. Look forward to looking at this stock going down.
