On today's edition of MarketFoolery, the daily podcast from The Motley Fool, we discuss the following topics:
- The hits just keep on coming for Groupon. It turns out the daily-deal website's revenue for the first half of 2011 was $688 million, and not the $1.5 billion it had originally told the SEC. After cutting its reported revenue in half, can Groupon even afford to execute an IPO at this point? Tune in as our analysts disagree on what the immediate future holds for Groupon.
- Speaking of Internet IPOs, how are Pandora Media (NYSE: P ) , LinkedIn (Nasdaq: LNKD ) , and Zipcar (NYSE: ZIP ) handling the rigors of the public markets? Our analysts weigh in on which company has the brightest future.
- There's been talk that PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP ) should consider spinning off its Frito-Lay division as a separate company. Would that unlock new value for shareholders? Our analysts share their skepticism and discuss why Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO ) is better off sticking to a business plan that doesn't involve snacks.
Plus, we pay tribute to Arch West, creator of Doritos, and explore the amazing variety of flavors the brand has inspired.
