What Wall Street shenanigans are giving investors fits this week? Dayana Yochim and Alison Southwick rip into Groupon (Nasdaq: GRPN  ) and its ongoing struggles with basic math, Best Buy's (NYSE: BBY  ) turnaround-plan blunders, and the mother of all marketing misunderstandings, courtesy of Kraft (NYSE: KFT  ) .
