This Is Groupon's Real Problem

The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer, James Early, and Ron Gross. In this segment, the analysts discuss how Groupon  (NASDAQ: GRPN  ) CEO Andrew Mason isn't particularly popular with investors at the moment: Groupon's share price rose 20% amid rumors that its board of directors was looking to replace Mason, and fell again when those rumors proved false. But is Mason really the problem here? The analysts take a look at Groupon's business model overall, and discuss some of the issues with the company as they see it.

Groupon's story is one of the American Dream. The company went from 400 subscribers in 2008 to over 150 million today. While this story is definitely one of triumph on a business level, its success most certainly hasn't been shared by investors. Company shares have fallen over 80% over the past year and left investors panicked. Will this company live out its American Dream, or leave shareholders empty-handed? In order to answer that question, our analyst has compiled a premium research report with in-depth analysis on whether you should buy or sell Groupon right now, and why.
