Musings On Markets


The market for social media companies keeps growing up and attaching more sensible values for these businesses. The antics of Groupon management have harm it in the market’s eyes; this is the “mismanaged IPO discount” on value. The stock has been deliberately under priced because only 5% of the shares are on offer in the IPO and the business (and its investment bankers) want to see it pop on day one.

My think is that it is a combination of most three factors. Groupon has to be acknowledged with building a fascinating business model that has a big potential market and it is scaleable. What makes this company interesting is that investing in it is indirectly a wager on the economy. Unlike most young growth companies that are dependent on the economy becoming stronger and more vibrant for higher value, Groupon’s value is likely to be higher if the economy stays in the doldrums. After all, what business in a wholesome economy wants to market its products for 70% or 80% of the list price? Would I buy Groupon?
