The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, as well as analysts Jason Moser, Brian Richards, and Matt Argersinger discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Daily deal site Groupon reported an $81 million dollar quarterly loss, and forecast flat sales. What's in store for Groupon? Are shares a value? What does Groupon's news mean for Living Social stakeholder Amazon.com ? In this installment of MarketFoolery, our analysts discuss the future of the daily deal stocks.


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.
