What are analysts saying about Groupon stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Groupon stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Groupon continues to see strength in its customer acquisition and shopping endeavors, aimed at developing its local core business. The impressive fourth-quarter results reflected this trend. Additionally, Groupon has increased its marketing spend, which should boost business to a great extent in the long run.  However, we note that the stock has underperformed the broader market over the last one year.  Groupon is investing quite a bit in the transition, which is expected to affect its near-term financials. Further, the company is yet to report significant profits, which is a concern for the investors. Moreover, intensifying competition and impending lawsuits are other headwinds." (2/22/2017)

  • Macquarie analysts commented, "GRPN continues to show progress against its key strategic priorities, and this mgmt team's disciplined/focused approach coupled w/the large fragmented TAM in online local underpin our OP rating on the stock. We see potential for organic N.A. local trends to re-accelerate over the next few quarters driven by recent consumer/merchant product improvements and investment in improving avg customer frequency; LT, there is also some potential for Intl. Our revised $5.50 price target implies 11.5x '17 EV/EBITDA, adj. for GRPN's $451mm merchant payable, and gives no credit for TMON or any future exited country sales." (2/16/2017)
  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "GRPN delivered a beat quarter and mgmt provided guidance (largely in line with expectations) based on the country footprint expected after the completion of int'l rationalization. Mgmt made good progress on its strategic initiatives and focus in 2017 remains on further streamlining the business, growing the customer base and improving the user experience - all expected to get GRPN back to positive EBITDA and FCF growth. We maintain our Hold and raise PT to $5." (2/16/2017)
  • Wedbush analysts commented, "We expect steady progress on growth initiatives will likely result in low-double-digit earnings growth, as restructuring is lapped and larger cohorts continue to stack. However, we are downgrading to NEUTRAL from OUTPERFORM as the stock has achieved our price target." (2/16/2017)
  • Evercore ISI analysts commented, "In Line on Revenue and Below on CSOI. We are in line with the Street on 4Q16 billings at $1.7bn (down 1% y/y) and on net revenue at $917mm (flat y/ y). However, we are slightly lower than Street at $21mm for CSOI (down 37% y/ y and 5.7% of revenue) and $0.04 for adj. EPS vs. Street at $24mm and $0.03 respectively. Mixed intra-quarter traffic data supports this conservatism in addition to survey data that suggests low net promoter scores. For 2017, we expect net revenue of $1.4bn (2% y/y and 1% below Street) on billings of $6.3bn (3% y/y), and for the bottom-line CSOI of $105mm (7.7% of revenue). While Groupon valuation looks fairly inexpensive on a multiple-to-billings or revenues, it is important to not lose sight of the fact that global billings and revenues are not growing, as the company looks to reposition itself in fewer key markets, while GAAP EPS remains negative. Further, although the company does appear to have ample cash reserve (~$700mm), there are roughly $600mm in accrued merchant payables on roughly break-even FCF. As such, at a minimum, we see the high level of volatility for Groupon shares as continuing. Our $5.00 target (unchanged), implies the shares can trade at 0.35x EV / 2018 billings, or 0.7x EV / 2018 revenue, and 32x 2018 adj. P/E, though offering little valuation support on a GAAP P/E basis until 2021 (41x)." (2/13/2017)
