What are Wall Street analysts saying about Groupon stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Groupon stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Groupon reported mixed fourth-quarter results. Revenues also declined on a year over year basis. The company has been trying to reduce dependence on goods deals and is shifting focus toward local services market. This is because local services market is a high margin business while goods deals bring in high revenues but smaller margins. The transition is hurting the company’s revenues as reflected in fourth-quarter results. Reduced international footprint will continue to hurt top-line growth at least in the near term. Moreover, intensifying competition is a significant headwind. However, the company’s partnership with Grubhub and ParkWhiz along with ongoing brand awareness programs is anticipated to boost revenues. Further, the company’s policy of launching new products on a regular basis is a positive. With a proper mix of products along with accelerating consumer activities, we anticipate growth going forward." (2/22/2018)

Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "GRPN reported a mixed quarter with top line impacted by int’l restructuring, macro headwinds in NA and increased focus on gross profit driving mix shift from 1P Goods to higher margin but 3P Local.
