Question of the Week RESULTS: Groupon Is a Stinker

Groupon has reduced the size of its IPO, the company disclosed today in its latest regulatory filing, and it might be a good thing, based on peHUB readers’ response to our Question of the Week: Nearly two thirds of you said this stock is going to be a stinker.

Another three in 10 thought a $10 billion valuation was overdoing it, although the company might have a future. Only 6.1% bought into the $10 billion figure.

If the stock prices at $17, the midpoint of its range, the company would be valued at $10.8 million when the shares hit the Nasdaq next Friday.

One well-known cult leader predicts a first day spike but “lackluster long term” outlook.

By this time next week, we’ll begin to learn the truth.
