Valuing Groupon stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Groupon's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Groupon's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 239x. In other words, Groupon shares trade at around 239x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Groupon's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7507. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Groupon's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Groupon's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$18.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Groupon's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 3.1 million Groupon shares held short by investors – that's known as Groupon's "short interest". This figure is 7.2% up from 2.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Groupon shares can be evaluated.
Groupon's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Groupon shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Groupon shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Groupon's SIR currently stands at 1.85. In other words for every 100,000 Groupon shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1850 shares are currently held short.
However Groupon's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Groupon shares, or, against the total number of tradable Groupon shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Groupon's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Groupon shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1618% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Groupon shares, roughly 162 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Groupon.

We're not expecting Groupon to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Groupon's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 11 June 2020. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Groupon shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Groupon shares which in turn could have impacted Groupon's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Groupon's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.48 up to $35.8. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Groupon's is 2.2333. This would suggest that Groupon's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
