Is Groupon under- or over-valued?
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 P/E ratio
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 7x. In other words, Groupon shares trade at around 7x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Groupon's PEG ratio
Groupon's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 11.017. 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 $54 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Groupon's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$1.1 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||3.69%|
|Gross profit TTM||$677.3 million|
|Return on assets TTM||2.06%|
|Return on equity TTM||83.86%|
|Market capitalisation||$651.8 million|

Groupon share dividends
We're not expecting Groupon to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Groupon's shares ever split?
Groupon's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 10 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.
Groupon share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Groupon's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19 up to $64.69. 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 2.5545. This would suggest that Groupon's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
