Groupon shares have moved up 100% in the past month. This could finally lead the way let’s talk to go even higher as the economy rebounds after Covid-19. Groupon has certainly proved that remote working for its staff has helped enable its growth. Why the share price is volatile, this gives investors a chance to buy in.
Consumers still want to enjoy the travel experience. Groupon took a different spin on travel with its Party Like a Rockstar offering. For $18,500 why not gather a bunch of people together and take a road trip on a luxury celebrity tour bus?
The full amenity bus has 11 beds, comes with to drive wraparound sofas, but only has one restroom and a fully equipped far. There is a full kitchenette and Wi-Fi. These exact buses have toured celebrities all over the United States. So, for those that usually spend $3,000 to $5,000 go on their vacations each year they can gather a bunch of friends and family and split the cost. This deal offering supplies Groupon with a a hefty commission.
Reverse stock splits are not always favorable after the fact. They usually signal that a company can be in trouble. Since Groupons 1 for 20 stock split, the stock has risen 150%. Short interest on the stock is also at a four-year high but Groupon is poised for a turnaround. Groupon is currently making its way for international expansion by acquiring smaller competitive companies. Groupon is in a key position because they offer consumers what they need in a pandemic, the lowest discount pricing essential need items and gifts.
It looks like consumers will be ordering online for quite a while to come over visiting a brick-and-mortar store to buy merchandise. We see this stock a buy with a lot of room to run going forward.
