By: SethRoberts Sat, 26 Nov 2011 12:10:23 +0000 Would you please make these stock price graphs using log coordinates on the y axis? A change from 120 to 110 is not nearly as important as a change from 20 to 10.

By: crumblrr Fri, 25 Nov 2011 06:36:04 +0000 I so much believe that was a very compelling article to consider as you would planning going IPO!!!

Groupon must have not seen this coming!

I hope they get to have a grip for their hope…

Good Luck

Is an interesting dichotomy.

By: mfw13 Thu, 24 Nov 2011 00:02:54 +0000 Felix, you state quite correctly that Groupon’s share price doesn’t reflect news about the company and is therefore akin to a volatile random-number generator.

My question is this…given the extent to which short-term trading has increased as a percentage of overall market volume, isn’t this true for many other stocks, and possibly the market as a whole?

After all, day-traders and millisecond long computer traders don’t care a whit about the long term prospects of the stock they are trading either.
