10:15 EDTYELPGroupon retreats after analyst starts coverage with sell rating
The shares of Groupon (GRPN) after falling after research firm Cowen initiated coverage of the stock with an Underperform rating, the firm's equivalent to a sell, warning that the company's operating margins are "low and trending down." WHAT'S NEW: Groupon's margins are "steadily deteriorating" as the company has lowered the amount it charges retailers who participate in its Services deals, Cowen analyst Kevin Kopelman reported. Moreover, Groupon has begun subsidizing the discounts that Services merchants offer, the analyst said. Meanwhile, the coupon company's Shopping business carries much lower margins than its Services unit and its efforts to raise Shopping's margins have yielded "choppy" progress, according to Kopelman. The year-over-year growth of Groupon's active North America customer base dropped to 10% in Q2, from 18% in the second quarter of 2014, indicating that its core market has peaked, the analyst stated. Noting that Groupon has identified food delivery as its next growth catalyst, Kopelman warned that the space is "hyper-competitive." Yelp (YELP), Amazon (AMZN) and Uber have all announced plans to enter the sector, noted the analyst, who believes that it will be difficult for Groupon to generate return on investment in the space. Kopelman set a $2.75 price target on Groupon. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Grubhub (GRUB) is a key player in the Internet food delivery space. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Groupon fell 3.7% to $3.68, while GrubHub lost 1% to $28.18.

Google (GOOG) and Facebook (FB) are likely to continue dominating online advertising, with Twitter (TWTR), Yahoo (YHOO), and LinkedIn (LNKD) increasingly becoming "distant rivals" as advertisers flock to the two biggest names in the space, Barron's contends in its 'Technology Trader' column. Shares of Google and Facebook "probably have decent upside from here," while the future of Angie's List (ANGI) and Yelp (YELP) looks "less certain," Barron's adds. Reference Link
