Groupon Keeps It 100


...oh yeah, and today is our 100th issue! *starts to milly rock*

Friday, September 13th | Issue No. 100

MARKET MOVES...

S&P 500: 3,009.57 +8.64 (+0.29%)

Dow Jones: 27,182.45 +45.41 (+0.17%)

Nasdaq: 8,194.47 +24.79 (+0.30%)

PRE-MARKET PLAY...

Don Toliver - "Run Up"

REMEMBER WHEN I SAID...

Can’t Yelp (NYSE: YELP) but wait in Issue 86 talking about how the company is finally getting to the money?

Well, it looks Like Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN) caught wind and is ready to shoot the moon, high jump the broom with the the business directory and review platform but investors are saying...

"Too soon! Don't do it! Reconsider, read some liter-"

WHY THIS IS HAPPENING...

It's no secret that Groupon offers daily-deals and Yelp lets consumers pump or dump, through written reviews, those same companies with which they bought those daily-deals from. You would think it's like when Bey and Jay joined forces but investors have been on the run for a while and the announcement got'em like "Now you wanna say you're sorry." When Groupon had it's first pop-up shop in the market back in 2011, the company was valued at over $16B, now it's not even worth $2B with a current share price that can barely buy anything on McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) or Wendy's (NASDAQ: WEN) value menu.

THE RETURN...

Groupon's stock is down 11% this year.

FOR THE NEWB IN YOU...

Groupon's "pop-up shop" was actually its IPO. Not sure what an IPO is? Check out Issue 85 or watch this video comparing IPOs to mixtapes.

KEEP YOUR HEART WHOLE FOODS...

Keep your heart.

That's what some employees are telling Whole Foods (NASDAQ: AMZN) after hearing "Bye Felicia" to their benefits.

WHY THIS IS HAPPENING...

Whole Foods has almost 100K employees and about 2K are going to lose their medical coverage to "better meet the needs of the business." This applies to part-time workers only that work at least 20 hours a week while full-time works, who work at least 30 hours a week, won't be affected.

THE RETURN...

Amazon's stock is up 20% so far this year.

FOR THE NEWB IN YOU...

Nothing to see here.

ALL EYEZ ON...

Telemedicine.

Healthcare is a major topic in this country and has been for a long time. As much as last night's Democratic Presidential Candidates talked about better ways to fix healthcare, the only thing that we all can agree on is that folks want to be treated without leaving the crib. As we approach the 2020 election, health-related stocks will be watched closely.

Wanna hear it? Here it goes:

  • Medical: Teladoc (NYSE: TDOC)

  • Dental: SmileDirectClub (NASDAQ: SDC); Align Technology (NASDAQ: ALGN)

  • Pharmacy: PillPack (NASDAQ: AMZN)
