Does LinkedIn Foreshadow Groupon’s Stock Market Future?

With shares of Groupon surging on its first day of trade, should you buy high and sell higher. Or take profits now?

According to the Najarian brothers, after Groupon's 50% spike, take the money and run.

Neither Jon nor Pete likes Groupon's business model due to low barriers for entry. Although they concede the stock currently has momentum, "that's a near-term thing," muses Pete. ”Longer term I question the valuation.”

Considering the stock jumped as much as it did, all of the Fast traders think the stock will probably trade just like LinkedIn and some other tech high fliers – that is make sharp gains right after the IPO to then decline.

Take a look:

Company Day 1 YTD
LinkedIn (LNKD) +109% - 14%
Zillow (Z) +79% - 10%
Pandora (P) +9% -12%


”If I held the stock I’d flip it today,” adds trader Steve Grasso,

”It feels like Netflix to me,” adds Jon Najarian.
