Groupon shares continue their downward trend, hit all-time low

The company's shares yesterday hit $7.72 before climbing back above their record low to end the day at $7.77.

Daily-deals provider Groupon has watched its shares plummet as the weak European market scares investors away.

The company's shares hit an all-time low yesterday of $7.72 before eventually climbing back to end the day at $7.77. According to analysts, who spoke with Reuters recently, Groupon derives a large portion of its revenue from Europe, and continued softness in that market is driving many investors away.

Groupon went public last year at $20 per share. Soon after, the company's shares fell. However, they rebounded earlier this year, making some wonder if the worst was behind it. Since then, the company's shares have fallen off a cliff, and are down 70 percent since the IPO.

That said, analysts aren't necessarily convinced that things will stay this way for long. According to data from MarketWatch, 23 analysts have an average 12-month price target of $17.76. In addition, 20 of those analysts have either recommended investors buy Groupon or hold on to its shares.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
