Groupon Should Offer 50% Off SEC Fines

The WSJ.com reported  that Groupon is being investigated for unusual stock trading activity right before the company released positive financial information. The stock actually rose 18.5% percent from its previous close and trading volume was around 4 times the 30 day average just before the good news was released to the public. It is still not clear if the Securities and Exchange Commission(SEC) is going to investigate this possible corporate financial irregularity.
