Evercore Partners cut its price target on Groupon, Inc. (NASDAQ: GRPN) from $5 to $4.30 while reiterating a Underweight rating. The firm said the bottom-line miss overshadowed a meaningful volume beat. They also noted margin trends are worrisome, contracting 1000 bps Q/Q to 52%.

Analyst Ken Sena comments, "Underweight Rating Remains as Groupon's business remains in flux with greater signs of margin deterioration. Nevertheless, we see its better - than - expected 3P billings as encouraging, particularly in North America, where newer initiatives (i.e., Local Marketplace / Deal Bank, Mobile) are having effect, despite the lower economics to Groupon involved. Our newly lowered target of $4.30 (from $5.00) implies that Groupon should trade at 8x EBITDA, exclusive of SBE, on our 2013 estimates."
