NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I received quite a bit of hate mail for suggesting what Wall Street already knows -- local deals giant Groupon (GRPN - Get Report) was essentially about to expire. I offered my opinion and what I thought was a pretty good argument.My premise was simple -- although the company has a great idea, it just does not seem sustainable -- at least not in its current format. As we are currently finding out with Facebook (FB - Get Report) not every idea makes a great investment. Like Facebook, Groupon has seen "its share" of turmoil -- both literally and figuratively.
