Coupons.com was a darling on the day of its IPO earlier this year, but things haven't gone well since, and it's Thursday's Chart of the Day. The startup has big backing from a number of top venture capital firms, but when a big name goes public that can turn into a liability -- Coupons.com was downgraded ahead of its IPO share lockup expiration by one analyst who says the company's stock could fall next. When RetailMeNot, a recent comp, hit its lockup, shares hit the market, and the stock fell. Coupons.com has already drawn comparisons to Groupon, but with some key metrics rising, it may yet survive the bear calls.
