Groupon’s Stock Is On Fire And No One Knows Why (GRPN)

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/groupon-stock-2012-12

Groupon is on tear today for some reason.

The stock was up as much as 24%, and we’re not sure why.

The only thing we can think of is that there’s new news about CEO Andrew Mason, but we haven’t heard anything.

Source: https://intelligence.businessinsider.com/welcome

Mobile continues to drive Pandora’s ad business.

Mobile ad revenues for its fiscal third quarter were $66 million, up from an estimated $53 million a quarter prior. Mobile accounted for 62 percent of total ad revenues, compared to 59 percent in the second quarter. 

Overall mobile revenues, including subscriptions, increased $15 million in the quarter to $74 million.

Pandora is a prime example of how mobile is transforming what were once Web-based companies. With 77 percent of usage now coming from mobile— not to mention a majority of revenues— Pandora is essentially a mobile company.

More Than 70 Percent Of App Sessions Are Outside Of The U.S.

Source: https://intelligence.businessinsider.com/welcome

Mobile apps are no longer just for an American audience.

According to Flurry, the U.S. share of Android and iOS app sessions shrank a remarkable 19 percentage points in the past year. U.S.-based sessions now account for less than one-third of the total. The next nine largest markets soaked up much of the usage, increasing their share 12 percentage points to 39 percent of app sessions.

While the U.S. is still the most profitable market for app makers, developers need to start turning their eyes toward the global market, where much of the growth in mobile apps will occur as smartphone penetration slows in the U.S. and other early adopter markets.

Pay TV May Not Be Dead, But It’s Dead In The Water

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-pay-net-additions-2012-11

Some people think the pay TV business is on its deathbed. These numbers from Bernstein Research’s Craig Moffett, via Peter Kafka, don’t hurt that argument.

As you can see, subscriber growth has been just about flat for the last two years. This is good news because it means people aren’t ditching pay TV in droves. But it’s bad news because it means the industry is stuck.
