Groupon (GRPN +11.1%) adds to this morning's gains after CEO/maitre d' Andrew Mason makes a CNBC appearance to discuss his company's card reader launch. "We're more than just a coupon company," Mason asserts, while adding Groupon isn't focused on near-term profits as much as growth for its reader. This seems a good time to point out 20.3% of Groupon's float was shorted as of Aug. 31.
