Groupon (GRPN -0.8%) prepares to release Q4 results after the closing bell, in its first report since going public in November. GRPN's Q3 nearly broke even after large losses in the five prior quarters; for Q4, analysts expect a slim loss. GRPN appears to have significantly cut marketing expenses to focus more on profitability, but subscriber growth rates have been falling.
