On the day Groupon reported its most recent earnings, the stock spiked by 20% out of nowhere.Then after the market closed Groupon’s earnings were a blowout, soundly beating Wall Street’s expectations.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or Finra, is investigating to find out, the Wall Street Journal reports.
