On CAPS, 69% of the 139 members who have rated BroadVision believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.
Look its 1999 all over again? For those of you who don't recall, Broadvision went down in a fiery heap of disaster when the Internet bubble burst, but prior to that it traded very similarly to how it's trading now. What hasn't changed is BroadVision's consistency to lose money. Add those two together and there's little doubt in my mind this 300% share price jump will not hold the test of time.
