On CAPS, 78% of the 102 members who have rated Caesars believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, Allstar13913, tapped the stock's recent surge as short-lived:

It's on its way back down after a bubble pop/ short run on the stock from the New Jersey gaming law .

Caesar's currently has high debt levels and no clear way to pay off its debt. As a regional casino operator, it has no footprint in Asia and an inability to attract big customers. ...

This was a horrible IPO that was foisted on the investing public.
