On CAPS, 40% of the 1,748 members who have rated Facebook believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, OklaBoston, kindly updated our community on the Facebook bear case:

Ended a red thumb on this a while ago when I thought it had bottomed. It's gone into another downtrend since then, insiders have been selling, and the valuation numbers are still absurd. So I'm resurrecting a pick I'm not sure I should ever have ended.
