Over on CAPS, fully 111 of the 538 members who have rated Deckers -- some 20% -- believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bears include jerseytix and celticspirit.

Only two days ago, jerseytix forecasted a somewhat UGG-ly return for the stock's supporters:

Man, the numbers look great but they have so heavily dependent on Uggs, which are easily duplicable, and any exposure to consumer goods looks troubling for the next 12 months. This stock price depends on forward growth for several years and that's asking a lot from a company with so many eggs in so few baskets.

In an earlier pitch, celticspirit echoes that same bearish sentiment:

I have to agree with those that see this as the next Crocs (NASDAQ:CROX). The shares are not seriously overvalued based on current performance but the fashion will fade. Again there are copycats out there and nothing really different about the product except for its price. Initially, my 15 year old daughter wanted a pair but when she had to use her own money she went for a look a like.
