Over on CAPS, fully 634 of the 2,289 members who have rated Crocs -- some 28% -- believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bears include All-Star PeteZar, who is ranked in the top 15% of our community, and TheGouch23.

Just last week, PeteZar singled out Crocs as one crock-of-a-stock: "The [Crocs] trend has been dead for a while. The demand for this product is tiny, if not nonexistent. The stock price will swing with the market, but it will under perform in the long term."

In a pitch from two weeks earlier, TheGouch23 poked holes in Crocs:

Going under and fast unless they come up with a new trick. One trick pony has run the course and wants to be put out to pasture. Durable novelty shoes being indestructible leaves no room for repeat business! While the name means something, the product does not, and new efforts to expand their offerings have fallen flat badly. As the company's earnings dry up, its stock will ultimately be worthless. Too bad. They had a good idea originally and ran with it, but they never thought about what came next, and now it's too late.
