On CAPS, 71% of the 134 members who have rated BroadSoft believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.
Short term downthumb for a retrace after a 27% spike after earnings. Partially fueled by 40% short interest and decent sized institutional holdings. 20% swings have been a frequent norm for BroadSoft as it has become a traders/institutional toy with good news/bad news cycles. 7.3 P/B 6.8 P/S with erratic earnings and forecasts. Could go up further on a one-two punch, but playing for a share price decay and a close.
