On CAPS, 46% of the 52 All-Star members who have rated Cell Therapeutics believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, zzlangerhans, tapped the stock's recent surge as particularly unsustainable:

Somehow, Cell Therapeutics has always had their coterie of rabid adherents despite the absolutely laughable loss of shareholder value over the last decade. It's like no one ever looks at the long-term price chart before buying this stock. CEO Jim Bianco continues to follow his pattern of purchasing cheap castoffs from other biotechs in order to prolong the life of his company and justify the endless cycle of capital raises and reverse splits he's become famous for. It's painful to even spend the time to review the pipeline because it's so obvious that no success will ever come from this company. Next disappointment is likely to be crappy revenues from Pixuvri in Europe.
