On CAPS, 52% of the 155 members who have rated MeetMe believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, AygHead, succinctly summed up the MeetMe bear case for our community:

This stock is surging because of speculation that this will be the next [Facebook]. In the meantime, it is burning cash at an extremely fast rate and is not profitable. Facebook will surely be pulling market share from these guys, or will buy them. No need for two players in the unimportant "post my pictures and tell my friends what [I'm] doing online to pass time" business.
