On CAPS, 25% of the 87 members who have rated Oncolytics believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star zzlangerhans, tapped the stock's recent bounce as particularly unsustainable:

I'm fairly confident that Reolysin is inactive, so I'll take any excuse to red thumb Oncolytics until it eventually goes to zero. I missed the lion's share of the decline but there's been no good news to explain the recent change in momentum. I suspect a fresh round of dilution will come before any significant data release from ongoing Reolysin trials.
