On CAPS, 28% of the 572 members who have rated Ruckus believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star TMFBlacknGold, wrote that the Ruckus bear case all boiled down to price:

I'm uncomfortable with the premium investors must pay to tap into this company's growth. Yes, it is growing. Yes, it is newly profitable. However, EPS drops precipitously if you discount the outlier second quarter. Without the monstrous 2Q12 Ruckus would have an EPS of around $0.10 -- almost 1/3 of the current figure.

That being said, the company does have an awesome website and a growing niche. I just wouldn't buy into it near its current $1.7 billion market cap.
