On CAPS, 54% of the 131 members who have rated Repros believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star TerryHogan, succinctly summed up the Repros bear case for our community:

They're burning through cash like a former child-star on a [V]egas bender, and they're handing out shares like they're breath mints at a halitosis convention. They have no revenues to speak of (in fact they don't have any revenue at all). And while the latest announcement about their clinical trial isn't exactly a nail in the coffin, it could be a sign of greater malfeasance.
