On CAPS, 26% of the 97 members who have rated Och-Ziff believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star MegaShort, explained why Och-Ziff looked overvalued:

When valuing asset managers, I take tangible book value (TBV) and add a percentage of assets under management (AUM).

The percent of AUM varies depending on the quality of the business (reflected in fees and growth). A great alternative asset manager might be worth 5% of AUM, a mediocre alternative might be worth 3%, a great mutual fund manager 2%, a mediocre mutual fund manager 1%.

[Och-Ziff's] TBV is -$250M and AUM is $34.6B. To justify the market cap, the percent of AUM needs to be 12.3%. The valuation appears quite unreasonable.
