On CAPS, 31% of the 85 members who have rated RealD believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, KarmaInvestor, succinctly summed up the RealD bear case for our community:

[RealD] is a fad with a very finite shelf life. They have no new innovation. About 70 % of their gross comes from overseas and that will fade as well once [C]hina and [R]ussia move onto the next new thing. The company's own buy back is manipulating the stock price higher -- nothing justifies the high P/E. [W]ith this, losses, over priced officers and no dividends why would this company ever increase substantially. [IMAX] much better value.
