On CAPS, 11% of the 192 members who have rated Progenics believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star zzlangerhans, succinctly summed up the bear case for our community:

Right now, I'm not seeing anything that makes Progenics at a cap of [$220M] more valuable than it was last October with a cap of [$110M] (or November with a cap of [$60M]). The purchase of Molecular Insight for 5.6M shares of common stock is a particular headscratcher. ... No one wanted them then, so why does Progenics want them now? It seems they're planning to unlock hidden value by using Molecular Insight's technology to create a PSMA-based prostate cancer diagnostic, but I have to say that any hidden value in Molecular Insight is extremely well hidden.

A phase II trial of PSMA cancer vaccine won't even complete enrollment until the end of the year, so I don't see any catalysts coming from that glacially progressing program this year. Relistor royalty revenues will continue to suck. As always, it's anyone's guess what will happen to Progenics' share price in the short term, but anyone foolish enough to be long at these levels needs to remember that the share price could just as easily be [$1] as [$5].
