On CAPS, 16% of the All-Star members who have rated Exact Sciences believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, zzlangerhans, touched on the stock's seemingly unsustainable valuation:

A [$600M] market cap is way too much for unconvincing sensitivity and specificity data that don't provide a convincing basis for widespread adoption of the Cologuard test. Exact is once again a trader's football and I expect the stock to move with the winds until a concrete catalyst emerges.
