Over on CAPS, 53 of the 193 All-Star members who have rated Rangold -- or 27% -- believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bears include SideShowMel0329 and BSHumphreyII.

Late last month, SideShowMel0329 questioned how precious Rangold really was:

I can't believe people STILL believe that gold is the perfect inflation hedge, because it's NOT. It's spotty at best. It's where speculators flock when there's fear in the markets, but once everything subsides, people will realize that it's vastly overbought and prices will come crashing down. This looks like 2000 all over again.

In a pitch from earlier this month, BSHumphreyII also seemed skeptical over gold's recent bubble-like price action:

I think we're seeing the same thing in gold right now at $900 that we saw with oil at $140 - way overbought by speculators chasing "hot" commodity stories. Gold is already extremely expensive compared to the S&P, by historical standards, and nothing short of a complete collapse of the US economy will make it move much higher.

Gold's in a bubble, and that bubble will burst within the year. EVERYONE is bullish on gold, which is always a good sign of a top in any market.
