On CAPS, 14% of the 222 members who have rated POZEN believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

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

Pozen seems to have a neverending supply of optimistic investors who think that the next drug they get approved will be a commercial success. First Treximet and then Vimovo proved to be predictable failures, and I don't see any reason why PA32540 won't follow the same path. There may still some good times with FDA approval and bullish remarks from sell-side analysts, but ultimately I think we're looking at a retracement of the lows.
