On CAPS, 28% of the 310 members who have rated NetSuite believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bears, OklaBoston, highlighted some recent insider activity as a very clear reason to stay away: "Very recent open market selling by multiple directors practically screams 'top' to me. And confirms more fundamental indicators that this is overpriced."
