On CAPS, 91% of the 293 members who have rated Angie's List believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.
I've got one thing to say about this company: Yikes! I'm saying it'll underperform in the next five plus years, but I'm not sure it'll be around that long. When I see "N/A" for an interest coverage ratio, I get a little worried. When I see that a company's net profits are losses and getting worse every year, I get worried. When I see that someone is trying to make money off of something offered by better sites for free. I panic.
