In the following video, Fool contributor Matt Thalman discusses three stocks that may be facing some major headwinds in the coming quarters. All three stocks have performed very well over the past year or so, and while Matt is a shareholder of two of the three companies and believes in their long-term stories, he thinks the share prices may have gotten a little ahead of themselves.
