Loser: MeetMe

MeetMe185YTD Return: -55%

MeetMe (MEET) is a social network that allows you to meet new people through social games and apps.

That broadly makes it not altogether much different than Facebook (FB) — perhaps a decent reason investors haven’t been too interested in its stock.

MeetMe’s monetization has been lackluster; in the latest quarter, revenues fell from $10.4 million to $7.8 million, though mobile revenues did spike by 150% to $1.9 million. However, it did succeed in racking up losses, to the tune of $7.3 million, up from $1.9 million in the year-ago period.

That performance has helped fuel a more-than-halving of MEET shares in 2013.
