Angie’s List, Inc. (ANGI)
Angie’s List, Inc. (ANGI) lands on our list of stocks to short because it just isn’t anything special.
Angie’s List doesn’t solve a problem. It’s basically Yelp (YELP) for professional services, except you have to pay for access. I don’t see the sustainable model, here.
ANGI consistently loses money and was cash flow negative up until last year, when it just barely made a blip on the positive side. Even at $11.64, it trades with an infinite P/E — because there are no earnings. I don’t see how ANGI stock goes anywhere, and I would call it a stock to short with a target of $5.
