Angie’s List feeling the wrath of Liberalism

 

As Reported by Time:

Even as the paid-membership review service Angie’s List has announced major plans for expansion and increased hiring, investors are bailing on the company.

Last week, the stock price of Angie’s List dropped more than 5%, after a decline of as much as 20% the week prior. Overall, the price of Angie’s List stock is hovering near its 52-week low, and it has fallen nearly 60% over the past 12 months.

The recent plunge stemmed largely from the release of disappointing third-quarter results. Even as the company decreased marketing expenses by 20% and increased membership revenue by 7%, a slowdown in paid memberships and the failure to meet profit revenue expectations have apparently spooked investors.

Angie’s List watchers have been on a particularly wild rollercoaster ride of late. Roughly one month ago, a report surfaced indicating that the company had hired investment bankers to explore the possibility of putting Angie’s List up for sale. Shares of the stock rose more than 20% on the news but were still down more than 50% compared to a year ago.
