Monster Worldwide's (MWW) stock is still suffering from the recession blues, despite a slowly recovering job market.
Shares of the job recruiting site plunged 25% in January, or a quarter of their value, after the company reported lackluster fourth-quarter profit and sales. The bigger disappointment was Monster's gloomy outlook, with forecasts that were well below Wall Street's expectations.
Though the company delivered a better-than-expected performance for the first quarter in April, its stock price has yet to fully recover.
The stock's underperformance hasn't made it cheap. Monster's shares are going for more than 31 times the current year's earnings estimates.
