Stamps.com didn't have enough postage to send its shares higher, today the stock is down 10.96% at $24.36. The online stamp provider saw its shares crash after its website had technical difficulties. Stamps.com's site was down for 4 days in November due to a software upgrade that didn't work and has since had two additional outages. The company does not need serious IT issues right now, especially with holidays around the corner. Investment firm, Craig-Hallum maintains a buy rating on Stamps.com but noted that it was using short-term caution when dealing with the stock. Stamps.com is trading around the middle of its 52-week range.
