Most of the Bitcoin addresses belong to that category, whether it's just a new user who's doing his first transactions on the Blockchain, or it is a veteran that want to preserve anonymity by spreading his shares to multiple new addresses. In those cases you should check carefully the entity behind such addresses before giving away your money.

Reusing Bitcoin addresses is a common habit that can reflect some experience of the Bitcoin account you are dealing with, it could be just a lazy person that doesn't care about anonymity or an automated Bitcoin software (Wallet) process that reuse addresses as a part of his natural workflow. Bitcoin addresses that were ruse only several time are very popular and don't give a lot of information.
