March Recommendation

This value stock became a Wall Street darling in the late-1990s, trading as high as 56 in early 2000. Over the following decade, it gradually fell behind and, by 2012, its stock had dropped below 3. Then in 2013 and early 2014, the company transformed itself once again by selling its certain operations and buying out its partner's interest in a network equipment joint venture. The company now has three main lines of business, and we believe that profits are on the rebound. On the financial side, this telecom large cap has several things going for it.

We believe this mid-cap represents a good way for turnaround investors to lock in stock profit from an anticipated uptick in corporate restructurings.

Investing in Post-Bankruptcy Stocks

Post-bankruptcy stocks represent an interesting investing sector because they operate in such an inefficient niche and often move independent of the overall market. Even though many companies take advantage of the Chapter 11 process to reshape their businesses and balance sheets to emerge as a stronger and more competitive entity, investors are often biased against post-bankruptcy situations because of their troubled past.   Learn more.
