Will These 3-Falling Knives Rebound?

Falling knives are companies whose share prices have declined more than 59% over the last 12 months. Investments in these securities are based on expectations of huge rewards following the share price rebound.

Investors are also aware that more than 59% drop in the share price could indicate financial distress, so their portfolio could be damaged if the company fails.

If investors pick shares of falling knives with moderate to low financial burden, they can meaningfully reduce the risk of loss.

Along with a moderate to low debt-to-equity ratio, the following securities have a positive recommendation rating ranging between hold and overweight. The overweight rating means that the stock is foreseen to outperform either its industry or the entire market.
