Naked Brand Foods Group (NASDAQ:NAKD) stock has been terrible, there's no other way to put it. NAKD stock is down 98.5% over the past year and 99.8% over the past two years. It has led to one of the worst charts I have ever seen.Source: Shutterstock The apparel company has gone through what I call "reverse split hell," essentially doing everything it can to keep its stock price above water and avoid being delisted from the stock exchange.Currently (and perhaps surprisingly), shares are still above $1, although that's the point of a reverse split.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsNAKD stock underwent a 1-for-40 split in August 2015, a 1-for-5 split in June 2018, a whopping 1-for-100 split in December 2019. It's whittled the market cap down to less than $5 million as NAKD stock falls further and further off the radar. * The 7 Stocks That Cautious Investors Should Sell Now So what should investors do with the stock? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. They should leave it be and let it serve as a lesson for what happens when investors let losses run unchecked. NAKD Stock ChartSource: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comA look at the chart shows just what I'm talking about. Is this not one of the worst charts you've ever seen?On a split-adjusted basis, the stock peaked at more than $1,100 per share and is now trading for close to $1. When you have the kind of action, the equivalent of a $100 stock falling to about 14 cents, it's the red flag of red flags.Some penny stock investors may be tempted to buy shares at $1.20 and flip it at $1.50. Or double their money on a possible rally to $2-plus. I can't say that action is impossible, but I sure wouldn't put my hard-earned money on it happening.These trades are erratic and volatile, with little predictability. It's also a gigantic red flag regarding the fundamentals, meaning a company with solid fundamentals would not have a chart like this.Dabbling with a name like NAKD is not investing or trading in my mind. It's a risky gamble. It ignores both the technical and fundamental discipline that traders and investors need to maintain in order to enter favorable setups. It's not that the stock can't double from this level, it's that the current setup does not suggest a position is a good idea. Bottom Line on Naked BrandsRevenue continues to sink with first-half sales falling more than 25%, while losses continue to erode the financials. As one might expect, the balance sheet is a disaster too.Current liabilities are nearly triple current assets, while total assets barely edge total liabilities. The former suggests the company will have trouble meeting its short-term obligations, while the latter suggests its long-term obligations will be hard to meet without an improvement in cash flow or operating income. Clearly that's not happening anytime soon.While Naked Brands announced a divestiture this week, it feels like too little too late. At least when it comes to investing in the common stock.So what should investors do? If you're not already holding a position, I would consider Naked Brands a learning opportunity; and one that can hopefully teach investors the dangers of holding onto a loser for too long before they actually experience it for themselves.On Wednesday, NAKD stock made a new all-time low. Literally any investor who has bought the stock and held until Jan. 22 has lost money. Most would have lost nearly every cent invested.Whether you are a fundamental investor, a technical trader or a blend of both, Naked Brand highlights why stop losses are not just important, but vital. Imagine owning the stock with a 20% stop loss, and while painful to take, avoiding a total wipeout in the name. I wouldn't view that as a 20% loss, I'd view it as saving 80%.There are two ways to learn: from others' mistakes or your own. The former is much less painful.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

Penny stocks are almost always high-risk, high-reward investments. Some of them are worth buying because they have visible and realistic pathways to at least tripling.Source: Tinseltown / Shutterstock.com That's why I've recommended some penny stocks before, like struggling department store operator Stage Stores (NYSE:SSI), Chinese premium electric vehicle maker NIO (NYSE:NIO), and hydrogen fuel cell maker Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG); all three of those penny stocks are up several times from their 2019 lows.But most penny stocks aren't worth investors' time or money because they don't have visible or realistic pathways to escaping penny-stock status. One such penny stock is Naked Brands (NASDAQ:NAKD), a largely irrelevant, unprofitable, and indebted intimate apparel company. NAKD stock price has dropped from a split-adjusted price tag of over $80 a year ago to under $2 today.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsNAKD stock will continue to persistently fall for the foreseeable future because it lacks a clear and convincing pathway to profitability, making the debt load on its balance sheet seem like a ticking time bomb that will ultimately sink NAKD's ship.In other words, there's no reason to buy NAKD stock at this point. Zero is ultimately where this stock will go. Don't try to catch this falling knife on its way to worthlessness. * 8 of the Strangest Stocks Worth Your Time Naked Brands Has ProblemsThere are three big problems with Naked Brands. The first can be summed up succinctly: no one wants to buy what Naked Brands is selling.Naked Brands owns a portfolio of men's and women's intimate apparel brands, including various brands from Heidi Klum, Hickory, Bendon, and others. These brands are largely irrelevant in a a very crowded intimates marketplace that is dominated by L Brands (NYSE:LB), American Eagle (NYSE:AEO), Hanesbrands (NYSE:HBI), and many, many more.During Naked's fiscal 2019, its sales dropped 15% year-over-year, as U.S. retail sales were growing at a steady 3%-4% clip. Through the first half of Naked's FY20, the U.S. retail sales market has continued to grow at a steady 3%-4% clip. At the same time, Naked's sales have continued to plunge, dropping more than 25% year-over-year.In other words, the writing is on the wall for NAKD. No one wants to wear Hickory underwear or Bendon underwear. Considering how small these brands are -- Naked's sales were just $77 million last year -- and also considering how competitive the intimates marketplace is, it is very unlikely that trends will change in favor of NAKD anytime soon.So for the foreseeable future, demand headwinds will continue to weigh on Naked's sales growth. Profits Aren't ComingThe second and third problems with NAKD stock can also be summed up succinctly: Naked Brands won't strike a profit anytime soon, and because of that, the company's high debt will sink NAKD stock.Naked Brands won't be profitable anytime soon. Just look at the numbers. Its revenue is between $60 million and $80 million, with 30% to 35% gross margins, and an annual operating expense rate of about $50 million to $60 million. That combination won't produce profits.In order to become profitable, Naked Brands has to either: 1) essentially double its revenues to $150 million to offset its $50 million in annual operating spending and do so without upping its other expenses, or 2) cut its annual operating spending rate by more than half without losing any revenue.Neither of those things is going to happen. NAKD's sales won't turn the corner because of demand and competition issues. Its expenses won't drop because its management has been unable to cut expenses for several years, and any meaningful cost-cutting today would be accompanied by further sales erosion.As a result, Naked Brands will forever remain unprofitable.That puts tremendous pressure on the company's balance sheet, which features a lot of debt and little cash. Ultimately, if Naked Brands cannot become profitable, debt will sink NAJD, and NAKD stock will drop to zero. The Bottom Line on NAKD StockSome high-risk, high-reward penny stocks are worth buying. NAKD stock is not one of them. The shares of this largely irrelevant, unprofitable, and heavily indebted intimate apparel company aren't worth buying until its management can show that there is a clear and convincing pathway towards profitability and sales stabilization.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long NIO and PLUG.
