Investors love a turnaround play, and Wall Street is littered with stories of fortunes made betting on troubled companies.In the 1960s, American Express (AXP) was rumored to be near bankruptcy when Warren Buffett famously entered what is now one of his favorite Berkshire Hathaway positions. Apple (AAPL), which became the first U.S. company to hit $1 trillion in market value, absorbed more than a decade of losses during the 1980s and '90s before Steve Jobs helped turn the company around - aided by a $150 million investment from Microsoft (MSFT).But while every beat-up stock is a potential turnaround play, not every company achieves that potential. And losses can mount quickly for a stock that's already up against the ropes. So while you might be tempted to dabble in a potential comeback story or two, beware of some of the most common traps that end in disaster.Sometimes the issue is too much debt; rising interest costs and balloon payments can turn minor business setbacks into major liquidity challenges. Other times, once-powerful consumer brands are brought to their knees by management that's too slow to adapt to evolving consumer tastes.Certain areas of the market can be particularly prone to disasters. Start-up biotech stocks are risky because they're racing against the clock to bring new drugs to market before their cash runs out. Disappointing clinical trial result, in these cases, can cut a stock's value in half (or worse) within days. Chinese stocks are problematic, too, because of sometimes poor visibility and weak corporate governance.Here are 13 stocks to sell if you own them, or avoid if you're on the hunt for the next turnaround story. The companies themselves aren't necessarily an extinction threat, but for varying reasons, they're all on the brink of delivering more disastrous returns.

Decades of innovations from the study of outer space have come down to Earth, into store aisles, smartphones and American households. On July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon declaring, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” The NASA program that got Armstrong there pushed forward technology on rockets and satellites — laying the groundwork for the GPS navigation systems millions of people now use in their smartphones.

Shares of Nautilus Inc. plunged Tuesday toward a more-than six-year low, after the exercise equipment maker reported disappointing first-quarter results, and indicated the problems leading to weak sales of its Bowflex Max Trainer products aren’t expected to be fixed until the fall.
Shares of Nautilus Inc. tumbled 17% toward a six-year low in morning trade, after the exercise equipment maker reported a wider-than-expected first-quarter loss and sales that fell more than forecast, amid continued weakness in the direct sales segment. The company said late Monday that it swung to a net loss of $8.6 million, or 29 cents a share, from a profit of $8.1 million, or 26 cents a share, compared with the FactSet loss consensus of 3 cents a share. Sales fell 26.5% to $84.4 million, below expectations of $92.4 million, as direct segment sales declined 34.4%, primarily reflecting a drop in Bowflex Max Trainer sales. Analyst Michael Swartz at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey slashed his stock price target to $5 from $7, and kept his rating at hold. "With little visibility into if/when [Nautilus] can return to profitable growth in its key direct business, we prefer to remain on the sidelines," Swartz wrote in a note to clients. The stock, on track for the lowest close since January 2013, has plummeted 60% year to date while the S&P 500 has gained 16%.
