Falling knives are companies whose share prices have declined more than 59% over the last 52 weeks. Some investors purchase shares of these securities because they predict that the prices will bounce back enough to deliver large returns.
A share price flop could also be the beginning of financial issues which may seriously damage the portfolio of an investor if the company fails. However, if an investor chooses falling knives with a moderate to low financial burden, they can significantly lower the risk of loss.
Together with a moderate to low financial burden, these falling knives hold positive Wall Street sell-side analyst recommendation ratings, suggesting share prices are expected to start moving upwards.
