Anyone know anything about companies in chapter 11, and maybe how to profit off of them? It's my understanding that they could reorganize and perhaps, one day, become profitable again.

If you do have some insight in this area, maybe you could provide a well known example of a company that has made a turn around.

I just think it might be a nice little lottery pick if it's the case. Drop a few bucks and sit on it for a decade or whatever.

A lot of companies come out of Chapter 11 to become profitable. Problem is, all previous shareholders get wiped out. All of the airlines (I may be exaggerating) have filed for BK at one point or another. Basically common shareholders lose their money and they start over, getting money from new investors.

you can often play bounces on "Q" stocks after the initial announcement/filing, liek LEHMQ was like .05 the other day, and hit .25 today, but you wouldn't want to hold for long, as they usually come right back down.

Going back to your original question...

If you see a Q start to run? It's OK to throw date-money at it...Could be a 20-bagger.

Myself, I'd bail long before that, cuz when it tanks it will be quick, and there's no recovery for most Qs.

No offense but you seem to not have a understanding of the basics of trading and that is why you should steer clear of such risky things as this one you asked about. You should read more on trading imo if you have to ask this question.

It is not a dumb question at all, you Can make good money on bankrupt companies.

Example GMGMQ in it 3 times for over 20% gain or more. How much money will the Gov throw at it now that it is owned by BO?
DPHIQ in it over 20 times for 18% or more.
This should be coming out of it soon.
IDARQ 12 trades at 13% or more.
RHDC 10 trades at 15% or more.

You have to get in and get out fast... I will not hold them for more than a couple of hours (most of the time)

These do much better than micro penny stocks (IMO) for example I have ETNL keep waiting/praying that it will go to OTCBB soon so I recover some of it. Made one bad choice, held it to long and got hammered....

When you are gambling with these types of stocks Timing is everything....

I don't need no stinking Broker to loose my money.
