Sometimes a company, for whatever reason, just can't get it together.
Maybe it has a bad CEO, or a board that doesn't "get" accountability. Maybe it's doing business in a bad market, or it got beaten in the innovation stakes. Perhaps it's bad luck.
Whatever the reason, the pattern is familiar: The stock price languishes in the basement, headlines run negative, executives get replaced like lightbulbs, and lawsuits fly freely.
That's a pity, because some of these companies boast the infrastructure and expertise that, under the right leadership, could transform them into a gold mine – a true "turnaround."
Some household names that today are worth trillions of dollars combined are onetime turnaround stories: Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Marvel Comics, Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX), Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) – all of them were at one point on "death watch."
Reversing such a company's failing fortunes can require deep shakeups, drastic moves, and immense changes…
Fortunately, the twilight end of cannabis prohibition here in the United States provides a business climate where that kind of creative destruction can happen more easily than it might otherwise.
Promising changes are underway at a few companies listed in our proprietary database right now, but one in particular deserves your hard-earned capital – because it has the real potential to return that capital in multiples.
