While one can never really predict that a downtrodden stock will come right back in only a year’s time, there’s no doubt that these stocks have the backing of analysts and associated brokers at their firms. So if you are looking for a bounce-back play and are interested in any of the names on this list, do your own research to form an opinion about how well a company might perform over the next five to 10 years.
