The 12 Most-Hated Stocks on Wall Street

Wall Street research analysts must be the most optimistic people on earth. They give "buy" ratings to more than half of public companies, even during the worst bear markets. They don't even give stocks a "hold" rating unless the company has made major missteps.

"Sell" ratings are rare and are only given when the sustainability of a company's business model is in serious question. When Wall Street analysts across multiple brokerages all start downgrading a stock, you know something is seriously wrong.

MarketBeat has compiled an exclusive list of the 12 most downgraded stocks on Wall Street right now. If any of these companies are lurking around in your portfolio, you will want to ask yourself "Why?". Wall Street analysts are abandoning these companies in droves. They are true "strong sell" stocks.
