These are the companies that might go bankrupt in 2014, the reason they are predicted to go under is due to tough competition from other companies. Why discuss the companies that are listed below? Because many people might want to invest in them, without knowing the truth behind the company’s numbers. The stock might be appealing to some due to the low price, but would you really want to put money into a sinking ship? (No) What really caused these companies to begin spiraling out of control and to ultimately be very close to bankruptcy? From my point of view, I would have to say that one of the reasons is these companies did not change enough under the current market space. Staying stagnant or comfortable is a sure fire way to bury yourself in any business environment.
