I am new to investing in stocks and wanted to know the following:
What is the school of thought behind buying stock in companies who are re-organizing with bankruptcy?
As I see it, if a company has gone bankrupt to protect itself and re-organize, then shouldn't its stock rebound sometime in the future? I have seen some companies whose stock has taken a terrible drop. I still think they could be revived and be a successful company again in the future and provide for some very nice gains in the stock price.

So I am asking what is the general thought on investing in these bankrupt companies? Also, am I even able to buy stock in them once they have the Q put at the end of their stockname?

Thanks,

Yofreetime
