I have some interest in buying the reorganized common stock of companies emerging from bankruptcy. Are there any pitfalls for the unwary here?

Just to be clear: I am not interested in the old common stock that has become essentially worthless; I am interested in the new stock that the bankrupt company's creditors end up holding. Essentially, this is betting on a turnaround play.
