Hickey and Walters (Bespoke) submit: One commenter from our most loved stocks post asked for a list of the most hated stocks. Below we highlight the stocks in the S&P 500 that have at least 25% "Sell" ratings by Wall Street analysts.
Overall, there aren't nearly as many "Sell" ratings as there are "Buy" ratings. The stock with the highest percentage of "Sell" ratings is Eastman Kodak (EK) at 56%.
Other notables on this list that aren't surprising given their negative public sentiment are THC, GM, LEN, BOL, RSH, F, LXK and CFC. The good thing about companies with negative analyst sentiment is that any hint of positive news usually means a strong up move in the stock.
