$5 Stocks Least Likely to Declare Bankruptcy

3. Rexahn Pharmaceuticals (RNN) is a biopharmaceutical company with a focus on developing treatments for cancer and central nervous system disorders. The shares spiked to a 52-week high of $3.68 in April before the company announced results of a phase II study of its experimental anti-depressant serdaxin. TheStreet's Adam Feuerstein raised red flags about Rexahn's disclosure of what the company called positive data, arguing that the company highlighted a subgroup analysis and was data-mining. In June, Rexahn completed a registered direct offering, with net proceeds of about $9.45 million going toward further development of the company's lead clinical programs, including the funding of Rexahn's Phase II clinical study program of serdaxin, zoraxel and archexin.

Altman Z-score: 69

Closing Price: $1.37 (Aug. 4)

2010 Total Return: 101.5%

Current Ratio: 9.10, which shows that Rexahn would easily be able to use its current assets to pay back its short-term liabilities if they came due.

Consensus: Only one research firm, Rodman & Renshaw, follows Rexahn's stock. It recommends that investors buy the shares. The firm's price target of $2 represents more than 50% upside from where the stock is trading.
