Pier One (PIR): I removed Pier One from the list in 2010. That stock has jumped over 43% in the year since its reprieve.Class of 2007 Palm: Palm is now part of Hewlett-Packard (HPQ). I'll say more on the acquirer later on. Circuit City: Bankrupt. Charter Communications (CHTR): Charter filed for Bankruptcy in March 2009 and emerged from bankruptcy in November 2009. It's now back in operation as a public company, but since it is not the old Charter Communications, it's longer on this list. It's also one of the top holdings of George Soros. Six Flags (SIX): Six Flags filed for bankruptcy in June 2009 and emerged from bankruptcy in April 2010 and is now bank in operation as a public company. Again, it's not the old Six Flags, so it's no longer on the list. Washington Mutual: WaMu was declared insolvent and seized by the FDIC in 2008. Washington Mutual is now a part of JPMorgan (JPM), which is one of the world's premier financial institutions under the stewardship of Jamie Dimon.

General Motors (GM): GM filed for Bankruptcy in June 2009, and a new entity was formed with the backing of the U.S. Treasury. It's now back in operation as a public company as a result of its IPO in November of 2010. Since it is not the old General Motors, it is longer on this list.
