Editor's note: "Bricks and Mortar" is a series of columns written by real estate reporter Nicholas Yulico meant to help TheStreet.com readers generate real estate and gaming-related stock ideas.Often, beaten-down stocks are in the garbage bin for a reason. They're not value stocks, but instead just bad stocks, with negative stories that may only get worse. Casino operator Trump Entertainment ( TRMP) and construction-management firm Home Solutions of America ( HSOA) fall into this camp, and I continue to expect these stocks to disappoint investors in coming months. Both companies, which I've flagged as poor stock picks for several months now in the Bricks and Mortar mock portfolio, reported earnings this week. Of the two, Trump is the slightly prettier story, while Home Solutions continues to master the art of limited disclosure.
