NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The stock-market slump that pushed the Dow below 10,000 points this week threatens to get the following eight small companies booted from trading on the Nasdaq. All received notice this month that they're in violation of a rule that requires them to trade above $1 a share. They now have less than six months to regain compliance.

Anchor BanCorp Wisconsin ( ABCW)

Closing Price: 47 cents (June 29)

Six-Month Stock Performance: -28.8%

Received Nasdaq Notice: June 18

Management's Expected Action: The savings and loan has until Dec. 15 to regain compliance with the bid price requirement. Anchor Bancorp Wisconsin said it is "currently evaluating its alternatives to resolve the listing deficiency." The struggling company has bigger problems, though. According to data from SNL Financial, Anchor Bancorp Wisconsin is one of 91 banks and thrifts that missed a dividend payment on preferred stock issued as part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP. The second largest institution on the list, Anchor Bancorp Wisconsin has now missed five consecutive TARP dividend payments. Failure to pay a sixth triggers the Treasury's right to elect two directors to the bank's board.

Dynatronics ( DYNT)

Closing Price: 71 cents (June 29)

Six-Month Stock Performance: -21.1%

Received Nasdaq Notice: June 16

Management's Expected Action: The medicine and aesthetic products maker has until Dec. 13 to regain compliance with the Nasdaq's listing rule, and Dynatronics' management says it is confident the company can meet the minimum bid requirement. "Despite our positive growth in sales and profits over the past six quarters, we have been negatively affected by the recent volatility in the stock market," Dynatronics Chairmain and President Kelvyn Cullimore said in a recent statement. "While there is little we can do about market volatility, we can focus our efforts on the things we can control, such as accelerating the rate of improvement in operations and profitability."

Insmed ( INSM)

Closing Price: 66.3 cents (June 29)

Six-Month Stock Performance: -17.2%

Received Nasdaq Notice: June 18

Management's Expected Action: Insmed has been given until Dec. 15 to get its stock trading above $1 again. The biopharmaceutical company said it is "considering appropriate business measures to address compliance with the continued listing standards." This isn't the first time Insmed has faced a possible delisting by the exchange. The company was in the same situation in 2008 before the Nasdaq suspended the bid price requirement due to the financial crisis. After the rule was reinstituted last year, Insmed was among the first to receive a notice letter in September 2009 before the shares climbed above $1 in March.

Nile Therapeutics ( NLTX)

Closing Price: 32.7 cents (June 29)

Six-Month Stock Performance: -74.9%

Received Nasdaq Notice: June 1

Management's Expected Action: The biopharmaceutical company has until Nov. 29 to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. Nile Therapeutics said it "intends to actively monitor the bid price" but "has not yet determined to take any other action in response to the notice." The stock had traded above $1 until late April, when Nile Therapeutics priced a public offering of 6.5 million units at 70 cents per unit. Each unit consisted of one share of Nile common stock and 0.30 warrant to purchase common stock. Proceeds from the offering will be used to fund the expansion of its ongoing Phase II clinical trial of CD-NP in acute heart failure patients, the company said. The stock slumped after the offering announcement and has yet to recover.

Oxigene ( OXGN)

Closing Price: 37 cents (June 29)

Six-Month Stock Performance: -67.8%

Received Nasdaq Notice: June 17

Management's Expected Action: The biopharmaceutical company has until Dec. 14 to regain compliance, which is a tough task as the stock has dropped from a 52-week high of $2.37 all the way to a 52-week low, where it currently rests. Supply-side economist Arthur Laffer resigned from the company's board in March, when the stock still traded above $1. Oxigene shares plunged in early June after the company presented data on clinical studies at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting. Oxigene said it will "consider various options available to the company if its common stock does not trade at a level that is likely to regain compliance," but didn't offer any specific plans.

TeamStaff ( TSTF)

Closing Price: 50 cents (June 29)

Six-Month Stock Performance: -32.9%

Received Nasdaq Notice: June 1

Management's Expected Action: The Nasdaq has provided the staffing services company with 180 calendar days, or until Nov. 29, to regain compliance with the bid price rule. TeamStaff said it is "considering alternatives to address compliance with the continued listing standards" but didn't mention the options it was looking at. Shares of TeamStaff traded near $2 in the past 12 months, but now sit at a 52-week low. In November, the stock listing was transferred to the Nasdaq Capital Market from the Nasdaq Global Market after TeamStaff failed to maintain a minimum market value of $5 million, as required by the exchange. This came as then-CEO Rick Filippelli announced his resignation from TeamStaff, citing "the company's strategic shift in its current business plan."

TerreStar ( TSTR)

Closing Price: 47 cents (June 29)

Six-Month Stock Performance: -52.5%

Received Nasdaq Notice: June 3

Management's Expected Action: The mobile-communications company has until Nov. 30 to regain compliance with the Nasdaq's minimum bid price rule. TerreStar did not say what actions it is considering. In March, TerreStar received a similar notice from the Nasdaq for failing to meet the minimum bid price requirement before regaining compliance in April. The stock traded at a 52-week high of $2.95 in September after TerreStar said it will combine AT&T's ( T) wireless connectivity with the ability to use a satellite network as back up throughout the U.S. The stock received another boost in January after the Federal Communications Commission granted a TerreStar subsidiary the authority to integrate terrestrial use of TerreStar's 20 MHz S Band spectrum into its next-generation mobile wireless network.

USA Technologies ( USAT)

Closing Price: 49 cents (June 29)

Six-Month Stock Performance: -69%

Received Nasdaq Notice: June 14

Management's Expected Action: The point-of-sale technology services provider has until Dec. 13 to satisfy the Nasdaq's minimum bid price requirement. USA Technologies did not say how it will attempt to satisfy the rule, although it noted that it could apply to transfer the listing of its securities to the Nasdaq Capital Market or could appeal the exchange's listing determination. Shares of USA Technologies traded above $3 exactly one year ago and traded near $2 until May, when the company announced a $3 million public offering. USA Technologies offered common stock and warrants at an offering price of 90 cents each. In addition to the public offering, the company announced a subscription rights offering that allowed stockholder to purchase up to an aggregate of $7.52 million of new shares of common stock and related warrants.
