This bull market is getting awfully long in the tooth. Stocks haven’t recorded a 20% drop since March 9, 2009 – the beginning of the recovery from the Great Recession. At 3,444 days at last count, this bull market is on pace to set the all-time record on Aug. 22, surpassing the 3,452-day rally between Oct. 11, 1990.

Nothing lasts forever, of course, and that will be true of the current bull market at some point. “Since we are back close to the highs for the S&P 500, risks of a pullback have certainly risen,” Wall Street veteran Bill Stone told CNBC on Aug. 9.


But even with a bear market nowhere in sight, some individual stocks may be in trouble.

Today, we’ll look at seven stocks that have consensus hold or sell ratings from Wall Street right now, indicating that they could be trouble in the months ahead. We’ll also share analysts’ price targets on these stocks to avoid, and the pros’ reasons as to why.
