Why is this firm a rising star stock?

“This stock has been absolutely annihilated,” says Karen Finerman. “Valuations are currently lower than they’ve been in many, many moons. Also they’ve been able to restructure debt so they have a lot of liquidity. On top of that, they have some interesting holders and they have insider buying."
