It's time to place your final bets
Your typical Thanksgiving meal may send you into a week-long food coma. But that shouldn't stop you from getting your portfolio in order before closing out your books for the year.

We looked at 10 widely-held and well-known stocks that have tumbled more than 10% this year (and are on track to finish off the year in the red), and talked to analysts and fund managers to find out whether you should buy, sell or hold.

According to the experts we talked to, some of these companies have been unfairly punished and are bound to make you some bucks next year. Others need some time to get in shape, but deserve a seat on the bench for now. And then there are one or two you might want to kick to the curb.

As you start to make your final bets, click through and find out why these popular stocks took a harsh beating this year and what you need to know.
