The stock, already beaten down, was delisted and nearly deactivated. The shares, with a new ticker of GMXRQ, sank 81 percent to close at 42 cents on the over-the-counter bulletin board. Because this column covers only Oklahoma stocks that trade on major exchanges, this will be the last appearance of GMX unless it somehow rises from the ashes of this bankruptcy.

The company, which has significant assets but crushing debt, hopes to reorganize. But bankruptcy typically wipes out the holdings of shareholders, who stand at the back of the line of creditors.

GMX stock recovered once before from penny stock territory. But investors likely won't recover from this event.
