If you intend on buying every time it goes below a certain price place a limit order with no expiration date

if you just want to get an alert when it hits a price set up a IFTTT https://ifttt.com/stocks

If you think they may announce bankruptcy then your investment is "gambling."

Not necessarily.
Some companies are worth more bankrupt.
(And even if it's not, a company can still have a large amount of assets after bankruptcy.)

ETA: S is currently selling for about half the price of it's total assets (0.57 Price/Book).

These things are usually factored in to the stock price

Sometimes, not always.
If it was always priced in, Warren Buffett and his teacher wouldn't be millionaire/billionaires.

Um no, all i was saying is that checking up on a few stock symbols each day is far more practical than to place a limit order with no expiration, regardless of the company strength.

If they go bankrupt they'll probably merge with TMUS or someone else, which can be the best thing happening to shareholders in terms of getting the new company shares (i.e. American Airlines)

Every bankruptcy case is different. A judge can just as easily decide to give none of the new shares to the bankrupt stockholders.
