Short sellers stock screener: Financial Distress

CAUTION: these free screeners aren’t for traditional long investment, but rather for scouting short selling candidates (those whose price you’d expect to go lower). Please read some of the risks of short selling, which may be only suitable for sophisticated investors and still risky nonetheless.

DISCLAIMER: these are automated reports, generated with no human intervention and updated regularly, not intended to offend or harm any company whatsoever, and may contain inaccuracies.

These companies may be struggling and in financial peril. They may even be flirting with bankruptcy. These are the criteria filtered:

  • Very large indebtedness, measured in relative terms to both assets and results (EBITDA). Full repayment could demand a very long time, even if possible, without third-party aid.
  • High interest expenses relative to the business possibilities. Interest expenses may consume a very large portion of genuine funds generation, or even exceed them.
  • Mostly illiquid assets (and therefore difficult to exchange for cash or equivalents).
  • A significant portion of stockholders equity may be backed by intangible assets, which may be potentially worthless in case of bankruptcy.

While not necessarily doomed, they might be at risk of failure.
