the Death List  

High Risk Stocks

The Death List includes two stock portfolios that we think are risky business. Of course, we don’t know for sure that they’re heading down; so don’t sell them short based on our opinion. However, you might want to do a little extra due diligence if you own them.

Death List #1: Death by Debt

These firms have built up debt levels that could be a drag on earnings and cash flow for years to come. Among other factors, we've employed these two financial strength tests to pinpoint our list of potential underperformers. 

Leverage Ratio: total assets divided by shareholders’ equity. A firm with no debt would have a leverage ratio of one, and the higher the debt, the higher the ratio.

Interest Coverage: amount of annual interest covered by a cash flow measure (EBITDA). A ratio of 1.0 means that annual interest and EBITDA are equal. Ratios of 4.0 or higher reflect solid balance sheets. Negative ratios reflect negative cash flow.

Optimum Hold Period: 4 Weeks

Death List #2: Too Hot Not to Cool Down

Have these overpriced stocks have gone too far, too fast? This list comes from a screen inspired by a series of occasional articles spotlighting overpriced stocks published by Barron’s in the mid-90s. The screen searches out stocks that are overvalued by a variety of measures, and have already recorded strong results over the past 52 weeks.
