SUPRATRADE 10 Companies That May Be Ready to Collapse


What if you could predict the next Enron?

In June 2001, just months before its historic collapse, Enron's share price sat at half the value it was six months earlier. Many investors held out hope that the fall in price was just temporary and the shares would recover. The credit ratings agencies still rated Enron "BBB," meaning they believed the firm was "investment-grade" and would make good on its debt obligations.

But there was one metric that forecasted a completely different outcome: the Z-score.

There is a chance that none of these firms will be forced into bankruptcy in the near future. It's important to keep in mind that many firms do bounce back from tough financial circumstances.

However, the Z-score, with its oft-tested reliability in predicting bankruptcy, will probably end up claiming at least a few of the firms on the list.
