Description:

According to Jeanine Poggi, "Bankruptcies in the retail sector are still a very disconcerting prospect. ...

The Altman Z-Score measures several aspects of a company's financial health to forecast the probability of it going bankrupt within two years.

The list looks at those companies with a Z-Score below 3 for the full fiscal year." Read more here.
