Ok, that makes a lot of sense to me. By the way, is there a way to figure out the interest rate that a company pays on its long term debt?

Also, did you buy any of those companies after the housing crash? How cheap did you get them? :P

Also, I have been cruising around and noticed a metric called "structural free cash flow" (Tom Gardner calls this the "fool ratio"). It calls for certain numbers like net income, depreciation and amortization, and one time items. I just wanted to ask: what qualifies as a one time item? Would the issuance of long term debt / Capital stock be considered a one time item (This discrepancy really makes a difference on a company's free cash flow)

And you are certainly right about the greek bank. I ended up just leaving it alone. It's numbers look really bad and the financial statements are just too opaque to make an educated guess about what will happen over there. It's too much of a gamble in my opinion, there are plenty of other great stocks to be had.
