They do not fit any criteria on the fool's strategy in investing.

Mind you if you were a shareholder though; with those debts; I would be a bit worried with the increase in interest rates pushing margins lower!

This industry is a cut throat.

Try applying a couple of ratio's to businesses that you intend to invest in. Once done with the mandatory ratio's over a 2 to 3 year period and worked out all of the P/E ratio's then try applying the 'Z' score. The 'Z' score is a bankruptcy indicator ratio that gives a very gd margin over a number of years based on liquidity, stockturn and P/E ratios. T'is fun to apply to a lot of companies, especially the leveraged ones as these are more prone to the crisis' on liquidity!
