Once you have this list of debt free companies, you can further analyze them to check the other financial and economic health before investing. Anyways, before we start, here is what you need to know first before we start:
What is Debt to Equity Ratio?
The debt-to-equity ratio measures the relationship between the amount of capital that has been borrowed (i.e. debt) and the amount of capital contributed by shareholders (i.e. equity).
Debt to Equity Ratio =(Total Liabilities)/(Total Shareholder Equity)
Generally, as a firm’s debt-to-equity ratio increases, it becomes riskier. Companies with zero debt to equity mean that they don’t have any debt and manage the company on their equity and reserves & surplus smoothly. They don’t have any pressures of liabilities.
A lower debt-to-equity number means that a company is using less leverage and has a stronger equity position. As a thumb rule, invest in companies with debt to equity ratio less than 0.5 as it means that the debts are very less than the equity. This tells us that these are very well-managed companies. Moreover, companies with the debt-to-equity ratio of more than 1 are risky and should be considered carefully before investing.
