10 S&P Stocks With The Lowest Cash To Debt Ratios

Apple has tons of cash, right, but the technology giant also owns massive debt. 

If you subtract those burdens from the cash account, you see that Apples cash is much smaller as many might think. A useful way to evalueate this problem is to calculate the cash-to-debt ratio.

Cash To Debt Ratio compares a company's operating cash flow to its total debt, which, for purposes of this ratio, is defined as the sum of short-term borrowings, the current portion of long-term debt and long-term debt. 

This ratio provides an indication of a company's ability to cover total debt with its yearly cash flow from operations. The higher the percentage ratio, the better the company's ability to carry its total debt.

6 High-Quality Dividend Bargains For High-Income Investors

Retirees want their portfolios to provide safe, consistent, reliable income that grows faster than the pace of inflation. 

Retirees want investments that will protect their nest egg, allow them to sleep easy at night, and provide steady income. Dividend stocks perfectly match retirement investor needs. 

Dividend stocks can also lead to early retirement. Investing in high quality dividend growth stocks provides retirees with consistent, reliable, growing dividend income. But… Not all dividend stocks are created equal. Some are high risk – high yield stocks. 

They can be appealing to retirees, but they are dangerous. The last thing you need in retirement is for your nest egg to get scrambled. Other dividend stocks have fantastic growth potential and a high degree of safety – but have very low yields.
