How the Distressed Company Alert Works

Alert categories and what we go through to produce the Distressed Company Alert

The goal of the Distressed Company Alert is to help our subscribers achieve success by identifying and monitoring companies that are experiencing financial distress.

The Distressed Company Alert helps its subscribers:

  • Find new customers
  • Uncover long and short-selling opportunities
  • Monitor financially distressed companies
  • Find debts that are at risk of default or bankruptcy
  • To produce the Distressed Company Alert, each day the experienced staff at New Generation Research puts their 25+ years of corporate bankruptcy research experience to work and searches all available sources of information on companies to identify those elements that reflect distress.

    To ensure that the content of the Distressed Company Alert is presented in the most pragmatic format, we group information into the clearly defined “Alert Categories” listed below. The result is an offering that gives subscribers everything they need to respond accordingly.
