Altman Z-Score Comparison by Stock Ticker

This project is to be used by a buy side analyst looking to take a short position in a company. Short sellers make their money off of other companies ill fortune. Bankruptcy is one of those ill fortunes that can beset a company. The Altman Z-Score is a model developed by a scholar, which takes into account various financial measures and computes a z score or measure of whether or not bankruptcy is likely. This tool takes as its input a stock ticker, and from that ticker looks up all of the various financial measures necessary and then gives you the z score as the final result so that you can know whether or not a specified company is on the road to financial destruction.
