Importance Of Debt Free Stocks When The Interest Rate Is Rising

Importance Of Debt Free Stocks When The Interest Rate Is Rising

The interest rates are being raised by the major central banks, globally, including the US. India is not an exception regarding this, the RBI has recently hiked its key lending rate, the repo rate by 40 basis points to 4.40%. Analysts are expecting that some more repo rate hikes are on the way in the country. The central banks are rising the rates to control inflation. However, why is it important to invest in debt-free companies when the rate is being raised and the stock markets are already under pressure? Debt-free companies are liable to repay their debts via loans. With the rate hike, the interest rates on debts will increase for a company, affecting its profitability. With a down-gradation in a company's profitability, the share prices can fall significantly. So, for investors, it will be wise to look out for debt-free stocks, that are not liable to pay back their debts with interest.
