I was wondering if any of you have had trouble with the Long Term Debt coding as having a flaw? I tried running a simple filter showing this code: Long Term Debt between 0.0 and 0.1. I pull 136 stocks from this statement, I then went into Fidelity and pulled up a few of these I got from this filter and found 3 out of the 5 picks as having more debt than this filter expressed in its request. Either Fidelity's financial information is wrong or StockFetcher's program is wrong. Have you had the same problem?

StockFetcher replied back to me stating at this time there is NO "Long Term Debt" function / measurement that can be used in any filter. a few years ago SF did have a Long Term Debt measurement but they removed it. My question / problem with it is answered. I did however let SF know that many of us would like them to put it back into our filertering capabilities because of the fact it is an important measurement when using existing fundamental measurements such as the EPS, and or the ROE. Having a Long Term Debt measurement also to be used in your fundamental filtering would further assure us all we are searching for the best quality companies out there.
