An Altman Z-Score below 1.8 (Remember that Mid-America Apartment Communities Inc’s score is 1.72) is the trigger to be alert for this situation. Some analysts believe this score is less relevant for some companies, in particular companies operating to accumulate users that may run at huge losses to scale up.
