The company has accumulated 45.82 B in total debt with debt to equity ratio (D/E) of 1.62, which looks OK as compared to the sector. Dominion Resources has a current ratio of 0.85, which means it has a negative working capital and may have difficulties to pay out interest payments when they become due. Debt can assist Dominion Resources until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Dominion Resources' shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Dominion Resources sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Dominion to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Dominion Resources' use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.
