Q: I've been considering Dollarama for a small position. You seem generally positive about it.

I found it to be the only company among the ones I researched with a negative shareholder equity. Investopedia tells me this is a warning sign, indicating the companies liabilities exceeds its debt.

Can you explain Dollarama's situation and advise as to whether this is a company to avoid?

Thanks as always.
