I admit I'm a beginner investor but am learning fast. However, a lot of companies seem to have negative gross/net gearing. Can anyone explain what this is and what it means?

I understand an ideal gearing of not more than 50% is good, more than 100% somewhat risky.

I understand negative gearing in relation to property.

But I don't know what it means - and can't find this out anywhere - when a company negatively gears.

Also - which is more important to look at gross or net gearing?

Many thanks in advance!
