The aim of this study is to assess the predictive power of logit model and hazard model in predicting bankruptcy and to analyse the stability of the models. Using Malaysian listed companies and a sample span from 1998 to 2014, this study found that, for the hazard model, all variables were significant while for the logit model only five variables were significant. The results also show that the logistic and hazard models both had predictive accuracies of more than 90%. However, the hazard model had a predictive accuracy of 99.4% while logit model had a predictive accuracy of 91.8%. The hazard model was more stable than logit model as the predictive accuracy of the hazard only changed a little when a smaller sample was chosen. Lastly, the study showed that, even though both models were good in predicting distress, the hazard model is better than logit model.
