Metals manufacturers have been deemed the "safest" businesses by Business Data Israel (BDI) for the month of October as the chance of a business in this sector closing fell to 5% last month from 5.4% in September. Local paper and cardboard manufacturers also were rated as "secure" after posting good numbers during October, with only a 5.06% risk of closing, according to BDI. Following, in third place for the month, were chemical manufacturers, which received high marks from BDI based on strong sales during October, and were assigned a 5.35% risk factor. On the other hand, moving companies were named as "high-risk" businesses by BDI with a 7.08% chance of closing, based on decreased performance during the month, followed by building companies at 6.99% and restaurants, pubs and coffee-houses at 6.98%.
