From now on, I will ask some english questions for those I found is hard from newspaper, article, movies, or even lyrics every day.

Hope it can increase my English, and thank you for everyone helping me!

    correct.

    ... firms have genuine (adj.) financial (adj.) problems (n.)

    both of the adjectives are used to modify the noun (problems).

    if you say...

    ... or if firms have genuine. <-- wrong. missing a noun.

    Genuine: yes, it is adjective. There is no problem. The adjectives "genuine" and "financial" both describe the noun "problems".
