D/E ratio should be market values when calculating levered beta. I don't see how this ratio can be negative

you can consider negative ration only in a short period...never for long period

I assume that you are using net debt and market equity to come to a negative D/E ratio. In that case, it is perfectly consistent to use the negative D/E ratio and end up with a levered beta that is lower than your unlevered beta... (the cash pulls the beta of equity down ...)
