Is Annaly Capital Management under- or over-valued?
Valuing Annaly Capital Management stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Annaly Capital Management's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Annaly Capital Management's P/E ratio
Annaly Capital Management's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Annaly Capital Management shares trade at around 3x recent earnings.
