Is Apollo Investment Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Apollo Investment Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Apollo Investment Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Apollo Investment Corporation's P/E ratio
Apollo Investment Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Apollo Investment Corporation shares trade at around 8x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Apollo Investment Corporation's PEG ratio
Apollo Investment Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.18. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Apollo Investment Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Apollo Investment Corporation shares
There are currently 2.1 million Apollo Investment Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Apollo Investment Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% up from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Apollo Investment Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Apollo Investment Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Apollo Investment Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Apollo Investment Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Apollo Investment Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 330239.33121019). Apollo Investment Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.28. In other words for every 100,000 Apollo Investment Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6280 shares are currently held short.
However Apollo Investment Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Apollo Investment Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Apollo Investment Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Apollo Investment Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Apollo Investment Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0334% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Apollo Investment Corporation shares, roughly 33 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Apollo Investment Corporation.

Apollo Investment Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.15% of net profits
Recently Apollo Investment Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Apollo Investment Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 8.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Apollo Investment Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.39 per share.
While Apollo Investment Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Apollo Investment Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Apollo Investment Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 3 January 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Apollo Investment Corporation's shares ever split?
Apollo Investment Corporation's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 2 December 2018. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Apollo Investment Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Apollo Investment Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Apollo Investment Corporation's share price.
Apollo Investment Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Apollo Investment Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.7692 up to $14.8988. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Apollo Investment Corporation's is 2.0778. This would suggest that Apollo Investment Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
