Is Barings Corporate Investors under- or over-valued?
Valuing Barings Corporate Investors stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Barings Corporate Investors's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Barings Corporate Investors's P/E ratio
Barings Corporate Investors's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Barings Corporate Investors shares trade at around 9x 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.

Shorting Barings Corporate Investors shares
There are currently 6,952 Barings Corporate Investors shares held short by investors – that's known as Barings Corporate Investors's "short interest". This figure is 25.9% up from 5,523 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Barings Corporate Investors shares can be evaluated.
Barings Corporate Investors's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Barings Corporate Investors's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Barings Corporate Investors shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Barings Corporate Investors shares traded daily (recently around 13369.230769231). Barings Corporate Investors's SIR currently stands at 0.52. In other words for every 100,000 Barings Corporate Investors shares traded daily on the market, roughly 520 shares are currently held short.
However Barings Corporate Investors's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Barings Corporate Investors shares, or, against the total number of tradable Barings Corporate Investors shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Barings Corporate Investors's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Barings Corporate Investors shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Barings Corporate Investors shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Barings Corporate Investors.

Barings Corporate Investors share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 46.33% of net profits
Recently Barings Corporate Investors has paid out, on average, around 46.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Barings Corporate Investors shareholders could enjoy a 6.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Barings Corporate Investors's case, that would currently equate to about $0.96 per share.
While Barings Corporate Investors's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Barings Corporate Investors may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Barings Corporate Investors's most recent dividend payout was on 10 January 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Barings Corporate Investors's shares ever split?
Barings Corporate Investors's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 February 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Barings Corporate Investors shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Barings Corporate Investors shares which in turn could have impacted Barings Corporate Investors's share price.
Barings Corporate Investors share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Barings Corporate Investors's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.8223 up to $15.2364. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
