Is Barings Participation Investors stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Barings Participation Investors stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Barings Participation Investors's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Barings Participation Investors's P/E ratio

Barings Participation 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 5x. In other words, Barings Participation Investors shares trade at around 5x 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.

Barings Participation Investors share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 37.76% of net profits

Recently Barings Participation Investors has paid out, on average, around 37.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Barings Participation Investors shareholders could enjoy a 5.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Barings Participation Investors's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

While Barings Participation Investors's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Barings Participation Investors may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Barings Participation 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 28 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
