Is BlackRock TCP Capital stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing BlackRock TCP Capital stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BlackRock TCP Capital's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BlackRock TCP Capital's P/E ratio
BlackRock TCP Capital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, BlackRock TCP Capital shares trade at around 11x 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.
BlackRock TCP Capital's PEG ratio
BlackRock TCP Capital's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8818. 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 BlackRock TCP Capital's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

BlackRock TCP Capital share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 85.52% of net profits
Recently BlackRock TCP Capital has paid out, on average, around 85.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BlackRock TCP Capital shareholders could enjoy a 9.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BlackRock TCP Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.
BlackRock TCP Capital's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
BlackRock TCP Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 11 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
BlackRock TCP Capital share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, BlackRock TCP Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.3482 up to $13.6052. 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 BlackRock TCP Capital's is 1.4472. This would suggest that BlackRock TCP Capital's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
