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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, BlackRock TCP Capital shares trade at around 12x 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 "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.08. 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 597,623 BlackRock TCP Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as BlackRock TCP Capital's "short interest". This figure is 101% up from 297,317 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BlackRock TCP Capital shares can be evaluated.
BlackRock TCP Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BlackRock TCP Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BlackRock TCP Capital shares traded daily (recently around 459710). BlackRock TCP Capital's SIR currently stands at 1.3. In other words for every 100,000 BlackRock TCP Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1300 shares are currently held short.
However BlackRock TCP Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BlackRock TCP Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable BlackRock TCP Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BlackRock TCP Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BlackRock TCP Capital shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0104% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BlackRock TCP Capital shares, roughly 10 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 BlackRock TCP Capital.

Dividend payout ratio: 87.74% of net profits
Recently BlackRock TCP Capital has paid out, on average, around 87.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.27% 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 8.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BlackRock TCP Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 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 30 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, BlackRock TCP Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.5396 up to $14.8902. 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 1.7595. 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).
