Valuing Capitala Finance stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Capitala Finance's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Capitala Finance's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.55. 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 Capitala Finance'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 28,108 Capitala Finance shares held short by investors – that's known as Capitala Finance's "short interest". This figure is 124.7% up from 12,511 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Capitala Finance shares can be evaluated.
Capitala Finance's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Capitala Finance shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Capitala Finance shares traded daily (recently around 43918.75). Capitala Finance's SIR currently stands at 0.64. In other words for every 100,000 Capitala Finance shares traded daily on the market, roughly 640 shares are currently held short.
However Capitala Finance's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Capitala Finance shares, or, against the total number of tradable Capitala Finance shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Capitala Finance's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Capitala Finance shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0112% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Capitala Finance shares, roughly 11 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 Capitala Finance.

Dividend payout ratio: 128.14% of net profits
Recently Capitala Finance has paid out, on average, around 128.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 26.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Capitala Finance shareholders could enjoy a 26.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Capitala Finance's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
Capitala Finance'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.
Capitala Finance's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Capitala Finance's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 24 August 2020. So if you had owned 6 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 Capitala Finance shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Capitala Finance shares which in turn could have impacted Capitala Finance's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Capitala Finance's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.4 up to $53.4014. 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 Capitala Finance's is 1.8724. This would suggest that Capitala Finance's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
