Is Crescent Capital BDC under- or over-valued?

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

Crescent Capital BDC's P/E ratio

Crescent Capital BDC'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, Crescent Capital BDC 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.

Crescent Capital BDC's PEG ratio

Crescent Capital BDC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0122. 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 Crescent Capital BDC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 49,617 Crescent Capital BDC shares held short by investors – that's known as Crescent Capital BDC's "short interest". This figure is 40.8% up from 35,230 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Crescent Capital BDC shares can be evaluated.

Crescent Capital BDC's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Crescent Capital BDC's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Crescent Capital BDC shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Crescent Capital BDC shares traded daily (recently around 97288.235294118). Crescent Capital BDC's SIR currently stands at 0.51. In other words for every 100,000 Crescent Capital BDC shares traded daily on the market, roughly 510 shares are currently held short.

However Crescent Capital BDC's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Crescent Capital BDC shares, or, against the total number of tradable Crescent Capital BDC shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Crescent Capital BDC's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Crescent Capital BDC shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Crescent Capital BDC shares, roughly 2 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 Crescent Capital BDC.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.85% of the current stock value.
