Valuing Dynex Capital stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dynex Capital's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Dynex 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 4x. In other words, Dynex Capital shares trade at around 4x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.5 million Dynex Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Dynex Capital's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dynex Capital shares can be evaluated.
Dynex Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dynex Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dynex Capital shares traded daily (recently around 365736.05769231). Dynex Capital's SIR currently stands at 4.16. In other words for every 100,000 Dynex Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4160 shares are currently held short.
However Dynex Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dynex Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dynex Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dynex Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dynex Capital shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0769% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dynex Capital shares, roughly 77 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 Dynex Capital.

Dividend payout ratio: 25.87% of net profits
Recently Dynex Capital has paid out, on average, around 25.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dynex Capital shareholders could enjoy a 9.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dynex Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $1.56 per share.
While Dynex Capital's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Dynex Capital may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Dynex Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 1 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Dynex Capital's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 21 June 2019. So if you had owned 3 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 Dynex Capital shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dynex Capital shares which in turn could have impacted Dynex Capital's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Dynex Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.04 up to $20.34. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Dynex Capital's is 1.2885. This would suggest that Dynex 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).
