Is Ellington Financial LLC stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Ellington Financial LLC's P/E ratio

Ellington Financial LLC's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Ellington Financial LLC shares trade at around 9x 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.

Ellington Financial LLC's PEG ratio

Ellington Financial LLC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.86. 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 Ellington Financial LLC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ellington Financial LLC share dividends

36%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.5% of net profits

Recently Ellington Financial LLC has paid out, on average, around 35.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 13.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ellington Financial LLC shareholders could enjoy a 13.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ellington Financial LLC's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.

While Ellington Financial LLC's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Ellington Financial LLC may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Ellington Financial LLC's most recent dividend payout was on 26 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ellington Financial LLC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ellington Financial LLC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.442 up to $16.3559. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EFC.US volatility(beta: 1.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ellington Financial LLC's is 1.8423. This would suggest that Ellington Financial LLC's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
