Valuing Fidus Investment Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fidus Investment Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Fidus Investment Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Fidus Investment Corporation shares trade at around 13x 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.
Fidus Investment Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.59. 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 Fidus Investment Corporation'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 242,262 Fidus Investment Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Fidus Investment Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 70.6% up from 141,983 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fidus Investment Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Fidus Investment Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fidus Investment Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fidus Investment Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 156298.06451613). Fidus Investment Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.55. In other words for every 100,000 Fidus Investment Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1550 shares are currently held short.
However Fidus Investment Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fidus Investment Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fidus Investment Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fidus Investment Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fidus Investment Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0101% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fidus Investment Corporation 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 Fidus Investment Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 84.29% of net profits
Recently Fidus Investment Corporation has paid out, on average, around 84.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fidus Investment Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 7.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fidus Investment Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.29 per share.
Fidus Investment Corporation'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.
