Is Fidus Investment stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Fidus Investment stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fidus Investment's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Fidus Investment's P/E ratio
Fidus Investment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Fidus Investment shares trade at around 6x 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's PEG ratio
Fidus Investment'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's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Fidus Investment share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 106.88% of net profits
Recently Fidus Investment has paid out, on average, around 106.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.45% 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 shareholders could enjoy a 9.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fidus Investment's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.
Fidus Investment'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.
Fidus Investment's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Fidus Investment's shares ever split?
Fidus Investment's shares were split on 9 September 2013.
Fidus Investment share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Fidus Investment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.5652 up to $20.6098. 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 Fidus Investment's is 1.5996. This would suggest that Fidus Investment's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
