Is First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC's P/E ratio

First Eagle Alternative 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 23x. In other words, First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC shares trade at around 23x 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.

First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 102.5% of net profits

Recently First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC has paid out, on average, around 102.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 13.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC shareholders could enjoy a 13.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC'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.

First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.1033 up to $4.406. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FCRD.US volatility(beta: 1.39)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
