Is FS KKR Capital stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing FS KKR Capital stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FS KKR Capital's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FS KKR Capital's P/E ratio
FS KKR 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 3x. In other words, FS KKR Capital shares trade at around 3x 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.

FS KKR Capital share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 91.81% of net profits
Recently FS KKR Capital has paid out, on average, around 91.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 14.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FS KKR Capital shareholders could enjoy a 14.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FS KKR Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $2.5 per share.
FS KKR Capital'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.
FS KKR Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 4 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have FS KKR Capital's shares ever split?
FS KKR Capital's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 15 June 2020. So if you had owned 4 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 FS KKR Capital shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for FS KKR Capital shares which in turn could have impacted FS KKR Capital's share price.
FS KKR Capital share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, FS KKR Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.0129 up to $22.4404. 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 FS KKR Capital's is 1.4351. This would suggest that FS KKR 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).
