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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, FS KKR Capital shares trade at around 8x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.9 million FS KKR Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as FS KKR Capital's "short interest". This figure is 36.2% down from 3.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FS KKR Capital shares can be evaluated.
FS KKR Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FS KKR Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FS KKR Capital shares traded daily (recently around 717146.41509434). FS KKR Capital's SIR currently stands at 2.65. In other words for every 100,000 FS KKR Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2650 shares are currently held short.
However FS KKR Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FS KKR Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable FS KKR Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FS KKR Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FS KKR Capital shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0154% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FS KKR Capital shares, roughly 15 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 FS KKR Capital.

Dividend payout ratio: 85.41% of net profits
Recently FS KKR Capital has paid out, on average, around 85.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 14.41% 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 14.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FS KKR Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $2.4 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 5 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
FS KKR Capital's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 16 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.
Over the last 12 months, FS KKR Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.5704 up to $20.6339. 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 1.6845. 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).
