Is Gladstone Investment Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Gladstone Investment Corporation's P/E ratio

Gladstone 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 11x. In other words, Gladstone Investment Corporation shares trade at around 11x 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.

Gladstone Investment Corporation's PEG ratio

Gladstone Investment Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.4638. 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 Gladstone 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.

Gladstone Investment Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 35.64% of net profits

Recently Gladstone Investment Corporation has paid out, on average, around 35.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Gladstone Investment Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 7.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Gladstone Investment Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.

While Gladstone Investment Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Gladstone Investment Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Gladstone Investment Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Gladstone Investment Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gladstone Investment Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.0333 up to $15.7126. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GAIN.US volatility(beta: 1.43)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Gladstone Investment Corporation's is 1.4336. This would suggest that Gladstone Investment Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
