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 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 "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2. 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.

There are currently 642,727 Gladstone Investment Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Gladstone Investment Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 11% up from 579,051 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Gladstone Investment Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Gladstone Investment Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gladstone Investment Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gladstone Investment Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 173710). Gladstone Investment Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.7. In other words for every 100,000 Gladstone Investment Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3700 shares are currently held short.
However Gladstone Investment Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gladstone Investment Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gladstone Investment Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gladstone Investment Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gladstone Investment Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0199% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gladstone Investment Corporation shares, roughly 20 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 Gladstone Investment Corporation.
