Is Goldman Sachs BDC under- or over-valued?

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

Goldman Sachs BDC's P/E ratio

Goldman Sachs 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 6x. In other words, Goldman Sachs BDC shares trade at around 6x 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.

Goldman Sachs BDC's PEG ratio

Goldman Sachs BDC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.15. 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 Goldman Sachs BDC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Goldman Sachs BDC shares

There are currently 376,861 Goldman Sachs BDC shares held short by investors – that's known as Goldman Sachs BDC's "short interest". This figure is 26.2% down from 510,493 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Goldman Sachs BDC shares can be evaluated.

Goldman Sachs BDC's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Goldman Sachs BDC's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Goldman Sachs BDC shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Goldman Sachs BDC shares traded daily (recently around 428251.13636364). Goldman Sachs BDC's SIR currently stands at 0.88. In other words for every 100,000 Goldman Sachs BDC shares traded daily on the market, roughly 880 shares are currently held short.

However Goldman Sachs BDC's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Goldman Sachs BDC shares, or, against the total number of tradable Goldman Sachs BDC shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Goldman Sachs BDC's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Goldman Sachs BDC shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0037% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Goldman Sachs BDC shares, roughly 4 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 Goldman Sachs BDC.

Goldman Sachs BDC share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.41% of net profits

Recently Goldman Sachs BDC has paid out, on average, around 29.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Goldman Sachs BDC shareholders could enjoy a 9.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Goldman Sachs BDC's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.

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

Goldman Sachs BDC's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Goldman Sachs BDC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Goldman Sachs BDC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.8365 up to $20.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GSBD.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Goldman Sachs BDC's is 1.5229. This would suggest that Goldman Sachs 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).
