Is Golub Capital BDC stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Golub Capital BDC's P/E ratio

Golub Capital 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 15x. In other words, Golub Capital BDC shares trade at around 15x 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.

Golub Capital BDC's PEG ratio

Golub Capital BDC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.51. 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 Golub Capital 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.

Golub Capital BDC share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.32% of net profits

Recently Golub Capital BDC has paid out, on average, around 2.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Golub Capital BDC shareholders could enjoy a 9.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Golub Capital BDC's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

While Golub Capital BDC's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Golub Capital BDC is investing more in its future growth.

Golub Capital BDC's most recent dividend payout was on 28 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Golub Capital BDC's shares ever split?

Golub Capital BDC's shares were split on a 1021:1000 basis on 12 April 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1021 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Golub Capital BDC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Golub Capital BDC shares which in turn could have impacted Golub Capital BDC's share price.

Golub Capital BDC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Golub Capital BDC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.6466 up to $14.8729. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GBDC.US volatility(beta: 0.68)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 Golub Capital BDC's is 0.676. This would suggest that Golub Capital BDC's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
