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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, Golub Capital BDC shares trade at around 38x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.7 million Golub Capital BDC shares held short by investors – that's known as Golub Capital BDC's "short interest". This figure is 13.8% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Golub Capital BDC shares can be evaluated.
Golub Capital BDC's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Golub Capital BDC shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Golub Capital BDC shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Golub Capital BDC's SIR currently stands at 1.59. In other words for every 100,000 Golub Capital BDC shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1590 shares are currently held short.
However Golub Capital BDC's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Golub Capital BDC shares, or, against the total number of tradable Golub Capital BDC shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Golub Capital BDC's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Golub Capital BDC shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0085% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Golub Capital BDC shares, roughly 9 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 Golub Capital BDC.

Dividend payout ratio: 127.13% of net profits
Recently Golub Capital BDC has paid out, on average, around 127.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.41% 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 8.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Golub Capital BDC's case, that would currently equate to about $1.16 per share.
Golub Capital BDC'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.
Golub Capital BDC's most recent dividend payout was on 30 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Golub Capital BDC's shares were split on a 1021:1000 basis on 13 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.
