Is Great Elm Capital Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Great Elm Capital Corporation's P/E ratio

Great Elm Capital 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 33x. In other words, Great Elm Capital Corporation shares trade at around 33x 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.

Great Elm Capital Corporation share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.74% of net profits

Recently Great Elm Capital Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 12.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Great Elm Capital Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 12.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Great Elm Capital Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.546 per share.

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

Great Elm Capital Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Great Elm Capital Corporation's shares ever split?

Great Elm Capital Corporation's shares were split on a 1025:1000 basis on 26 November 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1025 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Great Elm Capital Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Great Elm Capital Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Great Elm Capital Corporation's share price.

Great Elm Capital Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Great Elm Capital Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.6953 up to $3.6445. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GECC.US volatility(beta: 1.87)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 Great Elm Capital Corporation's is 1.8713. This would suggest that Great Elm Capital 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).
