Is Horizon Technology Finance Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's P/E ratio

Horizon Technology Finance 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 29x. In other words, Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares trade at around 29x 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.

Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's PEG ratio

Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.07. 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 Horizon Technology Finance 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.

Shorting Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares

There are currently 463,020 Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% up from 438,733 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 82978.494623656). Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.58. In other words for every 100,000 Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5580 shares are currently held short.

However Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0231% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shares, roughly 23 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Horizon Technology Finance Corporation.

Horizon Technology Finance Corporation share dividends

34%

Dividend payout ratio: 34.19% of net profits

Recently Horizon Technology Finance Corporation has paid out, on average, around 34.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Horizon Technology Finance Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 6.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

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

Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Horizon Technology Finance Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.2663 up to $17.582. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HRZN.US volatility(beta: 1.07)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 Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's is 1.0746. This would suggest that Horizon Technology Finance Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
