Is Invesco Mortgage Capital under- or over-valued?

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

Invesco Mortgage Capital's P/E ratio

Invesco Mortgage Capital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Invesco Mortgage Capital shares trade at around 1x 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.

Shorting Invesco Mortgage Capital shares

There are currently 54.6 million Invesco Mortgage Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Invesco Mortgage Capital's "short interest". This figure is 6.3% down from 58.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Invesco Mortgage Capital shares can be evaluated.

Invesco Mortgage Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Invesco Mortgage Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Invesco Mortgage Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Invesco Mortgage Capital shares traded daily (recently around 7.1 million). Invesco Mortgage Capital's SIR currently stands at 7.71. In other words for every 100,000 Invesco Mortgage Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7710 shares are currently held short.

However Invesco Mortgage Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Invesco Mortgage Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Invesco Mortgage Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Invesco Mortgage Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.3% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Invesco Mortgage Capital shares in existence, roughly 300 shares are currently held short) or 0.3538% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Invesco Mortgage Capital shares, roughly 354 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 Invesco Mortgage Capital.

Invesco Mortgage Capital share dividends

76%

Dividend payout ratio: 76.45% of net profits

Recently Invesco Mortgage Capital has paid out, on average, around 76.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Invesco Mortgage Capital shareholders could enjoy a 2.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Invesco Mortgage Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.

Invesco Mortgage Capital'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.

Invesco Mortgage Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 28 July 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Invesco Mortgage Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Invesco Mortgage Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.8201 up to $18.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IVR.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Invesco Mortgage Capital's is 1.2676. This would suggest that Invesco Mortgage Capital's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
