Is MFA Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

MFA Financial's P/E ratio

MFA Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, MFA Financial shares trade at around 11x 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.

MFA Financial's PEG ratio

MFA Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.25. 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 MFA Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

MFA Financial share dividends

We're not expecting MFA Financial to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have MFA Financial's shares ever split?

MFA Financial's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 4 April 2022. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your MFA Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for MFA Financial shares which in turn could have impacted MFA Financial's share price.

MFA Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MFA Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.9005 up to $15.6854. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MFA.US volatility(beta: 1.93)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 MFA Financial's is 1.9337. This would suggest that MFA Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
