Is Monroe Capital Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Monroe Capital Corporation's P/E ratio

Monroe 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 5x. In other words, Monroe Capital Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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.

Monroe Capital Corporation's PEG ratio

Monroe Capital Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.05. 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 Monroe Capital 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 Monroe Capital Corporation shares

There are currently 172,041 Monroe Capital Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Monroe Capital Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7% down from 184,938 last month.

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

Monroe Capital Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Monroe Capital Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Monroe Capital Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Monroe Capital Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 51355.52238806). Monroe Capital Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.35. In other words for every 100,000 Monroe Capital Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3350 shares are currently held short.

However Monroe Capital Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Monroe Capital Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Monroe Capital Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Monroe Capital Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Monroe Capital Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0083% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Monroe Capital Corporation shares, roughly 8 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 Monroe Capital Corporation.

Monroe Capital Corporation share dividends

100%

Dividend payout ratio: 100% of net profits

Recently Monroe Capital Corporation has paid out, on average, around 100% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Monroe Capital Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 9.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Monroe Capital Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

Monroe Capital Corporation'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.

Monroe Capital Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Monroe Capital Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Monroe Capital Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.7584 up to $11.0874. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MRCC.US volatility(beta: 1.44)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 Monroe Capital Corporation's is 1.4434. This would suggest that Monroe 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).
