Valuing MVC Capital stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of MVC Capital's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
MVC 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 5x. In other words, MVC Capital 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 16,121 MVC Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as MVC Capital's "short interest". This figure is 60.2% down from 40,515 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MVC Capital shares can be evaluated.
MVC Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MVC Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MVC Capital shares traded daily (recently around 46060). MVC Capital's SIR currently stands at 0.35. In other words for every 100,000 MVC Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 350 shares are currently held short.
However MVC Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MVC Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable MVC Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MVC Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MVC Capital shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.001% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MVC Capital shares, roughly 1 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 MVC Capital.

Dividend payout ratio: 118.6% of net profits
Recently MVC Capital has paid out, on average, around 118.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MVC Capital shareholders could enjoy a 7.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MVC Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
MVC 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.
MVC Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 31 July 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, MVC Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.8509 up to $9.8061. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while MVC Capital's is 1.8451. This would suggest that MVC 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).
