Is New Mountain Finance Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

New Mountain Finance Corporation's P/E ratio

New Mountain 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 10x. In other words, New Mountain Finance Corporation shares trade at around 10x 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.

New Mountain Finance Corporation share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 107.14% of net profits

Recently New Mountain Finance Corporation has paid out, on average, around 107.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), New Mountain Finance Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 10.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In New Mountain Finance Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

New Mountain Finance 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.

New Mountain Finance Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

New Mountain Finance Corporation share price volatility

NMFC.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 New Mountain Finance Corporation's is 1.2125. This would suggest that New Mountain 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).
