Is New Mountain Finance Corporation under- or over-valued?

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 5x. In other words, New Mountain Finance 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.

Shorting New Mountain Finance Corporation shares

There are currently 515,758 New Mountain Finance Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as New Mountain Finance Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% down from 538,278 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting New Mountain Finance Corporation shares can be evaluated.

New Mountain Finance Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

New Mountain Finance Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of New Mountain Finance Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of New Mountain Finance Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 299859.30232558). New Mountain Finance Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.72. In other words for every 100,000 New Mountain Finance Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1720 shares are currently held short.

However New Mountain Finance Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of New Mountain Finance Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable New Mountain Finance Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case New Mountain Finance Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 New Mountain Finance Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0059% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable New Mountain Finance Corporation shares, roughly 6 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 New Mountain Finance Corporation.
