Is Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation's P/E ratio

Oaktree Strategic Income 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 38x. In other words, Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation shares trade at around 38x recent earnings.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 65978.260869565). Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.23. In other words for every 100,000 Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 230 shares are currently held short.

However Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0007% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation 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 Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation.
