Is Oxford Lane Capital under- or over-valued?

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

Oxford Lane Capital's P/E ratio

Oxford Lane 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 3x. In other words, Oxford Lane Capital shares trade at around 3x 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 Oxford Lane Capital shares

There are currently 507,889 Oxford Lane Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Oxford Lane Capital's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% down from 573,776 last month.

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

Oxford Lane Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Oxford Lane Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oxford Lane Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oxford Lane Capital shares traded daily (recently around 940535.18518519). Oxford Lane Capital's SIR currently stands at 0.54. In other words for every 100,000 Oxford Lane Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 540 shares are currently held short.

However Oxford Lane Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oxford Lane Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oxford Lane Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oxford Lane Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oxford Lane Capital shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0044% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oxford Lane Capital shares, roughly 4 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 Oxford Lane Capital.

Oxford Lane Capital share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 12.44% of net profits

Recently Oxford Lane Capital has paid out, on average, around 12.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Oxford Lane Capital shareholders could enjoy a 10.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oxford Lane Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $1.012 per share.

While Oxford Lane Capital's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Oxford Lane Capital is investing more in its future growth.

Oxford Lane Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 28 March 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Oxford Lane Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Oxford Lane Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.7193 up to $7.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OXLC.US volatility(beta: 1.13)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 Oxford Lane Capital's is 1.1259. This would suggest that Oxford Lane Capital'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).
