Is Oxford Lane Capital stock undervalued or overvalued?

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 4x. In other words, Oxford Lane Capital shares trade at around 4x 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.

Oxford Lane Capital share dividends

83%

Dividend payout ratio: 82.87% of net profits

Recently Oxford Lane Capital has paid out, on average, around 82.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 17.41% 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 17.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oxford Lane Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.833 per share.

Oxford Lane 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.

Oxford Lane Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 29 March 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 October 2022 (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 $4.83 up to $7.6796. 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 1.1258. 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).
