Is Oxford Square Capital under- or over-valued?

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

Oxford Square Capital's P/E ratio

Oxford Square 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 Square 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 Square Capital shares

There are currently 294,318 Oxford Square Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Oxford Square Capital's "short interest". This figure is 51.2% up from 194,661 last month.

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

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

Oxford Square Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oxford Square Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oxford Square Capital shares traded daily (recently around 160829.50819672). Oxford Square Capital's SIR currently stands at 1.83. In other words for every 100,000 Oxford Square Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1830 shares are currently held short.

However Oxford Square Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oxford Square Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oxford Square Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oxford Square Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oxford Square Capital shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0063% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oxford Square Capital 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 Oxford Square Capital.

Oxford Square Capital share dividends

38%

Dividend payout ratio: 37.84% of net profits

Recently Oxford Square Capital has paid out, on average, around 37.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Oxford Square Capital shareholders could enjoy a 8.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oxford Square Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.42 per share.

While Oxford Square Capital's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Oxford Square Capital may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Oxford Square Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 30 December 2018. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Oxford Square Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Oxford Square Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.1061 up to $5.0782. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OXSQ.US volatility(beta: 1.37)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 Square Capital's is 1.3667. This would suggest that Oxford Square Capital's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
