Is PennantPark Investment Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

PennantPark Investment Corporation's P/E ratio

PennantPark Investment 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, PennantPark Investment 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.

PennantPark Investment Corporation's PEG ratio

PennantPark Investment Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.279. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into PennantPark Investment Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

PennantPark Investment Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 41.76% of net profits

Recently PennantPark Investment Corporation has paid out, on average, around 41.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PennantPark Investment Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 9.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PennantPark Investment Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

PennantPark Investment Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

PennantPark Investment Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PennantPark Investment Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.7976 up to $7.8406. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PNNT.US volatility(beta: 1.72)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while PennantPark Investment Corporation's is 1.716. This would suggest that PennantPark Investment Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
