Is Portman Ridge Finance stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Portman Ridge Finance's P/E ratio

Portman Ridge Finance's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 90x. In other words, Portman Ridge Finance shares trade at around 90x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Portman Ridge Finance share dividends

78%

Dividend payout ratio: 77.95% of net profits

Recently Portman Ridge Finance has paid out, on average, around 77.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Portman Ridge Finance shareholders could enjoy a 12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Portman Ridge Finance's case, that would currently equate to about $2.51 per share.

Portman Ridge Finance'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.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Portman Ridge Finance's shares ever split?

Portman Ridge Finance's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 26 August 2021. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Portman Ridge Finance shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Portman Ridge Finance shares which in turn could have impacted Portman Ridge Finance's share price.

Portman Ridge Finance share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Portman Ridge Finance's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.47 up to $23.849. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PTMN.US volatility(beta: 0.91)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 Portman Ridge Finance's is 0.9149. This would suggest that Portman Ridge Finance's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
