Is Rand Capital stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Rand Capital stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Rand Capital's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Rand Capital's P/E ratio
Rand 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 38x. In other words, Rand Capital shares trade at around 38x 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.

Rand Capital share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.59% of net profits
Recently Rand Capital has paid out, on average, around 1.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rand Capital shareholders could enjoy a 4.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rand Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
While Rand Capital's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Rand Capital is investing more in its future growth.
Rand Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Rand Capital's shares ever split?
Rand Capital's shares were split on a 1:9 basis on 21 May 2020. So if you had owned 9 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 Rand Capital shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 800% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rand Capital shares which in turn could have impacted Rand Capital's share price.
Rand Capital share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Rand Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.9038 up to $18.6035. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Rand Capital's is 0.3256. This would suggest that Rand Capital's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
