Is SFL Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

SFL Corporation's P/E ratio

SFL 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 7x. In other words, SFL Corporation shares trade at around 7x 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.

SFL Corporation's EBITDA

SFL Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $377.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a SFL Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

SFL Corporation share dividends

53%

Dividend payout ratio: 52.83% of net profits

Recently SFL Corporation has paid out, on average, around 52.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SFL Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 7.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SFL Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.

SFL Corporation'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.

SFL Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 28 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

SFL Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SFL Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.1487 up to $11.3474. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SFL.US volatility(beta: 0.77)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 SFL Corporation's is 0.7713. This would suggest that SFL Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
