Is SLR Investment under- or over-valued?

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

SLR Investment's P/E ratio

SLR Investment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 50x. In other words, SLR Investment shares trade at around 50x 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.

SLR Investment's PEG ratio

SLR Investment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.65. 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 SLR Investment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting SLR Investment shares

There are currently 141,136 SLR Investment shares held short by investors – that's known as SLR Investment's "short interest". This figure is 22.3% up from 115,412 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SLR Investment shares can be evaluated.

SLR Investment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SLR Investment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SLR Investment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SLR Investment shares traded daily (recently around 196022.22222222). SLR Investment's SIR currently stands at 0.72. In other words for every 100,000 SLR Investment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 720 shares are currently held short.

However SLR Investment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SLR Investment shares, or, against the total number of tradable SLR Investment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SLR Investment's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SLR Investment shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0038% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SLR Investment shares, roughly 4 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 SLR Investment.

SLR Investment share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.16% of net profits

Recently SLR Investment has paid out, on average, around 1.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SLR Investment shareholders could enjoy a 9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SLR Investment's case, that would currently equate to about $1.64 per share.

While SLR Investment's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that SLR Investment is investing more in its future growth.

SLR Investment's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

SLR Investment share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SLR Investment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.5299 up to $19.2201. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SLRC.US volatility(beta: 1.34)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 SLR Investment's is 1.3398. This would suggest that SLR Investment's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
