Is SLR Investment stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 79x. In other words, SLR Investment shares trade at around 79x 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.

SLR Investment share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 39.05% of net profits
Recently SLR Investment has paid out, on average, around 39.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 12.23% 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 12.23% 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 fairly standard, it's worth remembering that SLR Investment may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
SLR Investment's most recent dividend payout was on 5 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 September 2022 (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 $13.25 up to $18.174. 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 SLR Investment's is 1.0475. This would suggest that SLR Investment's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
