Is SLR Senior Investment stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

SLR Senior Investment's P/E ratio

SLR Senior 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 13x. In other words, SLR Senior Investment shares trade at around 13x 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.

SLR Senior Investment's PEG ratio

SLR Senior Investment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.55. 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 Senior 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 Senior Investment share dividends

41%

Dividend payout ratio: 40.82% of net profits

Recently SLR Senior Investment has paid out, on average, around 40.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SLR Senior Investment shareholders could enjoy a 8.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SLR Senior Investment's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

While SLR Senior Investment's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that SLR Senior Investment may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

SLR Senior Investment's most recent dividend payout was on 1 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

SLR Senior Investment share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SLR Senior Investment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.0509 up to $15.8638. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SUNS.US volatility(beta: 1.3)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 Senior Investment's is 1.3021. This would suggest that SLR Senior 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).
