Is SLR Senior Investment under- or over-valued?

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 6x. In other words, SLR Senior Investment shares trade at around 6x 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.

Shorting SLR Senior Investment shares

There are currently 129,784 SLR Senior Investment shares held short by investors – that's known as SLR Senior Investment's "short interest". This figure is 13.8% up from 114,084 last month.

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

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

SLR Senior Investment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SLR Senior Investment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SLR Senior Investment shares traded daily (recently around 41865.806451613). SLR Senior Investment's SIR currently stands at 3.1. In other words for every 100,000 SLR Senior Investment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3100 shares are currently held short.

However SLR Senior Investment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SLR Senior Investment shares, or, against the total number of tradable SLR Senior Investment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SLR Senior Investment's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SLR Senior Investment shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0086% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SLR Senior Investment shares, roughly 9 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 Senior Investment.

SLR Senior Investment share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 50% of net profits

Recently SLR Senior Investment has paid out, on average, around 50% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.8% 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 7.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SLR Senior Investment's case, that would currently equate to about $1.218 per share.

SLR Senior Investment'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.

SLR Senior Investment's most recent dividend payout was on 2 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 July 2021 (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 $11.5285 up to $15.9958. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SUNS.US volatility(beta: 1.41)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 1.4108. 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).
