Is Source Capital stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Source Capital's P/E ratio

Source Capital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Source Capital shares trade at around 17x 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.

Source Capital share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 76.44% of net profits

Recently Source Capital has paid out, on average, around 76.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Source Capital shareholders could enjoy a 5.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Source Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $1.406 per share.

Source Capital'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.

Source Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2018. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Source Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Source Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.9175 up to $44.0954. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SOR.US volatility(beta: 0.78)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 Source Capital's is 0.775. This would suggest that Source Capital's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
