Is Source Capital under- or over-valued?

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 5x. In other words, Source Capital shares trade at around 5x 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.

Shorting Source Capital shares

There are currently 2,388 Source Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Source Capital's "short interest". This figure is 71.3% down from 8,309 last month.

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

Source Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Source Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Source Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Source Capital shares traded daily (recently around 14047.058823529). Source Capital's SIR currently stands at 0.17. In other words for every 100,000 Source Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 170 shares are currently held short.

However Source Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Source Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Source Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Source Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Source Capital shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0016% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Source Capital shares, roughly 2 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 Source Capital.
