Is Stellus Capital Investment stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Stellus Capital Investment stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Stellus Capital Investment's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Stellus Capital Investment's P/E ratio
Stellus Capital 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 7x. In other words, Stellus Capital Investment shares trade at around 7x 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.

Stellus Capital Investment share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 43.89% of net profits
Recently Stellus Capital Investment has paid out, on average, around 43.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stellus Capital Investment shareholders could enjoy a 10% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stellus Capital Investment's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.
While Stellus Capital Investment's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Stellus Capital Investment may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Stellus Capital Investment's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Stellus Capital Investment's shares ever split?
Stellus Capital Investment's shares were split on a 10043:1000 basis on 12 January 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10043 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stellus Capital Investment shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stellus Capital Investment shares which in turn could have impacted Stellus Capital Investment's share price.
Stellus Capital Investment share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Stellus Capital Investment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.9125 up to $13.8249. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Stellus Capital Investment's is 1.1815. This would suggest that Stellus Capital 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).
