Valuing StoneCastle Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of StoneCastle Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
StoneCastle Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, StoneCastle Financial shares trade at around 31x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4,275 StoneCastle Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as StoneCastle Financial's "short interest". This figure is 20.5% up from 3,549 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting StoneCastle Financial shares can be evaluated.
StoneCastle Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of StoneCastle Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of StoneCastle Financial shares traded daily (recently around 17100). StoneCastle Financial's SIR currently stands at 0.25. In other words for every 100,000 StoneCastle Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 250 shares are currently held short.
However StoneCastle Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of StoneCastle Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable StoneCastle Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case StoneCastle Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 StoneCastle Financial shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0007% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable StoneCastle Financial shares, roughly 1 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 StoneCastle Financial.

Dividend payout ratio: 128.69% of net profits
Recently StoneCastle Financial has paid out, on average, around 128.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), StoneCastle Financial shareholders could enjoy a 7.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In StoneCastle Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.52 per share.
StoneCastle Financial'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.
