Is SuRo Capital under- or over-valued?

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

SuRo Capital's P/E ratio

SuRo 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 64x. In other words, SuRo Capital shares trade at around 64x 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.

Shorting SuRo Capital shares

There are currently 978,508 SuRo Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as SuRo Capital's "short interest". This figure is 42.3% down from 1.7 million last month.

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

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

SuRo Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SuRo Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SuRo Capital shares traded daily (recently around 499238.7755102). SuRo Capital's SIR currently stands at 1.96. In other words for every 100,000 SuRo Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1960 shares are currently held short.

However SuRo Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SuRo Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable SuRo Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SuRo Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SuRo Capital shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0465% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SuRo Capital shares, roughly 47 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 SuRo Capital.

SuRo Capital share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.31% of net profits

Recently SuRo Capital has paid out, on average, around 29.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SuRo Capital shareholders could enjoy a 6.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SuRo Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

While SuRo Capital's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that SuRo Capital may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

SuRo Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 14 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

SuRo Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SuRo Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.2805 up to $16.15. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SSSS.US volatility(beta: 1.55)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 SuRo Capital's is 1.5521. This would suggest that SuRo Capital's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
