Is Carlyle Secured Lending stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Carlyle Secured Lending's P/E ratio

Carlyle Secured Lending'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, Carlyle Secured Lending 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.

Carlyle Secured Lending's PEG ratio

Carlyle Secured Lending's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.54. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Carlyle Secured Lending's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Carlyle Secured Lending share dividends

98%

Dividend payout ratio: 98.13% of net profits

Recently Carlyle Secured Lending has paid out, on average, around 98.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Carlyle Secured Lending shareholders could enjoy a 10.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Carlyle Secured Lending's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.

Carlyle Secured Lending'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.

Carlyle Secured Lending'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").

Carlyle Secured Lending share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Carlyle Secured Lending's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.14 up to $14.94. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CGBD.US volatility(beta: 1.8)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 Carlyle Secured Lending's is 1.8033. This would suggest that Carlyle Secured Lending's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
