Is TCG BDC under- or over-valued?

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

TCG BDC's P/E ratio

TCG BDC'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, TCG BDC 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.

TCG BDC's PEG ratio

TCG BDC'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 TCG BDC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting TCG BDC shares

There are currently 238,549 TCG BDC shares held short by investors – that's known as TCG BDC's "short interest". This figure is 27.6% down from 329,305 last month.

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

TCG BDC's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TCG BDC's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TCG BDC shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TCG BDC shares traded daily (recently around 192378.22580645). TCG BDC's SIR currently stands at 1.24. In other words for every 100,000 TCG BDC shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1240 shares are currently held short.

However TCG BDC's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TCG BDC shares, or, against the total number of tradable TCG BDC shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TCG BDC's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TCG BDC shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0045% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TCG BDC shares, roughly 5 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 TCG BDC.

TCG BDC share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 98.77% of net profits

Recently TCG BDC has paid out, on average, around 98.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TCG BDC shareholders could enjoy a 9.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TCG BDC's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.

TCG BDC'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.

TCG BDC's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

TCG BDC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TCG BDC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.1087 up to $13.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CGBD.US volatility(beta: 2.1)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 TCG BDC's is 2.1016. This would suggest that TCG BDC's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
