Is THL Credit under- or over-valued?

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

THL Credit's PEG ratio

THL Credit's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.62. 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 THL Credit'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 THL Credit shares

There are currently 94,658 THL Credit shares held short by investors – that's known as THL Credit's "short interest". This figure is 5.4% down from 100,023 last month.

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

THL Credit's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

THL Credit's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of THL Credit shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of THL Credit shares traded daily (recently around 84516.071428571). THL Credit's SIR currently stands at 1.12. In other words for every 100,000 THL Credit shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1120 shares are currently held short.

However THL Credit's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of THL Credit shares, or, against the total number of tradable THL Credit shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case THL Credit's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 THL Credit shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0047% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable THL Credit 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 THL Credit.

THL Credit share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 124.39% of net profits

Recently THL Credit has paid out, on average, around 124.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 21.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), THL Credit shareholders could enjoy a 21.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In THL Credit's case, that would currently equate to about $0.73 per share.

THL Credit'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.

THL Credit's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

THL Credit share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, THL Credit's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.5085 up to $6.0145. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TCRD.US volatility(beta: 1.59)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 THL Credit's is 1.5923. This would suggest that THL Credit's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
