Is Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC's P/E ratio

Triplepoint Venture Growth 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 9x. In other words, Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC shares trade at around 9x 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.

Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC's PEG ratio

Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.6875. 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 Triplepoint Venture Growth 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.

91%

Dividend payout ratio: 90.57% of net profits

Recently Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC has paid out, on average, around 90.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC shareholders could enjoy a 11.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.

Triplepoint Venture Growth 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.

TPVG.US volatility(beta: 1.68)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC's is 1.6832. This would suggest that Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
