Is WhiteHorse Finance stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

WhiteHorse Finance's P/E ratio

WhiteHorse Finance'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, WhiteHorse Finance 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.

WhiteHorse Finance's PEG ratio

WhiteHorse Finance's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.01. 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 WhiteHorse Finance's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

WhiteHorse Finance share dividends

86%

Dividend payout ratio: 85.82% of net profits

Recently WhiteHorse Finance has paid out, on average, around 85.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WhiteHorse Finance shareholders could enjoy a 9.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WhiteHorse Finance's case, that would currently equate to about $1.42 per share.

WhiteHorse Finance'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.

WhiteHorse Finance's most recent dividend payout was on 3 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

WhiteHorse Finance share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, WhiteHorse Finance's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.1869 up to $15.8367. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WHF.US volatility(beta: 1.47)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 WhiteHorse Finance's is 1.4739. This would suggest that WhiteHorse Finance's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
