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 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 "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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 67,398 WhiteHorse Finance shares held short by investors – that's known as WhiteHorse Finance's "short interest". This figure is 6.7% up from 63,164 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting WhiteHorse Finance shares can be evaluated.
WhiteHorse Finance's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WhiteHorse Finance shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WhiteHorse Finance shares traded daily (recently around 100594.02985075). WhiteHorse Finance's SIR currently stands at 0.67. In other words for every 100,000 WhiteHorse Finance shares traded daily on the market, roughly 670 shares are currently held short.
However WhiteHorse Finance's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WhiteHorse Finance shares, or, against the total number of tradable WhiteHorse Finance shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WhiteHorse Finance's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WhiteHorse Finance shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0046% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WhiteHorse Finance 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 WhiteHorse Finance.

Dividend payout ratio: 91.05% of net profits
Recently WhiteHorse Finance has paid out, on average, around 91.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.68% 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 10.68% 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 5 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, WhiteHorse Finance's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.7578 up to $14.0735. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
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 1.6567. 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).
