Is Capstead Mortgage Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Capstead Mortgage Corporation's P/E ratio

Capstead Mortgage Corporation'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, Capstead Mortgage Corporation 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.

Capstead Mortgage Corporation's PEG ratio

Capstead Mortgage Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.28. 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 Capstead Mortgage Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Capstead Mortgage Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.02% of net profits

Recently Capstead Mortgage Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Capstead Mortgage Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Capstead Mortgage Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While Capstead Mortgage Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Capstead Mortgage Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Capstead Mortgage Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 17 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Capstead Mortgage Corporation's shares ever split?

Capstead Mortgage Corporation's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 1 July 2001. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Capstead Mortgage Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Capstead Mortgage Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Capstead Mortgage Corporation's share price.

Capstead Mortgage Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Capstead Mortgage Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.9493 up to $6.9509. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMO.US volatility(beta: 1.54)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 Capstead Mortgage Corporation's is 1.5439. This would suggest that Capstead Mortgage Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
