Is Chimera Investment Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Chimera Investment Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Chimera Investment Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Chimera Investment Corporation's P/E ratio
Chimera Investment 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 5x. In other words, Chimera Investment Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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.

Chimera Investment Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 80.12% of net profits
Recently Chimera Investment Corporation has paid out, on average, around 80.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chimera Investment Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 8.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chimera Investment Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.26 per share.
Chimera Investment Corporation'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.
Chimera Investment Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 26 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Chimera Investment Corporation's shares ever split?
Chimera Investment Corporation's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 6 April 2015. So if you had owned 5 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 Chimera Investment Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chimera Investment Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Chimera Investment Corporation's share price.
Chimera Investment Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Chimera Investment Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.1532 up to $16.4949. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Chimera Investment Corporation's is 0.9747. This would suggest that Chimera Investment Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
