Is Equus Total Return under- or over-valued?
Valuing Equus Total Return stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Equus Total Return's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Equus Total Return's P/E ratio
Equus Total Return's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 521x. In other words, Equus Total Return shares trade at around 521x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Have Equus Total Return's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Equus Total Return shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Equus Total Return shares which in turn could have impacted Equus Total Return's share price.
Equus Total Return share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Equus Total Return's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.6 up to $2.91. 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 Equus Total Return's is 1.1004. This would suggest that Equus Total Return's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
