Is Fidus Investment Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Fidus Investment Corporation's P/E ratio

Fidus 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, Fidus 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.

Fidus Investment Corporation's PEG ratio

Fidus Investment Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.59. 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 Fidus Investment 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.

Fidus Investment Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 92.47% of net profits

Recently Fidus Investment Corporation has paid out, on average, around 92.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fidus Investment Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 7.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fidus Investment Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.24 per share.

Fidus 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.

Fidus Investment Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
