Is First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC under- or over-valued?

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