Is Garrison Capital under- or over-valued?

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

Garrison Capital's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Garrison Capital's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Garrison Capital share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 119.05% of net profits

Recently Garrison Capital has paid out, on average, around 119.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Garrison Capital shareholders could enjoy a 5.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Garrison Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

Garrison Capital'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.

Garrison Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 25 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

GARS.US volatility(beta: 1.63)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Garrison Capital's is 1.6321. This would suggest that Garrison Capital's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
