Is Gladstone Capital Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Gladstone Capital Corporation's P/E ratio

Gladstone Capital 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 4x. In other words, Gladstone Capital Corporation shares trade at around 4x 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.

Gladstone Capital Corporation's PEG ratio

Gladstone Capital Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8775. 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 Gladstone Capital 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.

Gladstone Capital Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 32.5% of net profits

Recently Gladstone Capital Corporation has paid out, on average, around 32.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Gladstone Capital Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 7.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Gladstone Capital Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.78 per share.

While Gladstone Capital Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Gladstone Capital Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Gladstone Capital Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Gladstone Capital Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gladstone Capital Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.4074 up to $12.3685. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GLAD.US volatility(beta: 1.37)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 Gladstone Capital Corporation's is 1.374. This would suggest that Gladstone Capital Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
