Is Goldman Sachs BDC under- or over-valued?

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

Goldman Sachs BDC's P/E ratio

Goldman Sachs BDC's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Goldman Sachs BDC shares trade at around 6x 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.

Goldman Sachs BDC's PEG ratio

Goldman Sachs BDC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.15. 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 Goldman Sachs BDC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Goldman Sachs BDC share dividends

57%

Dividend payout ratio: 56.86% of net profits

Recently Goldman Sachs BDC has paid out, on average, around 56.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Goldman Sachs BDC shareholders could enjoy a 9.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Goldman Sachs BDC's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.

Goldman Sachs BDC'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.

Goldman Sachs BDC's most recent dividend payout was on 27 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Goldman Sachs BDC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Goldman Sachs BDC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.3716 up to $19.94. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GSBD.US volatility(beta: 1.47)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Goldman Sachs BDC's is 1.4714. This would suggest that Goldman Sachs BDC's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
