Is Great Elm Capital Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Great Elm Capital Corporation's P/E ratio

Great Elm 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 33x. In other words, Great Elm Capital Corporation shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

However, indirectly, the new 2.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Great Elm Capital Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Great Elm Capital Corporation's share price.
