Is New Mountain Finance Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

New Mountain Finance Corporation's P/E ratio

New Mountain Finance 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 6x. In other words, New Mountain Finance Corporation 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.

New Mountain Finance Corporation share dividends

In New Mountain Finance Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

New Mountain Finance Corporation'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.
