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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into OFS 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.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), OFS Capital Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 10.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In OFS Capital Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.91 per share.
OFS Capital 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.
