A possible reason for Carlyle’s higher valuation could be its one-year price target being higher than its current market price. Wall Street analysts have given Carlyle a one-year target of $27.50, which implies an 8.7% rise from its current price of $25.30.

Further rise in valuation

Carlyle could see its valuation rise further due to its quarterly dividend payout, which has been increasing. The company declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share in May 2017, $0.42 per share in August 2017, and $0.56 per share in October 2017.

Carlyle’s rising EPS (earnings per share) estimates for 4Q17 could also boost the company’s valuation. A few days ago, analysts had projected 4Q17 EPS of $0.53, while their current estimate is $0.55.
