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.

Shorting Brookfield Property REIT shares

There are currently 14.3 million Brookfield Property REIT shares held short by investors – that's known as Brookfield Property REIT's "short interest". This figure is 2.4% down from 14.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Brookfield Property REIT shares can be evaluated.

Brookfield Property REIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Brookfield Property REIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Brookfield Property REIT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Brookfield Property REIT shares traded daily (recently around 513931.68709445). Brookfield Property REIT's SIR currently stands at 27.74. In other words for every 100,000 Brookfield Property REIT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 27740 shares are currently held short.

However Brookfield Property REIT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brookfield Property REIT shares, or, against the total number of tradable Brookfield Property REIT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brookfield Property REIT's short interest could be expressed as 0.36% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Brookfield Property REIT shares in existence, roughly 360 shares are currently held short) or 0.4673% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Brookfield Property REIT shares, roughly 467 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Brookfield Property REIT.

Dividend payout ratio: 19.66% of net profits

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brookfield Property REIT shareholders could enjoy a 8.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brookfield Property REIT's case, that would currently equate to about $1.33 per share.

While Brookfield Property REIT's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Brookfield Property REIT is investing more in its future growth.
