Valuing CareTrust REIT stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CareTrust REIT's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
CareTrust REIT's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, CareTrust REIT shares trade at around 23x 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.
CareTrust REIT's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.26. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into CareTrust REIT's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
CareTrust REIT's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $161.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a CareTrust REIT's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.5 million CareTrust REIT shares held short by investors – that's known as CareTrust REIT's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 2.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CareTrust REIT shares can be evaluated.
CareTrust REIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CareTrust REIT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CareTrust REIT shares traded daily (recently around 483556.32183908). CareTrust REIT's SIR currently stands at 5.22. In other words for every 100,000 CareTrust REIT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5220 shares are currently held short.
However CareTrust REIT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CareTrust REIT shares, or, against the total number of tradable CareTrust REIT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CareTrust REIT's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CareTrust REIT shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0265% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CareTrust REIT shares, roughly 27 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against CareTrust REIT.

Dividend payout ratio: 81.64% of net profits
Recently CareTrust REIT has paid out, on average, around 81.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CareTrust REIT shareholders could enjoy a 5.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CareTrust REIT's case, that would currently equate to about $1.03 per share.
CareTrust REIT'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.
CareTrust REIT's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, CareTrust REIT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.1077 up to $24.2644. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while CareTrust REIT's is 1.1079. This would suggest that CareTrust REIT's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
