Is City Office REIT under- or over-valued?

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 City Office REIT shares

There are currently 786,064 City Office REIT shares held short by investors – that's known as City Office REIT's "short interest". This figure is 73.9% up from 452,141 last month.

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

City Office REIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

City Office REIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of City Office REIT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of City Office REIT shares traded daily (recently around 649639.66942149). City Office REIT's SIR currently stands at 1.21. In other words for every 100,000 City Office REIT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1210 shares are currently held short.

However City Office REIT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of City Office REIT shares, or, against the total number of tradable City Office REIT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case City Office REIT's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 City Office REIT shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0236% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable City Office REIT shares, roughly 24 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against City Office REIT.

City Office REIT share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 44.44% of net profits

Recently City Office REIT has paid out, on average, around 44.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), City Office REIT shareholders could enjoy a 3.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In City Office REIT's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While City Office REIT's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that City Office REIT may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

City Office REIT's most recent dividend payout was on 21 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

City Office REIT share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, City Office REIT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.8248 up to $19.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CIO.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while City Office REIT's is 1.5159. This would suggest that City Office REIT's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
