Is Claros Mortgage Trust stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Claros Mortgage Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Claros Mortgage Trust's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Claros Mortgage Trust's P/E ratio

Claros Mortgage Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Claros Mortgage Trust shares trade at around 12x 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.

However, Claros Mortgage Trust's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the reit-mortgage industry or those of similar companies.

Claros Mortgage Trust share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 108.03% of net profits

Recently Claros Mortgage Trust has paid out, on average, around 108.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Claros Mortgage Trust shareholders could enjoy a 10.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Claros Mortgage Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $0.35 per share.

Claros Mortgage Trust'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.

Claros Mortgage Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Claros Mortgage Trust's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
