Is Digital Realty Trust stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Digital Realty Trust share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 3.78% of net profits

Recently Digital Realty Trust has paid out, on average, around 3.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Digital Realty Trust shareholders could enjoy a 3.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Digital Realty Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $4.88 per share.

While Digital Realty Trust's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Digital Realty Trust is investing more in its future growth.

Digital Realty Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 28 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Digital Realty Trust's shares ever split?

Digital Realty Trust's shares were split on a 1000:1005 basis on 13 January 2015. So if you had owned 1005 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Digital Realty Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.5% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Digital Realty Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Digital Realty Trust's share price.

Digital Realty Trust share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Digital Realty Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $82.0785 up to $132.1207. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DLR.US volatility(beta: 0.56)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 Digital Realty Trust's is 0.5564. This would suggest that Digital Realty Trust's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
