Is EastGroup Properties stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing EastGroup Properties stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EastGroup Properties's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
EastGroup Properties's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into EastGroup Properties's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

EastGroup Properties share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 66.56% of net profits
Recently EastGroup Properties has paid out, on average, around 66.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EastGroup Properties shareholders could enjoy a 2.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EastGroup Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $3.89 per share.
EastGroup Properties'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.
EastGroup Properties's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have EastGroup Properties's shares ever split?
EastGroup Properties's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 7 April 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your EastGroup Properties shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EastGroup Properties shares which in turn could have impacted EastGroup Properties's share price.
EastGroup Properties share price volatility
