Valuing EPR Properties stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EPR Properties's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EPR Properties's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 200x. In other words, EPR Properties shares trade at around 200x recent earnings.
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.
EPR Properties's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.93. 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 EPR 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.
EPR Properties's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$455 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a EPR Properties's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6.4 million EPR Properties shares held short by investors – that's known as EPR Properties's "short interest". This figure is 17.4% down from 7.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting EPR Properties shares can be evaluated.
EPR Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EPR Properties shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EPR Properties shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). EPR Properties's SIR currently stands at 6.24. In other words for every 100,000 EPR Properties shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6240 shares are currently held short.
However EPR Properties's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EPR Properties shares, or, against the total number of tradable EPR Properties shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EPR Properties's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EPR Properties shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1248% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EPR Properties shares, roughly 125 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 EPR Properties.

Dividend payout ratio: 606% of net profits
Recently EPR Properties has paid out, on average, around 606% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 17.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EPR Properties shareholders could enjoy a 17.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EPR Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $4.59 per share.
EPR 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.
EPR Properties's most recent dividend payout was on 15 May 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, EPR Properties's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.5584 up to $79.8. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while EPR Properties's is 1.4832. This would suggest that EPR Properties's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
