Is Getty Realty under- or over-valued?

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

Getty Realty's P/E ratio

Getty Realty's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Getty Realty shares trade at around 19x 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.

Getty Realty's EBITDA

Getty Realty's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $105.2 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Getty Realty's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Getty Realty shares

There are currently 861,598 Getty Realty shares held short by investors – that's known as Getty Realty's "short interest". This figure is 16.9% up from 737,219 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Getty Realty shares can be evaluated.

Getty Realty's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Getty Realty's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Getty Realty shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Getty Realty shares traded daily (recently around 199906.72853828). Getty Realty's SIR currently stands at 4.31. In other words for every 100,000 Getty Realty shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4310 shares are currently held short.

However Getty Realty's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Getty Realty shares, or, against the total number of tradable Getty Realty shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Getty Realty's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Getty Realty shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0315% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Getty Realty shares, roughly 32 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 Getty Realty.

Getty Realty share dividends

56%

Dividend payout ratio: 56.3% of net profits

Recently Getty Realty has paid out, on average, around 56.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Getty Realty shareholders could enjoy a 5.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Getty Realty's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.

Getty Realty'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.

Getty Realty's most recent dividend payout was on 7 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Getty Realty's shares ever split?

Getty Realty's shares were split on a 10000:7561 basis on 31 March 1997. So if you had owned 7561 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Getty Realty shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 24.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Getty Realty shares which in turn could have impacted Getty Realty's share price.

Getty Realty share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Getty Realty's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.0686 up to $31.68. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GTY.US volatility(beta: 0.8)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 Getty Realty's is 0.7965. This would suggest that Getty Realty's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
