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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Highwoods 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.

Highwoods Properties share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 72.99% of net profits
Recently Highwoods Properties has paid out, on average, around 72.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Highwoods Properties shareholders could enjoy a 7.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Highwoods Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.
Highwoods 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.
Highwoods Properties's most recent dividend payout was on 12 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Highwoods Properties share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Highwoods Properties's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.24 up to $45.7806. 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 Highwoods Properties's is 1.1003. This would suggest that Highwoods Properties's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
