Is istar stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

istar's P/E ratio

istar's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 132x. In other words, istar shares trade at around 132x 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.

istar's EBITDA

istar's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $92.6 million.

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

istar share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 4.78% of net profits

Recently istar has paid out, on average, around 4.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), istar shareholders could enjoy a 5.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In istar's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

istar's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have istar's shares ever split?

istar's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 18 June 1998. So if you had owned 6 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your istar shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for istar shares which in turn could have impacted istar's share price.

istar share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, istar's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.64 up to $27.0305. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

STAR.US volatility(beta: 1.09)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 istar's is 1.0915. This would suggest that istar'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).
