Is Kilroy Realty Corporation under- or over-valued?

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 Kilroy Realty Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Kilroy Realty Corporation shares

There are currently 3.5 million Kilroy Realty Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Kilroy Realty Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 19.4% down from 4.3 million last month.

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

Kilroy Realty Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kilroy Realty Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kilroy Realty Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kilroy Realty Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 961493.31476323). Kilroy Realty Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.59. In other words for every 100,000 Kilroy Realty Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3590 shares are currently held short.

However Kilroy Realty Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kilroy Realty Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kilroy Realty Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kilroy Realty Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kilroy Realty Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0397% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kilroy Realty Corporation shares, roughly 40 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 Kilroy Realty Corporation.

Kilroy Realty Corporation share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 48.65% of net profits

Recently Kilroy Realty Corporation has paid out, on average, around 48.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kilroy Realty Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kilroy Realty Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.485 per share.

While Kilroy Realty Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Kilroy Realty Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Kilroy Realty Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 13 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Kilroy Realty Corporation's shares ever split?

Kilroy Realty Corporation's shares were split on a 5:7 basis on 21 February 2013. So if you had owned 7 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kilroy Realty Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 40% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kilroy Realty Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kilroy Realty Corporation's share price.
