Is KKR Real Estate Finance Trust stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing KKR Real Estate Finance Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of KKR Real Estate Finance Trust's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
KKR Real Estate Finance Trust's P/E ratio
KKR Real Estate Finance Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, KKR Real Estate Finance Trust shares trade at around 9x 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.
KKR Real Estate Finance Trust's PEG ratio
KKR Real Estate Finance Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.13. 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 KKR Real Estate Finance Trust's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

In KKR Real Estate Finance Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $1.72 per share.
KKR Real Estate Finance Trust'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.
