Is Lennar Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Lennar Corporation's P/E ratio

Lennar Corporation'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, Lennar Corporation 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.

Lennar Corporation's PEG ratio

Lennar Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5987. 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 Lennar 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.

Lennar Corporation's EBITDA

Lennar Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.5 billion.

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

Shorting Lennar Corporation shares

There are currently 8.2 million Lennar Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Lennar Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 13.1% down from 9.4 million last month.

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

Lennar Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lennar Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lennar Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lennar Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Lennar Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.92. In other words for every 100,000 Lennar Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5920 shares are currently held short.

However Lennar Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lennar Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lennar Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lennar Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lennar Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0287% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lennar Corporation shares, roughly 29 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Lennar Corporation.

Lennar Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 10.07% of net profits

Recently Lennar Corporation has paid out, on average, around 10.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lennar Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lennar Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.875 per share.

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

Have Lennar Corporation's shares ever split?

Lennar Corporation's shares were split on a 1017:1000 basis on 8 November 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1017 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lennar Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lennar Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Lennar Corporation's share price.

Lennar Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lennar Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $68.8658 up to $110.3316. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LEN.US volatility(beta: 1.5)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 Lennar Corporation's is 1.5016. This would suggest that Lennar Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
