Is Lennar Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

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.
