Valuing Lexington Realty Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lexington Realty Trust's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lexington Realty 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 17x. In other words, Lexington Realty Trust shares trade at around 17x 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.
Lexington Realty Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.37. 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 Lexington Realty 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.
Lexington Realty Trust's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$259.3 million.

There are currently 5.9 million Lexington Realty Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Lexington Realty Trust's "short interest". This figure is 36.8% up from 4.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lexington Realty Trust shares can be evaluated.
Lexington Realty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lexington Realty Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lexington Realty Trust shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Lexington Realty Trust's SIR currently stands at 3.72. In other words for every 100,000 Lexington Realty Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3720 shares are currently held short.
However Lexington Realty Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lexington Realty Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lexington Realty Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lexington Realty Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lexington Realty Trust shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0316% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lexington Realty Trust shares, roughly 32 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 Lexington Realty Trust.
