Is Lexington Realty Trust under- or over-valued?

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 P/E ratio

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 16x. In other words, Lexington Realty Trust shares trade at around 16x 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 PEG ratio

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

Lexington Realty Trust's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $264.7 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Lexington Realty Trust's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Lexington Realty Trust shares

There are currently 24.4 million Lexington Realty Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Lexington Realty Trust's "short interest". This figure is 15.1% down from 28.8 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)

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 2.1 million). Lexington Realty Trust's SIR currently stands at 11.63. In other words for every 100,000 Lexington Realty Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11630 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 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lexington Realty Trust shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0898% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lexington Realty Trust shares, roughly 90 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Lexington Realty Trust.

Lexington Realty Trust share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 55.13% of net profits

Recently Lexington Realty Trust has paid out, on average, around 55.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lexington Realty Trust shareholders could enjoy a 2.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lexington Realty Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $0.427 per share.

Lexington Realty 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.

Lexington Realty Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Lexington Realty Trust's shares ever split?

Lexington Realty Trust's shares were split on a 281:271 basis on 22 September 2009. So if you had owned 271 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 281 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lexington Realty Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lexington Realty Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Lexington Realty Trust's share price.

Lexington Realty Trust share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lexington Realty Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.4646 up to $14.67. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LXP.US volatility(beta: 0.64)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
