Is LTC Properties stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

LTC Properties's P/E ratio

LTC Properties'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, LTC Properties 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.

LTC Properties's PEG ratio

LTC Properties's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.41. 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 LTC Properties's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

LTC Properties's EBITDA

LTC Properties's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $122.2 million.

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

LTC Properties share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.2% of net profits

Recently LTC Properties has paid out, on average, around 32.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), LTC Properties shareholders could enjoy a 6.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In LTC Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $2.28 per share.

While LTC Properties's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that LTC Properties may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

LTC Properties's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have LTC Properties's shares ever split?

LTC Properties's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 30 September 1998. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your LTC Properties shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for LTC Properties shares which in turn could have impacted LTC Properties's share price.

LTC Properties share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, LTC Properties's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.5461 up to $44.3814. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LTC.US volatility(beta: 0.95)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 LTC Properties's is 0.9484. This would suggest that LTC Properties's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
