Is LTC Properties under- or over-valued?
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.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-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.

Shorting LTC Properties shares
There are currently 1.1 million LTC Properties shares held short by investors – that's known as LTC Properties's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% down from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting LTC Properties shares can be evaluated.
LTC Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
LTC Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LTC Properties shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LTC Properties shares traded daily (recently around 295802.61096606). LTC Properties's SIR currently stands at 3.83. In other words for every 100,000 LTC Properties shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3830 shares are currently held short.
However LTC Properties's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LTC Properties shares, or, against the total number of tradable LTC Properties shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LTC Properties's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LTC Properties shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0294% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LTC Properties shares, roughly 29 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 LTC Properties.

LTC Properties share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 32.91% of net profits
Recently LTC Properties has paid out, on average, around 32.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.86% 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 5.86% 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 29 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 August 2021 (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 $30.6709 up to $43.69. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
