That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Medical Properties Trust's PEG ratio
Medical Properties Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.93. 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 Medical Properties 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.

Medical Properties Trust share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 65.88% of net profits
Recently Medical Properties Trust has paid out, on average, around 65.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Medical Properties Trust shareholders could enjoy a 4.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Medical Properties Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $1.11 per share.
Medical Properties 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.
Medical Properties Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
