Is NexPoint Real Estate Finance under- or over-valued?

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

NexPoint Real Estate Finance's P/E ratio

NexPoint Real Estate Finance's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares trade at around 7x 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.

Shorting NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares

There are currently 9,272 NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares held short by investors – that's known as NexPoint Real Estate Finance's "short interest". This figure is 71.9% up from 5,393 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares can be evaluated.

NexPoint Real Estate Finance's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NexPoint Real Estate Finance's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares traded daily (recently around 35661.538461538). NexPoint Real Estate Finance's SIR currently stands at 0.26. In other words for every 100,000 NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares traded daily on the market, roughly 260 shares are currently held short.

However NexPoint Real Estate Finance's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares, or, against the total number of tradable NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NexPoint Real Estate Finance's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0019% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NexPoint Real Estate Finance shares, roughly 2 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 NexPoint Real Estate Finance.

43%

Dividend payout ratio: 42.68% of net profits

Recently NexPoint Real Estate Finance has paid out, on average, around 42.68% of net profits as dividends.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NexPoint Real Estate Finance shareholders could enjoy a 9.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NexPoint Real Estate Finance's case, that would currently equate to about $1.675 per share.

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

NexPoint Real Estate Finance's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
