Is Prologis under- or over-valued?
Valuing Prologis stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Prologis's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Prologis's P/E ratio
Prologis's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 61x. In other words, Prologis shares trade at around 61x recent earnings.
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.
Prologis's PEG ratio
Prologis's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 13.5015. 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 Prologis's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Prologis's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Prologis's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$4.8 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||34.85%|
|Gross profit TTM||$3.6 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||1.87%|

Shorting Prologis shares
There are currently 9.4 million Prologis shares held short by investors – that's known as Prologis's "short interest". This figure is 5.7% up from 8.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Prologis shares can be evaluated.
Prologis's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Prologis's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Prologis shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Prologis shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). Prologis's SIR currently stands at 3.38. In other words for every 100,000 Prologis shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3380 shares are currently held short.
However Prologis's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Prologis shares, or, against the total number of tradable Prologis shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Prologis's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Prologis shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0128% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Prologis shares, roughly 13 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 Prologis.

Prologis share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 51.11% of net profits
Recently Prologis has paid out, on average, around 51.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Prologis shareholders could enjoy a 1.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Prologis's case, that would currently equate to about $2.42 per share.
Prologis'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.
Prologis's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
