Is Realty Income stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Realty Income's P/E ratio

Realty Income's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 68x. In other words, Realty Income shares trade at around 68x 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.

Realty Income's PEG ratio

Realty Income's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.3209. 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 Realty Income's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Realty Income's EBITDA

Realty Income's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.9 billion.

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

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Realty Income is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Realty Income share dividends

92%

Dividend payout ratio: 91.99% of net profits

Recently Realty Income has paid out, on average, around 91.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Realty Income shareholders could enjoy a 4.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Realty Income's case, that would currently equate to about $2.953 per share.

Realty Income'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.

Realty Income's most recent dividend payout was on 14 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Realty Income's shares ever split?

Realty Income's shares were split on a 1032:1000 basis on 14 November 2021. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1032 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Realty Income shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Realty Income shares which in turn could have impacted Realty Income's share price.

Realty Income share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Realty Income's shares have ranged in value from as little as $54.845 up to $73.6401. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

O.US volatility(beta: 0.79)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 Realty Income's is 0.7935. This would suggest that Realty Income's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
