Is RPT Realty under- or over-valued?

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

RPT Realty's P/E ratio

RPT Realty's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, RPT Realty shares trade at around 11x 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.

RPT Realty's PEG ratio

RPT Realty's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.65. 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 RPT Realty's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


RPT Realty's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$104.1 million.

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

Shorting RPT Realty shares

There are currently 1.3 million RPT Realty shares held short by investors – that's known as RPT Realty's "short interest". This figure is 13.5% down from 1.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting RPT Realty shares can be evaluated.

RPT Realty's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RPT Realty's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RPT Realty shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RPT Realty shares traded daily (recently around 525268.62745098). RPT Realty's SIR currently stands at 2.55. In other words for every 100,000 RPT Realty shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2550 shares are currently held short.

However RPT Realty's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RPT Realty shares, or, against the total number of tradable RPT Realty shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RPT Realty's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RPT Realty shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0295% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RPT Realty shares, roughly 30 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 RPT Realty.

RPT Realty share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 62.86% of net profits

Recently RPT Realty has paid out, on average, around 62.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 17.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RPT Realty shareholders could enjoy a 17.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RPT Realty's case, that would currently equate to about $0.88 per share.

RPT Realty'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.

RPT Realty's most recent dividend payout was on 1 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have RPT Realty's shares ever split?

RPT Realty's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 13 May 1996. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your RPT Realty shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for RPT Realty shares which in turn could have impacted RPT Realty's share price.

RPT Realty share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, RPT Realty's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.615 up to $14.6042. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that RPT Realty's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
