Is Safehold under- or over-valued?

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

Safehold's P/E ratio

Safehold's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 62x. In other words, Safehold shares trade at around 62x 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.

Safehold's PEG ratio

Safehold's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.65. 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 Safehold's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Safehold's EBITDA

Safehold's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $142.8 million.

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

Shorting Safehold shares

There are currently 1.1 million Safehold shares held short by investors – that's known as Safehold's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% down from 1.1 million last month.

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

Safehold's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Safehold's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Safehold shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Safehold shares traded daily (recently around 101880.37037037). Safehold's SIR currently stands at 10.8. In other words for every 100,000 Safehold shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10800 shares are currently held short.

However Safehold's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Safehold shares, or, against the total number of tradable Safehold shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Safehold's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Safehold shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0582% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Safehold shares, roughly 58 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Safehold.

Safehold share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 50.07% of net profits

Recently Safehold has paid out, on average, around 50.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Safehold shareholders could enjoy a 0.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Safehold's case, that would currently equate to about $0.657 per share.

Safehold'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.

Safehold's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Safehold share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Safehold's shares have ranged in value from as little as $62.6776 up to $95.065. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Safehold's is -0.3139. This would suggest that Safehold's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Safehold has bucked the trend.
