Valuing Simon Property Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Simon Property Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Simon Property Group'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, Simon Property Group 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.
Simon Property Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0799. 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 Simon Property Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Simon Property Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Simon Property Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 28.6 million Simon Property Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Simon Property Group's "short interest". This figure is 3.7% up from 27.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Simon Property Group shares can be evaluated.
Simon Property Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Simon Property Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Simon Property Group shares traded daily (recently around 4.9 million). Simon Property Group's SIR currently stands at 5.79. In other words for every 100,000 Simon Property Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5790 shares are currently held short.
However Simon Property Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Simon Property Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Simon Property Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Simon Property Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Simon Property Group shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1231% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Simon Property Group shares, roughly 123 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Simon Property Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 161.52% of net profits
Recently Simon Property Group has paid out, on average, around 161.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Simon Property Group shareholders could enjoy a 8.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Simon Property Group's case, that would currently equate to about $5.2 per share.
Simon Property Group'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.
Simon Property Group's most recent dividend payout was on 23 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Simon Property Group's shares were split on a 1063:1000 basis on 29 May 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1063 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Simon Property Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Simon Property Group shares which in turn could have impacted Simon Property Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Simon Property Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $42.25 up to $158.4. 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 Simon Property Group's is 1.3585. This would suggest that Simon Property Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
