Is SL Green Realty under- or over-valued?

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.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SL Green Realty shares can be evaluated.
SL Green Realty's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However SL Green Realty's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SL Green Realty shares, or, against the total number of tradable SL Green Realty shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SL Green Realty's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SL Green Realty shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.116% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SL Green Realty shares, roughly 116 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 SL Green Realty.

In SL Green Realty's case, that would currently equate to about $3.651 per share.
While SL Green Realty's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that SL Green Realty is investing more in its future growth.

Have SL Green Realty's shares ever split?
SL Green Realty's shares were split on a 971:1000 basis on 20 January 2021. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 971 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SL Green Realty shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SL Green Realty shares which in turn could have impacted SL Green Realty's share price.
SL Green Realty share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, SL Green Realty's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.5046 up to $85.3323. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
