Is SL Green Realty under- or over-valued?

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

SL Green Realty's P/E ratio

SL Green 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 18x. In other words, SL Green Realty shares trade at around 18x 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.

SL Green Realty's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into SL Green 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.

Shorting SL Green Realty shares

There are currently 7.1 million SL Green Realty shares held short by investors – that's known as SL Green Realty's "short interest". This figure is 2.4% down from 7.3 million last month.

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)

SL Green Realty's SIR currently stands at 8.94. In other words for every 100,000 SL Green Realty shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8940 shares are currently held short.

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 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SL Green Realty shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1059% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SL Green Realty shares, roughly 106 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.

SL Green Realty share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 18.05% of net profits

Recently SL Green Realty has paid out, on average, around 18.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SL Green Realty shareholders could enjoy a 4.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SL Green Realty's case, that would currently equate to about $3.649 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.

SL Green Realty'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").

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 $39.0181 up to $84.2795. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SLG.US volatility(beta: 1.55)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 SL Green Realty's is 1.5513. This would suggest that SL Green 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).
