Is Starwood Property Trust stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Starwood Property Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Starwood Property Trust's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Starwood Property Trust's P/E ratio
Starwood Property Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Starwood Property Trust shares trade at around 10x 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.
Starwood Property Trust's PEG ratio
Starwood Property Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.73. 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 Starwood Property Trust's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Starwood Property Trust share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 66.44% of net profits
Recently Starwood Property Trust has paid out, on average, around 66.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Starwood Property Trust shareholders could enjoy a 9.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Starwood Property Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $1.92 per share.
Starwood Property Trust'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.
Starwood Property Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Starwood Property Trust's shares ever split?
Starwood Property Trust's shares were split on a 12402:1000 basis on 2 February 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 12402 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Starwood Property Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 91.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Starwood Property Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Starwood Property Trust's share price.
Starwood Property Trust share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Starwood Property Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.69 up to $25.3497. 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 Starwood Property Trust's is 1.4977. This would suggest that Starwood Property Trust's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
