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

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.3 million Starwood Property Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Starwood Property Trust's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 5.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Starwood Property Trust shares can be evaluated.
Starwood Property Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Starwood Property Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Starwood Property Trust shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Starwood Property Trust's SIR currently stands at 1.78. In other words for every 100,000 Starwood Property Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1780 shares are currently held short.
However Starwood Property Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Starwood Property Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Starwood Property Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Starwood Property Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Starwood Property Trust shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0192% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Starwood Property Trust shares, roughly 19 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Starwood Property Trust.

Dividend payout ratio: 98.46% of net profits
Recently Starwood Property Trust has paid out, on average, around 98.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.04% 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 10.04% 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 15 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Starwood Property Trust's shares were split on a 12402:1000 basis on 3 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.
Over the last 12 months, Starwood Property Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.8632 up to $23.8086. 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 1.5378. 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).
