Is Sun Communities stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Sun Communities's P/E ratio

Sun Communities's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 51x. In other words, Sun Communities shares trade at around 51x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Sun Communities's PEG ratio

Sun Communities's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 29.63. 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 Sun Communities's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Sun Communities share dividends

85%

Dividend payout ratio: 84.86% of net profits

Recently Sun Communities has paid out, on average, around 84.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sun Communities shareholders could enjoy a 2.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sun Communities's case, that would currently equate to about $3.37 per share.

Sun Communities'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.

Sun Communities'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 Sun Communities's shares ever split?

Sun Communities's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 9 May 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sun Communities shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sun Communities shares which in turn could have impacted Sun Communities's share price.

Sun Communities share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sun Communities's shares have ranged in value from as little as $147.8339 up to $209.6209. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SUI.US volatility(beta: 0.65)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
