Is UDR under- or over-valued?

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

UDR's P/E ratio

UDR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1853x. In other words, UDR shares trade at around 1853x 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.


UDR's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $737.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a UDR's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting UDR shares

There are currently 17.5 million UDR shares held short by investors – that's known as UDR's "short interest". This figure is 30.9% up from 13.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting UDR shares can be evaluated.

UDR's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

UDR's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of UDR shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of UDR shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). UDR's SIR currently stands at 8.77. In other words for every 100,000 UDR shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8770 shares are currently held short.

However UDR's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of UDR shares, or, against the total number of tradable UDR shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case UDR's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 UDR shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0594% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable UDR shares, roughly 59 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 UDR.

UDR's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like UDR.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

UDR's total ESG risk score

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like UDR is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

UDR's environmental score

Environmental score: 8.27/100

UDR's environmental score of 8.27 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that UDR is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Social score: 10.73/100

UDR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 98.97% of net profits

Recently UDR has paid out, on average, around 98.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), UDR shareholders could enjoy a 2.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In UDR's case, that would currently equate to about $1.445 per share.

UDR'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.

UDR's most recent dividend payout was on 1 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have UDR's shares ever split?

UDR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 May 1993. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your UDR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for UDR shares which in turn could have impacted UDR's share price.

UDR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, UDR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.6184 up to $55.935. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UDR.US volatility(beta: 0.73)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 UDR's is 0.7318. This would suggest that UDR's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
