Is VEREIT under- or over-valued?
Valuing VEREIT stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of VEREIT's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
VEREIT's P/E ratio
VEREIT's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 55x. In other words, VEREIT shares trade at around 55x 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.
VEREIT's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $976.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a VEREIT's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting VEREIT shares
There are currently 6.5 million VEREIT shares held short by investors – that's known as VEREIT's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% down from 7.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting VEREIT shares can be evaluated.
VEREIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
VEREIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VEREIT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VEREIT shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). VEREIT's SIR currently stands at 3.46. In other words for every 100,000 VEREIT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3460 shares are currently held short.
However VEREIT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VEREIT shares, or, against the total number of tradable VEREIT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VEREIT's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VEREIT shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0285% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VEREIT shares, roughly 29 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 VEREIT.

Total ESG risk: 21.73

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like VEREIT 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.).

VEREIT share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 65.18% of net profits
Recently VEREIT has paid out, on average, around 65.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), VEREIT shareholders could enjoy a 3.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In VEREIT's case, that would currently equate to about $1.617 per share.
VEREIT'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.
VEREIT's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have VEREIT's shares ever split?
VEREIT's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 17 December 2020. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your VEREIT shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for VEREIT shares which in turn could have impacted VEREIT's share price.
VEREIT share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, VEREIT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.0914 up to $49.44. 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 VEREIT's is 1.1812. This would suggest that VEREIT's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
VEREIT is a full-service real estate operating company which owns and manages one of the largest portfolios of single-tenant commercial properties in the U. S.
