Is VEREIT stock undervalued or overvalued?

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 58x. In other words, VEREIT shares trade at around 58x 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 $986.5 million.

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

VEREIT'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 VEREIT.

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

VEREIT's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 21.73

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and VEREIT's overall score of 21.73 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 19th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.27/100

VEREIT's environmental score of 7.27 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that VEREIT is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

VEREIT's social score

Social score: 8.16/100

VEREIT's social score of 8.16 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that VEREIT is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

VEREIT's governance score

Governance score: 9.8/100

VEREIT's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that VEREIT is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

VEREIT's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. VEREIT scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that VEREIT hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

VEREIT share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 59% of net profits

Recently VEREIT has paid out, on average, around 59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.67% 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 3.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In VEREIT's case, that would currently equate to about $1.771 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 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 October 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 $33.6846 up to $52.3692. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VER.US volatility(beta: 1.19)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 VEREIT's is 1.1894. 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).
