Is Walker-and-Dunlop stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Walker-and-Dunlop stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Walker-and-Dunlop's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Walker-and-Dunlop's P/E ratio
Walker-and-Dunlop'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, Walker-and-Dunlop 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.
Walker-and-Dunlop's PEG ratio
Walker-and-Dunlop's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.25. 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 Walker-and-Dunlop's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Walker-and-Dunlop share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 25.94% of net profits
Recently Walker-and-Dunlop has paid out, on average, around 25.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Walker-and-Dunlop shareholders could enjoy a 2.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Walker-and-Dunlop's case, that would currently equate to about $2.1 per share.
While Walker-and-Dunlop's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Walker-and-Dunlop may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Walker-and-Dunlop's most recent dividend payout was on 2 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Walker-and-Dunlop share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Walker-and-Dunlop's shares have ranged in value from as little as $88.2 up to $155.2064. 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 Walker-and-Dunlop's is 1.1738. This would suggest that Walker-and-Dunlop'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).
