Is Global Medical REIT under- or over-valued?

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.

Global Medical REIT share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 91.11% of net profits
Recently Global Medical REIT has paid out, on average, around 91.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Global Medical REIT shareholders could enjoy a 4.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Global Medical REIT's case, that would currently equate to about $0.815 per share.
Global Medical REIT'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.
Global Medical REIT's most recent dividend payout was on 9 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Global Medical REIT's shares ever split?
Global Medical REIT's shares were split on a 1:400 basis on 16 November 2014. So if you had owned 400 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 Global Medical REIT shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 39900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Global Medical REIT shares which in turn could have impacted Global Medical REIT's share price.
