Is Highwoods Properties 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.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Highwoods Properties shareholders could enjoy a 4.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Highwoods Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $1.96 per share.

Highwoods Properties'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.

Highwoods Properties's most recent dividend payout was on 6 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
