Is Kennedy-Wilson under- or over-valued?

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.

Kennedy-Wilson share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.39% of net profits

Recently Kennedy-Wilson has paid out, on average, around 28.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kennedy-Wilson shareholders could enjoy a 3.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kennedy-Wilson's case, that would currently equate to about $0.88 per share.

While Kennedy-Wilson's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Kennedy-Wilson may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Kennedy-Wilson's most recent dividend payout was on 5 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Kennedy-Wilson share price volatility

KW.US volatility(beta: 1.15)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 Kennedy-Wilson's is 1.1546. This would suggest that Kennedy-Wilson'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).
