Is Lennar Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Lennar Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lennar Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

Lennar Corporation's environmental score
Environmental score: 15.41/100
Lennar Corporation's environmental score of 15.41 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Lennar Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Lennar Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 10.19% of net profits
Recently Lennar Corporation has paid out, on average, around 10.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lennar Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lennar Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.125 per share.
While Lennar Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Lennar Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Lennar Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Lennar Corporation's shares were split on a 1017:1000 basis on 9 November 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1017 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lennar Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lennar Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Lennar Corporation's share price.
Lennar Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Lennar Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $70.67 up to $116.5196. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Lennar Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
