Is Lexington Realty Trust under- or over-valued?

Valuing Lexington Realty Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lexington Realty Trust's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Lexington Realty Trust's P/E ratio

Lexington Realty Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Lexington Realty Trust shares trade at around 18x 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.

Lexington Realty Trust's PEG ratio

Lexington Realty Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.37. 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 Lexington Realty Trust's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Lexington Realty Trust share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 56.92% of net profits

Recently Lexington Realty Trust has paid out, on average, around 56.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lexington Realty Trust shareholders could enjoy a 3.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lexington Realty Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $0.43 per share.

Lexington Realty Trust'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.

Lexington Realty Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 17 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Lexington Realty Trust's shares ever split?

Lexington Realty Trust's shares were split on a 281:271 basis on 22 September 2009. So if you had owned 271 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 281 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lexington Realty Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lexington Realty Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Lexington Realty Trust's share price.

Lexington Realty Trust share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lexington Realty Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.8306 up to $15.74. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LXP.US volatility(beta: 0.69)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
