Is Prologis under- or over-valued?

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

Prologis's P/E ratio

Prologis's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Prologis shares trade at around 26x 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.

Prologis's PEG ratio

Prologis's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.8861. 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 Prologis's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Prologis's EBITDA

Prologis's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.7 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Prologis's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Prologis's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Prologis.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Prologis's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 16.23

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Prologis's overall score of 16.23 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Prologis is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Prologis's environmental score

Environmental score: 8.44/100

Prologis's environmental score of 8.44 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Prologis is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Prologis's social score

Social score: 7.38/100

Prologis's social score of 7.38 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Prologis is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Prologis's governance score

Governance score: 7.4/100

Prologis's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Prologis is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Prologis's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Prologis scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Prologis has managed to keep its nose clean.

Prologis share dividends

54%

Dividend payout ratio: 53.99% of net profits

Recently Prologis has paid out, on average, around 53.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Prologis shareholders could enjoy a 2.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Prologis's case, that would currently equate to about $2.68 per share.

Prologis'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.

Prologis's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Prologis share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Prologis's shares have ranged in value from as little as $111.2742 up to $174.54. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PLD.US volatility(beta: 0.88)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 Prologis's is 0.8799. This would suggest that Prologis's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
