Is SL Green Realty 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.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like SL Green Realty 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.).
SL Green Realty's environmental score
Environmental score: 7/100
SL Green Realty's environmental score of 7 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that SL Green Realty is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

SL Green Realty share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 46.56% of net profits
Recently SL Green Realty has paid out, on average, around 46.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SL Green Realty shareholders could enjoy a 7.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SL Green Realty's case, that would currently equate to about $3.753 per share.
While SL Green Realty's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that SL Green Realty may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
SL Green Realty's most recent dividend payout was on 15 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have SL Green Realty's shares ever split?
SL Green Realty's shares were split on a 97:100 basis on 24 January 2022. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 97 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SL Green Realty shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.1% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SL Green Realty shares which in turn could have impacted SL Green Realty's share price.
SL Green Realty share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, SL Green Realty's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.64 up to $83.3383. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while SL Green Realty's is 1.387. This would suggest that SL Green Realty's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
