Is Whitestone REIT under- or over-valued?

Whitestone REIT share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.86% of net profits
Recently Whitestone REIT has paid out, on average, around 22.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Whitestone REIT shareholders could enjoy a 4.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Whitestone REIT's case, that would currently equate to about $0.43 per share.
While Whitestone REIT's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Whitestone REIT is investing more in its future growth.

Over the last 12 months, Whitestone REIT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.2711 up to $13.5708. 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 Whitestone REIT's is 1.2064. This would suggest that Whitestone REIT'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).
