Is Hersha Hospitality Trust stock undervalued or overvalued?

Hersha Hospitality Trust share dividends

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hersha Hospitality Trust shareholders could enjoy a 2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hersha Hospitality Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

While Hersha Hospitality Trust's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Hersha Hospitality Trust is investing more in its future growth.

Have Hersha Hospitality Trust's shares ever split?

Hersha Hospitality Trust's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 22 June 2015. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hersha Hospitality Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hersha Hospitality Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Hersha Hospitality Trust's share price.
