Valuing SEGRO stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SEGRO's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SEGRO's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, SEGRO shares trade at around 16x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
SEGRO's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £263.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SEGRO's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||£397.3 million|
|Operating margin TTM||65.44%|
|Gross profit TTM||£308.6 million|
|Return on assets TTM||1.55%|
|Return on equity TTM||8.59%|
|Market capitalisation||£11.3 billion|
TTM: trailing 12 months
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 SEGRO.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 12.69
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and SEGRO's overall score of 12.69 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like SEGRO 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.).
Environmental score: 4.95/100
SEGRO's environmental score of 4.95 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that SEGRO is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 5/100
SEGRO's social score of 5 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that SEGRO is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 8.24/100
SEGRO's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that SEGRO is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dividend payout ratio: 3491.8% of net profits
Recently SEGRO has paid out, on average, around 3491.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SEGRO shareholders could enjoy a 2.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SEGRO's case, that would currently equate to about 0.21p per share.
SEGRO'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.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
SEGRO's shares were split on a 39:38 basis on 24 March 2016. So if you had owned 38 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 39 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SEGRO shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SEGRO shares which in turn could have impacted SEGRO's share price.
Over the last 12 months, SEGRO's shares have ranged in value from as little as 624.4108p up to 989.521p. 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 (LSE average) beta is 1, while SEGRO's is 0.4848. This would suggest that SEGRO's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
