Is BWP Trust under- or over-valued?
Valuing BWP Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BWP Trust's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BWP Trust's P/E ratio
BWP Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, BWP Trust shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

BWP Trust share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 44.61% of net profits
Recently BWP Trust has paid out, on average, around 44.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BWP Trust shareholders could enjoy a 4.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BWP Trust's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.183 per share.
While BWP Trust's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that BWP Trust may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have BWP Trust's shares ever split?
