Is Charter Hall Retail REIT under- or over-valued?

Valuing Charter Hall Retail REIT stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Charter Hall Retail REIT's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Charter Hall Retail REIT's P/E ratio

Charter Hall Retail REIT's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Charter Hall Retail REIT shares trade at around 4x 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.

Charter Hall Retail REIT share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 24.4% of net profits

Recently Charter Hall Retail REIT has paid out, on average, around 24.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Charter Hall Retail REIT shareholders could enjoy a 6.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Charter Hall Retail REIT's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.244 per share.

While Charter Hall Retail REIT's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Charter Hall Retail REIT is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Charter Hall Retail REIT's shares ever split?

Charter Hall Retail REIT's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 1 September 2010. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Charter Hall Retail REIT shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Charter Hall Retail REIT shares which in turn could have impacted Charter Hall Retail REIT's share price.

Charter Hall Retail REIT share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Charter Hall Retail REIT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.5142 up to $4.51. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CQR.AU volatility(beta: 0.53)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Charter Hall Retail REIT's is 0.53. This would suggest that Charter Hall Retail REIT's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
