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 8x. In other words, Charter Hall Retail REIT shares trade at around 8x 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: 45.88% of net profits
Recently Charter Hall Retail REIT has paid out, on average, around 45.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.26% 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 6.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Charter Hall Retail REIT's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.234 per share.
While Charter Hall Retail REIT's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Charter Hall Retail REIT 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 Charter Hall Retail REIT's shares ever split?
Charter Hall Retail REIT's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 31 August 2010. So if you had owned 5 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 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 $3.1542 up to $4.095. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
