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 50x. In other words, Charter Hall Retail REIT shares trade at around 50x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Charter Hall Retail REIT share dividends

Recently Charter Hall Retail REIT has paid out, on average, around 122.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.99% 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 7.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Charter Hall Retail REIT's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.258 per share.
Charter Hall Retail REIT'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 29 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Charter Hall Retail REIT's shares ever split?

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.
