Is Lendlease under- or over-valued?
Valuing Lendlease stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lendlease's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lendlease's P/E ratio
Lendlease's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, Lendlease shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.

Lendlease's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.27. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Lendlease's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Lendlease share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 92.28% of net profits
Recently Lendlease has paid out, on average, around 92.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lendlease shareholders could enjoy a 2.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lendlease's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.27 per share.
Lendlease'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 19 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
