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 22x. In other words, Lendlease shares trade at around 22x 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.
Lendlease's PEG ratio
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's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $319 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Lendlease's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Lendlease share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 31.09% of net profits
Recently Lendlease has paid out, on average, around 31.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.54% of the current stock value.

In Lendlease's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.07 per share.
While Lendlease's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Lendlease may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
