Is National Storage REIT under- or over-valued?

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.

National Storage REIT share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 50.63% of net profits
Recently National Storage REIT has paid out, on average, around 50.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), National Storage REIT shareholders could enjoy a 4.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In National Storage REIT's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.08 per share.
National Storage 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 28 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
