Is Stockland under- or over-valued?

Stockland's P/E ratio
Stockland'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, Stockland 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.

Stockland share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 2.02% of net profits
Recently Stockland has paid out, on average, around 2.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stockland shareholders could enjoy a 6.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stockland's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.262 per share.
While Stockland's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Stockland is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Stockland's shares ever split?
Stockland's shares were split on a 1.0586:1 basis on 15 May 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 1.0586 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stockland shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stockland shares which in turn could have impacted Stockland's share price.
Stockland share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Stockland's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.3929 up to $4.43. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Stockland's is 1.084. This would suggest that Stockland's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
