Is Waypoint REIT under- or over-valued?
Valuing Waypoint REIT stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Waypoint REIT 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Waypoint REIT 's P/E ratio
Waypoint 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 4x. In other words, Waypoint REIT shares trade at around 4x 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.

Waypoint REIT share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 95.78% of net profits
Recently Waypoint REIT has paid out, on average, around 95.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Waypoint REIT shareholders could enjoy a 6.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Waypoint REIT 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.16 per share.
Waypoint 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 30 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Waypoint REIT 's shares ever split?
Waypoint REIT 's shares were split on a 9382:10000 basis on 9 November 2021. So if you had owned 10000 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 9382 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Waypoint REIT shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 6.6% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Waypoint REIT shares which in turn could have impacted Waypoint REIT 's share price.
Waypoint REIT share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Waypoint REIT 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.15 up to $2.8563. 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 Waypoint REIT 's is 0.259. This would suggest that Waypoint REIT 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
