Is Stockland under- or over-valued?

Valuing Stockland stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Stockland's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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 44x. In other words, Stockland shares trade at around 44x recent earnings.

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.

Stockland's EBITDA

Stockland's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $793 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Stockland's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Stockland's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Stockland.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Stockland's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 6.79

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Stockland's overall score of 6.79 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Stockland is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Stockland's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.02/100

Stockland's environmental score of 4.02 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Stockland is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Stockland's social score

Social score: 3.83/100

Stockland's social score of 3.83 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Stockland is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Stockland's governance score

Governance score: 5.43/100

Stockland's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Stockland scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Stockland has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Stockland share dividends

We're not expecting Stockland to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Stockland's shares ever split?

Stockland's shares were split on a 1.0586:1 basis on 14 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 $3.4278 up to $4.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SGP.AU volatility(beta: 1.16)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Stockland's is 1.156. 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).
