Valuing Ubiquiti stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ubiquiti's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ubiquiti's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, Ubiquiti shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Ubiquiti's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.82. 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 Ubiquiti's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Ubiquiti's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$485.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ubiquiti's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.3 million Ubiquiti shares held short by investors – that's known as Ubiquiti's "short interest". This figure is 10.5% up from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ubiquiti shares can be evaluated.
Ubiquiti's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ubiquiti shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ubiquiti shares traded daily (recently around 168619.92433796). Ubiquiti's SIR currently stands at 7.93. In other words for every 100,000 Ubiquiti shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7930 shares are currently held short.
However Ubiquiti's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ubiquiti shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ubiquiti shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ubiquiti's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ubiquiti shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.1805% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ubiquiti shares, roughly 181 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Ubiquiti.

Dividend payout ratio: 22% of net profits
Recently Ubiquiti has paid out, on average, around 22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ubiquiti shareholders could enjoy a 0.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ubiquiti's case, that would currently equate to about $1.6 per share.
While Ubiquiti's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ubiquiti is investing more in its future growth.
Ubiquiti's most recent dividend payout was on 8 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Ubiquiti's shares have ranged in value from as little as $110.0088 up to $207.24. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ubiquiti's is 1.1539. This would suggest that Ubiquiti'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).
