Is UBS Group under- or over-valued?

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

UBS Group's P/E ratio

UBS Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, UBS Group shares trade at around 8x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

UBS Group's PEG ratio

UBS Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5563. 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 UBS Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting UBS Group shares

There are currently 5.9 million UBS Group shares held short by investors – that's known as UBS Group's "short interest". This figure is 3.8% down from 6.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting UBS Group shares can be evaluated.

UBS Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

UBS Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of UBS Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of UBS Group shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). UBS Group's SIR currently stands at 2.95. In other words for every 100,000 UBS Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2950 shares are currently held short.

However UBS Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of UBS Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable UBS Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case UBS Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 UBS Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable UBS Group shares, roughly 2 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against UBS Group.

UBS Group'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 UBS Group.

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

UBS Group's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 27.02

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and UBS Group's overall score of 27.02 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 39th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like UBS Group 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.).

UBS Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.41/100

UBS Group's environmental score of 3.41 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that UBS Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

UBS Group's social score

Social score: 14.25/100

UBS Group's social score of 14.25 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that UBS Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

UBS Group's governance score

Governance score: 10.36/100

UBS Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that UBS Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

UBS Group's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. UBS Group scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that UBS Group hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

UBS Group AG was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 27.02
Total ESG percentile 39.22
Environmental score 3.41

UBS Group share dividends

37%

Dividend payout ratio: 37.09% of net profits

Recently UBS Group has paid out, on average, around 37.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), UBS Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In UBS Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.37 per share.

While UBS Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that UBS Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

UBS Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have UBS Group's shares ever split?

UBS Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 July 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your UBS Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for UBS Group shares which in turn could have impacted UBS Group's share price.

UBS Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, UBS Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.8986 up to $16.58. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UBS.US volatility(beta: 1.12)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while UBS Group's is 1.1204. This would suggest that UBS Group'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).
