Is UFP Industries under- or over-valued?

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

UFP Industries's P/E ratio

UFP Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, UFP Industries shares trade at around 16x 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.

UFP Industries's PEG ratio

UFP Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.88. 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 UFP Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

UFP Industries's EBITDA

UFP Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $512.3 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a UFP Industries's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting UFP Industries shares

There are currently 961,803 UFP Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as UFP Industries's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% up from 925,760 last month.

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

UFP Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

UFP Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of UFP Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of UFP Industries shares traded daily (recently around 439179.45205479). UFP Industries's SIR currently stands at 2.19. In other words for every 100,000 UFP Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2190 shares are currently held short.

However UFP Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of UFP Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable UFP Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case UFP Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 UFP Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0221% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable UFP Industries shares, roughly 22 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 UFP Industries.

UFP Industries share dividends

9%

Dividend payout ratio: 9.26% of net profits

Recently UFP Industries has paid out, on average, around 9.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), UFP Industries shareholders could enjoy a 0.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In UFP Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.375 per share.

While UFP Industries's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that UFP Industries is investing more in its future growth.

UFP Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 14 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have UFP Industries's shares ever split?

UFP Industries's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 14 November 2017. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your UFP Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for UFP Industries shares which in turn could have impacted UFP Industries's share price.

UFP Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, UFP Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.2485 up to $85.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UFPI.US volatility(beta: 1.53)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while UFP Industries's is 1.5339. This would suggest that UFP Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
