Valuing UGI Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of UGI Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
UGI Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, UGI Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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.
UGI Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.65. 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 UGI Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
UGI Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a UGI Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.1 million UGI Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as UGI Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.1% up from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting UGI Corporation shares can be evaluated.
UGI Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of UGI Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of UGI Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 905976.31578947). UGI Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.28. In other words for every 100,000 UGI Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2280 shares are currently held short.
However UGI Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of UGI Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable UGI Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case UGI Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 UGI Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0145% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable UGI Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 UGI Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 49.06% of net profits
Recently UGI Corporation has paid out, on average, around 49.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), UGI Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In UGI Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.
While UGI Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that UGI Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
UGI Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 1 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
UGI Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 8 September 2014. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 UGI Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for UGI Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted UGI Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, UGI Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.3066 up to $44.293. 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 UGI Corporation's is 0.951. This would suggest that UGI Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
