Is Ultra Clean under- or over-valued?

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

Ultra Clean's P/E ratio

Ultra Clean's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Ultra Clean shares trade at around 20x 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.

Ultra Clean's PEG ratio

Ultra Clean's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.75. 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 Ultra Clean's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ultra Clean's EBITDA

Ultra Clean's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $201.6 million.

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

Shorting Ultra Clean shares

There are currently 969,455 Ultra Clean shares held short by investors – that's known as Ultra Clean's "short interest". This figure is 4% down from 1.0 million last month.

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

Ultra Clean's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ultra Clean's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ultra Clean shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ultra Clean shares traded daily (recently around 340159.64912281). Ultra Clean's SIR currently stands at 2.85. In other words for every 100,000 Ultra Clean shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2850 shares are currently held short.

However Ultra Clean's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ultra Clean shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ultra Clean shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ultra Clean's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ultra Clean shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0261% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ultra Clean shares, roughly 26 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 Ultra Clean.

UCTT.US volatility(beta: 1.98)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 Ultra Clean's is 1.9772. This would suggest that Ultra Clean's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
