Is Ultra Clean stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 15x. In other words, Ultra Clean shares trade at around 15x 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 $304.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ultra Clean's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
