Is Uniti Group under- or over-valued?

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

Uniti Group's P/E ratio

Uniti 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 711x. In other words, Uniti Group shares trade at around 711x recent earnings.

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

Uniti Group's EBITDA

Uniti Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $790.1 million.

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

Shorting Uniti Group shares

There are currently 12.5 million Uniti Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Uniti Group's "short interest". This figure is 4% down from 13.0 million last month.

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

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

Uniti Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Uniti Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Uniti Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Uniti Group's SIR currently stands at 9.68. In other words for every 100,000 Uniti Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9680 shares are currently held short.

However Uniti Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Uniti Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Uniti Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Uniti Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Uniti Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0592% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Uniti Group shares, roughly 59 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Uniti Group.

Uniti Group share dividends

69%

Dividend payout ratio: 68.97% of net profits

Recently Uniti Group has paid out, on average, around 68.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Uniti Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Uniti Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

Uniti Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Uniti Group's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Uniti Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Uniti Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.2504 up to $13.294. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UNIT.US volatility(beta: 0.98)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 Uniti Group's is 0.9831. This would suggest that Uniti Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
