Is Universal Electronics stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Universal Electronics's P/E ratio

Universal Electronics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 195x. In other words, Universal Electronics shares trade at around 195x 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.

Universal Electronics's PEG ratio

Universal Electronics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.39. 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 Universal Electronics's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Universal Electronics's EBITDA

Universal Electronics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $41.6 million.

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

Universal Electronics share dividends

We're not expecting Universal Electronics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Universal Electronics's shares ever split?

Universal Electronics's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 January 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Universal Electronics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Universal Electronics shares which in turn could have impacted Universal Electronics's share price.

Universal Electronics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Universal Electronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.56 up to $36.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UEIC.US volatility(beta: 1.12)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 Universal Electronics's is 1.1179. This would suggest that Universal Electronics's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
