Is Universal Logistics under- or over-valued?
Valuing Universal Logistics stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Universal Logistics's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Universal Logistics's P/E ratio
Universal Logistics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Universal Logistics shares trade at around 11x 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.
Universal Logistics's PEG ratio
Universal Logistics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.88. 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 Logistics'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 Logistics's EBITDA

Shorting Universal Logistics shares
There are currently 195,619 Universal Logistics shares held short by investors – that's known as Universal Logistics's "short interest". This figure is 8.7% up from 179,900 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Universal Logistics shares can be evaluated.
Universal Logistics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Universal Logistics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Universal Logistics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Universal Logistics shares traded daily (recently around 63512.662337662). Universal Logistics's SIR currently stands at 3.08. In other words for every 100,000 Universal Logistics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3080 shares are currently held short.
However Universal Logistics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Universal Logistics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Universal Logistics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Universal Logistics's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Universal Logistics shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0268% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Universal Logistics shares, roughly 27 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 Universal Logistics.

Universal Logistics share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 17.12% of net profits
Recently Universal Logistics has paid out, on average, around 17.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Universal Logistics shareholders could enjoy a 1.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Universal Logistics's case, that would currently equate to about $0.21 per share.
While Universal Logistics's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Universal Logistics is investing more in its future growth.
Universal Logistics's most recent dividend payout was on 5 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Universal Logistics share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Universal Logistics's is 1.5707. This would suggest that Universal Logistics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
