Is Universal Logistics stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 5x. In other words, Universal Logistics shares trade at around 5x 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
Universal Logistics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $244.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Universal Logistics's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Universal Logistics share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 8.47% of net profits
Recently Universal Logistics has paid out, on average, around 8.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.71% 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 1.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Universal Logistics's case, that would currently equate to about $0.42 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 1 October 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Universal Logistics share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Universal Logistics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.9162 up to $44.5027. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
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 1.1947. This would suggest that Universal Logistics'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).
