Is Universal Technical Institute under- or over-valued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Universal Technical Institute's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 438,013 Universal Technical Institute shares held short by investors – that's known as Universal Technical Institute's "short interest". This figure is 49% down from 858,256 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Universal Technical Institute shares can be evaluated.

Universal Technical Institute's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Universal Technical Institute's SIR currently stands at 6.81. In other words for every 100,000 Universal Technical Institute shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6810 shares are currently held short.

However Universal Technical Institute's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Universal Technical Institute shares, or, against the total number of tradable Universal Technical Institute shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Universal Technical Institute's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Universal Technical Institute shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0167% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Universal Technical Institute shares, roughly 17 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 Universal Technical Institute.
