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.
Universal Technical Institute's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 70x. In other words, Universal Technical Institute shares trade at around 70x 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 Technical Institute's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9317. 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 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 1.1 million Universal Technical Institute shares held short by investors – that's known as Universal Technical Institute's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% down from 1.2 million 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) is the quantity of Universal Technical Institute shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Universal Technical Institute shares traded daily (recently around 249897.40566038). Universal Technical Institute's SIR currently stands at 4.24. In other words for every 100,000 Universal Technical Institute shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4240 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 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Universal Technical Institute shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0371% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Universal Technical Institute shares, roughly 37 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 Technical Institute.
