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.

Shorting Urban One shares

There are currently 1.2 million Urban One shares held short by investors – that's known as Urban One's "short interest". This figure is 91.7% up from 604,908 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Urban One shares can be evaluated.

Urban One's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Urban One's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Urban One shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Urban One shares traded daily (recently around 6.4 million). Urban One's SIR currently stands at 0.18. In other words for every 100,000 Urban One shares traded daily on the market, roughly 180 shares are currently held short.

However Urban One's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Urban One shares, or, against the total number of tradable Urban One shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Urban One's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Urban One shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0537% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Urban One shares, roughly 54 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 Urban One.

Urban One share dividends

We're not expecting Urban One to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Urban One's shares ever split?

Urban One's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 6 June 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Urban One shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Urban One shares which in turn could have impacted Urban One's share price.

Urban One share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Urban One's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.23 up to $24.16. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UONE.US volatility(beta: 1.15)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 Urban One's is 1.1474. This would suggest that Urban One'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).
