Valuing U-SGlobal Investors stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of U-SGlobal Investors's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
U-SGlobal Investors's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 91x. In other words, U-SGlobal Investors shares trade at around 91x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 36,044 U-SGlobal Investors shares held short by investors – that's known as U-SGlobal Investors's "short interest". This figure is 290.5% up from 9,231 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting U-SGlobal Investors shares can be evaluated.
U-SGlobal Investors's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of U-SGlobal Investors shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of U-SGlobal Investors shares traded daily (recently around 163836.36363636). U-SGlobal Investors's SIR currently stands at 0.22. In other words for every 100,000 U-SGlobal Investors shares traded daily on the market, roughly 220 shares are currently held short.
However U-SGlobal Investors's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of U-SGlobal Investors shares, or, against the total number of tradable U-SGlobal Investors shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case U-SGlobal Investors's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 U-SGlobal Investors shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable U-SGlobal Investors shares, roughly 3 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 U-SGlobal Investors.

Dividend payout ratio: 4.04% of net profits
Recently U-SGlobal Investors has paid out, on average, around 4.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), U-SGlobal Investors shareholders could enjoy a 0.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In U-SGlobal Investors's case, that would currently equate to about $0.03 per share.
While U-SGlobal Investors's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that U-SGlobal Investors is investing more in its future growth.
U-SGlobal Investors's most recent dividend payout was on 29 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
U-SGlobal Investors's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 March 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your U-SGlobal Investors shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for U-SGlobal Investors shares which in turn could have impacted U-SGlobal Investors's share price.
Over the last 12 months, U-SGlobal Investors's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.7913 up to $5.02. 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 U-SGlobal Investors's is 2.8661. This would suggest that U-SGlobal Investors's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
