Is U-SPhysical Therapy under- or over-valued?

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

U-SPhysical Therapy's P/E ratio

U-SPhysical Therapy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 48x. In other words, U-SPhysical Therapy shares trade at around 48x 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.

U-SPhysical Therapy's PEG ratio

U-SPhysical Therapy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.9404. 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 U-SPhysical Therapy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

U-SPhysical Therapy's EBITDA

Shorting U-SPhysical Therapy shares

There are currently 642,538 U-SPhysical Therapy shares held short by investors – that's known as U-SPhysical Therapy's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% down from 643,691 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting U-SPhysical Therapy shares can be evaluated.

U-SPhysical Therapy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

U-SPhysical Therapy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of U-SPhysical Therapy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of U-SPhysical Therapy shares traded daily (recently around 55343.496985357). U-SPhysical Therapy's SIR currently stands at 11.61. In other words for every 100,000 U-SPhysical Therapy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11610 shares are currently held short.

However U-SPhysical Therapy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of U-SPhysical Therapy shares, or, against the total number of tradable U-SPhysical Therapy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case U-SPhysical Therapy's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 U-SPhysical Therapy shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0508% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable U-SPhysical Therapy shares, roughly 51 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against U-SPhysical Therapy.

U-SPhysical Therapy share dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.91% of net profits

Recently U-SPhysical Therapy has paid out, on average, around 29.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), U-SPhysical Therapy shareholders could enjoy a 1.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In U-SPhysical Therapy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.35 per share.

While U-SPhysical Therapy's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that U-SPhysical Therapy may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

U-SPhysical Therapy's most recent dividend payout was on 10 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have U-SPhysical Therapy's shares ever split?

U-SPhysical Therapy's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 28 June 2001. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 U-SPhysical Therapy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for U-SPhysical Therapy shares which in turn could have impacted U-SPhysical Therapy's share price.

U-SPhysical Therapy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, U-SPhysical Therapy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $74.3417 up to $142.8089. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

USPH.US volatility(beta: 1.46)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while U-SPhysical Therapy's is 1.4592. This would suggest that U-SPhysical Therapy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
