Is UTStarcom under- or over-valued?

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

UTStarcom's P/E ratio

UTStarcom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, UTStarcom shares trade at around 36x 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.

Shorting UTStarcom shares

There are currently 67,885 UTStarcom shares held short by investors – that's known as UTStarcom's "short interest". This figure is 49.9% down from 135,492 last month.

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

UTStarcom's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

UTStarcom's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of UTStarcom shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of UTStarcom shares traded daily (recently around 199661.76470588). UTStarcom's SIR currently stands at 0.34. In other words for every 100,000 UTStarcom shares traded daily on the market, roughly 340 shares are currently held short.

However UTStarcom's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of UTStarcom shares, or, against the total number of tradable UTStarcom shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case UTStarcom's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 UTStarcom shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0099% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable UTStarcom shares, roughly 10 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 UTStarcom.

UTStarcom share dividends

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

Have UTStarcom's shares ever split?

UTStarcom's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 21 March 2013. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your UTStarcom shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for UTStarcom shares which in turn could have impacted UTStarcom's share price.

UTStarcom share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, UTStarcom's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.82 up to $2.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UTSI.US volatility(beta: 1.36)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 UTStarcom's is 1.3564. This would suggest that UTStarcom's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
