Is Ubiquiti Networks under- or over-valued?

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

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.

Ubiquiti Networks's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Ubiquiti Networks's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ubiquiti Networks share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 38.28% of net profits

Recently Ubiquiti Networks has paid out, on average, around 38.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ubiquiti Networks shareholders could enjoy a 0.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ubiquiti Networks's case, that would currently equate to about $2.4 per share.

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

Ubiquiti Networks's most recent dividend payout was on 13 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ubiquiti Networks share price volatility

UI.US volatility(beta: 1.38)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 Ubiquiti Networks's is 1.3787. This would suggest that Ubiquiti Networks's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
