Is Ubiquiti under- or over-valued?

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

Ubiquiti's P/E ratio

Ubiquiti's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Ubiquiti stocks trade at around 32x 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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

Ubiquiti's PEG ratio

Ubiquiti's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.82. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

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

Ubiquiti's EBITDA

Ubiquiti's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$754.7 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Ubiquiti's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

How to short and sell Ubiquiti stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "UI.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 365,572 Ubiquiti stocks held short by investors – that's known as Ubiquiti's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% down from 397,674 last month.

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

Ubiquiti's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ubiquiti's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ubiquiti stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ubiquiti stocks traded daily (recently around 46451.334180432). Ubiquiti's SIR currently stands at 7.87. In other words for every 100,000 Ubiquiti stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 7870 stocks are currently held short.

However Ubiquiti's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ubiquiti stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Ubiquiti stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ubiquiti's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Ubiquiti stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0589% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Ubiquiti stocks, roughly 59 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Ubiquiti.

Ubiquiti stock dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 18.42% of net profits

Recently Ubiquiti has paid out, on average, around 18.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ubiquiti shareholders could enjoy a 0.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ubiquiti's case, that would currently equate to about $1.6 per share.

While Ubiquiti's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ubiquiti is investing more in its future growth.

Ubiquiti's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 3 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ubiquiti stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ubiquiti's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $149.8439 up to $378.3204. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UI.US volatility(beta: 1.36)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ubiquiti's is 1.3553. This would suggest that Ubiquiti's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
