Is UGI Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

UGI Corporation's P/E ratio

UGI Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, UGI Corporation stocks trade at around 11x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the stocks or simply that they're under-valued.

UGI Corporation's PEG ratio

UGI Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.65. 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 UGI Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

UGI Corporation's EBITDA

UGI Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2 billion.

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

There are currently 3.2 million UGI Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as UGI Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 17.6% down from 3.9 million last month.

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

UGI Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

UGI Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of UGI Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of UGI Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). UGI Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.05. In other words for every 100,000 UGI Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3050 stocks are currently held short.

However UGI Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of UGI Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable UGI Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case UGI Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 UGI Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0154% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable UGI Corporation stocks, roughly 15 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against UGI Corporation.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like UGI Corporation.

UGI Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 39.84

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and UGI Corporation's overall score of 39.84 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 83rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like UGI Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

UGI Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 19.22/100

UGI Corporation's environmental score of 19.22 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that UGI Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

UGI Corporation's social score

Social score: 17.06/100

UGI Corporation's social score of 17.06 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that UGI Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

UGI Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 9.05/100

UGI Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that UGI Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

UGI Corporation stock dividends

43%

Dividend payout ratio: 42.93% of net profits

Recently UGI Corporation has paid out, on average, around 42.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), UGI Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In UGI Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.

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

UGI Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have UGI Corporation stocks ever split?

UGI Corporation stocks were split on a 3:2 basis on 7 September 2014. 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 UGI Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for UGI Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted UGI Corporation's stock price.

UGI Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, UGI Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $30.3275 up to $47.86. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UGI.US volatility(beta: 0.99)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 UGI Corporation's is 0.9929. This would suggest that UGI Corporation's stocks are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
