Valuing Univest Financial Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Univest Financial Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Univest Financial 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 8x. In other words, Univest Financial Corporation stocks trade at around 8x 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.
Univest Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.47. 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 Univest Financial 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 356,404 Univest Financial Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Univest Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% up from 350,252 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Univest Financial Corporation stocks can be evaluated.
Univest Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Univest Financial Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Univest Financial Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 65156.124314442). Univest Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.47. In other words for every 100,000 Univest Financial Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 5470 stocks are currently held short.
However Univest Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Univest Financial Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Univest Financial Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Univest Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Univest Financial Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0127% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Univest Financial Corporation stocks, roughly 13 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 Univest Financial Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 18.02% of net profits
Recently Univest Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 18.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Univest Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Univest Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
While Univest Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Univest Financial Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Univest Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 25 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 10 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Univest Financial Corporation stocks were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 May 2005. 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 Univest Financial Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Univest Financial Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted Univest Financial Corporation's stock price.
Over the last 12 months, Univest Financial Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $13.6161 up to $29.7184. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Univest Financial Corporation's is 1.1299. This would suggest that Univest Financial Corporation's stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
