Is Universal Logistics stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Universal Logistics's P/E ratio

Universal Logistics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Universal Logistics shares trade at around 9x 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 shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Universal Logistics's PEG ratio

Universal Logistics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.88. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

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

Universal Logistics's EBITDA

Universal Logistics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $261.6 million.

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

Universal Logistics share dividends

9%

Dividend payout ratio: 9.17% of net profits

Recently Universal Logistics has paid out, on average, around 9.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Universal Logistics shareholders could enjoy a 1.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Universal Logistics's case, that would currently equate to about $0.42 per share.

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

Universal Logistics's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Universal Logistics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Universal Logistics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.6474 up to $50.3988. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ULH.US volatility(beta: 0.82)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 Universal Logistics's is 0.824. This would suggest that Universal Logistics's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
