Valuing Ultra Electronics stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ultra Electronics's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ultra Electronics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Ultra Electronics shares trade at around 21x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Ultra Electronics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.04. 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 Ultra Electronics's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Ultra Electronics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £131.5 million.

Dividend payout ratio: 8166.67% of net profits
Recently Ultra Electronics has paid out, on average, around 8166.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ultra Electronics shareholders could enjoy a 3.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ultra Electronics's case, that would currently equate to about 0.7p per share.
Ultra Electronics's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Ultra Electronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as 1392.7711p up to 2498.5134p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Ultra Electronics's is 0.3938. This would suggest that Ultra Electronics's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
