Valuing Universal Display Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Universal Display Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Universal Display 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 111x. In other words, Universal Display Corporation shares trade at around 111x 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 shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Universal Display Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0275. 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 Display Corporation'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 Display Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.69. In other words for every 100,000 Universal Display Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3690 shares are currently held short.
However Universal Display Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Universal Display Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Universal Display Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Universal Display Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Universal Display Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.022% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Universal Display Corporation shares, roughly 22 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Universal Display Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 26.91% of net profits
Recently Universal Display Corporation has paid out, on average, around 26.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Universal Display Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Universal Display Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
While Universal Display Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Universal Display Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Universal Display Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Universal Display Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $104.8457 up to $262.77. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Universal Display Corporation's is 1.4275. This would suggest that Universal Display Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
