Is U.S. Physical Therapy under- or over-valued?

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

P/E ratio

U.S. Physical Therapy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, U.S. Physical Therapy shares trade at around 26x 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.

PEG ratio

U.S. Physical Therapy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.9404. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

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

EBITDA

U.S. Physical Therapy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $81.9 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a U.S. Physical Therapy's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Do U.S. Physical Therapy shares pay dividends?

2.2%

Dividend yield: 2.19% of stock value

2.2%

Forward annual dividend yield: 2.19% of stock value

51.6%

Dividend payout ratio: 51.6% of net profits

U.S. Physical Therapy has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 2.19% of its share value annually.

U.S. Physical Therapy has paid out, on average, around 51.6% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 2.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In U.S. Physical Therapy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.58 per share.

U.S. Physical Therapy'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.

U.S. Physical Therapy's most recent dividend payout was on 16 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, U.S. Physical Therapy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $73.63 up to $130.8838. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

USPH.US volatility(beta: 1.32)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while U.S. Physical Therapy's is 1.3244. This would suggest that U.S. Physical Therapy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
