Is Under Armour under- or over-valued?

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

Under Armour's P/E ratio

Under Armour'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, Under Armour shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Under Armour's PEG ratio

Under Armour's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.43. 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 Under Armour's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Under Armour's EBITDA

Under Armour's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$635 million (£0.0 million).

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

Shorting Under Armour shares

There are currently 12.6 million Under Armour shares held short by investors – that's known as Under Armour's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% down from 12.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Under Armour shares can be evaluated.

Under Armour's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Under Armour's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Under Armour shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Under Armour shares traded daily (recently around 5.9 million). Under Armour's SIR currently stands at 2.12. In other words for every 100,000 Under Armour shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2120 shares are currently held short.

However Under Armour's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Under Armour shares, or, against the total number of tradable Under Armour shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Under Armour's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Under Armour shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.067% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Under Armour shares, roughly 67 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 Under Armour.

Under Armour share dividends

We're not expecting Under Armour to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Under Armour's shares ever split?

Under Armour's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 April 2016. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Under Armour shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Under Armour shares which in turn could have impacted Under Armour's share price.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Under Armour's is 1.3233. This would suggest that Under Armour's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
