Is Universal Store under- or over-valued?
Valuing Universal Store stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Universal Store's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Universal Store's P/E ratio
Universal Store'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, Universal Store shares trade at around 21x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). 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 Store's EBITDA
Universal Store's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $52.4 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Universal Store's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Universal Store share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 41.89% of net profits
Recently Universal Store has paid out, on average, around 41.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Universal Store shareholders could enjoy a 2.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Universal Store's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.155 per share.
While Universal Store's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Universal Store may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
