How to buy shares in Uber

  1. Compare share trading platforms. To buy shares in a company listed in the US from Australia you'll need to find a trading platform that offers access to US stock markets. Look for a platform with low brokerage and foreign exchange fees.
  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, which will typically include your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
  3. Search for Uber. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: UBER. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment that matches your financial goals.
  4. Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Uber reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying using consistent intervals and amounts.
  5. Decide on how many to buy. At last close price of US$66.05, weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of Uber, depending on your broker.
  6. Check in on your investment. Congratulations, you own a part of Uber. Optimise your portfolio by tracking how your stock — and even the business — performs with an eye on the long term. You may be eligible for dividends and shareholder voting rights.

Is it a good time to buy Uber stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Uber under- or over-valued?

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

Uber's P/E ratio

Uber's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 106x. In other words, Uber shares trade at around 106x 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.

Uber's PEG ratio

Uber's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5116. 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 Uber's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Uber's EBITDA

Uber's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$2.4 billion (£1.9 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Uber's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Uber share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Uber's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$37.07 up to US$82.14. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UBER.US volatility(beta: 1.39)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Uber's is 1.388. This would suggest that Uber's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
