The company has a market cap of $462.5m with 64.1m shares outstanding and a float of 63.7m shares. Trading volume was 219,322 shares and has experienced an average volume of 284,105 shares. Our calculation, using the current average volume and close price, leads me to believe that the liquidity is bad, highly speculative and an investor may want to avoid this stock.

The last annual reported EPS for U.S. Xpress Enterprises was 0.62 which ended on 31st of December 2018, which according to the previous close, that is a PE of 11.63. Based on 4 analyst estimates, the consensus EPS for the next quarter is 0.19.

Base on our calculations, the intrinsic value per share is 21.50, which means it might be undervalued and has a margin of safety of 66.47%

The long-term trend of the EPS is an important number as it indicates the present value of U.S. Xpress Enterprises; it is typically displayed as a percentage and called the EPS growth rate, which at this time is hard to estimate, but revenue growth has been -75.40% over the last twelve months.



Indicators Also to Watch:

Based on the latest filings, there is 0.90% of insider ownership and 45.10% of institutional ownership. Short-interest was 1,052,012, which was 1.64% of shares outstanding. The short-interest ratio or days-to-cover ratio was 3.30. This stock has some short interest, but it might be normal and no need to worry if long the position.

I calculated the beta to be 3.38
