Uber Technologies Is Overvalued at Today's Prices:

Compared to the Technology sector's average of 26.5, Uber Technologies has a trailing twelve month price to earnings (P/E) ratio of -7.5 and, based on its Eps guidance of -0.22, an expected P/E ratio of -113.5.

The firm's price to earnings growth (PEG) is -0.21, because its current P/E ratio is negative — so in this case the PEG ratio is not a meaningful indicator of the company's valuation.

Uber Technologies's price to book (P/B) ratio is 8.0 compared to its sector average of 5.57. The company may be overvalued in terms of its assets.
