Is Aaron’s Company Inc under- or over-valued?

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Aaron’s Company Inc's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Aaron’s Company Inc shares can be evaluated.

Aaron’s Company Inc's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aaron’s Company Inc's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aaron’s Company Inc shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aaron’s Company Inc shares traded daily (recently around 263425.99118943). Aaron’s Company Inc's SIR currently stands at 2.27. In other words for every 100,000 Aaron’s Company Inc shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2270 shares are currently held short.

However Aaron’s Company Inc's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aaron’s Company Inc shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aaron’s Company Inc shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aaron’s Company Inc's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aaron’s Company Inc shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0185% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aaron’s Company Inc shares, roughly 19 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 Aaron’s Company Inc.

Recently Aaron’s Company Inc has paid out, on average, around 6.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Aaron’s Company Inc shareholders could enjoy a 1.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Aaron’s Company Inc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

While Aaron’s Company Inc's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Aaron’s Company Inc is investing more in its future growth.

Have Aaron’s Company Inc's shares ever split?

Aaron’s Company Inc's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 April 2010. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Aaron’s Company Inc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aaron’s Company Inc shares which in turn could have impacted Aaron’s Company Inc's share price.

Aaron’s Company Inc share price volatility
