Is ACCO Brands Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

ACCO Brands Corporation's P/E ratio

ACCO Brands Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, ACCO Brands Corporation shares trade at around 24x recent earnings.

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.

ACCO Brands Corporation's PEG ratio

ACCO Brands Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.17. 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 ACCO Brands Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ACCO Brands Corporation's EBITDA

ACCO Brands Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $182 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a ACCO Brands Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting ACCO Brands Corporation shares

There are currently 2.5 million ACCO Brands Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as ACCO Brands Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10% up from 2.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ACCO Brands Corporation shares can be evaluated.

ACCO Brands Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ACCO Brands Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ACCO Brands Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ACCO Brands Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 557065.34216336). ACCO Brands Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.53. In other words for every 100,000 ACCO Brands Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4530 shares are currently held short.

However ACCO Brands Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ACCO Brands Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable ACCO Brands Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ACCO Brands Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ACCO Brands Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0273% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ACCO Brands Corporation shares, roughly 27 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 ACCO Brands Corporation.

ACCO Brands Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 32.5% of net profits

Recently ACCO Brands Corporation has paid out, on average, around 32.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ACCO Brands Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ACCO Brands Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.26 per share.

While ACCO Brands Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ACCO Brands Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

ACCO Brands Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 28 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ACCO Brands Corporation's shares ever split?

ACCO Brands Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 31 August 1989. 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 ACCO Brands Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ACCO Brands Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted ACCO Brands Corporation's share price.

ACCO Brands Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ACCO Brands Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.1181 up to $9.4904. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ACCO.US volatility(beta: 2.25)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ACCO Brands Corporation's is 2.2477. This would suggest that ACCO Brands Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
