Is AECOM under- or over-valued?

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

AECOM's PEG ratio

AECOM's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7617. 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 AECOM's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AECOM's EBITDA

AECOM's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $767.8 million.

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

Shorting AECOM shares

There are currently 1.8 million AECOM shares held short by investors – that's known as AECOM's "short interest". This figure is 9% down from 2.0 million last month.

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

AECOM's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AECOM's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AECOM shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AECOM shares traded daily (recently around 809662.44343891). AECOM's SIR currently stands at 2.21. In other words for every 100,000 AECOM shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2210 shares are currently held short.

However AECOM's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AECOM shares, or, against the total number of tradable AECOM shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AECOM's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AECOM shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0131% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AECOM shares, roughly 13 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 AECOM.

AECOM's environmental, social and governance track record

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like AECOM is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
