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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 49x. In other words, AECOM shares trade at around 49x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
AECOM's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9334. 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 (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$756.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AECOM's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.7 million AECOM shares held short by investors – that's known as AECOM's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% up from 2.4 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) is the quantity of AECOM shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AECOM shares traded daily (recently around 963998.92857143). AECOM's SIR currently stands at 2.8. In other words for every 100,000 AECOM shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2800 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 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AECOM shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0253% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AECOM shares, roughly 25 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.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like AECOM.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 39.03
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and AECOM's overall score of 39.03 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 71st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
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.).
Environmental score: 11.39/100
AECOM's environmental score of 11.39 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that AECOM is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

We're not expecting AECOM to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, AECOM's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.76 up to $58.44. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while AECOM's is 1.6046. This would suggest that AECOM's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
