Is ARC Document Solutions under- or over-valued?

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

ARC Document Solutions's P/E ratio

ARC Document Solutions's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, ARC Document Solutions shares trade at around 16x 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.

ARC Document Solutions's PEG ratio

ARC Document Solutions's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.84. 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 ARC Document Solutions's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ARC Document Solutions's EBITDA

ARC Document Solutions's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $39.8 million.

Shorting ARC Document Solutions shares

There are currently 630,669 ARC Document Solutions shares held short by investors – that's known as ARC Document Solutions's "short interest". This figure is 67.5% up from 376,418 last month.

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

ARC Document Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ARC Document Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ARC Document Solutions shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ARC Document Solutions shares traded daily (recently around 280297.33333333). ARC Document Solutions's SIR currently stands at 2.25. In other words for every 100,000 ARC Document Solutions shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2250 shares are currently held short.

However ARC Document Solutions's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ARC Document Solutions shares, or, against the total number of tradable ARC Document Solutions shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ARC Document Solutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ARC Document Solutions shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0166% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ARC Document Solutions shares, roughly 17 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 ARC Document Solutions.

ARC Document Solutions share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 41.54% of net profits

Recently ARC Document Solutions has paid out, on average, around 41.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ARC Document Solutions shareholders could enjoy a 2.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ARC Document Solutions's case, that would currently equate to about $0.05 per share.

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

ARC Document Solutions's most recent dividend payout was on 29 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ARC Document Solutions's shares ever split?

ARC Document Solutions's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 28 July 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ARC Document Solutions shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ARC Document Solutions shares which in turn could have impacted ARC Document Solutions's share price.

ARC Document Solutions share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ARC Document Solutions's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.0256 up to $3.41. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ARC.US volatility(beta: 1.38)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 ARC Document Solutions's is 1.3794. This would suggest that ARC Document Solutions's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
