Valuing ArcBest Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ArcBest Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ArcBest 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 27x. In other words, ArcBest Corporation shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
ArcBest Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3. 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 ArcBest 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.

There are currently 621,085 ArcBest Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as ArcBest Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 20% up from 517,357 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ArcBest Corporation shares can be evaluated.

ArcBest Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.12. In other words for every 100,000 ArcBest Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3120 shares are currently held short.
However ArcBest Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ArcBest Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable ArcBest Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ArcBest Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ArcBest Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0348% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ArcBest Corporation shares, roughly 35 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 ArcBest Corporation.

Recently ArcBest Corporation has paid out, on average, around 11.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ArcBest Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ArcBest Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
While ArcBest Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ArcBest Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Over the last 12 months, ArcBest Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.4196 up to $46.25. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ArcBest Corporation's is 1.8325. This would suggest that ArcBest Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
