Is Arch Capital Group under- or over-valued?

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

Arch Capital Group's P/E ratio

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

Arch Capital Group's PEG ratio

Arch Capital Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.24. 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 Arch Capital Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Arch Capital Group shares

There are currently 4.8 million Arch Capital Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Arch Capital Group's "short interest". This figure is 14.7% up from 4.2 million last month.

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

Arch Capital Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Arch Capital Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arch Capital Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arch Capital Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Arch Capital Group's SIR currently stands at 2.89. In other words for every 100,000 Arch Capital Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2890 shares are currently held short.

However Arch Capital Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arch Capital Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arch Capital Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arch Capital Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arch Capital Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0123% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arch Capital Group shares, roughly 12 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 Arch Capital Group.
