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.

Shorting Arch Resources shares

There are currently 2.8 million Arch Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as Arch Resources's "short interest". This figure is 14% down from 3.3 million last month.

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

Arch Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Arch Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arch Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arch Resources shares traded daily (recently around 366079.12371134). Arch Resources's SIR currently stands at 7.76. In other words for every 100,000 Arch Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7760 shares are currently held short.

However Arch Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arch Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arch Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arch Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.19% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arch Resources shares in existence, roughly 190 shares are currently held short) or 0.1893% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arch Resources shares, roughly 189 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Arch Resources.

Arch Resources share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 122.81% of net profits

Recently Arch Resources has paid out, on average, around 122.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Arch Resources shareholders could enjoy a 7.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Arch Resources's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

Arch Resources's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Arch Resources's most recent dividend payout was on 12 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Arch Resources's shares ever split?

Arch Resources's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 3 August 2015. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Arch Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Arch Resources shares which in turn could have impacted Arch Resources's share price.

Arch Resources share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Arch Resources's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.8 up to $57.58. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ARCH.US volatility(beta: 1.09)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 Arch Resources's is 1.0885. This would suggest that Arch Resources's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
