Is Archer-Daniels-Midland Company under- or over-valued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Archer-Daniels-Midland Company'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 Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares

There are currently 4.6 million Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's "short interest". This figure is 7.5% up from 4.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares can be evaluated.

Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's SIR currently stands at 1.73. In other words for every 100,000 Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1730 shares are currently held short.

However Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0082% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares, roughly 8 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 Archer-Daniels-Midland Company.

Archer-Daniels-Midland Company share dividends

31%

Recently Archer-Daniels-Midland Company has paid out, on average, around 30.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.46 per share.

While Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Archer-Daniels-Midland Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Have Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's shares ever split?

Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 29 August 2001. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Archer-Daniels-Midland Company shares which in turn could have impacted Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's share price.
