Is Arconic Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Arconic Corporation's P/E ratio

Arconic 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 16x. In other words, Arconic Corporation 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.

Arconic Corporation's PEG ratio

Arconic Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.96. 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 Arconic 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.

Arconic Corporation's EBITDA

Arconic Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$544 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Arconic Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Arconic Corporation shares

There are currently 4.1 million Arconic Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Arconic Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 37.1% down from 6.6 million last month.

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

Arconic Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Arconic Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arconic Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arconic Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 998139.37198068). Arconic Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.14. In other words for every 100,000 Arconic Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4140 shares are currently held short.

However Arconic Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arconic Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arconic Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arconic Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arconic Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0379% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arconic Corporation shares, roughly 38 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 Arconic Corporation.
