Valuing Arcosa stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Arcosa's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Arcosa's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 29x. In other words, Arcosa shares trade at around 29x recent earnings.
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.
Arcosa's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.3062. 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 Arcosa's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Arcosa's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$278.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Arcosa's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 597,999 Arcosa shares held short by investors – that's known as Arcosa's "short interest". This figure is 27.7% up from 468,363 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Arcosa shares can be evaluated.
Arcosa's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arcosa shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arcosa shares traded daily (recently around 313088.48167539). Arcosa's SIR currently stands at 1.91. In other words for every 100,000 Arcosa shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1910 shares are currently held short.
However Arcosa's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arcosa shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arcosa shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arcosa's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arcosa shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0167% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arcosa shares, roughly 17 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 Arcosa.

Dividend payout ratio: 8.16% of net profits
Recently Arcosa has paid out, on average, around 8.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Arcosa shareholders could enjoy a 0.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Arcosa's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.
While Arcosa's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Arcosa is investing more in its future growth.
Arcosa's most recent dividend payout was on 29 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Arcosa's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.9338 up to $67.85. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Arcosa's is 0.4515. This would suggest that Arcosa's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
