Is Arcosa stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 P/E ratio
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 31x. In other words, Arcosa shares trade at around 31x 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 PEG ratio
Arcosa's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.7234. 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 $282.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Arcosa's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Arcosa share dividends

Recently Arcosa has paid out, on average, around 10.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.43% 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 0.43% 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 28 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
