Is Ares Commercial Real Estate stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Ares Commercial Real Estate's P/E ratio

Ares Commercial Real Estate's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Ares Commercial Real Estate shares trade at around 11x 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.

Ares Commercial Real Estate's PEG ratio

Ares Commercial Real Estate's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.57. 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 Ares Commercial Real Estate's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ares Commercial Real Estate share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 105.95% of net profits

Recently Ares Commercial Real Estate has paid out, on average, around 105.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ares Commercial Real Estate shareholders could enjoy a 11.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ares Commercial Real Estate's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.

Ares Commercial Real Estate'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.

Ares Commercial Real Estate's most recent dividend payout was on 16 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ares Commercial Real Estate share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ares Commercial Real Estate's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.874 up to $16.029. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ACRE.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Ares Commercial Real Estate's is 1.2681. This would suggest that Ares Commercial Real Estate's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
