Is Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation's P/E ratio

Ares Commercial Real Estate 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 9x. In other words, Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares trade at around 9x 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 Corporation's PEG ratio

Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation'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 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.

Shorting Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares

There are currently 794,832 Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14.4% up from 695,085 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 409707.21649485). Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.94. In other words for every 100,000 Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1940 shares are currently held short.

However Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0175% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation shares, roughly 18 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 Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation.

Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation share dividends

79%

Dividend payout ratio: 78.7% of net profits

Recently Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation has paid out, on average, around 78.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.51% 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 Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 8.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.

Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation'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 Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.0258 up to $16.2138. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ACRE.US volatility(beta: 1.36)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
