Is Arrow Electronics under- or over-valued?

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

Arrow Electronics's P/E ratio

Arrow Electronics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Arrow Electronics shares trade at around 15x 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.

Arrow Electronics's PEG ratio

Arrow Electronics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3087. 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 Arrow Electronics's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Arrow Electronics's EBITDA

Arrow Electronics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.1 billion.

Shorting Arrow Electronics shares

There are currently 1.7 million Arrow Electronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Arrow Electronics's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% up from 1.6 million last month.

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

Arrow Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Arrow Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arrow Electronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arrow Electronics shares traded daily (recently around 459159.1160221). Arrow Electronics's SIR currently stands at 3.62. In other words for every 100,000 Arrow Electronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3620 shares are currently held short.

However Arrow Electronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arrow Electronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arrow Electronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arrow Electronics's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arrow Electronics shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0252% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arrow Electronics shares, roughly 25 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 Arrow Electronics.
