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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Arrow Electronics shares trade at around 18x 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 "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2557. 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 (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$959.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Arrow Electronics's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.3 million Arrow Electronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Arrow Electronics's "short interest". This figure is 13.8% down from 1.5 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) is the quantity of Arrow Electronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arrow Electronics shares traded daily (recently around 662879.3814433). Arrow Electronics's SIR currently stands at 1.94. In other words for every 100,000 Arrow Electronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1940 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 0.0214% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arrow Electronics shares, roughly 21 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.

We're not expecting Arrow Electronics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Arrow Electronics's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 October 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Arrow Electronics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Arrow Electronics shares which in turn could have impacted Arrow Electronics's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Arrow Electronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.25 up to $85.66. 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 Arrow Electronics's is 1.4617. This would suggest that Arrow Electronics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
