Is AECOM under- or over-valued?

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

AECOM's PEG ratio

AECOM's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8546. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into AECOM's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.


AECOM's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$797.2 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a AECOM's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

How to short and sell AECOM stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "ACM.US"
  3. Choose your position size.

There are currently 2.0 million AECOM stocks held short by investors – that's known as AECOM's "short interest". This figure is 28.5% up from 1.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AECOM stocks can be evaluated.

AECOM's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AECOM's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AECOM stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AECOM stocks traded daily (recently around 677444.63087248). AECOM's SIR currently stands at 2.98. In other words for every 100,000 AECOM stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2980 stocks are currently held short.

However AECOM's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AECOM stocks, or, against the total number of tradable AECOM stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AECOM's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 AECOM stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.015% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable AECOM stocks, roughly 15 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AECOM.

AECOM's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like AECOM.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

AECOM's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 39.03

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and AECOM's overall score of 39.03 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 71st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like AECOM is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

AECOM's environmental score

Environmental score: 11.39/100

AECOM's environmental score of 11.39 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that AECOM is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

AECOM's social score

Social score: 25.22/100

AECOM's social score of 25.22 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that AECOM is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

AECOM's governance score

Governance score: 15.91/100

AECOM's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that AECOM is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

AECOM's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. AECOM scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that AECOM has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
