Is ArcBest Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

ArcBest Corporation's P/E ratio

ArcBest 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 14x. In other words, ArcBest Corporation shares trade at around 14x 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.

ArcBest Corporation's PEG ratio

ArcBest Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3. 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 ArcBest 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.

ArcBest Corporation's EBITDA

ArcBest Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $330 million.

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

ArcBest Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 4.89% of net profits

Recently ArcBest Corporation has paid out, on average, around 4.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ArcBest Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ArcBest Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

While ArcBest Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ArcBest Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

ArcBest Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 25 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

ArcBest Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ArcBest Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.7416 up to $125. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ARCB.US volatility(beta: 1.55)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ArcBest Corporation's is 1.5469. This would suggest that ArcBest Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
