Is Archrock under- or over-valued?
Valuing Archrock stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Archrock's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Archrock's P/E ratio
Archrock's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 51x. In other words, Archrock shares trade at around 51x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Archrock's PEG ratio
Archrock's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.56. 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 Archrock's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Archrock's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $325.2 million.

Archrock share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 3.22% of net profits
Recently Archrock has paid out, on average, around 3.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Archrock shareholders could enjoy a 6.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Archrock's case, that would currently equate to about $0.58 per share.
While Archrock's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Archrock is investing more in its future growth.
Archrock's most recent dividend payout was on 16 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Archrock's shares ever split?
Archrock's shares were split on a 13:40 basis on 21 August 2007. So if you had owned 40 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 13 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Archrock shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 207.7% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Archrock shares which in turn could have impacted Archrock's share price.
Archrock share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Archrock's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.9721 up to $10.2754. 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 Archrock's is 2.0127. This would suggest that Archrock's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
