Is Ares Management Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Ares Management Corporation's P/E ratio

Ares Management 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 47x. In other words, Ares Management Corporation shares trade at around 47x 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.

Ares Management Corporation's PEG ratio

Ares Management Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.63. 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 Ares Management 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.

Ares Management Corporation's EBITDA

Ares Management Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $734.8 million.

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

Shorting Ares Management Corporation shares

There are currently 1.2 million Ares Management Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Ares Management Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18% up from 1.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ares Management Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Ares Management Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ares Management Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ares Management Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ares Management Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 717308.98203593). Ares Management Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.67. In other words for every 100,000 Ares Management Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1670 shares are currently held short.

However Ares Management Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ares Management Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ares Management Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ares Management Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ares Management Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0092% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ares Management Corporation shares, roughly 9 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 Ares Management Corporation.

Ares Management Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 85.38% of net profits

Recently Ares Management Corporation has paid out, on average, around 85.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ares Management Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ares Management Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.74 per share.

Ares Management Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Ares Management Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ares Management Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ares Management Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.3316 up to $81.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ARES.US volatility(beta: 1.03)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ares Management Corporation's is 1.0296. This would suggest that Ares Management Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
