Is Arcosa stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Arcosa's P/E ratio

Arcosa's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Arcosa shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Arcosa's PEG ratio

Arcosa's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.7234. 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 Arcosa's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Arcosa's EBITDA

Arcosa's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $342.6 million.

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

Arcosa share dividends

7%

Dividend payout ratio: 6.9% of net profits

Recently Arcosa has paid out, on average, around 6.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Arcosa shareholders could enjoy a 0.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Arcosa's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

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

Arcosa's most recent dividend payout was on 28 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 July 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Arcosa share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Arcosa's shares have ranged in value from as little as $61.903 up to $89.44. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ACA.US volatility(beta: 0.74)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 Arcosa's is 0.741. This would suggest that Arcosa's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
