Is Arm under- or over-valued?

Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value. Check out the Arm P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA.

Arm's current stock price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1389x. In other words, Arm's stocks trade at around 1389x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United States stock markets on average as of November 09, 2023 (20.44). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

However, Arm's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the industry or those of similar companies.

Arm's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2893. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

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

However, it's sensible to consider Arm's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Arm's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $244.5 million.

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

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.
