Valuing ACCO Brands stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ACCO Brands's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ACCO Brands's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, ACCO Brands shares trade at around 11x 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.
ACCO Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.17. 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 ACCO Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ACCO Brands's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $212.9 million (£156 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a ACCO Brands's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.1 million ACCO Brands shares held short by investors – that's known as ACCO Brands's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 4.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ACCO Brands shares can be evaluated.
ACCO Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ACCO Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ACCO Brands shares traded daily (recently around 599600.29027576). ACCO Brands's SIR currently stands at 6.89. In other words for every 100,000 ACCO Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6890 shares are currently held short.
However ACCO Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ACCO Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable ACCO Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ACCO Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ACCO Brands shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0451% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ACCO Brands shares, roughly 45 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against ACCO Brands.

Dividend payout ratio: 30.95% of net profits
Recently ACCO Brands has paid out, on average, around 30.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ACCO Brands shareholders could enjoy a 3.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ACCO Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.26 per share.
While ACCO Brands's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ACCO Brands may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
ACCO Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
ACCO Brands's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 September 1989. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ACCO Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ACCO Brands shares which in turn could have impacted ACCO Brands's share price.
Over the last 12 months, ACCO Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.4112 up to $9.7801. 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 ACCO Brands's is 2.2861. This would suggest that ACCO Brands's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
