Arch Coal (NYSE: ARCH)

Arch Coal (NYSE: ARCH) is a $829.56 million company today with a one-year return of -33.1%. Let’s look at its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, its enterprise-value-to-free-cash-flow (EV/CF) ratio, and its debt-to-equity ratio to gauge whether or not it’s a good investment.

The company's P/E ratio of 3.027 is 36.99% lower than the industry average of 4.804. That’s good. A company’s P/E ratio shows its price as a multiple of its earnings per share (EPS). A relatively low P/E ratio is generally an indicator that a company is undervalued.

Arch Coal's enterprise-value-to-free-cash-flow (EV/FCF) ratio of 2.634 is 76.03% lower than its industry average of 10.99. That’s good.

A company’s EV/FCF ratio measures its enterprise value (market cap adjusted for cash holdings and debt) against its free cash flow (how much money the company has after all of its cash outflows). A low EV/FCF ratio indicates that a company is performing efficiently, managing its debt well, and maintaining a strong cash position.

The debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio of Arch Coal has decreased by 5.57% over the last year. That's good.

A company’s D/E ratio equals its total liabilities divided by its shareholder equity. It’s a measure of a company’s financial leverage. A declining D/E ratio indicates that a company is decreasing its debt burden over time, while a rising ratio indicates that a company is taking on more debt over time.
