From a fundamental point of view, ABM stock looks all-around average, at best. Moreover, ABM stock offers a solid price-sales ratio of 0.54, but its price-earnings ratio of 22.85 is relatively high given the company’s market cap of $3.3 billion. Overall, ABM’s growth rate, valuation, and dividend yield don’t provide much worth getting excited about, but ABM stock could prove to be a modest long-term winner.

Short interest, meanwhile, has been on the rise. Up 16.4% during the past two reporting periods, this accounts for 2.5% of the stock's available float, or less than two day's worth of pent-up buying power.
