Valuing Home Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Home Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Home Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Home Bancorp shares trade at around 8x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 80,891 Home Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Home Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 8% up from 74,918 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Home Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Home Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Home Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Home Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 21120.365535248). Home Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.83. In other words for every 100,000 Home Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3830 shares are currently held short.
However Home Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Home Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Home Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Home Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Home Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0118% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Home Bancorp shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Home Bancorp.

Dividend payout ratio: 17.58% of net profits
Recently Home Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 17.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Home Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Home Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.89 per share.
While Home Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Home Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.
Home Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 19 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Home Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.8436 up to $39.85. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Home Bancorp's is 0.7339. This would suggest that Home Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
