Is Home Bancshares IncConway AR under- or over-valued?

Valuing Home Bancshares IncConway AR stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Home Bancshares IncConway AR's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Home Bancshares IncConway AR's P/E ratio

Home Bancshares IncConway AR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares trade at around 21x 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.

Home Bancshares IncConway AR's PEG ratio

Home Bancshares IncConway AR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.72. 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 Home Bancshares IncConway AR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares

There are currently 4.5 million Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares held short by investors – that's known as Home Bancshares IncConway AR's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 4.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares can be evaluated.

Home Bancshares IncConway AR's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Home Bancshares IncConway AR's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares traded daily (recently around 800963.20422535). Home Bancshares IncConway AR's SIR currently stands at 5.68. In other words for every 100,000 Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5680 shares are currently held short.

However Home Bancshares IncConway AR's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares, or, against the total number of tradable Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Home Bancshares IncConway AR's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.034% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares, roughly 34 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 Home Bancshares IncConway AR.

Home Bancshares IncConway AR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 31.02% of net profits

Recently Home Bancshares IncConway AR has paid out, on average, around 31.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Home Bancshares IncConway AR shareholders could enjoy a 2.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Home Bancshares IncConway AR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.53 per share.

While Home Bancshares IncConway AR's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Home Bancshares IncConway AR may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Home Bancshares IncConway AR's most recent dividend payout was on 9 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Home Bancshares IncConway AR's shares ever split?

Home Bancshares IncConway AR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 8 June 2016. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Home Bancshares IncConway AR shares which in turn could have impacted Home Bancshares IncConway AR's share price.

Home Bancshares IncConway AR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Home Bancshares IncConway AR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.1131 up to $29.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Home Bancshares IncConway AR's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
