Is Hope Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Hope Bancorp's P/E ratio

Hope 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 6x. In other words, Hope Bancorp shares trade at around 6x 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.

Hope Bancorp's PEG ratio

Hope Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.34. 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 Hope Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Hope Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 30.94% of net profits

Recently Hope Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 30.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hope Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hope Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.

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

Hope Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Hope Bancorp's shares ever split?

Hope Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 June 2004. 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 Hope Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hope Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Hope Bancorp's share price.

Hope Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hope Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.68 up to $16.2139. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HOPE.US volatility(beta: 1.19)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Hope Bancorp's is 1.1866. This would suggest that Hope Bancorp's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
