Is Home Bancorp under- or over-valued?
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 P/E ratio
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 7x. In other words, Home Bancorp shares trade at around 7x 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 Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 15.42% of net profits

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Home Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Home Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.
While Home Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Home Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.
