Is Home BancShares stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Home BancShares's P/E ratio

Home BancShares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Home BancShares shares trade at around 13x 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's PEG ratio

Home BancShares'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's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Home BancShares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 36.36% of net profits

Recently Home BancShares has paid out, on average, around 36.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.9% 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 shareholders could enjoy a 2.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Home BancShares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

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

Home BancShares's most recent dividend payout was on 4 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Home BancShares's shares ever split?

Home BancShares'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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Home BancShares shares which in turn could have impacted Home BancShares's share price.

Home BancShares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Home BancShares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.1583 up to $25.4199. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HOMB.US volatility(beta: 1.06)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Home BancShares's is 1.063. This would suggest that Home BancShares'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).
