HOMB is an agressive regional bank looking to buy, buy, buy. The Liberty acquisition in Arkansas is just the start of what should be a buying spree, especially in Florida and across the state line into Alabama or GA.

I expect a $50 price by late 2015, and a dividend to boot.

Liberty acquisition will be accretive immediately. Market recovery in Florida gives huge upside. NIM and efficiency ratio of core Central Arkansas operations are off the charts.

As confidence in the recovery breaks down, equities will fall and the dollar will rise. Financials, commodities, and cyclical stocks will be the most negatively affected. P/E Ratio of 59.

This small bank holding company can't compete in today's big cap bank era. The best hope is that one of the larger banks buys homb at a premium.

HOMB had ipo of $22.70 abou three years ago and has gone nowhere. It is an underfinanced small bank holding company in Arkansas which will be unable to compete with larger regional banks. The management appears to be somewhat incompetent with the ceo and major stockholder being a previous trailer salesman. I am getting out with a small loss.

Home BancShares, Inc. (HOMB) witnessed a successful launch of initial public offering last year with proceeds to be used for working capital needs, investments in subsidiaries and to finance bank acquisitions. Being a financial holding company headquartered in Conway, HOMB has five wholly owned community bank subsidiaries which provide a broad range of commercial and retail banking and related financial services to businesses, real estate developers and investors, individuals, and municipalities.

Currently it leads deposit market in many places of Arkansas and has entered into Florida in June 2005 through the acquisition of Marine Bank. In order to sustain leadership in Arkanas and grow in Florida, company has gone for organic growth and had opened around 9 branches in 2006. It concentrates on opening in current market and attractive new market areas as well, enabling them to strengthen its lead and expand further. Due to financial strengths, strategic acquisitions are considered, with primary focus on Arkansas and Southwestern Florida.

Most of the revenue is generated from interest on loans and investments, service charges, and mortgage banking income, with around 22% from non- interest income and 78% from net interest income. For year 2006 company witnessed an increase in net interest income and non-interest income, but net interest margin declined to 3.4%, due to competitive pressures and a slightly inverted yield curve.

Non performing assets (NPAs) showed an admirable decline of 45% over previous year, and recorded NPAs to asset ratio of 0.22%. The company recorded strong capital adequacy ratio. Efficiency ratio is slightly on higher side. Deposits are primary source of funding and with expansion it’s going to get better. Thus considering all factors, strong performance is expected out of the stock in the coming year.

HOMB maintains a strong growth strategy. HOMB boasts solid earnings and limited loan loss while still possessing exceptional loan loss reserves- a crucial factor when considering a financial stock. Excellent Buy.

Discovered this from CAPS' list of stocks needing more picks.

VERY intriguing!

Here's why I say it'll outperform:

1) ROA and ROE are positive...

2) Margins are very good (49.11% operating margin and 19.99% profit margin)

and best yet...

3) It's current market cap is about $390 million, yet its entreprise value is nearly $660 million.

Therefore, this stock could easily see 60-65% appreciation over the next few years as the market begins to notice this stock.

I'm in.

These guys, Mr. Allison and Mr. Lieblong, who started this bank know nothing but "earn money"! They are known locally in the HUGE $ area just outside of Little Rock, AR in the town of Conway which has 3 colleges and has had a population explosion from 20 to 50 thousand in the last 20 years. These guys know nothing but "make money".
