Valuing Middlefield Banc stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Middlefield Banc's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Middlefield Banc's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Middlefield Banc shares trade at around 18x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 85,758 Middlefield Banc shares held short by investors – that's known as Middlefield Banc's "short interest". This figure is 12.5% up from 76,216 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Middlefield Banc shares can be evaluated.
Middlefield Banc's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Middlefield Banc shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Middlefield Banc shares traded daily (recently around 12268.669527897). Middlefield Banc's SIR currently stands at 6.99. In other words for every 100,000 Middlefield Banc shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6990 shares are currently held short.
However Middlefield Banc's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Middlefield Banc shares, or, against the total number of tradable Middlefield Banc shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Middlefield Banc's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Middlefield Banc shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0145% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Middlefield Banc shares, roughly 15 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 Middlefield Banc.

Dividend payout ratio: 46.92% of net profits
Recently Middlefield Banc has paid out, on average, around 46.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Middlefield Banc shareholders could enjoy a 2.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Middlefield Banc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
While Middlefield Banc's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Middlefield Banc may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Middlefield Banc's most recent dividend payout was on 15 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Middlefield Banc's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 November 2019. 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 Middlefield Banc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Middlefield Banc shares which in turn could have impacted Middlefield Banc's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Middlefield Banc's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.7233 up to $23.8628. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Middlefield Banc's is 0.8602. This would suggest that Middlefield Banc's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
