Is United Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

United Bancorp's P/E ratio

United 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 10x. In other words, United Bancorp shares trade at around 10x 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.

United Bancorp share dividends

51%

Dividend payout ratio: 50.99% of net profits

Recently United Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 50.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), United Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 4.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In United Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.615 per share.

United Bancorp's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

United Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 19 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have United Bancorp's shares ever split?

United Bancorp's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 28 November 2006. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your United Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for United Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted United Bancorp's share price.

United Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, United Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.1978 up to $20.105. 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 United Bancorp's is 0.2783. This would suggest that United Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
