Is Middlefield Banc stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 P/E ratio
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 10x. In other words, Middlefield Banc 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.

Middlefield Banc share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 29.27% of net profits
Recently Middlefield Banc has paid out, on average, around 29.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.29% 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 3.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Middlefield Banc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.74 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 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Middlefield Banc's shares ever split?
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.
Middlefield Banc share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Middlefield Banc's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.09 up to $29.48. 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 0.5531. This would suggest that Middlefield Banc's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
