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".

MBCN.US volatility(beta: 0.55)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
