United Bankshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 48.98% of net profits

Recently United Bankshares has paid out, on average, around 48.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), United Bankshares shareholders could enjoy a 4.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In United Bankshares's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.

While United Bankshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that United Bankshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

United Bankshares's most recent dividend payout was on 3 July 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have United Bankshares's shares ever split?

United Bankshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 March 1998. 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 United Bankshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for United Bankshares shares which in turn could have impacted United Bankshares's share price.

United Bankshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, United Bankshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.68 up to $43.3566. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UBSI.US volatility(beta: 1.04)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while United Bankshares's is 1.0447. This would suggest that United Bankshares's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
