Is U-SBancorp under- or over-valued?

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

U-SBancorp's P/E ratio

U-SBancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, U-SBancorp shares trade at around 11x 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.

U-SBancorp's PEG ratio

U-SBancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0602. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into U-SBancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

U-SBancorp's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like U-SBancorp.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

U-SBancorp's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 28.04

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and U-SBancorp's overall score of 28.04 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 46th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like U-SBancorp is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

U-SBancorp's environmental score

Environmental score: 0.11/100

U-SBancorp's environmental score of 0.11 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that U-SBancorp is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

U-SBancorp's social score

Social score: 11.69/100

U-SBancorp's social score of 11.69 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that U-SBancorp is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

U-SBancorp's governance score

Governance score: 12.95/100

U-SBancorp's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that U-SBancorp is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

U-SBancorp's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. U-SBancorp scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that U-SBancorp hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

U-SBancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 41.35% of net profits

Recently U-SBancorp has paid out, on average, around 41.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), U-SBancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In U-SBancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.84 per share.

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

U-SBancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have U-SBancorp's shares ever split?

U-SBancorp's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 16 April 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your U-SBancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for U-SBancorp shares which in turn could have impacted U-SBancorp's share price.

U-SBancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, U-SBancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.745 up to $62.4372. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

USB.US volatility(beta: 0.99)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while U-SBancorp's is 0.9874. This would suggest that U-SBancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
