Is United Security Bancshares stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

United Security Bancshares's P/E ratio

United Security Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, United Security Bancshares shares trade at around 7x 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 Security Bancshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 46.37% of net profits

Recently United Security Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 46.37% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), United Security Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 6.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In United Security Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.47 per share.

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

United Security Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 22 July 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 July 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have United Security Bancshares's shares ever split?

United Security Bancshares's shares were split on a 101:100 basis on 4 April 2017. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 101 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your United Security Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for United Security Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted United Security Bancshares's share price.

United Security Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, United Security Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.144 up to $8.4776. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UBFO.US volatility(beta: 0.56)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 Security Bancshares's is 0.561. This would suggest that United Security Bancshares's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
