Investar Holding Corp. : ISTR-US: Dividend Analysis : January 04th, 2017 (record date) : By the numbers : March 1, 2017

Our analysis is based on comparing Investar Holding Corp. with the following peers – Capital City Bank Group, Inc., Sound Financial Bancorp, Inc., SB Financial Group, Inc. and SBT Bancorp, Inc. (CCBG-US, SFBC-US, SBFG-US and SBTB-US).

Investar Holding Corp.’s dividend yield is 0.21 percent and its dividend payout is 3.83 percent. This compares to a peer average dividend yield of 1.10 percent and a payout level of 17.39 percent. This relatively lagging dividend performance would normally spur the company to consider some dividend action going forward – but for the fact that the current dividend quality score of NA out of a possible score of 100 looks weak.
