  • Union First Market Bankshares - Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Oct 23, 2013 3:57 PM | about stocks: UBSH

    The Chart of the Day is Union First Market Bankshares (NASDAQ:UBSH). I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency then panned through the charts using the Flipchart feature. Normally, I find a stock right near the top of the list but today I had to flip through a lot of chart to find one that I really liked.

    It is a community banking organization based in Virginia, providing full-service banking to the Northern, Central, Rappahannock, Tidewater, and Northern Neck regions of Virginia through its bank subsidiaries. Its bank subsidiaries include Union Bank and Trust Company, First Market Bank, Northern Neck State Bank, and Rappahannock National Bank, which provide a range of retail and commercial banking services to consumers and businesses in Virginia.

    • Dividend yield 2.18%
    • Revenue predicted to be up 70.30% next year
