That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). 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 Overseas Australia share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 40% of net profits
Recently United Overseas Australia has paid out, on average, around 40% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), United Overseas Australia shareholders could enjoy a 3.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In United Overseas Australia 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.03 per share.
While United Overseas Australia 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that United Overseas Australia may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have United Overseas Australia 's shares ever split?
United Overseas Australia 's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 2 October 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your United Overseas Australia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for United Overseas Australia shares which in turn could have impacted United Overseas Australia 's share price.
United Overseas Australia share price volatility
