Chesapeake Energy's environmental, social and governance track record

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

Total ESG risk: 41.87
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Chesapeake Energy's overall score of 41.87 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 88th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Chesapeake Energy 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.).
Chesapeake Energy's environmental score
Environmental score: 18.19/100
Chesapeake Energy's environmental score of 18.19 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Chesapeake Energy is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Chesapeake Energy's social score
Social score: 12.95/100
Chesapeake Energy's social score of 12.95 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Chesapeake Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Chesapeake Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 51.47% of net profits
Recently Chesapeake Energy has paid out, on average, around 51.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chesapeake Energy shareholders could enjoy a 6.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chesapeake Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $2.893 per share.
Chesapeake Energy's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Chesapeake Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 1 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Chesapeake Energy's shares ever split?
Chesapeake Energy's shares were split on a 1:200 basis on 14 April 2020. So if you had owned 200 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chesapeake Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chesapeake Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Chesapeake Energy's share price.
Chesapeake Energy share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Chesapeake Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.2837 up to $105. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Chesapeake Energy's is 1.8911. This would suggest that Chesapeake Energy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
