Total ESG risk: 39.43

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and ConAgra Foods's overall score of 39.43 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 71st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like ConAgra Foods 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.).

ConAgra Foods's environmental score

Environmental score: 14.99/100

ConAgra Foods's environmental score of 14.99 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ConAgra Foods is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

ConAgra Foods's social score

Social score: 24.32/100

ConAgra Foods's social score of 24.32 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ConAgra Foods is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

ConAgra Foods share dividends

50%

Dividend payout ratio: 49.9% of net profits

Recently ConAgra Foods has paid out, on average, around 49.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ConAgra Foods shareholders could enjoy a 3.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ConAgra Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $1.285 per share.

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

ConAgra Foods's most recent dividend payout was on 1 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ConAgra Foods's shares ever split?

ConAgra Foods's shares were split on a 1285:1000 basis on 9 November 2016. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1285 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ConAgra Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 22.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ConAgra Foods shares which in turn could have impacted ConAgra Foods's share price.

ConAgra Foods share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ConAgra Foods's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.246 up to $41.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CAG.US volatility(beta: 0.57)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ConAgra Foods's is 0.5738. This would suggest that ConAgra Foods's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
