Crown's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Crown.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Crown 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.).
Crown's environmental score
Environmental score: 6.78/100
Crown's environmental score of 6.78 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Crown is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Crown's social score
Social score: 2.16/100
Crown's social score of 2.16 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Crown is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Crown share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 12.17% of net profits
Recently Crown has paid out, on average, around 12.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Crown shareholders could enjoy a 1.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Crown's case, that would currently equate to about $0.86 per share.
While Crown's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Crown is investing more in its future growth.
Crown's most recent dividend payout was on 24 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Crown's shares ever split?
Crown's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 31 May 1992. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Crown shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Crown shares which in turn could have impacted Crown's share price.
Crown share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Crown's shares have ranged in value from as little as $65.8113 up to $129.4559. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Crown's is 1.0774. This would suggest that Crown's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
