Total ESG risk: 43.51

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Ovintiv's overall score of 43.51 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 79th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Ovintiv's environmental score

Environmental score: 25.83/100

Ovintiv's environmental score of 25.83 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Ovintiv is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Ovintiv's social score

Social score: 16.23/100

Ovintiv's social score of 16.23 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Ovintiv is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Ovintiv scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Ovintiv has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Ovintiv share dividends

11%

Dividend payout ratio: 11.46% of net profits

Recently Ovintiv has paid out, on average, around 11.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ovintiv shareholders could enjoy a 2.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ovintiv's case, that would currently equate to about $0.73 per share.

While Ovintiv's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ovintiv is investing more in its future growth.

Ovintiv's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ovintiv's shares ever split?

Ovintiv's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 26 January 2020. So if you had owned 5 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 Ovintiv shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ovintiv shares which in turn could have impacted Ovintiv's share price.

Ovintiv share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ovintiv's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.1205 up to $62.7164. 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 Ovintiv's is 3.9636. This would suggest that Ovintiv's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
