Perrigo Company'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 Perrigo Company.

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

Perrigo Company share dividends

53%

Dividend payout ratio: 53.19% of net profits

Recently Perrigo Company has paid out, on average, around 53.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Perrigo Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Perrigo Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.98 per share.

Perrigo Company'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.

Perrigo Company's most recent dividend payout was on 20 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Perrigo Company's shares ever split?

Perrigo Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 August 1993. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Perrigo Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Perrigo Company shares which in turn could have impacted Perrigo Company's share price.

Perrigo Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Perrigo Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.1165 up to $49.8565. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PRGO.US volatility(beta: 1)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 Perrigo Company's is 1.0041. This would suggest that Perrigo Company'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).
