Carnival'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 Carnival.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Carnival's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 25.72
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Carnival's overall score of 25.72 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 29th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Carnival 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.).
Carnival's environmental score
Environmental score: 11.93/100
Carnival's environmental score of 11.93 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Carnival is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Carnival's social score
Social score: 12/100
Carnival's social score of 12 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Carnival is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Carnival's governance score
Governance score: 4.29/100
Carnival's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Carnival is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Carnival's controversy score
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Carnival scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Carnival hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Carnival share dividends
We're not expecting Carnival to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Carnival's shares ever split?
Carnival's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 21 April 2003. So if you had owned 3 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 Carnival shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Carnival shares which in turn could have impacted Carnival's share price.
Carnival share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Carnival's shares have ranged in value from as little as 1129p up to 1890.2p. 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 (LSE average) beta is 1, while Carnival's is 2.185. This would suggest that Carnival's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
